This is a panel for the Moog Source with Encore MIDI retrofit called “SMK”.

I made the panel for my Source with the newest Encore firmware v4.11. You need at least v4.09 in order to use all features of this Ctrlr panel.

I won’t make a tutorial unless someone asks for it. If you don’t know how to use Ctrlr my tutorial for the SuperJX panel may help you:Download

A list of the SMK features:

– patch memory expansion: 16 banks with 16 patches making 256 patches

– sending and receiving the editbuffer

– sending and receiving the 16 patches (one by one) from the current bank

– sending and receiving bulk dumps

– receiving pitchbend, notes over 4 octaves, and the 3 Midi CC’s mentioned below.

– arpeggiator can be set to sync to midiclock, ppq can be set to 3,6,12 and 24

There are two drawbacks:

– internal sequencer is disabled. (I don’t need it)

– Mod-Wheel is not controllable via Midi. This is quite a pity.

Only Cutoff, Resonance and Glide are reacting to CC’s. For all other parameters the panel has to send the whole apr-sysex dump when changing a value. But this works surprisingly smooth. It is very close to “realtime” albeit the CC’s are reacting even smoother.

When you fit the Encore SMK Midi retrofit some tuning has to be done anyway – while your at it I recommend to do the complete tuning procedure. It made a notable difference on mine.
