Korg DW6000 editor built into the DW6000

video upload by Craig Barnes

"This is a Teensy 4.1 based sysex editor for the Korg DW6000, it can hold 999 patches and update the DW on each patch selection. Sysex params also have corresponding CC numbers so it is easily controlled by a DAW or other external controller. It can also receive and send MIDI over USB to all connection to a PC or MAC without a MIDI interface.

It can receive sysex patches over MIDI and these can be saved in the editor or synth.

In master mode the editor is in charge and simply sends new patch data every time a program change is made. The synth memories are irrelevant at this point, but it also allows you to build a bank of sounds in the synth if you wish as any of the patch data sent from the editor can be saved in a synth memory location.

in slave mode the editor simply sends a program change to the synth and recalls a patch. You can edit the patch with the editor and save it in the synth, but it will not be in sync with the editor memories 1-64.

You can send individual or all the patches of the synth out as sysex messages from the menu.

Any suggestions I will consider implementing if possible.

Also a copy of the factory patches are stored onboard and you can send these at anytime to the DW6000 to factory initialise its sounds.

Also you can send all of your patches from the DW6000 to the editor to bring it up to sync with your synth, probably the best thing to do. The only caveat is you will have no patch names as the DW6000 does not hold that data, so you will have to rename the patches if you require names.

Schematics and code can be found here."
