What's new or different about the MkII?

- Now runs from standard 9 volt power supply - centre positive
- MIDI THRU socket can be switched to become DIN SYNC or AUX 2 & 3
- Portamento - new fixed time mode as well as existing fixed rate
- Auto Portamento mode selectable (where legato playing turns on Portamento)
- LFO sync point can be selected
- LFO to CV controller now has Min, Max and Reset values
- 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 color

Note - 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.
