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.

JUNO ALPHA Editor

5/16/2021
In versions below 0.97.1 the panel crashes when user changes any TONE MODIFY button is pressed on the Juno itself. 

3/19/2021
In versions 0.45 and below, reloading of values from saved single files and dumps; DCO_ENV_MODE in bulk dumps was incorrect. It seems one of the dummy bytes in the 32 byte message is sometimes/always set to 01. I mistakenly presumed it would be set to 00.Please download the latest version version 0.97.1, which addresses these issues.

If there are no images visible, or previous version images are showing after installing a new version of this program:
  •  MacOS ※ — delete folder Library/Preferences/Juno Alpha/ and restart program.
  • WINDOWS ※ — delete folder C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Juno Alpha and restart program. @RD /S /Q “C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Juno Alpha”

FEATURES

  • Download BULK DUMP from Juno to panel.
  • Upload BULK DUMP to Juno.
  • Save BULK DUMP to disk from panel.
  • Load BULK DUMP sysex files from Disk to panel.
  • Load/save single patch files and send to Juno
  • cc ⇒ SYSEX mapping (Use MIDI controller to change values on panel/JUNO)‡
  • VST indexing for automation of most JUNO parameters including MODULATION and PITCH BENDER
  • Visual representation of EG Envelope.
  • Change basic panel button colours, background etc.

CC ⇒ SYSEX Mapping ‡

  1. Ctrlr – Connect your MIDI->Input/Output to the same in/out as on the JUNO.
  2. Ctrlr – Connect MIDI->Controller MIDI to your MIDI Controller keyboard.
  3. On your MIDI Controller keyboard assign a slider/knob to a cc # 0-127
  4. In the Admin area of the panel, switch on cc mapping
  5. Select which control on the panel you want to associate with the CC# you assigned on your hardware controller!

BULK DUMP/LOAD PROCEDURE

1) Connect MIDI OUT and MIDI IN cables between the Alpha Juno and the computer

2) Set the MEMORY PROTECT SWITCH on the back of the keyboard to the OFF position

3) Press [ MIDI ] and the display will read MIDI CH = #

4) Turn the Alpha-Dial until all of the settings look like this:

       MIDI CHANNEL= 1
       MIDI OMNI   = OFF
       MIDI LOCAL  = ON
       MIDI AFTER  = ON
       MIDI BENDER = ON
       MIDI EXCL   = ON
       MIDI HOLD   = ON
       MIDI PROG C = ON
       MIDI VOLUME = ON
       MIDI PORTA  = ON

5) The BULK DUMP data transfer methods used are different from the
   instructions listed in the Alpha Juno-1/2 Owner's Manual.

   You must press the WRITE key at the same time as the DATA TRANSFER and
   BULK DUMP keys are pressed.  

6) The method for BULK LOAD data transfer used in this
   manner should read in the Alpha Juno-1/2 display window as;
   Bulk Load MIDI.o                       <==== Correct
   as opposed to the normal display of:
   Bulk Load MIDI..                       <==== Incorrect

  * The easiest way is to use these three keys at the same time
  * is to first press the DATA TRANSFER key and then, while still pressing
  * DATA TRANSFER, press the WRITE key and while still pressing these two
  * keys, press the BULK DUMP key or BULK LOAD key.
Running as VST under Cubase
  1. In Cubase, Disable †Midi-in **Midi-out ports to the Synthesizer (Juno Alpha).
  2. Open the Juno Alpha VST in an instrument track IN=(All Midi Inputs)
  3. Create Midi track IN=(All Midi Inputs) OUT=(Synthesizer Midi-in) (I record midi notes & data to this track).
  4. In the VST Ctrlr panel connect to the †Midi-in and **Midi-out ~ connected to Synth (you disabled them in Cubase ( See step #1)).
  5. I found the only Midi-thru setting that needs to be checked was
    MIDI→Midi Thru→”Plugin-host->Output Device”
    (The 5th option down in the fold out menu)
  6. Engage Monitor on Both tracks.
Running as VST under Reaper

(This is the Juno’s audio output)

  1. Insert – Track
  2. Record Arm
  3. Monitor Input (right-click record button)
  4. Track Input:Stereo Input

(Ctrlr VST settings)

  1. Insert – Virtual Instrument on New Track – Panel
  2. Routing – MIDI Hardware Output –  Synthesizer (Juno)
  3. Ctrlr MIDI – MIDI Thru – Deselect “Input Device -> Output Device”
  4. Ctrlr MIDI – MIDI Thru – Select “Plugin Host -> Output Device”
  5. Ctrlr MIDI – “Input from host to comparator”
  6. Ctrlr MIDI – “Output to Plugin Host”
  7. SYNC with  Synthesizer (Juno)

Radio Button Code Generator

This panel is for developers wishing to add radio buttons using png images to a panel. uiComponent and mouse detection functions are generated to console for cutting and pasting into a project.
First initialise images (and text) Click on areas [1] [2] [3]
Images must be loaded as resources.


 If you use custom fonts, another user may not have the same fonts on their system.
	On Windows 10 any fonts installed in c:\WINDOWS\Fonts should load, but custom fonts seem not to.
	You can include the font as a resource in a panel you release, but I am not sure if that works on 
	every platform.
(1) First import image/font resources into this panel.
(2) Import one image for 'off state' and a separate image for 'on state' with same dimensions.
(3) Generate code by clicking on "print code to console"
(Open the `console` window first and clear any previous messages)

In your panel:

(A) Create a  uiComponent** add a function with any name to 'Paint callback' field e.g.myPaintCallback"

(B) Create a mouseDown function in the uiComponent** in  'Mouse down callback' 

(C) Create a mouseMove function in the uiComponent** in  'Mouse move callback' 

(D) In 'Resources' add 2 png images of the same size, one for "off state" and one for "on state"
	*Load the exact same images (and custom fonts) used in this program.

Creating Radio Buttons separate to this program

Radio Buttons can also be created using code such as below, where the lua table t{} contains the names of the buttons in the radio group
ProgramSelect = function(--[[ CtrlrModulator --]] mod --[[ number --]], value --[[ number --]], source)
    if source == 4 then
        local sName = L(mod:getName())
        local t = {"PROGRAM01", "PROGRAM02", "PROGRAM03", "PROGRAM04"} -- local table of 4 radio buttons
        for i, v in pairs(t) do
            if sName == v then
                local sysMess = string.format("F0 00 00 23 01 43 C1 00 %.2X F7", i - 1)
                panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage(sysMess))
            else
                _G[v]:setValue(0, true) 
               -- don't use panel:getComponent(v) // use panel:getModulatorByName(v)
            end
        end
    end
end -- source == 4 (user clicked on a button - not lua generated - that would be 5 or 6) end

--[[ 
*NOTE: Where PROGRAM01 etc are initialised in an init script
"Called when the panel has finished loading"
PROGRAM01=panel:getModulatorByName("PROGRAM01")
PROGRAM02=panel:getModulatorByName("PROGRAM02")
PROGRAM03=panel:getModulatorByName("PROGRAM03")
PROGRAM04=panel:getModulatorByName("PROGRAM04")
--]]

Behringer Odyssey patch saver

Patch saver for the Behringer Odyssey

v1.1 2020-10-03

This panel is only a patch loader/saver on computer as the Behringer Odyssey 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 Odyssey synth.

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

Features:

  • Behringer Odyssey patch saver/loader for PC and Mac
  • Interface with same look as actual synthesizer
  • Top row of support “screens” with old look
  • Simple sliders or sliders with white or color LEDs (v1.1)
  • Ability to view and select any effect and adjust its 3 parameters according to the actual synth
  • Envelopes graphs handled by mouse or the AR/ADSR sliders
  • 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
  • Ability to describe the usage of each program in a step by step mode (up to 15 steps)
  • Browser of the files on the disk
  • Patch sheet tab with patch sheet for Odyssey and other gear (external synths/sequencer/FX chain)
  • Patch cables (9 colors)
  • Display of current precise parameter value when moving sliders
  • Program settings management with automatic/manual send to the Odyssey synth
  • Global settings management with automatic send to the Odyssey synth (as Behringer Synthtool)
  • Panel zoom with memory
  • Automatic reading of wav files associated to a patch
  • Manual/Automatic reading of any wav file
  • Standalone versions for PC and Mac
  • VST versions for PC (32 and 64 bits)
  • VST and AU versions for Mac
  • All buttons associated to a Midi CC controller number so you can adjust them from a hardware controller (still no impact on the synth of course and unfortunately)

The manual can be downloaded from the Sunny Synths’ drive or website www.sunnysynths.com
