Looking for testers for the KnobKraft Orm free sysex librarian for the Prophet 5

kris

Hi friends,

I spent the evening implementing the Prophet 5 Rev4 into the KnobKraft Orm sysex librarian, which is free and opensource. As I don't have a Prophet 5 (yet), I am looking for willing individuals to give my implementation a go and see if it works with the actual device.

Instructions: Install the Orm per instructions from the website: https://github.com/christofmuc/KnobKraft-orm

Download the attached adaption file and unzip it (!) in some directory. Launch the Orm and select the setup page, find the button which says "Set user adaption dir" (at the bottom) and point it to that directory. Relaunch the Orm, and in the Setup list you should find the Prophet 5 listed.

The software allows you to load sysex files from disk (e.g. the Factory patches), and send them into the edit buffer of the synth, but also to retrieve the edit buffer or full banks from the synth to store your own patches on the computer.

If this works, I'll make it a part of all future releases!

The device ID you put for the Prophet 10 will be wrong. The ID listed in the manual is actually for the Pro 3. Already reported.

fyi.

Awesome, thank you! I will attach a corrected version to this answer (somehow can't modify my original post above)

I would prefer to get a already ready to use built version. I am on macOS and I got a Prophet-10 Rev4 here.
The built version 1.7.5 is without the Prophets Rev4.

Ok, I understand! Give me a week or so to make a new build, I'll let you know here when I'm done!

Can't get it working. Error : Warning - couldn't find a Python 3.7 installation. Please install using 'brew install python3'. Turning off all adaptions.

So I´ll wait for the compiled version ::)
