What if the OB6 had a screen?

What if the OB6 had a screen?

What if the OB6 had a screen? This is an app Iíve been working on. I always want to be able to filter patches by category but there are lots of other possibilities. Of course you could use a computer or a tablet but a larger device that takes your focus away from the instrument doesnít suit every workflow. If thereís enough interest I might finish development and do a release to the App Store. Should work for Prophet 6 too. Let me know what you think!

This is great!

Would it be possible to add the functionality of being able to name the patch on the app so that it writes the name data (via sysex?) to the patch stored on the synth?

Could you do a P5/10 skin too?

Could this be connected via USB out on the synth to the lightning port of an iOS device using the Camera Connection Kit?

Iíd totally buy this app.

Good! Glad you're interested  :)

Yes that's a planned feature, and part of the mvp (minimum viable product)

A Prophet 5/10 version is possible using the same principles but whether I'd roll everything into the same app, I'm not sure. The OB6 and Prophet 6 version will almost certainly be the same app as they're so similar in everything but the voicing. The Prophet 5/10 do differ however and in addition I have some planned features for the former that wouldn't necessarily make sense on the latter. But we'll see, final feature set, pricing and monetisation models etc are all to be determined!

I do only own the P10 (not P6/OB6).

I look forward to seeing how this develops.

If it gets the ability to rearrange patch locations on the app then that would be brilliant.

Certainly open to doing a P5/10 version. Let's see how the OB6/P6 version pans out.

What exactly do you mean? So an easy way to go "Swap Patch 30 Bank 3 with Patch 10 Bank 4" ... ?

Yes. Basically being able to move a patch to a new location. I guess duplicate, swap and overwrite functions would be useful.

Yeah nice. What I DON'T want to do is to try and cram a fully fledged librarian into a small screen. A laptop or iPad is better for that. But simpler librarian functions like you suggest are workable I think.

That's a great idea! and +1 for being able to use the USB port instead of Bluetooth MIDI

... and you could even add a LFO eventually!  ;)
