Prophet '08 issues, questions

Wondering if someone out there could help
Picked up a PE keyboard yesterday secondhand.

Everything seems to be fine with the pots, encoders
But there is one issue that does not seem to be encoder related
When setting the LFO,s the controls sporadically lock up
Like the processor is struggling, it takes a while and then the
Encoders work again, anyone have this issue? Any remedies?

Also is there any way to add predelay to the LFO,s
Ie Modulation does not kick in immediately.

So far I,m digging it but the LFO lockup issue is, well

I don't have a Prophet08, so I don't know the answer to the first issue.

If there's no LFO delay parameter, you could try to modulate LFO depth with the 3rd envelope, it has a delay parameter or you could use a slow attack on the envelope to fade in the LFO.

From the DSI page :

You could try a reset of the global parameters : hold Global button + LFO3, this resets the factory defaults.

Or try calibration : Global + LFO2.

Well tried yor suggestions to no avail, seems to me like this is a O.S. Bug

Thanks for the LFO tip, did the trick, shame the LFO,s don,t have individual
Delay parameters.

Guess an email to DSI is next.
