UDO Super 6

v1.3 2022-10-09

Super 6 panel A.JPG

The objective of this editor and librarian is to support you in your workflow when using the Super 6 synth.
 

It will bring you the visibility of the saved and actual values of parameters, including all modulations and a direct access to the parameters, including the “Shift” ones.
Each program can have additional information as author, description, category and usage documented. This can be saved and recalled automatically later on.


It provides a Bank manager that allows you to arrange your programs in different banks of 128 programs and to organize them as you want without requiring you to care about slot names, etc… Move, Copy, Swap operations are provided and it is also possible to visualize and copy DDS1/LFO1 waveforms from one program to another.


Finally, a Wave manager allows you to visualize all the Super 6 waveforms present in the synth but also on your computer allowing you to perform copy operations between your computer, the DDS1, LFO1 or any waveform slot.
It is also reading some wav files and provides the ability to convert them to the .ws6 file format.


Important remark:

Due to status of the Super 6 firmware and its Midi implementation (v0.52) the editor will not fully work as it would in an ideal world.
For example, there is no direct access via sysex messages to the Edit buffer which is preventing some direct audible feedback when changing waveforms. To solve this, the A1-P1 program is used as “buffer” for some operations. Another example is that there is no direct access to the individual modulation slots through CC/NRPN messages which is preventing automation of several modulation amounts at once.

At this stage there is also no Save program function from the panel due to the lack of documentation and detailed information on the individual parameters way of working towards the patch file but this is worked on and is the top priority for the next version.

 

Features:

  • UDO Super 6 interface with same look as actual synthesizer (black version; sorry for the fans of the blue one)

  • Top “LCD screen” displaying parameter name and full description, CC/NRPN number used (or “No CC”), current and saved values

  • Sliders, rotary buttons and switches with same look as synth

  • Bi-directional behavior (for CC/NRPN parameters only): modifying a parameter on the panel modifies it on the synth; modifying a parameter on the synth modifies the panel

  • Envelopes graphs handled by mouse or the  DAHDSR/AHDSR sliders

  • Visualization of all fixed and user modulations source, destination and amount

  • Low (CC) and high (NRPN) resolution modes

  • Desktop mode that modifies some modulations’ names

  • Load programs from banks or from individual .s6 files (no Save at the moment)

  • Direct mode to directly load and change programs on the synth

  • Ability to use your own Init program

  • Easy program renaming

  • Programs have a name, category, author,  description and step by step usage notes

  • Super 6 drive browser

  • Display or export of text files listing all parameters values, comparisons or only differences

  • Complete librarian providing handling of 2 disk banks and one “Super 6” bank (128 programs by bank). The “Super 6” bank is the one from the actual synthesizer drive.

  • Operations in banks for programs: init, copy, move, swap programs, copy waves

  • Wave manager displaying the waves from DDS1, LFO1, standard and alternative wave slots but also from any .ws6 file and some supported .wav files

  • Load of some supported .wav files and conversion/up-sampling/save to Super 6 .ws6 format

  • Some basic wave operations (normalize, flip horizontal, flip vertical)

  • Copy of waves between the different sources (wav, ws6, DDS1, LFO1, standard and alternative wave slots) and destinations (DDS1, LFO1, standard and alternative wave slots)

  • Different switches to modify the behavior of the panel

  • Panel zoom with memory

  • Standalone versions for PC and Mac

  • VST versions for PC (64 bits)

  • VST and AU versions for Mac)
