Prophet 5/10 memory question

Prophet 5/10 memory question

The old Prophet 5 had a 7 bit memory to store patches. That means each knob was quantized to 128 steps when stored. Has the new P5/10 seven bit memory as well or is it increased, as a part of the modernization of the backbone of the instrument, to recall a more precise stored patch?

According to the midi implementation data, I believe the new Prophet 5/10 also stores patches with knob values quantized to 128 steps.

The knobs (except the modwheel and the pitchbend) are all sending values 0-120 via MIDI CC or NRPN. So this is a faithful recreation of the original Prophet-5 in terms of parameter resolution.
keep on turning these knobs

Thank you for reply of my (just curious) question.
