Yamaha TX7 v1.0 panel

Proud to present the next incarnation of the TX7 panel as a result of successful co-operation with forum member pascalc, who has done the Lua programming! Now you can load and save voice banks and individual voices from your computer or straight from the TX7 synthesizer.

Some notes on this panel.

  • make sure you have made the right MIDI IN and MIDI OUT connections before you start working with the panel. Both connections are required to interact with the synthesizer;
  • before you can send a bank or an individual voice to the TX7 you need to disable the memory protection on the device. You can achieve this by clicking on the button ‘disable memory protect’;
  • to change the name of a voice, double click on the name displayed in the LCD-screen (below right) of the panel;
  • if you like this panel so much you wonder how to express your gratitude, please donate to CTRLR.org so Roman Kubiak (aka atom) can finally buy a proper Macintosh computer ;-)!

This panel was developed using CTRLR version 5.3.122, build date June 17 2015, Juce 3.1.1, libusb 1.0.19

Yamaha TX7 (beta)

IMPORTANT!

On January 21, 2016 I have published a new version of this panel (and also another one compatible with a DX7), so you better download that one!

I will keep the Yamaha TX7 (beta) panel available for a while, until the new version works as expected. But then I will delete it.

———————————————————————————————————————————————–

This is a beta release of a patch editor for the Yamaha TX7 sound module, the companion of the Yamaha DX7.

Basically all parameters of a preset are present in this editor, but there are still a few midi capabilities of this device left that need to be implemented. A few remarks ( and probably I will forget some) on why this is a beta release still:

  • Saving of a preset not (yet) possible. I’m afraid presets need to be stored in (and loaded from) a separate file on the computer. Have to figure out how to do this in Lua (with somebodies help?);
  • When clicking for the second time on the “get perf.” button (with the same voice present) the values of the wheel -, foot -, aftertouch – and breath sensitivity change again, probably back to some default value. I don’t know why this happens;
  • Still unclear to me how to get the right on/off setting of the modulation section (wheel – , foot – , aftertouch – and breath control buttons) when they receive their assigned parameter value;
  • The layout of the panel needs some more work.

So please use this panel freely and send me your comments or Lua-scripts so I (or we…) can improve this panel!
