DMC-6 / DMC-6L Firmware Update

We’ve released a new version of the DMC-6 / DMC-6L RGB firmware.

 

The new version is available on the Files page HERE.

Here’s how it works:

 

[4] [5] [6]

[1] [2] [3]

Red Mode:

Press-hold any button 1-5 to save currently selected TL and MO presets to that location.

Press the currently selecte preset to bypass both TL and MO.

1.  Preset 1 (defaults to 00A)

2.  Preset 2 (defaults to 00B)

3.  Preset 3 (defaults to 01A)

4.  Preset 4 (defaults to 01B)

5.  Preset 5 (defaults to 02A)

6.  Next mode (press-hold to enter White Mode)

 

Green Mode:

Press-hold any button 1-5 to save currently selected TL and MO presets to that location.

Press the currently selecte preset to bypass both TL and MO.

1.  Preset 6 (defaults to 02B)

2.  Preset 7 (defaults to 03A)

3.  Preset 8 (defaults to 03B)

4.  Preset 9 (defaults to 04A)

5.  Preset 10 (defaults to 04B)

6.  Next mode (press-hold to enter White Mode)

 

Blue Mode:

1.  Looper Record / Overdub

2.  Looper Play / Stop

3.  Looper Undo / Redo

4.  Looper Half-Speed

5.  Looper Reverse

6.  Next mode (press-hold to enter White Mode)

 

White Mode:

1.  Timeline preset down (hold for scroll down)

2.  Mobius preset down (hold for scroll down)

3.  Tap tempo (hold to reset TL and MO to program 00A)

4.  Timeline preset up (hold for scroll up)

5.  Mobius preset up (hold for scroll up)

6.  Next mode (press-hold to enter White Mode)

 

In Red and Green preset modes, scrolling down one preset from 00A on either device will BYPASS that device.  Scrolling down one from bypass will set that device to “don’t care,” meaning that no MIDI is sent.  Saving a preset on the DMC-6 with these options set will either bypass the selected unit for that preset or send no change to it at all.  If “don’t care” is set for a preset, that device will not change patches when this preset is recalled.  This is useful for setting up a bank of Timeline-only or Mobius-only patches that leaves the other device unchanged.

Power-up options:

Press-hold B1 at power-up to assign expression pedal input to EXPRESSION on both TL and MO.

Press-hold B2 at power-up to assign expression pedal input to LOOPER LEVEL on TL

Press-hold B3 at power-up to assign expression pedal input to TAP TEMPO for both TL and MO (momentary footswitch required.)

Set the expression input to TAP TEMPO if no expression pedal is connected.

Configure TL and MO Globals as follows:

TL – MIDICH 1, MIDITH ON, LPEXIT PLAY, BYPASS BUFBYP

MO – MIDICH 2, MIDITH ON

Connect MIDI out from DMC-6 / DMC-6L to Timeline or Mobius MIDI IN, then from MIDI OUT on that device to MIDI IN of next device.  MIDI order does not matter.

After uploading firmware, or to reset to factory settings, press-hold B1+B6 at power-up on DMC-6 until LED1 and LED6 flash rapidly.  This initializes the memory locations and is required after the initial upload.
