on the prophet 600...

Post by wrekkstylz » Fri Aug 21, 2009 2:32 pm

is there any real difference between 1/2 and Off on the Keyboard switch?

also, on mine, pulse width for both oscillators only seems to have a range from about 1-8, is that normal? I figured it must be just the way it works because it does it on both.

That's the keyboard tracking switch, and yes there should be a difference between the Off, 1/2, and Full settings. The extent to which it is audible will, of course, vary by how the rest of your patch is set up (specifically, where the filter cut-off is set to begin with).

The pulse wave will become inaudible with the Pulse Width knob set at either extreme. However these settings can become useful when using the pulse wave as a modulation source (Osc B only, via the Poly-Mod section) or modulation destination (LFO-Mod to PW A-B, with Pulse Width knob set to 0 will give you an on-off, hard tremolo sound.)
