PCM-80 Editor / Librarian

OK, a Christmas Present for you all!

After about 5 months work (I never want to do this again, well thats the way I feel at the moment) I’m releasing Version 1 of my Lexicon PCM80 Editor to the wider community.

It’s been tested with a SIMM Expanded PCM80 running v1.1 Firmware.

It is by no means perfect or indeed finished but it is basically functional and mostly bug free 🙂

Known Issues:

1 It only works with the 10 Algorithms that are built into the PCM80, it does not at present work with any of the Expansion Card Algorithms.

2 The Master Controls for ‘Levels’, ‘Feedback’, ‘Panning’, etc… will offset the corresponding values for the individual voices. This is normal PCM80 behaviour but the panel will indicate the incorrect value. This does NOT stop the Editor from working and all Parameter Values are still stored correctly and can be saved and recalled, it’s just the Panel Display will be incorrect.

3 The Bank Change always resets the Program to 0.0, even though the Panel may indicate something different.

4 The ‘Tempo’ Mode Buttons on the Panel do NOT change the Mode on the PCM80, you will still need to simultaneously Press ‘Up’ + ‘Tempo on the Hardware.

Give it a go and let me know if find anything else, I’m sure you will.

Lexicon PCM70 Editor & Librarian, currently at v1.2

This Editor / Librarian has been built & tested on a PCM70 running on Firmware 3.01

I doubt it will work on Firmware v2 but you are welcome to try.

  • Edit all Patches / Modulation
  • Save your Patches to Disk, then Load them again later
  • Write the v2 Presets to the REG Memories of your v3 PCM70 for the best of both worlds

Yamaha DX11 Editor

Now Version 4.1 of the Yamaha DX11 Editor with File Browser & Librarian. Built and tested in Ctrlr v5.3.201

The DX11 is very similar in hardware and SysEx to the TX81Z but different enough to warrant it’s own dedicated Editor. The DX11 has in addition to the TZ81Z, an Aftertouch Keyboard, a Pitch Envelope, more Performance Memories, and possibly other minor differences?

Features Added in V3:

  • Performance Editing Tab now added with ability to Sync Internal Patch Names
  • Bank and Preset Selection added
  • Mode Switching now linked to Tab Switching
  • System Tab Added
  • Effects Tab Added
  • Micro Tuning Tab Added
  • Program Change Table Added

New in v4.1:

  • File Browser Added with ability to Save & Load Single Patches in SysEx form
  • Ability to load typical TX81Z 32 Patch Banks found on the Internet

Bugs Fixed in v4.1:

  • Probably lots, I can’t remember now
  • Many LUA Script optimisations
  • If you find anymore please let me know in the comments below and I’ll get on it.
