    is your midi interface an inexpensive 1×1 usb midi cable?

    many of those only transmit note on, prg change and CC but not
    sysex. just a hunch

    Nope, it’s a MOTU Ultralite. sysex works fine on my setup with Midiquest XL but it’s a pain to use.

    Edit: Thought I figured out but no, just managed to make ctrlr receive sysex data, still not able to send it.

    This has been an informative thread – this will help demystify why I was having little luck with getting my MKS80 to respond (didn’t know about the Roland checksum issue and the correct tokens to insert).

    I’m sorry, I forgot to mention that checksum. It also caused me quite a few headaches 🙂

    Opuswerk, are you still working on the panel?

    I recently added a D50 to my setup. I’d love to have an overview of the D50 parameters, especially for the envelopes it would make patching a lot more direct. I am only a user of CTRLR, such a great platform, lucky for me a lot of my needs were already developed (sammichsid and micron).

    Any ways, you have my full support and I’d love to see a result.

    Hello Husc,

    Unfortunately time has become very scarce, and I couldn’t find enough to get this Panel done. The D50 has about twice the amount of parameters the D20 has, and needs a very well thought out GUI, which I couldn’t figure out yet.

    If you’re interested in building a mockup, with no functions or sysex, I could maybe find the time to implement the functions for the panel.

    What is the policy within the CTRLR community about borrowing an existing UI? I like the way the original PG1000 editor is layed out and couldn’t that be used?

    There is already an editor online using that layout, but it’s not compatible with my system and I’d like to use CTRLR.

    Using the PG1000 layout would be an option, but it would involve a complex tabbing system, which if possible I would like to avoid.

    I’d much rather have 1 slider per function in the GUI if possible. As there’s 4 partials + the fx channels, that becomes quite a lot to cram in one interface. So i’d love to find a solution, but haven’t had time to sit and start drawing it properly.
    I just re-wired my whole studio, which led me to really wanting to have a better way to edit the D50. So I might get back at it, seeing I seem to have more free time.

    I will give it some thought, I’ll be back to you with a plan once I get a hang of the basics of CTRLR programming! 🙂
