Prophet 10 rev4 Amplifier Release

Hi y'all, just got a prophet 10. So happy with it sitting above my Rhodes.
Hoping y'all could help with a sanity check-
Does the Amplifier Release knob only start to kick in noticeably around the 5 mark (center)?

I'm coming from software synths so please excuse my ignorance, I'm all ears on any info or resources.

Congrats on your new P-10 and I hope that the "Rhodes" is a vintage Mark I , II or III  :P
About the knobs ...  Just tweak around, listen and find out, thatīs the advantage of hardware
synths compared to software   :o

Cheers !

I can hear a small amount of release coming in at around the 3 mark (gotta listen carefully on short burst sounds though).  But yeah, the center mark is where a "normal" amount of release starts to be felt.  For fun I compared it to the Arturia and U-he Prophet emulations, and they all three similar in where the release is heard.  Interestingly though the Arturia max release time was about 10 seconds, the P10 about 30 seconds, and Repro 5 was just under a full minute.
