Emagic AMT8 standalone patch editor

17.2 KB

This panel was made to edit the 32 standalone patches of the Emagic AMT8 midi-interface. These patches are stored inside the unit and are active whenever the interface is not running off a computer.

The panel reflects the state of the selected preset, and features an “initialise” button as found in the original Sounddiver-based editor, routing all inputs to all outputs except its own’s.

The labels displaying the port names can be edited to reflect your setup, so that instead of in/out 1… in/out 8 you can make them display the names of the devices connected to those ports. Just double-click on the name label and name it as you wish.

Currently only the routing matrix is implemented – i still have to decode the filtering matrix messages, i will add those once i figure it out.


Select AMT0(all) as midi-output device, input can be any of the 8 ports but one has to be selected for the updating of the panel to work.

ps: I was not able to test this panel on the Unitor because i do not own one, but the messages should be the same as they share the same driver/editing software, so i am 99% sure it will work for that device aswell.

  1. Hi there!

    I own an Unitor 8 mk1 device. It was not used for the last 6 years. But now I have started to run a home studio and the Unitor is a very helpful device for patching and routing all the midi units. As you know Unitor drivers as well the Unitor Control software do not work in a Win 10 64bit environment.
    I’ve installed XP 32Bit on a VMware player. Drivers as well the Unitor Control software were installed. I’ve checked the USB to serial connection by doing loopbacks. Unitor drivers looks well installed, also the Win-XP registry entries looks fine, The problem was, that Unitor Control software dies while scanning for the Unitor. No idea, why the app hung!

    Your CTRL Panel for ATM8 seems to me an alternative to run the Unitor device from the XP-vm. I’ve configured the midi settings of the CTRL app (Midi IN = Unitor 01, Control = Unitor 01, Midi OUT = Unitor ALL).

    It seems that the CTRL panel has initialized the Unitor 8 according to your description. But setting on / of on the matrix panel has no effect. The LED indicating message traffic on the RS232 interface is working, but the active patch remains in the initial configuration.

    Any hint or advice to resolve the problem?

    thanks + cheers
