Programming the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 synthesizer can be a fairly labor intensive task. While I am compelled to use the [Latch 1] + [Hold] patch reset shortcut and start a new sound from scratch, I find myself creating up the same types of patches. As a time saving measure I’ve made a set of templates that cover basic types of sounds including basses, leads, drums, paraphonic patches, sound effects, and sequences. These patches serve as a starting point for further tweaking and embellishment. The file (linked below) contains a sysex dump of User Bank 2 which contains 97 templates and a couple of extra patches. Documentation on each patch is also provided with recommended parameter changes and application of the sounds.
On occasion, there’s a request for a list of my patches included in the Pro 2 factory banks. The following file is a sysex dump of user bank 3 (99 Patches) which includes the patches submitted as well as new ones:
