    Boo! I want a YouTube video not just a still picture! Again, BOO!
    [/faux lambasting]

    (good effort! would be interested in this myself!)

  2. ^^^There is a free trial (.d64) disk image on the creators website. I would imagine there are ways to copy this file into the C64 directory and run it from the command prompt

    Same with iDos using a CBM64 emulator

  3. lol I'll get a video up. Still trying to figure it out.
    I can trigger the sounds with the keyboard
    I can navigate around the GUI and adjust all the parameters with the joystick
    The only thing I haven't figure out how to program the sequencer.
    I was reading through parts of the manual posted on the net but didnt get a full understanding.

    To get it working on your iDevice you need A .d64 file of Prophet 64, and a file manager like iPhone explorer or iFile.

    Google search how to add .d64 files into the C64 app.

  4. Here are a list of the Functions.

    f1= pitch mode (edit mode)
    f3=time mode
    f7=function (normal mode)

    <- = pattern clear
    2=c#
    3=d#
    5=f#
    6=g#
    7=b# (even though on the real tb303 it's a#)
    +=down
    -=up
    british pound= pattern A
    clr home=pattern B
    ctrl=menu
    q=c
    w=d
    e=e
    r=f
    t=g
    y=a
    u=b
    i=c
    @=blank screen on play
    runstop=run/stop
    a=mix in
    s=sawtooth wave
    d=square wave
    f=tuning
    g=cuttoff frequency
    h=resonance
    j=envelope modulation
    k=decay
    l=accent
    return=tap
    z=tempo
    x=pattern select
    c=shuffle
    v=sqr# (i think it's a square wave strength selection. not sure)
    /=volume
    space bar=blank screen

  5. I learned how to program it! Somewhat. lol Still learning and RTFM, but I managed to program a pattern and run it! Excellent audio quality too.
    The only downfall is that there is no ctrl key to load and save. I think this can be fixed with a slight mod to C64.
    But overall the Prophet 64 is quite useable as of right now and worth the effort..
    You can adjust all the parameters to get the sound you like.

    Vid Tomorrow!

  6. The ctrl key is the only key missing. I found a mod to add the ctrl key. I'll post a vid first tho, then mod the keyboard.

    The ctrl key allows you to load, save and change the Tempo.

    So everything is good but the three I mentioned above.

    You can even manipulate the sounds while the sequencer / pattern is running. Adjusting A,D,S,R, Fil etc. In real time.

    No pops clicks or hiccups in audio.
