Re: Individual patches in sysex format

This is more of a question for DSI Support, as this is beta. I would suggest you wait until the new shipping version of code is released.

I have not extensively used this feature-

Re: Individual patches in sysex format

With the 1.1.9.8 code, you can do this (keep in mind to backup as this is beta code). When you do a sysex dump, there are options for Program, Tens, Bank, and all. Just select Program and it will save that single program via sysex. Keep in mind, when it is loaded into another machine, it will occupy...

Re: P6 "Sound Editor", Thoughts?

I like you you put "Sound Editor" in quotes!

I downloaded the trial a while back and it was buggy and unpredictable, hardly worked. I would never pay $70 for it-

Re: Cool Feature in 1.1.9.8

It was confirmed by DSI Support that the programs load into the slots from which they came, which is fantastic. This means you can load 1, 10. or 100 sounds exactly where you need them, save them off, and import them back into the same locations.

Thanks!

Cool Feature in 1.1.9.8

I just saved my programs and discovered that apparently now you can do a sysex dump of a single program, tens, a bank, as well as user or all! This is great. Now, If there was only a way to load them this way, that would be great. I will not buy the SoundTower editor, as it really has too many issue...

Re: Oscillator Calibration Issue

The new beta OS seems to have solved this problem. I have done a couple of calibrations and they both concluded normally-

Oscillator Calibration Issue

This has happened to me on both the original OS and on 1.1. At the end of the calibration, the process never completes, just gets in an endless loop L1-L2-L3-L4-L5-L6 and repeats over and over again. I have to power down the unit (I know the manual says not to do this) and when I turn it back on, it...

Try this one. I had the same problem for volume with the Yamaha FC-7. The Moog seems completely compatible with the P-6:

Re: Prophet Piano

Hi, James-

The Prophet 6 is not really designed to produce a realistic piano sound. Can you be more specific as what you need to accomplish?

You can probably make some piano-like sounds, useful in certain contexts, but nothing that would convince anyone that you were playing a real piano.

Re: Can mod wheel amount be changed?

OK, thanks.

I don't have another DSI machine to compare it to, so I am sure someone will chime in. As you said, the feature is probably not there.

Have you emailed support directly to ask the question? They are very responsive-

Re: Can mod wheel amount be changed?

Please explain what you are trying to accomplish.

The amount of effect the mod wheel has is based on other parameters that receive its input. There is no set "amount", it is a continuous controller.

Re: REC Button

Agreed, it would be great to just be able to change the key of the sequence by just hitting a key on the keyoard. It is impractical in live performance to hold the record button down, especially when you are playing with the other hand-

Re: Prophet 6 vs. Prophet 08

There is a huge thread on Gearslutz that addresses this. The concensus is that the two synths sound very different:
