8 note sequence - 4 notes sound, next four don't - why?

8 note sequence - 4 notes sound, next four don't - why?
« on: August 02, 2020, 11:25:31 AM »
For a number of patches (e.g., factory bank 4, patch 122), I can play four notes in a row but the next four then fail to sound. This pattern then repeats. This doesn't affect all patches, but enough.

Why is this happening? How can I fix it? Ideas appreciated.

Many thanks.

I copypasted OneLittleFonzie's comment from that thread:

"The 8 voice board sends half of it voices to output A and the others to B. If you donít connect a plug to B, those 4 voiced get merged with the first 4 into output A. Regardless whether you use multi, no multi, stack or split. It is hardwired. Same for the expansion board. The first 4 go to A, the others to B, unless you donít plug anything in the B output."

All 8 voices should go to output A, as long as you haven't connected anything to the B outputs.
If I remember correctly, you had to set this up in the global menu on the Prophet'08 (Output B: ON) but on the Rev2 it should be hardwired so that if nothing is connected to the B jacks, all voices SHOULD go to Output A.

Thank you! It turned out I was using the B instead of the A outputs. Two cables in the A outputs and nothing in the B outputs seems to fix this...
