DX200 Patches by Dan (studio-central
Here is the sysex of my DX200
user bank (128 patches). The patches are in no particular order and many
don't have any sequence pattern data. (One of the quirks of the DX200
and AN200 is that the patch data is inseperable from the sequence pattern data.)
A few of the patches are personal favorites from the DX200's factory presets
(or tweaked vewrsions thereof) and quite a few are DX7 patches that I've found
and, in many cases, tweaked. One of my personal favorites is #124...sounds
just like the PPG Wave at the beginning of Robert Palmer's, "I Didn't Mean to
Turn You On".
Proteus 2000 Now in
SoundDiver and Sysex format
Final Update 15
presets--a full bank-- made with a stock proteus 2000. Lots of industrial
noises, LFO's synced to clocks, drum loops (yep, figured it out) ambient and
trance effects, and a better OBX horn patch then you'll find in the factory
programs. There's pads, clocked voxs, arpeggios, space FX too. TX
basses are now refined 'cause you have to have these just right. Just
added some well tweaked orchestras, massive pads and a somewhat better pipe
organ (it will improve)! Oh! You also get some "default" patches that I made
that optimize knob twists along the lines of the P2k conventions. These
are incredibly valuable because you can simply change instruments and get hundreds
of great analog-ish tones. And check out the classic guitar--didn't quite finish

the beginning of what may end up being a commercial bank. So it's a bank
in development right now-very experimental--as I am pushing the p2k to its
limits to see what I can get away with. You'll find more than a few
surprises as some sounds I've made have nothing like it in the factory banks.
As of Update 13: Now that I've
made 127 presets I have now started the task of refining and adding the tweakheadz
touch of quality. I've made the file available in SoundDiver format The
tentative title of the project is called the "Proteus 2000 Electronica Collection".
Keep in mind these are not what I consider to be professionally finished though
several patches are now in their second or third revision. It generally
takes me 5-6 revisions of a patch to make something that's 1. good sounding,
2. useable and 3. sonically inspiring (and in my products, I may go up to 10
revisions). Most of these have 2 out of the three, but there are some standouts
that will show you what your p2k can do.
Note: This SoundDiver bank
is in .lib format. Once you load it into SoundDiver you can drag the presets
to where you like in the memory manager. Make sure your unit is set to
MIDI Sysex Device ID 000.
SysEx bank as a MIDIfile (made with Logic, but should work with others)
Note: If you do not know
what sysex is, please read up on it before you mess with transfers of data.
This bank requires a sequencer that supports sysex in Midifiles, like Cakewalk,
VST or Logic. Set your sequencer to 120 bpm and make sure no other midi
events are sounding. Backup your current bank 1st. These sounds
are radical and are significantly louder than the stock proteus presets.
Sysex Bank as a Cakewalk file
Note: Make sure you set
the port of this sysex file to the port your Proteus is on. This
is a bulk dump of the entire bank. In cakewalk, go to VIEW, then SYSX
to load and transmit the bank
--kindly don't ask me to
convert to your library format. I no longer use Unisyn, don't have galaxy
review of the Proteus 2000
My Second Birth
My first Rebirth Song
of my work programming various synth modules. The .MID files were generated
by Unisyn (PC). The .ZIP files were made with XOR2 (Atari). If you have Unisyn
or XoR (any platform, but not the Amiga) all the files will work. If you don't
have either of these programs (buy them!) you may put the .MID files in any
sequencer that will read MID sysex files (not all will) when you press play
the data will be sent to your synth. On the Proteus units, set your UNIT ID
as follows: Proteus 1XR (00) Proteus 2 (01) Proteus 3 (02). Again, the ZIP files
will not work without XoR or Unisyn. Always back up your data before messing
- Tweakz QS.
Here's about 80 or so programs (no mixes) I found in my libarary that I
think are unique, though some may be represented on the expando banks. A
lot of these were programs I developed for the sanctuary and classical cards,
but I revised them to make them work with the stock QS8/7/6.1/R. This
is a Zip file and it will load into Unisyn only. Unisyn came on your
CD so use it.
Download and enjoy.
Ultimate Proteus General Midi Bank. These sounds were designed for a
Proteus /1XR with the Invision Upgrade installed. 255 sounds. The
1st 127 are GM sounds (snooz!) and the 2nd 127 are really cool big and bold
sounds. You need a Proteus XR to get to the sounds 0-63 and 128-255.
If you don't have the Invision upgrade board (which adds another
4 megs of samples) installed all the sounds will not work--but many will!
.MID format. Filename is
The Vector Plus
Orchestral Bank for the Proteus 2. This bank contains 64 fat
orchestral textures. They have been road tested for several years in my
studio. Make sure you play the controllers on these sounds as the wheels
are programmed to dynamically "morph" the timbres in real time. Check out
Chgo Symph, Big Timpani, Soft Orch. Get
vectorp2.zip. The programs were made on a stock non-XR Proteus 2 and
will load into patch locations 64-127. This is some of my better work. Free!
The Proteus/3 is
very much underrated as a module, given all you can do with it. Here's my
Eclectic Collection--64 "worldish" sounding presets. Lots of deep layers,
sound fx, environmental stuff, and, you might not have known this but the
p/3 does excellent electric guitars--check out my Fender Mustang, Gibson
ES 335. Download
