this is my first post on this board, so: hi guys 🙂
So far I’ve been using a few CTRLR panels to control old rack synths and am absolutely loving it. But I’m still looking for a panel for the Kawai K1r. I did a search and such a panel was mentioned but it never seems to have appeared.
Do you know of one?
Also, there is a panel for the K4 that maybe could be edited as the architecture of the synths is pretty similar. The programming of a new panel is beyond me, but could I just change the sysex strings of the existing panel to make it work?
At the moment I’m using an iPad editor called MidiDesigner to control the K1r. Someone made a nice Panel for this editor with all sysex info included, so I was hoping I could just copy the strings.
You can find the link to Miniaktools – I put my panels for K1r and K4 there.
wikter subsequently made some GUI enhancements to the K4.
I wrote the K4 panel to model basic editing (I have not added the multi) – and of course from this I could see how to modify for the k1r. I was going to sell my K1r but after I made the panel I fell in love with it all over again! So much easier to modify on the PC than reach across to the rack and try to interact …
Hope you find them useful. If you find bugs feel free to point them out (be nice!) and I will try to merge them into the panel and give you credit.
