Line6 editor .sve file format?

Recommended Posts

The Line6 Spider MkII editor looks great, but I'd rather quit playing my guitar than install Microsoft windows just for this (and no, it doens't work in Wine).

 

I can easily send/receive patches by simply cat'ing /dev/snd/midiC0D0 and hitting "dump-current" on the Spider amp.  But, unfortunately Line6 decided to obfuscate the patch in the sve file. 

 

Here's a .sve patch found in the forums:

And here's the same patch dumped back to my pc from the amp:

It's not enough to simply trim off the "SVEP" prefix   :(
 
Anyone have a secret decoder ring to convert .sve patches to midi patches we can send directly to the amp without using Microsoft® Windows and the Line6 software?
 
 
thanks,
