  • LFO to Aux controller now has Min, Max and Reset values
  • Key-on can reset LFO
  • All parameters are controllable in real-time by SysEx
  • Aux1 output can output clock at 1 to 12, 24, or 48 clocks per quarter note
  • Din sync and clock can be used at the same time as CV and Gate outputs
  • Can control all 5 connections of a TB-303 5 Socket upgrade at the same time
  • Display now uses all three digits to display numbers
  • Box now an attractive cobalt blue colour

Note 1 - A power supply (wall wart) is now included with this product . Four types are available, UK / EU / USA / Australian. We will automatically supply the correct type for your country.

Note 2 - whereas Aux1 is continuously variable and can be controlled from a wide variety of sources, Auxes 2 & 3 can output only 0 or 5 volts (split at data value 64) and can only be controlled by continuous controllers (CCs). When Aux 2/3 mode is selected, the thru socket pins 1 and 3 become auxes 2 & 3. You will need a 5 pin Din to 2 jacks cable to make use of Auxes 2 & 3. This mode was introduced mainly for the Accent and Slide inputs of our 5 Socket upgrade for the TB-303, allowing the Pro-SOLO mkII to control all 5 inputs at the same time.
