C6 SysEx Manager not getting Catalina 64-bit update

:thinking: :smile_cat:

Maybe Sysex Librarian will do the trick on MacOS.

The octa doesn’t need a tool for updates. The mnm and md though still in decent use are legacy products and unfortunately support for legacy products cannot last forever. Even though I am a mnm owner and a bit disappointed I understand this.
Luckily there are other programs to send sysex, sysex librarian is a popular one.

not concerned for the Octatrack, since it’s still in production, and you can simply mount over usb… but I’ve got a Machinedrum that I’d love a proper tool to sync samples/data and handle backups. if Sysex Librarian can do that, I’ll give it a shot… but I’m happy to hear other suggestions that may be more geared towards Elektron gear.

Sysex librarian doesn’t work for backing up machine drum from my tests so far. Nor does it seem to work for sending samples or User waves on monomachine. Guess I’ll have to stick with Mojave until absolutely necessary.

I use MDEdit

I could see this becoming slightly fun - what waves does your MnM have in it?

Will ones with the Immortal Waves library be more sought after then the stock waves?

Could be a good reason to have two of them.

So many positives to this :joy:

I just upgraded my Mac to Catalina 10.15.2 (19C57) and it looks like they have dropped support for all 32 bit applications rendering C6 useless for me. If anyone else out there is running OSX, I would hold off on upgrading until Elektron upgrades this legacy software.

They won’t be, you’re a bit late to the party (try the search) C6 will eventually be replaced in functionality by Transfer which should be supporting Catalina in due course (not yet) so Catalina users need to look for their own upload/backup solutions in the short term. Sysex Librarian is fine in Catalina, but again, this is old news. C6 won’t be updated beyond Mojave

Same here… damn wish I read your post first lol

Are you able to receive with Sysex Librarian?

Yep - works fine both ways, it’s tried and tested and trusted - just be sure to learn the settings it has under the hood, it can make a difference to the transfers - but mostly ensure the interval between successive messages isn’t too long

It can work nearly as quickly as C6 can, but unlike C6 it won’t peek into a dump to tell you what’s within - i…e. number of sounds or patters etc - still a useful tool to have around

Would be interested to know what setting you tried it with, as I tried updating my A4 Mk1 earlier via Sysex Librarian and it didn’t work (just sat on the receiving sysex screen and never completed). As I’ve not got access to another Mac without Catalina on I’m kinda stuck now I guess…

I’m trying to use SysEx Librarian to send some Sysx patches to my Digitone but the Digitone isn’t showing up in the Destinations dropdown. Perhaps I need change some settings on the Digitone? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess I should also say I’m trying via USB and I’ve tried changing the USB settings to “USB MIDI”.

Update

Not sure what changed but the Digitone is now showing up in the SysEx Librarian destinations dropdown. :man_shrugging:

Hello, I need you to update the C6 and I can not load projects and I think it’s a shame that after the time that has passed since the launch of Catalina you have not updated it yet.

As stated earlier.

Elektron has stated C6 will not be updated and have recommended using sysex librarian instead.
