Selecting a Voice from a PLG150PF Plug-in Board in a CS6R

Last Update: 03/10/2012

Since different Plug-in Boards can be used in the same Plug-in slot, the 'PLG1' and 'PLG2' Voice Memory locations do not come pre-programmed with Voices for a specific Plug-in Board; Factory 'Plug-in' Voices for a specific board can be loaded into the CS6R via MIDI or a SmartMedia Card.

A PLG150PF Plug-in Board comes with a diskette containing PF Plug-in Voice Data. To load this data into an CS6R, a MIDI sequencer (software or hardware), capable of transmitting system exclusive data is required.

Once the Plug-in Voice Data is in the CS6R, it can be saved to a SmartMedia Card. If the data needs to be loaded again, it can then be done from the Card, thus eliminating the need for an external sequencer.

Click here for 'Saving and Loading data using a SmartMedia Card on a CS6R'.

In addition to the 'Plug-in' Voices used in the 'PLG' memory locations of the CS6R, the PLG150PF also comes with 'Board' Voices stored on the board itself.
NOTE: When loading Voice Data into an CS6R using the 'MIDI' connector, the 'HOST SELECT' switch on the rear panel must be set to 'MIDI'. When using the 'TO HOST' connector, it must be set to 'PC-2' for a PC, or 'Mac' for a Macintosh. Click here for 'Connecting a CS6R with a computer or hardware sequencer'.

1) Press the [UTILITY] button.

2) Turn the (PAGE) knob until 'MIDI Sw' is displayed on the left side of the screen.
