GearFest UK 22: Teenage Engineering TX-6 1.1.4 Adds USB Recording

To flash drive, more      04/07/22

Rarely has a product been more divisive than the Teenage Engineering TX-6 portable mixer. Except perhaps the OP-1 Field :-). 

We know that the TX-6 - 12 channel portable mixer and interfaces  is expensive. It is also highly desirable which kind of goes along with the whole TE thing - they do make lovely objects, but they are expensive - I guess we'll just have to get over that and buy them or not.

But I do confess I have a bit of GAS for the TX-6 - and TE have already started to update the firmware - as with the original OP-1 which they got a higher amount of life out of a relatively small DSP. The new TX-6 and OP-1 Field have bags of extra processing capacity ready to fill up with features.
The new TX-6 Firmware adds:

  • usb mass storage disk record/playback for 24-bit 48 kHz stereo wav files, including armed recording with automatic start on audio detect.
  • PO-sync output on aux and cue, with selectable 8th note for PO-sync and 16th note for modular systems.
  • external midi control of all TX–6 parameters, for complete remote control over midi.
  • extended midi support for synth mode to play the synth chromatically using midi notes from an external keyboard.
  • added 'scenes' to save and load all settings.
  • usb audio multiple sample rate support: 48 kHz and additionally 44.1 kHz, for compatibility with MPC live etc. 
  • BLE midi clock in/out support with clock routing settings.
  • BLE host mode to connect peripherals like BLE midi keyboards.
  • switchable aux and cue outputs, to be able to utilize the higher output level of the aux jack if needed for high impedance headphones.
  • added balanced mono input mode in addition to the stereo / mono / split modes.
  • parameters keep their values until a knob is moved, making it easier to switch knob config without undesired behavior.
  • no snap back of the freeze FX parameter. click to reset instead.
  • smoother change of FX I send.
  • stability bugfix for usb midi host mode.
  • usb audio mode set on menu exit, instead of directly.

If you are lucky enough to own the TX-6 - the firmware is available now here:
