Ahh the Pro One. This is the perfect first analog synth. Ive encountered many people who want suggestions for a nice first analog and i always suggest this. Why? Well first of all its real easy to use... all the knobs are there and it has the familiar symth structure. Second is that it does everything well- syncable osc, detunable osc, multiple waveforms, lots of modulation, and third is that the sound is amazing! It does all the analog sounds and does each one atleast average. The only thing i can think of that i havent been able to tweek out of this thing is a good 303 bass- the filters just arent that squelchy. Try assigning all the modulation to the wheel and play with the wheel youll be pleasantly surprised!

The Pro One makes great sound and has very flexible modulation possibilities... It is worth taking the time to experiment with it to get to know it's specific sound characteristics... I use the synth in almost every track we produce. Once you own one, never give it away again!

I am syncing the thing to MIDI using a Doepfer MCV8. works fine... except: the sync signal produces an audible click before the Envelopes start. and the end of the CV also produces some click. Has anyone else found this annoying? how did you get around it?

The fat sync lead is like no other. the modulation possibilities are endless. overall this is the lightest synth from this era which is strange cause at first glance it looks heavy. the keyboard is wierd. it's springy even though i have a later model (8000 something) overall i recommend that everyone buys a kenton pro-solo cv to MIDI converter for this synth. it just blows the woofers on my moniters!

One of the best mono's ever made. Not as warm as the Mini, Source, Promars, System 100, SH synths but has a really punchy edgy sound that I love. Early New Order, Yazoo, Skinny Puppy, etc is ripe with Pro-One. The keyboard is crap (buy a later serial number if you can). I have 2, one early one (#0275) and a later one (around #6000) and the keyboard is better on the later one. Full marks.

I bought my Pro-One back in 1982 or 83. At the time, it seemed kind of cool, but I had no real idea of what it could do. I tried using it with my band for key bass lines, but it sounded kind of thin and I gave up on it and put it away. Sometimes being a packrat has its benefits. A couple of years ago, I took it out, dusted it off and started using it again. Sadly, my sequencer/arpeggiator has died, but otherwise it rocks! Since I can't afford a TB303, this thing gives a VERY respectable imitation (most people would never know the difference!). I love the dual oscillators, the portamento and the mod routing. Great for techno/ambient/rave/acid...the list goes on and on. Call me lazy, but I STILL haven't tried the audio input for filtering drum or bass lines. Maybe tonight...anyway, has anybody out there had problems with their sequencer dying, and have they got any ideas how to fix it? Any help would be appreciated. P.L.U.R.
