I'd like Pro-3 style switchable filters but in an 8-16 voice poly, with a 5 octave keyboard.
Here’s hoping that Dave’s August synth release will deliver on just that; if it does, I’m buying it.


I can't see it being the synth he announces in August but I can see it happening next year.

Why not? And if not, what do you think August's release will be?

"Easier to implement" and "A different kind of musician" I just don't see applying to what is essentially a flagship synth. I just feel it would be a tad odd to release two flagship synths in one year.

What I can see however is a replacement for the MOPHOX4 based on the Prophet REV2 architecture. Just a smaller and simpler four voice poly synth.

As much as I would like to see something radical like a vocoder or guitar synthesizer system or something geared towards "A different kind of musician" I don't think Dave wants to step outside the realm of keyboards anymore (Save for maybe a new drum machine but I can't see him doing it on his own and with Roger Linn already working on a new drum machine I don't think Dave would bother). Maybe "a different kind of musician" simply just means "beginner" or "more affordable". While there may seem like there are plenty of options for that on the market already (Korg Minilogue etc) most of them feature mini keys and I think Sequential offering a USA made affordable four voice poly synth option to their catalog might be a nice addition. Even for people who own higher tier gear like a Prophet 6. Think of it as Sequential's Juno to compliment their Jupiter if you get my drift.

I was kind of hoping “different kind of musician” might mean something like “someone who wants to play more than one note at a time”. Also I wondered if it might be a Prophet 12 “replacement” - that didn’t have a sequencer, so my thinking was a synth which doesn’t have the (Pro 3) sequencer would be “easier to implement”. (So would a 5-octave Prophet 6 to be fair.)

Interesting if they do bring out something in the Mopho 4x mould though.

Whatever it is, I’m sure it’ll be great and I look forward to seeing and hearing it in due course.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Will there ever be a new OS?
« Last post by guyaguy on Yesterday at 05:38:50 PM »
I'm happy, too.  If that update were released today, I'd finally get a Rev2...or two...or three....

Downloadable SEM filters?!
New talent on/off parameter in global settings?!

Pro 3 / Re: Pro 3 - MIDI sync/timing issue
« Last post by cbmd on Yesterday at 04:21:50 PM »
The onset of the sequencer is not quantized to external clock.  If the sequencer is started manually, it will start immediately relative to the PLAY button being pressed.  If you wish to have the sequencer started precisely in time with the external clock, you should set the MIDI CLOCK MODE to IN so the sequencer responds to the MIDI play message sent to it by your DAW when you start playback.

Regarding the issue when transposing the sequence, you should set sequence RESTART off.  This will keep the sequencer from restarting from zero when the sequence is transposed.

Looks like you're not just knowing THAT it is coming, but even WHAT is coming?

Prophet 12 / Re: Prophet 12 Music
« Last post by silvain on Yesterday at 03:12:36 PM »
Hi, more music with the P12:
https://youtu.be/2ZMUBeSPOe0
The best kick drum of the last two years, now that I know how to handle it. Also synth bass, high strings, one "guitar" layer and the brass/synth stabs.
And for good measure:
https://youtu.be/HujCE6RqjrY
An epic ballad four years in coming :) No vocalist. :) Synth bass, pad layering and some ornamentation. Paired with old DX7 and JV1080, as well as some open source synth/sampler magic courtesey of Yoshimi and LinuxSampler. Also many, many thanks to the wonderful Beccy Schaefer for her great vocals and Joy Bausch for guitars.
Just thought it might be appreciated, even if not P12-centric in nature. It is an indispensible and inherent part to my work!

I'd like second that sentiment.. We havnt had an update in ages.. or even word that there is one in the pipeline.. And I think after the substantial cost of the rev2 us users deserve a finished product!!

Yes!

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Slow/Poor MIDI Response
« Last post by Aaron on Yesterday at 02:20:36 PM »
Hey there, I'm now watching this thread and wondering, likewise, if anyone has found an answer to this? I have been having the exact same issue with the velocity/volume of the REV 2 being inconsistent , when coming from MIDI, with the velocity/volume when played directly from the REV 2. I'm also using Ableton Live, so if there be any insight in relation to Live transmitting midi data out to hardware, I would be super appreciative for that as well. I've had the issue in both Live 8 and 10. Kind of makes you want to cry when you put your heart into playing a part, finally get it feeling right, play it back and then hear something very very different. Haha.... But, seriously....that's a rough experience.
