Behringer Neutron patch saver

Patch saver for the Behringer Neutron

v1.2 2019-07-14

This panel can also be called “advanced patch mapper” and is not a full patch loader/saver as the Behringer Neutron does not support the load/save of programs or the manipulation of all its program parameters by Midi NRPN/CC/Sysex messages except for about 40 of them (documented on p27 and 28 of the manual).

In comparison to the Sunny Synths’ Model D and Grandmother panels, this Neutron panel is thus offering much more possibilities of exchange between the synth and your PC or your controller thanks to the addition of the Neutron OS 2.0.

Features:

  • Behringer Neutron interface with similar way of working as actual synthesizer.
  • Panel background adapted based on “Red” overlay from Heinakroon
  • Top row of support “screens” with old look
  • Visual feedback by using “LED” ring buttons and indication of the value (on change or on click)
  • “Intelligent” display following parameters selection: OSC and LFO shape blending, LFO shape order change with or without blend
  • All “hidden” 2.0 available for easy visualization and tweaking
  • Bi-directional behavior when using the synth or a controller (only for parameters indicated in p27 and 28 of the Neutron manual)
  • Envelopes graphs handled by mouse or classical ADSR rotary encoders
  • Load / Save programs from individual .syx files
  • Global settings management
  • Easy program renaming
  • Display and export of program parameters as text file
  • Ability to describe 9 input/output colored patch cables with different sources/destinations
  • Programs have a name, author, save date and description. They can be associated to a category
  • Browser of the files on the disk
  • Patch sheet tab with patch sheet for Neutron and other gear (external synths/sequencers)
  • v1.2 Automatic reading of wav files associated to a patch (in file browser)
  • v1.2 Manual/Automatic reading of any wav file (in file browser)

The manual can be downloaded from Sunny Synth’s OneDrive.

Behringer Model D patch saver

Patch saver for the Behringer Model D

v2.4 2019-07-11

This panel is only a patch loader/saver on computer as the Behringer Model D does not support the load/save of programs or the manipulation of program parameters by Midi NRPN/CC messages except for Global settings that can be transferred to the Model D.

It can thus also be called a “patch mapper”.

Features:

  • Behringer Model D patch saver/loader for PC and Mac
  • Interface with same look as actual synthesizer
  • Top row of support “screens” with old look
  • Visual feedback by using “LED” ring buttons and indication of the parameter value
  • Envelopes graphs handled by mouse or classical ADS rotary encoder and Decay switch
  • Load / Save programs from individual .syx files
  • Easy program renaming
  • Display and export of program parameters as text file
  • Ability to describe 9 input/output patch cables with different sources/destinations
  • Programs have a name, author, save date and description. They can be associated to a category
  • Browser of the files on the disk
  • Patch sheet tab with patch sheet for Model D and other gear (external synths/sequencers)
  • Patch cables (9 colors)
  • Display of current precise parameter value when clicking on rotary encoders
  • Global settings management with automatic/manual send to the Model D synth
  • Panel zoom with memory
  • v2.4 Automatic reading of wav files associated to a patch
  • v2.4 Manual/Automatic reading of any wav file

Moog Grandmother patch saver

Patch saver for the Moog Grandmother

v1.0 2019-02-10

The panel is only a patch loader/saver on computer as the Moog Grandmother does not support the load/save of programs by sysex dump exchange. It supports however the manipulation of some program parameters by Midi CC messages but far from all parameters are covered (only the ones described on page 43 of the Grandmother manual).

Features:

  • Moog Grandmother patch saver/loader for PC and Mac
  • Interface with same look as actual synthesizer
  • Bidirectional communication with actual Grandmother synthesizer for all parameters supporting CC# Midi communication (see p43 of the manual)
  • Top row of support “screens” with old look
  • Visual feedback by using “LED” ring buttons and indication of the parameter value
  • Envelope graph handled by mouse or classical ADSR rotary encoders
  • Load / Save programs from individual .syx files
  • Automatic change of all CC# parameters on actual synthesizer at program load
  • Easy program renaming
  • Display and export of program parameters as text file
  • Ability to describe 9 input/output colored patch cables with different sources/destinations
  • Programs have a name, author, save date and description. They can be associated to a category
  • Browser of the files on the disk
  • Patch sheet tab with patch sheet for Grandmother and other gear
  • Patch cables (9 colors)
  • Author and save date
  • External synths
  • Display of current precise parameter value when clicking on rotary encoders

Roland MKS-7 Editor

Download

I recently purchased a Roland MKS-7. Despite the fact that it is a Juno-106 and TR-707 in a box, it is not as popular as other modules. It’s simply because this is only a preset machine, you can only use the preset voices. You cannot edit the patch, nor can you save your own patches. Fortunately, MKS-7 can be programmed using Midi Sysex and get fully controlled.

I have searched the web, there is not a proper editor for this machine (well actually there is one kiwitechnics patcheditor which is a physical editor and it is expensive, or a Cubase device plugin). So, I went through the service manual and write my own editor. Thanks to Ctrlr, I made this one in only a couple of days. And now, I can edit the voice and save my own patches. This can be used as a VST plugin and all the parameters can be automated in DAW (I have tested it on Ableton and Cubase). Hope you will enjoy it.

 

MKS-7 is a multi-timbral machine with 4 midi channels and 7 voices (that’s why it is named MKS-7). Channel 1 is Melody section with 2 voices, Channel 2 is Bass section with 1 voice, Channel 3 is Chord section with 4 voices and Channel 10 is Rhythm section. Although you can change the channels of your own choice, every time you turn it off, the changes are gone.

There is a Whole Mode, which only applies to Chord section, can provide all the 6 voices at once (get the 2 extra voices from the Melody section), which essentially makes it a full fledged Juno-106.

This editor can only deal with 1 channel at a time, the Midi channel can be set in the MIDI drop down menu that comes with the Ctrlr. Simply set the output device channel to the corresponding ones on the MKS-7. Namely, channel 1 for Melody, 2 for Bass and 3 for Chord. The Whole Mode button can only operate on Chord section. Also, for Bass section only a few parameters can be changed (see the service manual for details).

You can select factory presets using the UP/Down buttons. However, the panel’s sliders or buttons will not be updated to reflect the actual parameters of the factory presets. This is because the MKS-7 is not sending any MIDI messages back to the editor (MKS-7 has no MIDI out at all). However, for USER patches, you can save the edited patch to hard disk and load it back with all the  parameters set correctly on the panel.

To setup Ctrlr VST in a DAW, you need to set the correct MIDI routing. See the following pics.
