Tempest / Hi, i bought a Tempest recently....
« Last post by Bahm on September 22, 2020, 01:29:35 AM »
... and I love it!
I always liked the concept and sound since release, but did read some not so good things about it.
Now when I heard it's discontinued, I had to get one. Bought it used and it's a really really nice machine! There is not a lot to loose I thought.
Should have bought it earlier!
But I also think without the 8 bars length I would have been a bit disappointed.
I own a mek too, since I don't know when the pot edition was released and it's one of my favorite synths!
The only small thing I miss is the osc as mod source. But that's not a real big thing for me. A machine without limitations would be boring!
It can do crazy things for sure. Love the direct pattern change.
As I said I love it and I think I will never sell it again after owning it now a few weeks.

Made a video on the first day owning it.
For me it was mostly easy to understand, I read some poeple think it's too complicated. Ever owned a mfb? :)

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Layer A settings affected when I select a new preset for layer B ???
« Last post by Twisty on September 22, 2020, 12:17:09 AM »
To be clear; you are in multi mode and you select a patch in layer B it influences layer A?
Or are you assuming that you can in either split or stack select patches for layers independently?

That's right ! I have them independent layers and when I change the preset of layer B it affects the settings (effects) of layer A.
Pro 2 / Re: Sequencer: To erase an existing sequence?
« Last post by AJ317 on September 21, 2020, 09:05:52 PM »
The question remains.

How do you erase a sequence. The manual states:
1. Press & hold TRACK SELECT
2. Turn soft knob 1
3. Press soft key 4 to execute the CLEAR TRACK command
4. Release the TRACK SELECT button

But just like the OP, when I hold TRACK SELECT and select Track 1, soft knob 4 is "Mute: On/Off" now, not CLEAR TRACK.

I don't want to enter my sequence on top of an existing sequence. I want to erase the existing sequence and start from a blank sequence.

Where is the clear track command? It's also shown in manual addendum 1.2, but in OS 1.4 it doesn't appear to be available.

Can anyone please advise?

Track Mute On/Off exists where Clear Track should. Is this feature just gone now, in lieu of Track Mutes instead?
OB-6 / Re: Arpeggiator/Sequencer midi clock out to trigger drum machine

This isn't exactly the solution you were asking for, but the s-trig out on the 707 (rimshot or tom...I forget) should either start the sequencer or "step" the sequencer depending on how your OB-6 is configured.

It's been awhile, but maybe try chan 9 with Roland products?

Sorry, it's been a long time since I read the 707's manual.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: New free OpenSource Sysex Librarian - The KnobKraft Orm (with download)
« Last post by kris on September 21, 2020, 01:20:22 PM »
Hi, I'm new on here and not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post this question but, I just wondered if anyone could give me some advise. I've created some new patches on the User banks of my Prophet Rev2 and I wanted to know is there a way I can transfer/save the patches onto my computer just in case there's a problem and they are lost on the actual synth.
Any help will be appreciated! Thanks
Hi Robrev2,

the Orm will do that for you!

What I do is basically - import all banks once into the Orm (or just load the Sequential provided factory programs syx file into the Orm, so it knows all factory presets). After that, whenever you use the "Import Patches from Synth" button, the Orm will download a bank (I only use Bank U1) *and only create new entries for new patches*, because it fingerprints patches and will not re-report known ones, so you will not end up with duplicates. Well, you will end up with duplicates but they might differ very little (use the patch compare function to find out how).

I got so used to this I do not even bother where I store the patches in the synth, after a session I will just import Bank U1 and will see how many patches I have created. I also rename them only in the computer, they will all be called Basic Program A, and not doing the scroll-to-the-letter-with-encoder 80s type of data entry.

You will also get each bank import as a filter entry in the dropdown, so the patches will be permanently grouped by the session in which they were imported, which could also be useful to find them again (the session is timestamped so if you vaguely remember the date, you'll be fine).

Yep, its looking like there was a quick fix for the midi data loop. I went to the macros tab and unchecked the box labeled "forward midi to synth." I'm not sure if this will hinder me from something else later but at least my arp works properly now.
Ups, yes, that seems to be a bit undocumented by me - I will make this default off, because it really is meant to be used with the modules and not with the keybed version, and when you want to play multiple modules from the same masterkeyboard.
OB-6 / Re: how to switch programs on midi
« Last post by RobustAmerican on September 21, 2020, 12:04:52 PM »
You could try recording the bank/patch change from the synth interface and then checking/inspecting the data that gets sent from the synth in a list editor or something similar. (Most sequencers/recorders should have this functionality) That should give you all the info you need to backward engineer perfect program changes.

The one that I had with a similar problem had a serial number that ended in "48".

If your serial number ends in "48" I hope they fixed it before they sent it out :)
