Prophet VS v1.2 firmware download

Postby Berylline » Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:35 pm

I was supposed to upload this 2 years ago, but life shenanigans happened. :?
Anyway, here are the download links for the ZIP containing all the firmware files:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Wvt_tf ... sp=sharing
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0a932pbafwqvn ... s.zip?dl=0

Please read "readme.txt" and check the checksums with "checksums.txt" before you do anything.

Mods, please tell me if I did anything wrong...

They've been up on http://dbwbp.com/index.php/9-misc/37-synth-eprom-dumps for quite a while now, but your effort is appreciated none-the-less.

Just beware that although Version 1.2 gives you things like data value INC/DEC buttons it loses the free-wheeling LFOs which are now synchronised to key-on events.

Since the VS is all about modulation this has put me off undertaking this upgrade in the past.

I would like to have the option to downgrade to OS 1.0, if possible (now that's sounding fairly stupid, isn't it).

Interesting - this is what I've deliberately retained in my VS.

I bought it that way, after it had been overhauled thoroughly by Wine Country -- I only learned about the LFO thing later on.

I would have found it fairly useful to have the option to toggle between the different firmware revisions.

It would probably be possible to merge v1.0 and v1.2 to get the best of both worlds. Probably wouldn't take that long to cook up if someone had access to both versions.

It would be great to have the option of free running lfos or lfos synched to key on.

My VS came with the latest OS & its all I know & what Im used to & Im fine with the lfos being syncd to key press as I find that useful, but it would be really nice to have the choice.

In any case thanks to the o.p. for taking the time & effort .

If anyone wants to downgrade to v1.0 or v1.1 to see what the fuss is about:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1gTqbU ... AqlsGny5Mw

Sequential Circuits (SCI) Prophet VS v1.0, v1.1, and v1.2 (final) EPROM firmware--both chips, high and low--are all included.

I don't have a Prophet VS to test any firmware hacks, so I can't volunteer for such a project, but maybe that one oyster in a sea of 7 billion people will do it.
