Have you got the clock source set to External by any chance ?

Here's how to check :

1. Press the -> key next to the Write key.
2. Press the PE Define/Global key (far right).
3. Press the Page Right Key (or Page Left Key) until the display shows "GLB-8" in the top left
4. Check that value for CLK is INTERNAL. Also check that LOCAL is ON (if you want to play the Prophecy via it's keyboard).

Nice one, your welcome. Actually, a Korg Prophecy is one of the synths that you really do need a manual for & the Parameter Guide.

Have fun :)

Not as good as my $150 prophecy! I think the cheapish plastic look to it makes some sellers think it's a toy (and the fact that it can only play one note - must be broken!).

It's a fun synth - definitely download the parameter guide (it's the manual that the manual should be).
