Installing the E5 wire in this manner carries a high risk of damaging the CPU's 40-pin socket. This procuedure can create a self inflicted failure that will disable your Prophet 600 and require technical service to repair. Wine Country has seen this failure firsthand in GLIGLI updated Prophet 600s many times, and unfortunately the cost of repair always exceeds the cost of the upgrade. If you choose to follow STEP 5 in GLIGLI's instructions we urge CAUTION when installing the E5 wire. Our modified TEENSY ++ PC board eliminates this loose E5 wire and any possible DAMAGE to the 40-pin socket and your Prophet 600 during or after installation of this upgrade.

The TEENSY++ PC Board modification will significantly improve the MIDI features and sound of your Prophet 600. Our TEENSY Module plugs directly into the CPU socket, and it has NO LOOSE WIRE to plug separately into the socket.. a procedure which can damage your socket and your Prophet 600.
A drop-in ready TEENSY++ PC board modified & ready for use with a Prophet 600 is available from Wine Country for $139 plus shipping. Basic installation & operational instructions are also included. Installation requires absolutely NOSOLDERING, just plug in & go. Wine Country's proprietary TEENSY adapter eliminates that single jumper wire jammed into pin #30 of the 40-pin CPU socket, which prevents accidental damage to your Prophet 600's CPU socket pin#30 during and after the installation process.
When a TEENSY++ upgrade is installed all program data stored in memory is lost. You can easily install sounds back into memory with a SysEx file containing the Prophet 600 original factory program data.A SysEx file of factory programs is emailed to you when you purchase a TEENSY++ upgrade from Wine Country.

Prophet 600 TEENSY Testimonials:
Alexey from Switzerland emails..
"Hello, since seeing positive feedbacks on your site about this mod I would like to leave one too. The teensy was extremely simple to install and worked straight away tuning the whole thing to a degree it was never tuned to and the sound does feel “refreshed”.
Really happy with it, thanks! Alexey"
Carl from Blacksburg VA emails..
"I successfully installed the Teensy++ mod from Wine Country Sequential into my Prophet 600 in a little less than a half-hour's time. It was awesome to simply drop it in and restore my patches; no soldering, no fuss, etc. I really appreciated the prompt response and answers to my questions from Linda in inside sales and my overall experience with the Teensy++ mod from Wine Country Sequential was top notch! With the new mod, my Prophet 600 is like a whole new instrument... lots of new sonic territory to explore!
Erik from Norway emails..
"I just wanted to tell you that I installed the teensy board with success. I enjoy my "new" Prophet-600. I appreciate your help and fast answers. It was very nice with the extra 40 pins adapter. Thanks!
Best regards Erik"
