Definitely distorted, could be a number of things though.

Have you tried initializing a patch and seeing if the basic waves are doing the same thing?

That example is 4 sawtooths with no distortion.

Any basic patch I have made, with all four oscillators above 40, and master volume value above 60 or so distort. No drive, distortion, noise, fm, am. Volume knob low or high, same results.

Its weird though. Not everything distorts all the time.

The Evolver is like that, too. You have to try and make the oscillator levels equal about 100-120 or it will clip.

It's very possible it is user error. That was my first thought.

Yesterday, I took a look around all the factory banks with the handy show button, and couldn't find any patterns to the ones that distort and the ones that didn't.

Have you checked to see if there's a calibration mode?

There is calibrate sliders, calibrate wheels, and auto tune filters.

You think I should try any?

I wouldn't think any of those would help - couldn't hurt though I guess.

It could very well just be a bugged OS or something like that. I'd suggest sending Pym a PM here as well, he's generally pretty active, and often happy to help troubleshoot problems.

What type of input you running it into?
Tried with headphones?

Yeah. Sounds exactly the same as the clip with headphones plugged in the prophet.

Feedback would cause it as well, possibly delay at the right settings. Also check mod paths to make sure nothing is targetting any of those params. You can quickly call up a basic preset by holding 'Latch' on slider 1 and then hitting 'Hold' in the arp section, that may help troubleshooting.

I'd zero out your mod wheel as well as that can be jumpy in certain positions. Also you may want to zero out all your pots (turn them to the far left) before turning the Prophet on and see if that helps. Could be a jumpy pot that is causing a param shift, easy to repair once we know what it is.

There are plenty of possibilities here. Make sure you contact support and send an audio clip to help

I try those things out. Sound samples have been sent.

Thanks Chris!

Good on you Chris for looking into this .
Its a pity the NOOB that bought a P12 and sent it back after 5 mins didn't wait till you offered some help to see if the problem could be resolved.
More than likely user error on his part.
Look forward to playing one and hopefully owning one soon.
Cheers

Just to clarify with some owners on this favorite demo of mine, with synthmania's demo song - are some of the sounds from 6:33 with titles coming up modified presets, or are they factory ones ? :

I don't mean to sound cynical but at this point I'd need actual evidence that Messian isn't just trolling...photos actually. But since the instrument has already been sent back I don't expect that will ever happen.

For those wondering why some of us are being harsh towards the guy you should probably read a few of his past threads. This has all happened before. Every synth he has ever claimed to own has had almost identical problems. It's uncanny actually...

You think he never owned one in the first place?

You think he was ever even here? All his posts are gone from this thread.



Can't say as I miss them. Anyway, back to real P12 discussion. Good news that there's more arpeggiator programmability on the way!

I've been using this internet thing since it was in Beta... I'm not gonna claim I've seen it all, but I've seen enough. However, the arch of Messian's story has been mildly entertaining. Anyway, now for something completely different:

Didn't investigate to much. But think it is just a factory preset. Sounds pretty similar and the sliders behave the same way as the video.

Wow- great demo. Love that. Now I REALLY want a P12. It reminds me of what I love about my P'08 and what it can do on top of that.

I like the fact that you can tweak the arps without having to retrigger a key (I can't do this on my '08).

Damn- know anyone who is handing out free money?! Too many amazing synths out this year...

Why is there so much pitch drifting in many of the patches? I'm just wondering if there's a global drift setting that is on a bit too strong?

I'm assuming its the "slop" setting that's been on most DSI synths.

OK, thanks. I don't own any DSI.

I could see it being useful for me, but at a subtler setting.

People complained that the slop feature on other DSI synths, saying that it was barely noticeable. I read somewhere that they cranked it up on the p12. When set to 5 on the Tempest I can hardly hear any difference. Sounds very obvious here, I actually like it a lot on those long, drawn out pad sounds.
