If you connect your Super 6 to a computer, you can easily access and organise patches, sequences and alternative waveforms which are stored on the instrument. This is useful for swapping and backing up patches, sequences and waveforms as well as freeing up the Super 6’s internal memory. No specific software or web app is required for these tasks.
Follow the steps below to access the SUPER6 drive:
- Turn off the Super 6.
- Connect the Super 6 to your computer using the included USB cable.
- Hold the PATCH button and power cycle the synth to unlock the SUPER6 disk drive. The LEDs of the 16 patch and bank select buttons will indicate the progress of the loading process.
- Once the LEDs indicate that the Super 6 is in patch mode, release the PATCH button.
The Super 6 will appear on your computer’s desktop as an external drive named SUPER6 and can be accessed just like any flash drive.
SUPER6 contains four folders: ‘patch_banks’, ‘sequences’, ‘waveforms’ and ‘alt_waveforms’. The folder ‘patch_banks’ can contain up to 16 subfolders: 1 for each bank. Within each of the bank folders in ‘patch_banks’, you will find up to 8 patches.
Since sequences and waveforms are not organised in banks, the sequences and both waveform folders do not contain any subfolders. You will find up to 16 sequences in the sequences folder and 16 alternative DDS 1 waveforms in the folders ‘waveforms’ and ‘alt_waveforms’.
