Dexed - Cart 1.0All the classic Yamaha DX Patches you can eat!Download: Dexed - Cart_LPX.zip (737 MB archive, 1.28 GB expanded (!)) ** Note - Large download!! **Instructions: Once unpacked, Copy the "Cartridges" folder to~/Library/Audio/Presets/Digital Suburban/Dexed/
(that's the Library folder in your home directory)
This was a *huge* undertaking - 3800+ banks, over 118,000 patches. At about 5 mins per bank to convert, this took well over 300 hours of conversions alone (not to mention the time spent coding the macro automation, which wasn't insignificant either).
Notes: When you save the current Dexed patch as a Logic aupreset file, it saves the full bank of 32 patches, with the current patch selected. So each patch does actually contain the full bank that patch came from, but it's a technical detail you can largely ignore - just search/browse/choose individual presets from Logic's browser, and they load pretty quick. Blank patches at the end of banks have been largely removed, but blank patches within banks to separate sections have been left as is.
The folder structure is the same as the original Cart 1.0 sysex download, except that each single bank file becomes a folder, with the patches that bank contains inside. You can of course organise the collection as you wish.
The patches have been prepended with their patch number (1 to 32) to keep the ordering the same as in the original banks. If you wish to remove these, you can do so with a renaming utility - but you'll have to watch for filename collisions if you choose to do this.Enjoy!
