6 colors but only 4 channels

You got 6 different colors but only 4 channels of control to work with, how would you combine these colors?

Neutral white
Deep red
Cyan
Cool blue
Violet
Green

This is what I was thinking:

Channel 1 - neutral white
Channel 2 - deep red/violet
Channel 3 - cyan/green
Channel 4 - cool blue

Current limitation of my Typhon controller. I have an Arduino Mega on my desk but have yet to figure out how to program it.

I would move the violet to join the cool blue. That is the only change I would make.

I would listen to Hoppy.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
