So on my PC2R, I'm able to take a single drum sound and spread it over several keys so I could play a bass progression with an identical drum hit on each note - I think the setting was "keymap = constant"- Can the SP-6 do this?

Thanks!

In the IOS editor there is a setting within the Multi editing mode for notemap = constant. Maybe that does it. You can download the editor and use it without an SP6 attached just to check it out.

Ok - I found that Coker - thanks. Also - I got some help on how to do it - after I walk through it I'll post again.

What is your goto lead electric guitar patch? I don't see an obvious one in the SP6 set, and the PC3 set is a little daunting to audition - thanks!

I just left a little gift for any/all SP6 owners over at the SP6 Facebook Users Group, a small set of factory sounds from PC3/KORE, loaded into and saved in my Forte (I think that might make them a tad more SP6-friendly). Stuff that I've seen requested recently.

Includes 3 lead guitars, one 12 string and a solo tenor sax.

They come from PC3 to Forte... so they might come up in a weird state, might require some knob tweaking or param re-assignments. Note the leads all used mono pressure on PC3 by default for vibrato and I didn't have time to reassign it to the many layers in each program. (And the modwheel is already occupied with wah or feedback.) Still hoping you guys might have some fun with these even without aftertouch.

Cool.

A nice system enhancement for the SP6 would be additional options on the CC Pedal Page to allow the pedal to send Aftertouch or Mod Wheel not just for this reason of imported programs (or use as a MIDI controller for something that expects aftertouch) but also so even mod wheel effects could be in invoked when you don't have a hand free.

So have spent a week with my new SP6, and pretty happy with it, particularly the PC3 sound set I've loaded. Can anyone tell me how to change leslie speed on the PC3 organ sounds? How can I assign leslie speed to the variation button, or a pedal?


Thanks in anticipation.

I tried, really really ... but can't love the SP6 for gigging like I do with my PC1x ... think it is time to sell it frown

2nd that Leslie speed switch assign of Chris47's from the PC3 soundset organs which I also loaded and liked very much along with a lot of the pianos and other patches. I'm sure if I dug into the SP6 I could get the Leslie assigned to the pedal or switch but if someone has done this already that would be great.... it shouldn't be to difficult.

I'm hoping the other manufacturers will follow suit and launch 7x's of their own. (Casio, with your 5-pin MIDI socket - I'm looking at you...)

Cheers, Mike.

I’m actually using Robs Caster a lot. It may be the wrong kind of lead for you, but that guitar just sings beautifully.

Thanks Coker - I'm currently between my loaner and my purchase (arrives next week) but I will try it.

I keep getting blown away by this thing. I found the stock dual Leslie speaker effect for B3s to have a little too much variation in volume during a “rotation.” Using the SP6 sound editor, I found what must be at least 50 different Leslie insert effects, which seem to be different combinations of Leslie speaker models, amounts of overdrive, EQing, speeds, etc. Wow! I now have about six different Leslie inserts that will work for me. What a fantastic keyboard!

Well, I just ordered mine. Many thanks to Dave Weiser, to everyone here for their comments, and to Massachusetts for a sales tax-free weekend :-) Here's hoping I love mine as much as I did my loaner.

Probably the wrong thread for this, but I have a couple thoughts about Kurzweil (whining - ha ha).

For my own preferences, Kurzweil seems to be going in the wrong direction.
I had a K2600, and I consider that their pinnacle.

By this, I mean they are adding things like streaming, and following the trend of more sound/patch material, and taking away the things that I consider are more important.

The new keyboards no longer have a ribbon or breath control input, they have less audio outputs, and control pedal inputs.
Some don't have aftertouch or a sequencer either.

My ideal keyboard would have the dual ribbons and breath control input, the nine sliders accompanied by nine knobs, and the setup controller capabilities of the the K series.
Yes - I know - maybe I should have kept the 2600.

If it were about 1/3 the weight, I probably would have.

As a non-gigging home hobbyist, I use a computer for most of my sounds, and a keyboard as my main controller.
A gutted 2600, even without any sound producing capability, but with all the controller capability intact, along with a massive weight reduction program would find me in a buying position again.

/whining

sorry for the thread derail, but it feels good to get that off my chest. laugh

Hi! Two questions:

1) has anyone found a shortcut to change the case of a character when naming a patch?

2) Has anyone been programming a multi and experienced the transpose value of a layer changing when you went to a different screen within the edit function?

Thanks!

1) thanks - i'll try to get some input to the developers.
2) According to the SP-6 FB page, this is a known issue already reported. Here's hoping they fix it in the next release.

Did anyone else think that the sustain pedal that shipped with the SP-6 was particularly hard to press down- does it loosen up?

If the pedal moves freely but is hard to press, then that sounds like spring compression or tension, which will probably not loosen up unless the springs are really cheap.

Yes, I don't use it. I replaced it with a Korg 1/2 damper pedal (DS-1H).

I ordered a Korg (DS-1H) also...although Kurzweil has their new half damper advertised all over their web pages...I have been unable to find a manufactured one for sale anywhere in the world so far...

pressing + and - together changes the character case when naming a patch

I want to thank David Weiser for the excellent soundset I got from him! The high quality sounds makes me more exited about the SP6.

Does anyone know how to program/assign the FX1 and FX2 knobs?
Is there a possibility, when you are editing a sound, to compare the editted sound with the original one?
