Super 6 Cheat Sheet

Someone on the FB group was asking for a Super 6 cheat sheet, with all the SHIFT functions etc. so I put this together today. Please feel free to add anything I have missed, in the comments below, and I’ll add it to this first post.

Also, if anyone has design skills and would like to make a nicely formatted .pdf version, please go ahead! I’d be happy to host it.

Thanks a lot, that is very helpful.

Maybe you could add the DDS2 tune routine under chapter Power Cycle.

Thanks, I’ll add it tomorrow. Can you point me to the place online or in the manual that details it?

Yes, it is on page 120 of manual V3

Added! That’s another hardcore confusing one like setting External Input Level. :wink:

Great job putting this together.
One thing, is it sensible to distinguish “shift mode” from actually holding down shift? Such as copying DDS1 shape to LFO1 is holding shift, but other things, such as changing unison stack is in “shift mode” (does this actually work while holding shift too? I got uncertain whilst typing this).

Good point, I’ll have a think and update later, maybe I’ll put everything in “Shift Mode” under the same heading for clarity.

That would make sense.

It might also be worth adding a pictorial representation of the clock divide values shown briefly as lit button patterns as you sweep the Tempo knob. And is it me or does it seem weird there’s a dotted 32nd note but no actual 32nd available? (With all the buttons lit you’d think maybe that would represent 32nd notes, given half of them lit correspond to 16ths.)

I can’t get this to work, seems both envelopes are tracking when I switch on tracking, is it working for others?

They are all just copied from the latest version of the manual. I haven’t tried them all out yet, but there’s a chance they are not implemented in the OS yet, like the Mix as a modulation destination. I’ll make some changes to the OP tomorrow and add (NOT IMPLEMENTED YET???) etc.

Great work!
Though I can’t seem to figure out where that TUNE button is.
(probably from the desktop version)

It’s between LOCAL and MPE! I made all the list going from left to right on the machine.

Thank you!
Didn’t spot it yesterday. Now I’m curious if it works!

Yeah it works, I tried it the other day. Shift Mode, Tune, tunes all the filters, takes a minute to do.

Hermetch - thanks for putting this together. I translated this over to a google sheet for my own reference and use. I’m happy to share it with the wider community here if folks are interested. If people want to suggest edits/updates to make it a living doc, permissions on the doc are open for comments -

Thanks for doing this, I had been meaning to update my original post with all the great suggestions posted here, but got snowed under with the mastering (my day job). This is great, I was hoping it would turn into a bit of a community project!
