How to install the soundpack to the opsix hardware
This section describes how to install the sound pack into your opsix unit using the Sound Librarian. If your opsix is not detected by the Sound Librarian, try reconnecting the opsix hardware again. If this does not solve the issue, please check out the Troubleshooting section in the opsix Sound Librarian manual.
1. Update the opsix hardware to the latest version
In order to use opsix soundpacks, you will need to update your opsix unit to version 2.0.0 or higher via the opsix Updater. Opsix units running a version older than 2.0.0 will not be able to correctly load and run these programs. In addition, you will need to use the opsix Sound Library to transfer the data to your opsix. Please download and install the latest versions from the Korg website (https://www.korg.com/us/support/download/product/0/874/).
NOTE: If you have your own programs stored on your opsix, please make sure to back them up before sending any new data to the hardware. If this new sound data is loaded into the Sound Librarian and transferred to the hardware, it will overwrite any existing programs.
2. Download and install the opsix Sound Librarian
The opsix Sound Librarian lets you view, organize, and share opsix data with a Mac or Windows computer via USB and transfer sound data back and forth between the opsix and the computer.
After you downloaded and installed the application from the Korg website (https://www.korg.com/us/support/download/product/0/874/), the Sound Librarian application will be found at :
[Mac] Applications > KORG > opsix > opsix Sound Librarian
[Windows] Start menu > KORG > opsix Sound Librarian
3. Backup the sound data on your opsix unit to your computer
- Connect the opsix hardware unit to your computer via a USB cable, open the Sound Librarian and confirm that your opsix unit is connected.
- Confirm the status is “CONNECTED” then select Send/Receive > Receive All Data. The Sound Librarian will update to display the data received from the hardware unit.
- Select File > Save All... A file save dialogue will appear. Select the location where you want to store the data on your computer and enter the desired name, then save.
4. Add the sound pack data, and transmit to your opsix
Make sure you have the backup data on your computer, and follow the steps below to add the sound pack data.
- Drag & Drop all of the “.op6program” files to the location where you want to add them to the program list in the opsix librarian. Note that dragging & dropping the files will replace the programs in the Librarian software.
- Select Send/Receive > Send All Programs. The opsix will be updated with the data.
