Question Is it possible to do a MIDI dump of the settings from the System 6000 for archival purposes

It is possible to request a SysEx dump of current settings - or parts of current settings - and presets. We have not officially released the SysEx documentation, but if you are familiar with SysEx documents we can send it to you - hopefully making it possible for you to set your sequencer up for archiving current settings and presets. System6000 / Reverb6000 version 2.0 and later includes the option to insert a PCMCIA card which can be formatted to hold 10 additional Engine, Scene and Routing preset banks. These new User banks will be accessible directly from the Library pages, which is very convenient. You can download the latest software here.
