New Sequential OB-6 & Prophet-6 BETA OS Updates Add MPE Supoort & Vintage Mode Operation



It looks like the OB-6 and Prophet-6 will be getting MPE support and the Prophet-5's adjustable vintage knob functionality.

via the OB-6 Sequential forum:

Main OS 1.6.4
Feature: MPE support
Feature: Slop now supports normal slop or Vintage operation

This OS is compatible with both the keyboard and desktop module; it will display as "1.6.4" after the update.

And via the Prophet-6 Sequential forum:

Main OS 1.6.3
Feature: MPE support
Feature: Slop selectable between normal slop and Vintage operation

This OS is compatible with both the keyboard and desktop module; it will display as "1.6.3" after the update.

If you recall, the Prophet-5 introduced a new Vintage Knob described as follows:

"Vintage Sound, Vintage Knob
In addition to sourcing genuine Prophet-5 hardware components, we did extensive research into exactly what made the original sound the way it did — warm, organic, and alive. We found that much of this desirable character was due to slight fluctuations and differences in the response times and frequencies of the individual VCOs, filters, envelopes, and amplifiers from voice to voice.

To give the same mojo to the new Prophet-5, we created the Vintage knob. Use it to dial in as much old-school randomness as you’d like. Go from a very stable '4' — as in Prophet-5 Rev4, which is how we refer to the new version in house — all the way to “1,” as in Prophet-5 Rev1, the rarest and most temperamental of all Prophet-5s."

And the OB-6's Detune knob offered the following:

"The oscillators on the OB-6 are extremely stable. To emulate the random pitch drift and oscillator instability of vintage instruments, use the DETUNE parameter (next to the UNISON button) to dial in as little or as much drift as you like."

The BETA OSes add a new "Vintage operation".

Update: I have confirmation from Sequential that this is indeed the same as the vintage knob functionality introduced in the new Prophet-5 and Prophet-10.
