Download Links Are Back

I will be using this post to manage my download links.  As files are added or updated it will all happen right here. To open the zip archives I use WinZip for windows, and Archive Utility for macs. For help with MIDI sysex file transfer (all synths except System-1 and Venom) check out this post. For the Roland System-1 and M-Audio Venom, you will need to refer those manufacturers for their file transfer methods.

My selected synthesizer patches are ABSOLUTELY FREE to download.

    1. Hello,
      I can't unzip the Venom Patches file once I download it, it says "the archive is either an unknown format or damaged" - any help? thanks

  3. Hey,

    I also have an Andromeda. I would love to try these patches but I've tried to push patches onto my memory card before and it caused the card to freeze my entire machine. Had to format my card and lost all my personal custom patches. Was a bad day.

    I wouldn't mind getting a additional (obviously rare) card to just experiment with Sysex-ing stuff across. How do you upload patches?

    We should chat. Email me at foxinni at gmail. I got some ideas we need to chat about regarding our passions.

  4. will try the andromeda and matrix patches tomorrow. looks cool.
    next up I'll go ahead and ask if you have any cool korg ex8000 patches around since I've seen you demo a dw8000 on youtube.

    I had a dw8000, sold it, and eventually decided I wanted that sound back for a variety of reasons so I picked up the ex8000. just trying to get a jump start on hearing it sound good for the kind of music I (we) like.

  5. G Storm Electronica,

    I just purchased an Oberheim Matrix 6, and I would love to download your great sounding patches. The only problem is I do not know how to back up my preset patches. I use an Mac computer and SysEx Librarian. When I press record on the computer then go to Master then 11 to "Send All" I press >> (this should be interpreted as Yes, right?) but nothing happens. Do you have any suggestions before I download your patches? Also I have a midi cable connection to midi out and a 1/4 cable to audio out to my audio interface. I really enjoy you music and your epic patches!
    Thanks

    1. Make sure system exclusive is enabled on the Matrix-6. After selecting '11 Send All" you'll need to press the 'value' soft button under the display. When it says 'ready' then press the 'yes' button. Confirm the bank was sent properly by re-writing a patch name with one character of the name changed, then transmit the data from the computer back to the matrix-6. Note that re-loading the bank will not overwrite the current patch, which is just a temporary edit location....so select the next patch and then go back to it and it will show whatever was written to patch memory. Hope this helps. -g

  6. Thanks for posting these patches G-storm this is fantastic, if I only get the patches into my 6R. I'm having trouble transfering with midi-ox. The Matrix is recieving the MIDI, but no changes in patches.

    Running MIDI-OX from win7 64bit. RME UFX soundcard midi out into Matrix 6r.

    Master Edit:
    01 Omni mode : ON
    02 Controller : ON
    03 Patches : ON
    04 Systemx : ON

    This should be it, right? Maybe I need to edit settings in Midi OX or should default MIDI OX settings be OK?

    I'll be greatful for any help!
    Thanks

    1. Forgot to mention that software version is 2.13. And transfering Sysex from the Matrix apparently works fine.

  7. G Storm Electronica,
    Thanks for your help, I was able to download the backup of the patches. Now I am unable to send them to the Matrix 6. Do you know the procedure to receive SysEx (should I use the Cassette tape input)?
    Cheers

  9. G storm,
    I am still having troubles with sending patches to my Matrix 6. I have searched the internet but have found no solution. I am using a may with SysEx librarian, and an audio midi interface. I do not have a cassette player, I am able to backup patches but I am not able to transmit them. Do I need to have any menus open on the Matrix.
    Thanks for your help in advance.
    Best,
    GDStudios

    1. Confirm midi channel matches, and sysex is turned on in the master edit settings. Also, patches uploaded to the Matrix-6 will not reveal themselves until another patch is selected.

  10. the matrix-6 patches are so amazing. I have spent a lot of time with the matrix and I'm still getting so much from these. Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. Hey! How I can install the venom patch? Im new in the venom synth. Grettings from chile.

    1. You will need the software that came with the synth on CD. If not you may be able to download it. From there you will be able to not only manage your own sounds, and import the sounds from the interent, but also have access to deeper editing capabilities within the Venom.

  15. Having trouble loading the jx8p patches with midiox. what program do you recommend?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It should work if the midi port is present and active. Just make sure the buffer size matches the patch size and maybe add some delay between buffers. Sorry it took so long getting back, I just resolved an issue with my reply feature.

    1. I'm not sure. Either SH-101 or SH-2 if that helps.
