I've discovered a small issue with 1.2.26 when changing the filter between 2 and 4 pole while editing layers A & B together. If not in Split or Stack mode, the 4 Pole button will change from lit/unlit when pressed but the filter type will not change. If soft-knob 3 is used, the filter type will change correctly. If Split or Stack mode are active, everything works as expected.

Hey hey, I've discovered a similar issue: when editing layer A and B and changing the unison detune, nothing happens. The moment I disable the editing of layer A and B, the detune is there correctly. It's a problem though, if you can't see the values in the screen. :)

There is some talk of OS 1.3 in this thread ... viewtopic.php?f=27&t=7291

My guess is official release at NAMM.

I really hope they include MPE support, I bought a Linnstrument and it would be amazing to use it with the P12

Likely not going to happen fully since the P12 only supports 2 MIDI channels at a time.

(Linnstrument and P12 owner here as well)

Well yes, the idea would be that it would support more...

The Modal 002 and the soon to be available Futuresonus Parva.

Look for any synths (new or old) that let you set up a multi (or performance or whatever it can be called) where each part can be on a separate MIDI channel.

Also some others that I have: Proteus, Audity, VSynth, Kronos, Integra 7 and XV 5080

With some work, (note per channel and routing channel pairs (1,5 etc) to a single channel): DSI PEK, Nord G1&G2, Arturia origin, analog A4.

I think the DSI Tetra has the capability as well if you load the same patch to all four slots in combo mode.

Two more slightly left-field options -- PPG 2.3 and Nord Drum2.

Back in the day when guitar synths were popular, some synths (and rack units) supported MIDI Mono mode where each string used a different MIDI channel. An oldie like the Roland MKS-50 supported it (other Roland units from around that time also did as well). The idea was a monophonic channel for each string so you could articulate individual string bends, mutes, etc.

New owner of a P12 module here...just updated to 1.2.26 and was wondering if anyone has written up a step-by-step guide to implementing the 4 operator FM now possible? I read somewhere that 1.2.26 will allow FM a la the old Yamaha DX9 (which was limited to 4 operators vs the DX7) and I've searched through a few forums and read the release notes in the OS but can't find anything that clicks for me.

Thanks :wink:

...
The basics are easy:
1. press and oscillator button
2. press soft button 4
3. turn soft knob 4 to the right
4. repat 1-3 for all four oscillators
Now you have linear FM activated. You can use them in pairs or in one chain of four operators or you can use the mod matrix to connect them in any way, that you can think of.
N.B.: self-modulation is not possible, since it's real FM and not PM, like the old Yamahas used to have. If you're interested in the question, why it doesn't work, try looking on wikipedia for frequency modulation and the Yamaha dx7.
There is a thread here - can't remember which -, that holds some classic ratios for typical FM sounds like bells and brass. I believe the same thread holds information on translating ratios to intervals in semitones and cents.
Good luck and have fun! :)
