    I use the excellent JX programmer by Dear Mr Mean to edit an MKS-70 (works a treat) The NKS has two “tones” per patch whcih you can select from the front panel of the unit. The PG-800 then edits the sellected tone (I have a PG as well – the ctrlr panel is way better!)

    JX-Programmer does not recognise that I have switched tones. I can only ever edit the tone it chose when I changed patches, and it’s not always the primary tone. This is because the JX8 doesn’t work this way, but the PG-800 does know I have switched tones (or the MKS only lets it edit the selected tone)

    Any chance we could have a “switch tone” button? Or if the panel could recognise that I have switched tones on the unit?

    Other than this, it is such a great panel. Thanks!

    Hi Quadraspleen,

    Nice to hear you like it!

    I’ve got a new version ready with some save sysex to disk functions.

    You can import your old sounds then!

    During the build I had a look @ the MKS 70 Manual and think it’s better/more easy to build

    a dedicated panel for the MKS 70.

     

    There are some nice extra features in the MKS 70 but I haven’t got a unit to test the panel.

    wow, that’d be amazing..if it could be based around the PG panel it’d be even better..I’d lend you my MKS if you lived nearby..I’d be happy to test all of the functions and report back if/when you get round to doing a panel for it..do you have the full sysex imp pages? I can scan and send if not

    Thanks again

    The midispec is in the manual so that’s no problem.

    The GUI is almost a one on one copy plus a few extra knobs/buttons.

    The biggest challenge is the sysexheader with the variable tone A/B byte.

    You want me to grab the output when I hit the change tone button? (if there is one – I’m not sure what it sends when I do that) I have MidiQuest too..I could see if that has the string..I know you can change tones with it, I wonder if it sends a command to edit the selected tone – thinking about it, it must..

    I’ll be back 🙂

    I’ll tell you what though..The MKS-70 is a bitch of a synth to work with..I have quite an old OS (1.03) which I need to upgrade..I think it fixes some MIDI/sysex stuff..Even getting it to play the selected patch in Midiquest is a krypton factor job

    Hmm…well, the swap tone button doesn’t send any sysex it seems. Thesysex needed to edit these tones is as follows..dunno if upon seeing one of these trings LUA could “swap” tone facia’s (I may be way off target here and this may be useless)

    change tone A:

    F0 41 36 00 24 30 01 26 08 F7

    change tone B:

    F0 41 36 00 24 30 01 1D 17 F7

    If these are no good, let me know what it is I can do to help 🙂

    EDIT: I’ve literally just used a command to move up one tone on both A and B. I guess one of those bytes is the tone (A or B) and one the actual tone number (I went from tone 6 to 7 on A and tone 23 to 24 on B if that[‘s any help)

    You can only select tones 1-100 over sysex for any given patch
