Questions about the Trigon-6 & Prophet 6

Dear Sequential-Community,

I want to buy my first analoge Polysynth and played both the Trigon and Prophet 6 at a store today.
Both of them are fantastic and I have trouble deciding which one to get. I noticed a difference with the Arpeggiators. The Prophet didn't seem to have a "beat sync" function. I read that this function was added with an update a while ago, so I'm assuming the model at the store wasn't fully updated. Can someone confirm if the Trigon and Prophet 6 have the same Arpeggiator with the newest updates? I also noticed more clicking, when using short attack times on the Prophet compared to the Trigon. Is that really the case? Are there generally sounds that the Trigon isn't able to produce that the Prophet can create other than the use of the Prophets high pass filter?

Best Wishes,

The P6 and Trigon 6 both have the exact same arpeggiator with the most recent firmware. The P6 has a very snappy filter so there is a noticeable click on certain envelope settings. This can be dialled in or  out to taste. As far as sounds the Trigon can produce that the P6 canít, the fact it has a third oscillator and selectable waveform combinations and FX mix as a modulation source and dedicated feedback and drive parameter.
