Prophet~6 no midi out from USB

Post by Tonato17 » Sat Nov 14, 2015 9:04 pm

Hi Guys,

I am new to the forum, I got a prophet 6 some weeks ago and I'm loving it.

I am experiencing an issue with the USB midim hopefully it is related to configuration:

Whenever I connect the midi via the midi ports, the prophet 6 can receive midi information from my DAW (Cubase 8 Pro) and it reproduces the sound. (In Global settings midi out is set to midi ports)

BUT when I connect the prophet 6 via USB (changing the global settings to midi out- USB) I can input notes to my daw from the prophet, but the prophet won't reproduce the notes from the daw. the midi out doesn't seem to work via USB.

Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

I just spent some hours trying to figure this out and looking for info online but couldn't find any solution

Many thanks in advance!

Toni

My current version is 1.1.0, I thought that was the latest one.

When I go to that link it says Prophet 6 BETA OS 1.1.9.8 . I'm a bit confused if that one is the latest one, as when I click on the link it takes me to the DSI page where says that 1.1.0 is the current latest version.

The beta version OS 1.1.9.8 is only available from the official Dave Smith forum: http://forum.davesmithinstruments.com/

But, to see the download link you also need to be registered there. Once registered you will see the download link there: http://forum.davesmithinstruments.com/i ... ,97.0.html, right on the first post

Thanks LaKeys.

I registered yesterday and saw the attachment. Somehow I felt a bit funny about installing that version, as I wondered why it is not available officialy. I might wait until it is released officially. I just wanted to know if it is something I am doing wrong or something wrong with my particular Prophet 6 or related to something else.

I connected it via midi and it works well like this.

Is there any other member that has IOS 1.1.0 experimenting the same issue?

Thanks!
