    After a lot of work, the GrooveBox Editor is ready. It’s compatible with Roland MC-505, Roland JX-305 and Roland D2 synthesizers.

    It’s fully multitimbral, and it manages all parameters of the synth (7 parts + Rhythm part, Part Settings, Effects settings and System settings).

    It’s in beta stage, so there could be bugs. Please let me know if you find anything wrong.

    The Editor uses a new approach that allows to manage all parameters (up to 7675 parameters!) with less than 1000 modulators, with a heavy use of memoryBlocks to manage data from different parts, making the editor very lightweight.

    You can download the Editor here

    Looks great. It’s a pity that you don’t let other people look into your code but this is your decision and I can somewhat understand. E.g. when someone would copy code and then tries to make money with his panel.

    This is very impressive, I shared it with the Facebook MC-303/505/808/909 group and there was a lot of interest.

    Currently of the JV-based grooveboxes I only still have the MC-307, can I expect it to be fully/mostly compatible?

    I still use a MC-909 daily, of course using it with my modern DAW is rather crude and manual of a process. If a version of Groovebox Editor for the 808/909 models existed, that would be the ideal way for me to work with my DAW and the 909 (I could look at / physically operate either one depending on the task) – Roland’s own editor doesn’t run on modern (Intel Mac / Wintel after XP) computers, I wonder if it possibly could be not painstakingly difficult to modify your Groovebox Editor to be able to do its same functions for the MC-808/909 by changing the MIDI CC/SYSEX #s per the MIDI Implementation?

    Hi Dave, thanks for your words.

    It should be fully compatible with the MC307 as they share the same engine architecture, but as I don’t own one I can’t test it.

    Unfortunately, it’s far from being easy to adapt the editor to work with the 909, it’s not just a matter of changing the MIDI messages. Also I would need the machine to test it.
