The Prophet 5 has got a tune button, a Juno-106, JX3-P, Siel,
Matrix-1000 etc. pp. don't suffer from the auto-detune issue at all,
even many Moogs provide a stable tuning. I always claim that there
seldom is the need to "program" modern granular synths in a
complicated way, many of those allegedly new sounds already could be
archived using e.g. an Oberheim SEM or even emulations of this and
similar synth.
