FOR SOME REASON, finding patch banks for the BOSS SE-50 series of multi-effect units on the internet, can be almost impossible (if your not clear on what “Sysex”, System Dumps” or “MIDI Bulk Dumps”are then visit “More info on sysex“).
So I decided to post these alternate reverb / effect algorithms for the world to have.
I’ll include some commentary on the patches when I can. I haven’t loaded them all and can’t seem to load some others.
You can only load or dump all the programs at once, so if you’ve made any changes to any of the programs that you want to keep, make sure you do a bulk dump INTO your computer before loading anything new.
To get the SE-50 into loading state, repeatedly press the <UTILITY> button until you get to “MIDI CHANNEL” then press the <Parameter> button till you get to “MIDI BULK LOAD WAITING” screen, then send the dump using your favourite sysex utility.
If you have any other SE-50 related info or patches send ’em over to me and I’ll post em here!
The Studio Reverbs
The is the thing that started all this. Has some real nice reverbs all set for use in a studio environment. All the ‘Direct’ levels are set to “0” and they’ve been arranged by category (i.e. ROOMs, then PLATEs, then etc). Not too sure where this came from. but if you know who did it, let me know so I can buy him a beer!
