If updating, there is no need to uninstall the previous version - just install this new one over the top. Your own files (eg def.dsc) will not be affected.

DspCtrl3 'getting started' files
DspCtrl's default behaviour is to have everything switched off, greyed-out and hidden away. It's ergonomics rather than pathological introversion but it can make things tricky to begin with. If you're new to the cards or/and DspCtrl, you may find these files helpful in getting you up and running more quickly. (DspCtrl2 'getting started' files come with the program download.)

DspCtrl3 External MIDI 'Device Template' files
These files configure the behaviour of the DspCtrl3 External MIDI controls for a given device. If you write your own file for a device in your rig, do send it to me so that I can post it up here for others to use. I'll be adding some more files soon. Unzip the downloaded file into the 'Devices' folder in the DspCtrl installation folder (in Program Files\XPI)

DspCtrl help in .rtf format
The DspCtrl help system doesn't work in Windows Vista. For the benefit of anyone using that OS here is the help in one (large) rich-text format (rtf) file. The links don't work in this format but it's better than nothing.

These are the latest (final) drivers (DS2416/SW1000) from Yamaha. The downloads come with (my own) instructions. As far as I'm aware the XP drivers work with Vista and Windows 7 but I haven't personally tested either operating system thoroughly. See the forum for further information.

This is a freeware virtual MIDI cable which can be used to link a sequencer to DspCtrl in order to automate (ie record and play-back) DspCtrl control movements. The Marblesound website has disappeared so I'm making the cable available for download here

Yamaha's Patch Utility
This little utility by Yamaha enables you to control the DS2416's patching. For some applications it's all you need. Note that you need to have installed the DS2416 drivers and Yamaha's 'DS Check' program before you can use this utility. Full instructions for doing this are given in the driver downloads above. Thanks Ben for the updated version.
