TX7 image 6

Posted by & filed under Panels.

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

    Heya! Love this panel (guess i will hit the donate button soon…) … BUT i have problems loading banks (both from file and from my TX7), getting a “Callback error” all the time.

    Any suggestions where to start looking for the problem?

    Ok … works now without any problems. I guess it wasn’t such a good idea to have MIDI IN and MIDI OUT running through different interfaces. Check! Love you guys for making this! 🙂

    This doesn’t seem to want to work for my TX7, but Cntrlr seems to work fine for my other synths, including my TX81z and TG77. Any ideas what could be making my TX7 not want to listen to Cntrlr?

    No idea why it doesn’t work for you. Please provide more information, like error messages, the way you have connected the TX7 etc. (If you’re on a PC I’m afraid I can’t help you out, because I’m on a Mac, but you can try anyway ;-))

    Win7 64bit – TX7 Software Version-1.2

    I’m having few problem getting this to work so just wanted to check a few basics. There has been some discussion of the correct midi implementation, I would assume that the midi out of the laptop goes to the midi in of the TX7 and the midi in of the laptop goes to the midi out of the TX7. Then configure that way in CTRLR. The “controller” is actually a keyboard for playing the notes? Is that right? everthing needs to be set to channel one for some reason? I can’t load any sound banks (ones i’ve downloaded) and therefore I can’t save any either, is there a way to create your own? IT would be good to back up the current banks at least. The parameters do seem to work in the panel and i can get load the patch from the TX7 but I cant send patches or load anything from/to files. There is an option to buy software 1.4 on ebay, wondering if that might help?

    Hi runningonair,
    I think you have set the input/output requirements OK. Indeed the controller setting AFAIK is for playing notes. Question: when you select load bank ‘from file’ does it open a window so you can browse to the directory where your bank files are stored? BTW: I’m on a Mac, so maybe things work differently in Windows.
