Question about layers
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:03:44 PM »
Reading the Prophet 12 operations manual...

Quote
"When a program is recalled from memory and neither Split A | B nor
Stack A + B are on, the sound that is loaded is the sound in layer A. To
play and edit layer B, turn on Edit Layer B."

and also

Quote
"When Stack A + B is on, both layers play for the full range of the
keyboard, with six voices allocated to each layer"

Does that mean that Layer B is not active (Edit Layer B is OFF,) Layer A has access to all 12 notes of polyphony?

Just to confirm - With Stack A+B on; 6 notes are available which sound both parts. With Split; 6 notes of A plus 6 note of B (each side of the split point) are available. With Split and Stack off the Edit button toggles between part A (unlit) and part B (lit) and 12 notes are available for either part.

You can also turn on multi mode, if you plan to trigger it via MIDI.
In this mode Layer A will act like a 6 voice synth on MIDI channel "n" and Layer B will be on "n+1".
Resulting in a 2x6voice poly synths, both on separate MIDI channels.
