Newbie question

Post by ljb4204 » Mon Dec 14, 2015 8:08 pm

Hi all, I just purchased the Prophet 6 keyboard which will arrive later this week. I have one question, I see that this synth has usb midi, does the synth come with drivers that I need to install for my computer or something? I have a nord lead 4 that came with some drivers that I had to install, just wondering if this synth also is the same. Also the nord came with a sound library where I could upload / download patches / saves to my computer and vice versa. Does the prophet 6 have any kind of software like that? Hoping that it does.
Thanks in advance.

Wow, this forum is dead. Anyone have any idea out there? There has to be someone with this synth that knows

I didn't need to install drivers for USB MIDI on my Mac.

There is no included software. There is s free tool called SYSEX Librarian in Mac for capturing patch dumps. The firmware instructions in their site also mention the Windows equivalent.
