Old Prophet Patches - wav to midi file conversion?

Post by Le Bone » Fri Dec 15, 2006 4:13 am

Ok for some of you tech heads in here with brains bigger than the size of the known galaxy.

There are various places where Prophet 5 patches can be downloaded or bought. These are in wav format (as good old cassette tape backups used to be).

Has anyone tried converting the wave files (they sound like a modem!) into appropriate midi messages or Creamware Patch Bank information. As a principle this data was always digital, just as a fax machine is a digital scanner and the information used to be converted into digital data in the synth. The hard part would be taking the appropriate signals/frequencies and mapping to the PRO-12.

We can then delight in loading original patches from the original machine!

Or am I asking for just too much (again)! All hail to the tech heads!

Looks like someone is already doing something similar. Would need a bit of tweaking!

Now a question of changing scripts to convert the sysex to that of the PRO-12.

There are some very clever people on this Planet.

Interesting: wav to sysex then to txt, so you can create the patch in Pro-12!
Patch sheets exchange is maybe more simple... :lol:
4PC + Scope 5.0 + no more Xite + 2xScope Pro + 6xPulsarII + 2xLunaII + SDK + a lot of devices (Flexor III & Solaris 4.1 etc.) + Plugiator.

with the help of the original Prophet sysex specification and the creamware preset patch spec it wouldn`t be difficult to make converter tool.....

thats what has been done on the website in the link and you can print out the settings. the chap has also produced a settings list from the text file to a soft synth, so all we need is the text file to creamware patch and we can convert any patch created on theoriginal prophet to asb format. king nero sells sounds for prophet 5 so could convert those. so many options.
