Sequential Prophet X / Re: Strange Preset Bank Loading Behavior
« Last post by alienaircraftmusic on November 30, 2020, 07:37:13 AM »
Yes, this happened to me.  Loaded into all four User banks.  And SYSEX took about 8 hours to transfer, is that normal?

Sequential Prophet X / Strange Preset Bank Loading Behavior
« Last post by Shaw on November 30, 2020, 06:56:07 AM »
Has anyone ever seen a preset bank load into ALL 4 user preset bank locations instead of just the intended target Preset Bank ?


I don't even see how that could happen, but just checking if others have experienced this.

Glad I asked. That little glitch was what I came to not care for in template 121. (I started using 120 more.) I was using it in a monophonic patch and didn’t like what it was doing when it cycled to the glitch. I would probably like it better for polyphonic patches. I also am happy to know how to undo it, especially if I want to use the third envelope.

Another interesting possibility (transform it into a 4 operator FM synth):

That’s pretty cool.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: help needed programming gated sequencer

Well, yes each track is a modulator, or modluation source, that can modulate most of the available synth parameters. Just as an LFO can modulate things. Each sequencer track can modulate whatever parameter you choose as its destination. You can of course modulate more than just one parameter, if you assign the sequencer as a source in one of the modulation slots.

For example, if you assign a sequencer to modulate pitch of both oscillators, and set step1 to 0, step2 to 24, and step3 to reset (which makes the sequencer start over from step1 each time it reaches step3, like a loop point) then when pressing a key, for example C1, then the sequencer will play a C1 at step1, followed by a C2 (one octave up) at step2. Then it will reset and repeat those steps as long as you hold down the key, driven by the BPM tempo, in most of the sequencer modes. In this case it would act as a squarewave LFO, jumping between the two steps back and forth. But with ”Key Step” mode, the sequencer only advances a step each time you press a key, so with that mode and above example, the pitch would alternate between a C1 and a C2 each time you press C1.

You can route the sequencers to the same destinations that are available for the LFOs, so there are lots of possibilities. By setting different reset points for each sequencer, you can make polyrhythms for example.

Each sequencer step can have a value between 0-125, then there is a ”rest” step for sequencers 1 an 3, which is like a ”mute” function for steps (used to rest steps in rhythmic sequences), and then there’s ”reset”, which specifies the previous step as the last before repeating. So if I only want to use 12 steps, I set step 13 to reset.

I find it hard to explain, so just ask again if anything is unclear.

Does this only work on the keyboard 6? Looking a bit silly slapping my desktop P6 with no result

Prophet Rev2 / Re: help needed programming gated sequencer

I don't want to use any external apps because I don't know if these apps will be accessible for me. any sequence that I want to program in the gated sequencer will be simple with only a couple steps. I just need to know what I'm doing. so am I right in understanding that each track in the gated sequencer is a different parameter that can be modulated?

Prophet-5/Prophet-10 / Re: Anyone using the Soundtower Librarian

So, in dumb lay-man, non Midi speak, are you saying that the two sysex files contain the same program parameters, and the only bytes that are different are not related to the formation of the sound.

Possibly. I didn't look at every byte. The two byte difference is the patch number included in one and not the other. The Program Edit Buffer Data Dumps never include the patch number. That's likely the key difference in your example.

If you have SysEx files to compare, I can see what the underlying differences may be.

Prophet-5/Prophet-10 / Re: Anyone using the Soundtower Librarian
« Last post by Shaw on November 29, 2020, 06:10:52 PM »
Shaw and I have corresponded via email over this- from what I see is the non soundtower file has 2 additional bytes of data after the sequence F0 01 32 at the beginning of the file. In what I assume is the P5 export there is 2 bytes of 02 02, and then the rest of the file appears the same at a quick glance(did not check every value, but it looks like there is just a 2 byte offset due to the 02 02) I thought the sysex table was in the manual but dont see it. Do you know where I could find it to take a look? Hoping the 2 bytes are not relevant to the sound, but concerned that it may be the case especially considering the bugs in 3 way button handling...

The Prophet-5 dump is a Program Data Dump (byte 4, value 02). The following two bytes (02 02) indicate the patch number. Byte 4 in the SoundTower dump is 03 indicating a Program Edit Buffer Dump, which doesn't include patch numbers, hence the 2-byte difference. I responded to Shaw's post with his images and also included mention that the MIDI Implementation Chart is in the Prophet-5/10 support section.

So, in dumb lay-man, non Midi speak, are you saying that the two sysex files contain the same program parameters, and the only bytes that are different are not related to the formation of the sound.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: help needed programming gated sequencer

I assume you know how a sequencer works, in general. Most often they're used to control pitch, but in many cases, such as this, they can be used to control lots of other parameters as well. Think of each sequencer as a sample-and-hold LFO with (up to) 16 definable steps. There are 4 sequencers on the Rev2, which can be useful... However, I personally find it cumbersome to program the sequencers on the Rev2 by itself, with just one knob and menu-diving through 4x16 steps (or 8x16 for stacked/split mode) to program them. It is easy to lose track when programming this way.

So it is really beneficial to have an editor for this. There are 2 good ones for PC, and a less good one for iPad, though that app is only $5, and works alright for programming the sequencers.
Unfortunately this means having to connect to a computer or iPad, with the added extra hassle...

Probably my biggest lament (design-wise) compared to the original Prophet '08, which had 16 knobs that could be used for programming those sequencers. The Rev2, on the other hand, begs for an external editor to edit those sequencers...
