Important Safety Instructions
Terminals marked with this symbol carry an electrical current of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock. Use only high-quality professional speaker cables with ¼” TS or twist-locking plugs pre-installed. All other installation or modifications should be performed only by qualified personnel.
This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage inside the enclosure – voltage that may be sufficient to constitute a risk of shock.
This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to important operating and maintenance instructions in the accompanying literature. Please read the manual.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove the top cover (or the rear section). No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified personnel.

PRO-1 Synthesizer Hook-up
Step 1: Hook-Up
PRO-1 Synthesizer Controls
Step 2: Controls
Oscillator A Section
- FREQUENCY – Adjusts the frequency of oscillator A.
- OCTAVE – Transposes the frequency of oscillator A over a four-octave range.
- SAWTOOTH SHAPE – Enables a full-level wave shape containing all harmonics.
- PULSE SHAPE – Turns on the pulse wave whose harmonic content depends on the pulse width control.
- PULSE WIDTH – Changes the harmonic content of the pulse wave by setting pulse wave shape from 0 to 100%.
- SYNC – Forces oscillator A to follow oscillator B in hard synchronization.
- OSCILLATOR A – Level control.
- OSCILLATOR B – Level control.
- NOISE/EXT – Control of white noise or external input.
When an external input is patched it bypasses the white noise circuit and is injected into the filter input.
- FREQUENCY – Adjusts the frequency of oscillator B.
- OCTAVE – Transposes the frequency of oscillator B over a four-octave range.
- SAWTOOTH SHAPE – Switch enables a full-level wave shape containing all harmonics.
- TRIANGLE SHAPE – Switch turns on a wave shape that is centered at the ground so as not to offset the modulation destination.
- PULSE SHAPE – Engages the pulse wave, which depends on the pulse width control to adjust harmonic content.
- PULSE WIDTH – Changes the harmonic content of the pulse wave by setting pulse wave shape from 0 to 100%.
- NORMAL/LO FREQ – Extends oscillator B range to the sub-audio frequency range (around 60 Hz and below).
- OFF/KYBD – A switch that allows keyboard control or independent use.
- RATE – Sets the rate of glide (portamento) between notes.
- AUTO/NORMAL – In the NORMAL position glide operates in a traditional way. In the AUTO position, the sound will glide only when a new key is pressed with the previous key still held. This enables one-handed pitch bending.
LFO, SEQUENCER, ARP, and MODE settings
- LFO FREQUENCY – Varies the Low-Frequency Oscillator range from approximately 0.1 to 30 Hz.
- SAWTOOTH SHAPE – Switch enables a full-level sawtooth wave shape.
- TRIANGLE SHAPE – The switch turns on a wave shape that is centered at the ground so as not to offset the modulation destination.
- PULSE SHAPE – Turns on the pulse wave.
- SEQ1/OFF/SEQ2 – 2 x 64-note sequencer (SEQ1 and SEQ2).
- RECORD/PLAY – Will either record or playback a sequence determined by the position of the SEQ1, SEQ2 OFF switch.
- ARP – The arpeggiator switch has 3 positions, UP (ascending only), UP/DOWN (ascending and descending) or OFF.
- POLY/MONO – Turns poly mode on when the switch is in the POLY position.
- NORMAL/RETRIG – Switch selects the envelope generator triggering mode. Normal means low-note priority with single triggering. When the switch is in the RETRIG position every new keypress will retrigger the gate, i.e. the last note played will be heard.
- REPEAT/EXT NORMAL – When switched on this function repeatedly gates the envelope generators at a rate controlled by the LFO/Clock FREQUENCY control. Engaging this switch also enables the top panel GATE/CLK IN input.
- DRONE – When activated this pushes the GATE on, holding the envelopes at their sustain level. DRONE has priority over REPEAT.
- GATE – This LED indicates the GATE operation in the various different keyboard modes and also shows external GATE inputs if present.
- CUTOFF – Adjusts the cutoff frequency of the VCF.
- RESONANCE – Adjusts the resonance of the filter. This emphasizes the frequencies around the cutoff point.
- ENV AMOUNT – Sets the amount of ADSR filter envelope CV controlling the filter cutoff frequency.
- KYBD AMOUNT – Sets the amount of KYBD CV controlling the filter cutoff frequency.
- ATTACK – Controls the attack time of the filter envelope.
- DECAY – Controls the decay time of the filter envelope.
- SUSTAIN – Controls the sustain level of the filter envelope.
- RELEASE – Controls the release time of the filter envelope.
Amplifier Section (applied to the VCA)
- ATTACK – Controls the attack time of the VCA envelope.
- DECAY – Controls the decay time of the VCA envelope.
- SUSTAIN – Controls the sustain level of the VCA envelope.
- RELEASE – Controls the release time of the VCA envelope.
- MIDI IN – Accepts incoming MIDI data from the selected MIDI channel.
- MASTER TUNE – Adjusts tuning.
- VOLUME – Controls the output level of the synthesizer.
- FIL ENV ROUTE – This assigns the modulation source to either the WHEEL or DIRECT path. DIRECT is mixed and applied directly to the selected target, WHEEL is mixed and then sent to the MOD wheel which then changes the depth of modulation.
- FIL ENV AMOUNT – Determines the amount of modulation mixed into the WHEEL or DIRECT path by the adjacent ROUTE switch.
- OSC B ROUTE – This assigns the modulation source to either the WHEEL or DIRECT path. DIRECT is mixed and applied directly to the selected target, WHEEL is mixed and then sent to the MOD wheel which then changes the depth of modulation.
- OSC B AMOUNT – Determines the amount of modulation mixed into the WHEEL or DIRECT path by the adjacent ROUTE switch.
- LFO ROUTE – This assigns the modulation source to either the WHEEL or DIRECT path. DIRECT is mixed and applied directly to the selected target, WHEEL is mixed and then sent to the MOD wheel which then changes the depth of modulation.
- LFO AMOUNT – Determines the amount of modulation mixed into the WHEEL or DIRECT paths by the adjacent ROUTE switches.
- OSC A FREQ – The switch selects either OFF, WHEEL or DIRECT for the modulation route.
- OSC A PW – The switch selects either OFF, WHEEL or DIRECT for the modulation route.
- OSC B FREQ – The switch selects either OFF, WHEEL or DIRECT for the modulation route.
- OSC B PW – The switch selects either OFF, WHEEL or DIRECT for the modulation route.
- FILTER – The switch selects either OFF, WHEEL or DIRECT for the modulation route.
- MOD WH CV – Input for mod wheel CV.
- OSC CV – OSC pitch CV.
- GATE/CLK – External GATE/CLOCK input.
- LFO CV – LFO rate CV.
- LFO OUT – LFO out CV.
- KB CV – 1V/octave for control of external equipment.
- GATE – Gate CV out of the arpeggiator or sequencer.
- EXT – Allows external audio input to be mixed and processed by the PRO-1’s filter and amplifier.
- MIXER – Output of mixer.
- CUTOFF CV – VCF cutoff frequency CV.
- RESONANCE CV – VCF resonance CV.
- FILTER ENV – Filter envelope output.
- AMP ENV – Amplifier envelope output.
- PHONES – Stereo 1/8″ headphone socket.
- AUDIO OUT – Mono 1/8″ Output of PRO-1.
- OUTPUT – Connect to a mixer or audio interface using a ¼” (6.35 mm) mono jack cable. Remember to turn your monitors/loudspeakers on last when turning on your
system and turn your monitors/loudspeakers off first when turning your system off.
- MIDI CHANNEL SELECTION – Move the four dip switches to select the incoming MIDI channel for the synthesizer.
- MIDI OUT/THRU – The 5-Pin MIDI DIN connector is used to pass through MIDI data received at the MIDI INPUT and USB input, as well as the sequencer or arpeggiator’s notes.
- USB PORT – Connects to a computer via standard USB cable. The PRO-1 will display in your DAW as a class-compliant USB MIDI device, capable of sending and receiving MIDI information.
- POWER SWITCH – Turns the synthesizer on and off. Make all audio connections before powering on.
- POWER INPUT – Connect the supplied power supply only.
