How about making the Parameter Knob do something when you're editing?

It should automatically advance to the next item in the section you are editing.

For example...
If I'm editing the VCA envelope and turn the attack knob and then use the Value Knob to accurately dial in a value, turning the Parameter Knob should then take you to the next setting for that section (i.e the VCA decay), followed by its Sustain setting, then release etc etc.

At the moment turning the parameter knob does precisely nothing!!! :(

Because they are 'notched' the Parameter & Value Knobs are far easier to dial in specific amounts and it'd be much quicker to be able to 'step through' related parameters in a section using the parameter knob than having to physically jump from the value knob to another in the VCA section itself.

I would like to have a knob that is assignable to Mix/Balance between the 2 layers. Volumes of the layers are already established within the layers but a knob that can adjust in real time would be super useful, like on my old CS-80. There is already the knob in the Effects section called Mix. When the Effects button is off, make it a mix layer knob.

I was just thinking about how this should be a modulation option yesterday... I would specifically like to use the modwheel for this.

You can already do this in the Mod Matrix by assigning the Mod Wheel to Amp Env Amt for each layer. Make one layer's Mod Amount -127 and the other layer's Mod Amount +127 and turn its Amp Env Amt to 0. Now stack the two layers and use the mod wheel to mix between them.

I understand that this would work, but when I play live, Aftertouch is normally used for vibrato and my Modwheel is usually reserved for affecting filter type parameters. Having a dedicated knob to make real time changes in the layer mix would be the best option.

HOLD functionality user defined:

1. the 'DSI' way: adding notes to until full polyphony is reached
2. the 'regular' way: latch the played tones / chords until next tone / chord is played.

Thanks.

So many great ideas here to improve this already mind blowing machine. I love my Rev 2.

It'd be fun if the Clock "Divide" was a mod destination. This could get some exciting unpredictable rhythms going with the arpeggiator.

Big thumbs up to making the gated sequencers more hands-on like on the Prophet 08. Use 16 of the LPF and VCA ENV knobs for gated sequencer control.

FX: I love the sound of the HPF. What about adding a second sweet digital LPF?

Happy synthesizing!

Big +1 for the original parameter value being indicated somehow. The little dot that shows up in the OB-6 display would be perfect. No need to reinvent the wheel here. Keep things standard across the range of instruments.

Great ideas.

Digital bandpass filter? (The digital HPF is good.)

Just discovered the "Show" button...Because someone mentioned it earlier in this thread but didn't really explain it. I only knew it as the Misc Parameters button. Didn't even see the tiny "show" text until I studied the panel for a few minutes. For anyone else that might be wondering, pressing and holding the show/misc parameters button and then turning a knob will display the original stored parameter value for that knob without changing it. Exactly what I have been needing for the last few weeks. Damn, why isn't this in the manual? or Did I miss it?

It's a good feature. Often I get out of habit of using it. A great way to make a subtle move.

I do not know if these have been requested before... but I'd really like to see these effetcs features:

1. Ping Pong Delay.
2. String Ensemble (preferably modelled after the Eminent E310 Unique / Solina).
3. Frequency Shifter.
4. Formant Filter.
5. Pitch Shifter.

The FX section of the REV2 is some of what sets the synth apart from the older P08, so the more varied FX options, the more versatile this beast becomes. Any other FX added will greatly increase the sound design potential, so by all means, if you can DSI; put more of them FX in there!

Quite a few good suggestions - just above here #53 is a good idea.

I'd like to see several little changes, some of them just practical things. I'd like to see a button for midi settings ON/OFF. You'd set up your synth for a DAW or whatever (ex: clock/slave, local/off, etc), then just press ON to remember/activate the settings. If you want to make some changes to sounds/settings you just press midi 'OFF'.

I have to say one thing that the P6 and OB6 excel At is the simplicity of its interface because all the global functions like these are literally right there on the front panel.

I'm not certain if this is a mistake by DSI or what, but one thing that is constantly annoying me is that if I have a program which is a stacked program, then I want the poly sequencer to record into BOTH LAYERS at the same time... currently, you have to record the same sequence twice, once for each layer which is not only tedious and trivial, but also impossible since it's basically not possible to record them with the same velocity values.

A stacked program are meant to be used as a "single program", so it is only logical that it should play the same sequence with the same velocities.

If I press and hold the "Edit Layer B" button so that it flashes for editing both layers, then I am not able to initiate the record button at all...

Summa Summarum: I'd REALLY like to see the recording being possible when the Edit Layer B button is blinking, storing the played sequence into both layers at the same time.... please. :)

What about using the function "Copy Seq A to B"?

It's an option yes, but I really think that it should be an automatic thing when the Layer B edit button is blinking... everything else is edited on both layers in this mode...

OMG I didn't know you could hold the record button to transpose! Thank you so much. I'm using this feature now and I don't personally think I'd like it to transpose without holding something since you can play along to a sequence then transpose it only when you want to.

Then again, if you wanted to play along to it you could just make a split patch and be able to transpose sequence with one finger. There should be a choice to toggle 1 finger transpose within params somewhere.

In the meantime though, you can one finger tranpose a gated sequence its just much harder to program in notey things on the fly.

E: I just noticed the hold record to transpose works kind of strange. Its not based off the first note in your sequence, rather the sequence is sort of locked to c2 no matter what notes you played, so transposing on the fly requires a bit of thought unlike the unison chord mode which is much more intuitive. This brings me to another suggestion.

I'd love to be able to use the ARP on a chord held my unison chord mode.
