I’d like to incorporate the Super 6 (Firmware 0.30) into my live touring rig. To make this feasible, I want to use Ableton Live 10 to control patch changes mid song. I have a few questions:
- How does the Super 6 “label” patches?
i.e. I would assume a patch saved to A1 would be bank 1, program 1, but what if the patch is saved to the second bank of A? Is it now bank 2? Does this mean bank B is 3, and so on?
Is there a list of the above I can refer to?
Ableton has 3 “windows” or “fields” to assign for program changes: Bank, Sub-Bank, Program. How do these relate to the Super 6, if at all?
Currently (N.B. sending MIDI over USB) changing the Bank and Sub-Bank fields in Ableton makes no difference to the Super 6. If I want to change to the first program in the second bank of A, the only way to do this is to put 9 in the program field in Ableton. That’s fine for patches in the first couple of banks, but gets confusing when working with patches saved to the second bank of F or G etc.
Is there an easier way to work with this?
- Working with Ableton as per point 4, the patch will change and the program light on the Super 6 will move to the corresponding program button, however the bank number will remain on A, even if it is playing (and sounding) a patch from another bank. This is very disconcerting and essentially means flying blind mid-performance. There’s no way by looking at the S6 I can guarantee I am on the correct patch.
How can I make the Super 6 display the correct Bank and Program button lights, when patch changes are controlled externally?
Thanks for taking the time read, and for any help with this!
