where is the documentation of the unlabeled, un-manualed globals page 3?
i can't find any update history, and it's not in the manual v1.3

(this is a "global" problem across many synth companies. even the companies that do have easy to find documentation seldom integrate the new features into the manual, resorting to lists of features for each new firmware update)

Prophet5 Main 1.5.0:

Main 1.5.0
Feature: New 3rd row of Globals, accessed by holding BANK SELECT and pressing GLOBALS. When the 3rd row of Globals is selected, both Globals LEDs are lit.
-  3rd row slot #1: turns 5 voice limit mode on/off (affects Prophet 10 only)
-  3rd row slot #2: selects between P5 style or Round Robin voice allocation modes
Feature: New Poly Unison mode. Hold UNISON and select “PU2” using the Inc/Dec buttons. Each note is allocated two voices.

and wouldn't it be cool if there were a single page that listed all the button combinations which aren't explicit on the front panel?

You wrote: "where is the documentation of the unlabeled, un-manualed globals page 3?

The addendum says: "OS 2.0 also includes new voice management commands that you can access through an additional “3rd row” of Global commands. The addendum covers these new features."
... and then explains them.

I'm not sure where the disconnect is?  Which setting are you referring to?

There's another post here on the forum where someone made just that. The link is:

I don't know who made this cheatsheet, but credits go to this anonymous person here on the forum  ;)
He might even add the new 2.0 features...

There are some other settings that would be useful to have added to that document such as the combinations for viewing the current firmware, writing the user banks to the factory bank slots, etc.
