CtrlrPanel_Korg_DW-6000_MacroDX

Posted by & filed under Panels.

This is a panel for the KORG DW-6000 synthesizer. All parameters exposed by its System Exclusive specification are editable. In addition, I´ve added processing of incoming MIDI CC messages. The mapping is fixed and you can find a mapping list included in the zip file. Whenever the panel receives one of the mapped controllers it will output the corresponding SysEx message to the device. Thus you can control your DW using any hardware midi controller.

The panel also contains program select buttons that will send program dump requests to the DW. So if you set up a bi-directional connection between the synth and the computer a program change will update the panel controls to the values of the selected program.

The panel was created and tested with Ctrlr Build 1613 on Win7 64.

    Hello, first I’d like to thank you for the precious job you’re doing. I’ve got a DW 6000 and the panel is fantastic. Unfortunately I’ve Got a problem with the CC mapping. The CC numbers in the list you supply , don’t match. In fact , for example, Chorus turns on/off with CC 12, not 34 as written in the list, same for Osc Wave which changes with CC number 14, not with CC number 1…and so on. I’m now checking out all the numbers one by one for remapping it. My question is: I’m I doing something wrong? Even in the editor, if I change the CC number of a specific Slider, or Switch, it doesn’t work. I’m not a programmer, as you can imagine, I’m doing my best. Waiting for answers, and thanks again.

    hey, thanks for this… its awesome and really unleashes this classic beast. for anyone else who may be having issues with the cc’s – I went through and marked what cc actually controls each parameter (for me at least – running on mac) MIDI CC Parameter

    Hello Macrodx or whoever stumbles upon this message. I downloaded this panel and nothing would work at first.

    So I went looking into the xml file, I saw that all the sysex strings that are supposed to start with –F0 42 30 04 41– the 30 actually read 3y ? So I did a -find and replace- and now what I get is that I can change programs but nothing else works ? Anyone has a clue please. Thanks !

      Also meant to ask, I see mentions of CCs in the above comments, am I supposed to be able to edit my DW-6000 through good old CC commands ? I tried programming my controller (Roland A800Pro) and the only CC’s that work are the generic ones (7 for volume, 64 for Hold, 1 for modulation etc.) Any help extremely welcome !
