Title: Feature Request: Prophet 5 voice allocation style on the Prophet 6
Post by: plplpl on December 24, 2020, 09:09:36 PM
The currently implemented round robin style in the Prophet 6 is useful in many scenarios, but the "retrigger until stolen" method of the Prophet 5 is key for piano patches and consistent filter FM tuning when using poly mod!

It would be a dream come true to be able to toggle between voice allocation styles.
Any chance this option can be added in an update?

interesting, could you explain this in more detail, how does this make the p5 sound different?

It's definitely an important aspect of the character/sound, especially when it comes to using the Vintage Mode / Slop, or other per voice variation (ie:  Poly LFOs in different phase).   

Repeatedly hitting the same key with the classic P5 voice allocation gets the same Oscillators and Filter re-assigned each time, vs Round Robin where each consecutive key press on a single key cycles through the voices... giving potentially a slightly different fine tuning, filter cutoff, and env ADR stage timings.   

Would be nice to have on P6 and Rev 2 and other instruments...  It's awesome that both modes are available/switchable on P5.  Also, Polybrute has several classic/modern voice allocation selections, which I've been enjoying experimenting with.

Thank you! I understand now, would be lovely if the p6 (or rev2) would get this option to choose between both modes!
