My question is, was there anything that ver. 2.0 has that 1.2 doesn't? What makes ver. 2.0 the most sought after pcm70? Or is this just name recognition, like Neve 1073's and 1066's?
Don't make this a long-term memory test ;-)
The only difference was sysex was added. No sounds were changed.
V3 had a new set of presets. It was recommended to copy the old (V1.2 or 2) into the registers before installing 3 and to save the chip in case you lost the registers.
