PatchGen is a Cubase patch modifier for Roland Fantom-XR/X series synthesizers.

PatchGen will modify the stock Roland Cubase patch file to support add-on SRX expansion boards so that all SRX instruments are available directly from with the Cubase instrument selection drop-downs.  PatchGen uses existing Roland instrument lists (included in the download), so there's no need to type in hundreds of instrument names!

PatchGen can be run from the command line or from a batch file (an example is provided that shows how to patch the original "Fantom-X V2.xml" patch file to also include instruments for the SRX-01 and SRX-06 expansion boards). Type "PatchGen /?" at the command line for help with command-line options.

Basic Usage

Example command line to produce a patch file with SRX-01 and SRX-06 instruments added:

PatchGen.exe -n9 -i "Fantom-X V2.xml" srx-01.txt srx-06.txt

The resulting output file is named "Fantom-X-patched.xml" (unless overridden by command-line option "-o").

(input patch file is "Fantom-X V2.xml", patch lists are "srx-01.txt" and "srx-06.txt", and "-n9" instructs PatchGen to insert the new patch banks at the 9th bank position).

Original Roland Cubase patch (.xml) file and SRX instrument list files are available here.

Revision History

2007/04/13: initial release.  PatchGen verified for SRX-01 and SRX-06.  Patching many SRX boards into the same patch file makes Cubase SX 2 a bit upset.  Seems to be OK for a few SRX boards at a time.
