Update on my Prophet X repair. The motherboard and power supply both arrived from Sequential. I swapped the power supply....still the same issue. Going to try the motherboard next and swap the ram to the new board. Fingers crossed. If it doesn't work. I'll see what else can be done. I unfortunately can't afford to ship it to Sequential so it sadly might end up as E-Waste. :( I already lost money on soundtrack work because of this.

Well I guess some higher power said "NO" after I posted that. The PX just sputtered and turned back on. Fully loaded with user samples and patches.

Great news!

Btw if you are a professional at this point, I would 100% recommend getting a back up unit if you can. If the PX is a single point of failure I would definitely consider this if I were you, if it is possible.

Unfortunately I donít have the funds for anything right now. Hence why I couldnít afford the shipping cost of the PX to Sequential.

Actually I think if I were to get a ďbackupĒ it likely would be a workstation (Kurzweil, Akai, Korg etc) I know the whole point of the PX for me was because I had a really difficult time enjoying the workflow of those things (more time programming less time doing music.) but I canít be stranded like this again.

Perhaps the Nord Wave 2?

Obviously the PX is my baby. My favorite synth of all time but I canít put all my eggs into one basket when I have deadlines.

The other day I tried to start PXL, it wouldn't start. I didn't play a single note, but I noticed that the power supply was getting so hot. I also noticed a pattern: I changed the power supply 2 times, after each replacement, the PX worked for about one month of active use. Then the freezes started. In both cases. Why is that? Isn't the power supply designed to last a long time? I donít even understand how itís designed, a instrument with such potential but with such a specific bug!

At that point, I would drop my own 3rd party PSU in.

Just happened to me after all these years I've had it. It's just stuck on the loading screen. It doesn't say "Can't reach audio processor" it's just stuck. I've tried the F1 plnk keyboard trick and nothing is working.

The very same weekend I sell my Prophet 6 my Prophet X breaks.
Oh no, that's terrible. Could it be the same battery issue as before?
