Prophet 12 / Re: Prophet 12 ARP LOSING TEMPO SYNC with DAW
« Last post by studiodc on Today at 06:37:16 PM »
I find that using external masters for DAW sync isn't reliable in most cases and it's best to set the DAW to master, send clock to the keyboard, and set the keyboard as slave. I don't use Cubase so I can't help you with that, but that's the direction I'd go.

Note this isn't unique to the P12 by any means. I have this issue with nearly every DAW and every external clock mechanism so far. It's no big deal, the DAW is the clock master. If I want different sync to my rig (as I usually do) then I slave the clock master for the rest of the rig to the DAW - in my case my drum machine is always the MIDI master clock and it (and only it) slaves to the DAW. Everything else slaves to it.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Rev2 Dump to Tetra?

You can dump from the Tetra to the Rev2, but I’m 99.9% certain  that you cannot dump from the Rev2 to the Tetra.

Hey Ant, I'm surprised you weren't one of the first to go in for the Prophet 5/10 Rev 4.  I know your vintage taste.

Well, I'm waiting (and waiting) for the P5 I ordered in early December! I sold my Prophet 6 to help cover the cost, and have my gf's P5 to tide me over, so... I'm hanging in alright.

I remember reading somewhere that they used Peter Gabriel's P5 (rev 3 I think?) that he lent them for The Hurting. Supposedly he lived around them, but Roland was jobless living with his wife and I'd assume Peter was living in a nicer neighborhood at the time and wouldn't have heard of them (being it was TfF debut album). Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Anyhow, his assessment is pretty much general consensus. Roland synths, especially the JP8 are more associated with crystalline (or sparkly) sounds. Other than owning an über expensive Fairlight &/or Synclavier, at the time it would have covered the bases you would want covered having both a JP8 and P5. The DX7 was released the same year as The Hurting.

Love the mu:zines site, it's a great resource.

Some vintage Prophet-5 reviews:

Rev 1, 1978: http://www.muzines.co.uk/articles/sequential-circuits-prophet-5/8656

Rev 3, 1982: http://www.muzines.co.uk/articles/prophet-five/4609

A throwback from 1988: http://www.muzines.co.uk/articles/return-of-the-prophet/378

Funny to see the comments about P5 depreciation in 1988.  What goes down must come up I guess :)

Prophet Rev2 / Re: REV2 tuning shifted globally
« Last post by maxter on Today at 04:43:36 PM »
Yup. Did all there is to do, in various orders. Nothing helped. Only changing the OS.

I've had even more peculiar problems though, so I wasn't too surprised. One particular OS "transposed" all NRPN's up 120 steps. Just that particular OS, so I degraded to the previous OS until an even newer OS was released that worked fine (in this regard). I tried several OS's during my trouble-shooting, re-calibrating etc etc, to try to find an explanation, but nothing. I posted about it here, but it seems noone had experienced the same problem (of those who use NRPN's). Still, noone has a clue as to how or why this could and did happen, afaik.

I don't see a point in trying to find out why things don't work on the Rev2 anymore, ie troubleshooting, as sometimes there seem to be specific bugs to specific units. Or as in this case, reverse bug behaviors between different units and OS's.

It's like the Rev2 is haunted.

And if I can geek out in a "me me me!" way for a moment, it's lovely to see One Two Testing mag again. That was the first "real" publication to ever review my music, back when I was a basement-dwelling synth-fiend teen.
