….. i will be starting with the xml this weekend.March 29, 2010 at 3:33 am #864
ok i have something ready, however its is not the sysex version.
There is a little midi box that i have called cox-electronics interpereter that takes basically CC and translates it to mks80 sysex. it also widens the range of parameters, mks80 range is usualy 0-100 and the interpeter makes that 1-127. Quite a usefull little box… ” title=”Wink” />
However its not tha common and has been discontinued.
i have prepared an excel file from the interpeter manual that i have sent you atom
the midi cc / parameter name / parameter range and another column for the sysex for mks80 which i will slowly fill.
perhaps as a prototype the interpeter version can be made and there can be a switch to choose between midi cc / sysex functionality….. just an idea.
for the interface i have sent you the cykong panel as a starting point. note the UPPER TONE /LOWER TONE
duplication of parameters. i quote the notes from cykong panel….
[quote:j2h9rzgg]Well, even heavier…
I only have an MKS-80 and not an MPG-80, so I’m quite glad I have done this (and it now equals 12u rackmount space of two MPG-80s!).
I suppose again, the ultimate show off – well, who said SX Device Panel cannot look good?
Here, I tried to make an SX Panel that re-creates the MPG-80 programmer for the Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter rackmount.
With a little time and care, it can look good. (To be honest, I don’t quite like boring Mixer Maps panels, sorry).
Anyway, like the MKS-70 JX panel, because the MKS-80 has Upper and Lower tone, I have placed 2 MPG-80 panels here.
Note that the Lower Patch: Key Mode, Split Point and Balance does the same thing as the one above.
Works on any of the 16 midi channels that is assigned in Cubase, the controls send SysEx messages.[/quote:j2h9rzgg]
bear in mind that perhaps you would like to save space and use again a switch for UpperTone/Lower Tone

additionally here is a standalone editor that i used to work with up to the point i got the cox interpeter…March 29, 2010 at 8:59 am #862
I guess making two editors in a TABbed fasion is no problem.May 22, 2010 at 10:07 am #866
Any progress with the MKS80 ctrl..?
I would love to see something as its an amazing machine….
PS i ve been a bit unlucky with my buys lately….
i got a TX7 and i would test the Tx7 ctrl …but it doesnt make any sound ” title=”Sad” />May 22, 2010 at 11:11 am #867
i did a mks70 and am working on a blofeld, will get to the MKS80 after that.

Really happy I found this program. You’re doing amazing work! I’ve been wishing for someone to do this for a long time. I don’t have any of the currently supported synths but I checked out one of the editors and the AU works fine in the latest Logic so I’m really excited about this stuff. The prefs seem well thought out, well done ” title=”Smile” />
It’s great you’re working on an MKS80 ” title=”Smile” />
Like the previous poster said, it would be *amazing* if you could make a version for the Interpreter as well. It’s simple MIDI CC’s for each parameter so it shouldn’t be too bad. The latest firmware has some extra params earlier versions didn’t have (there were some ‘Patch’ section that weren’t supported by the Interpreter at first. If you need this extra info let me know!
I made the mistake of buying the commercial plugin, it’s really not very good (in fact fairly useless).September 12, 2011 at 9:36 am #869sonofdirtParticipant

Hi just curious if you had any luck creating an MKS-80 device? thanksSeptember 12, 2011 at 9:57 am #870
No actualy i never did, but now with the info above you can do it yourself, back then i had to do it since there were no editing options, now it’s a completly new program so if you have the time try it.February 22, 2015 at 6:28 pm #38574sonofdirtParticipant

Hey do you guys have a copy of the Cox Interpreter manual or that spreadsheet that shows the midi CC to MKS-80 parameter mapping? I just scored an Interpreter on eBay! Thanks.
