Prophet Rev2 / Re: Amazing presets for the rev2
« Last post by jg666 on Today at 05:58:23 AM »
I had the same problems with midi-ox when trying to load the GEO Synths patches. It would get so far and then stop and I'd have to do them in smaller batches for some reason.
I've ended up getting the Soundtower Editor as well and it's much easier moving patches around using that :)

Back when the Prophet '08 came out it was widely panned for its "harsh" sound. Yet 9 years later, the Rev2 is almost universally loved. What's the difference?

Maybe the difference simply is "9 years later"... given the popularity of prophet 08 people have had enough time and exposure to acclimatize to the sound and start to appreciate it. Taste evolves?

My Korg synth only shows the value once youv'e passed through the current value so I have to assume that this is fairly standard behaviour?

The Rev2 is the first synth that I've used where it even gives me an option of "pot mode". So I am thankful for that, but even if the way "passthru" works on the rev is standard, I'll still voice my recommendation on what could be changed.

I guess my idea is more along the lines of: As soon as you turn a knob in "passthru" mode, it behaves as if you are holding down the show button, until you turn to the passthru point and start changing the value. I think that would be pretty sweet :)

With Jacks in A+B, No split or stack playing same or notes in sequence (with note off in between), 8 notes of layer A output to jack A and the next 8 notes of layer A output to jack B. The same occurs when selecting Layer B but then for layer B sounds.

Effects off, All mod routing offs, no ARP, multi mode off, no unison.  Examples: U1P68.
How to get all 16 notes for Layer A to output on A without having to unplug the jacks from B?
You canít. If youíre plugged into a mixer you have to monitor from there, the rev 2 headphone jack will only output layer A

I've noticed that Sweetwater has your unit back on sale as a demo for $1799.99. "Demo" isn't the correct way to list this if it was malfunctioning as you say. Not too sure about them (sweetwater) now after this. Seems kind of shady on their part. Oh well.

They had that one available before I returned mine, though.

So I sent the Prologue 16 back, after two weeks of putting up with unusual tuning gremlins in the lower octaves / random squawks in the middle range. It's just not yet ready for live performance, and surely not complete, in the QC sense of the word.

If those issues are resolved in the future, perhaps I'll consider a used 8-voice unit, but frankly, after some comparisons with other gear, the overall tone just isn't there (in spite of the differences due to the 2-pole filter). I'm purely speculating, but I think that the digital FX section is always in-circuit; that might account for the lack of headroom with more complex patches.

The spec is great, but the execution leaves much to be desired-which (as an aside) is going to make life somewhat complicated / "interesting" for the Korg USA folks, now that they're distributing Waldorf as well.

What I replaced it with, on the other hand...  ;) ...see profile change!

Congrats on the OB-6 acquisition. Love mine to death. I've noticed that Sweetwater has your unit back on sale as a demo for $1799.99.

Sequential Prophet-6 / Re: Wish list: Disable Program Change
« Last post by u on Yesterday at 03:56:13 PM »
Hi Peter,
I had the same problem with OB6 connect to P6. I asked for clearance / implementation in the OS in August 2017 on both
instruments. The reply was:
"There is no ability to disable program change messages from being sent from the OB-6 natively. In this case, I would suggest that following product for inline MIDI message filtering.
http://www.midisolutions.com/prodevp.htm"

The other thing is that the master volume (secound unit) does the same, when twisting it at the first one - how can I stop this at the second ? - Nothing mentioned in the manual...
Answer open...

Every Synth I know has the posibillity to disable ProgramChange !

@DSI: A lot of people need this implementations in the OS - urgent !
Thanks.

Also, DSI confirmed, you will only hear 8 notes play back on a 16 voice unit when playing a single layer (Stack/Split not enabled), and with multi-mode disabled.  In my experience this results in 8 notes using layer A and then the next 8 notes using layer B getting the effect of "dropped" notes on the A or B output. In other words... not sure how you can force 16 notes polyphony on one layer in non-stack/split mode.

To be clear, you get 16 voices on a single layer, A or B, if you're not using stack or split as long as you do not have any cables plugged into the B outputs. i.e. if you're connected to the main outs. There's no reason for you to ever be connected to the B outputs only, so if you're using the B outs then it means you want to process layers A and B separately or run in a bi-timbral configuration.

Is the polyphonic step sequencer control available on the VST version??
