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.

Plain editor panel for Roland MKS-50

If you have an Roland MKS-50 like I do, you may want to stop dive in menus. There is a dedicated editor for it, but I just can not get that to work with Windows10. So I just found CTRLR and made a panel today.

I assume it could be done a whole lot better cause I found no good tutorials and made this one basicly by trial and error and reverse engineering of other panels. It would be cool to make features to load in patches from the MKS and also a funktion to save sounds straight into it. If somebody wants to help out doing that just take my panel and make a new version.

 

Just after I was almost done with with my panel I also found one in the deprecated. But since I made mine a bit different I decided to upload it anyway.

VR-09 Combo editor

This is a control panel for the Roland VR09-Combo keyboard, similar to the proprietary iPad-only app.

It is still a work in progress most of the functionalities are there. It’s my first panel; constructive criticism is welcome. Supports bidirectional editing of synth and organ tones and control of the built-in effects.

Still To Do: changing name of a sound (new name gets uploaded to the synth but it is not shown on the display); load/save sounds to file (has anybody any info on the file formats .UPG and .DAT used by Roland?); some synth tones are not editable (but same goes with the iPad app).

It is released under GPLv3.

MKS-70/JX-10 with OS4.x upgrade

This is a panel for the SuperJX-OS4.x upgraded Roland MKS-70/JX-10.

Please note: This will NOT work at all with standard Roland firmware equipped machines. It is not compatible with SuperJX OS v3.x too. So make sure you are using SuperJX OS v4.x before you try this panel. If you don’t know what the SuperJX OS v4.x is all about – look here: http://www.vecoven.com/superjx/superjx.html.

This is the new XXL-Version. It is suited for screens with a minimum resolution of 1920×1200. Ctrlr features a zoom function, so the panel can be used with smaller resolutions.
It can load JX-8P banks/patches and SuperJX banks prior to v4.x.

This panel has to be requested. Write an email to roet32@gmail.com. Give a short explanation why you want this panel.

I developed this panel using Ctrlr build v5.4.11.
Newest Windows build is recommended. Mac users may get the latest Mac build.

This is a collection of all the JX-8P, JX-10/MKS-70 patches I found:
JX Patches

I haven’t updated the tutorial for a long time (version 2.1) but it may still be helpful. As long as I get zero feedback there is probably no need for an updated tut:
