    Hi, great – and thanks that you are providing CTRLR for mac too!

    Hi atom, the problem is that my logic express 9 does not accept the exported instance of the JX-8P Programmer (I used the new 2.2 panel version with the right nightly build). I get an error message when logic starts that the plug-in check failed… I need the instance however so that logic can detect the parameters…

    Thanks for all your efforts! Someday this WILL work for me.

    Hi, ok – I will try again. I have a midi keyboard with knobs that send CC messages to my computer. I use ctrlr in standalone mode.  I want to control the sliders of the ctrlr JX-8P Panel with these knobs. Or put differently: I want to use CTRLR as a CC to SYSEX interface!  I want to control my JX-8P with my midi keyboard. Isn’t that one of the main purposes of CTRLR?

    So: Midi Keyboard > CTRLR/Panel > Roland JX-8P Synth

    Thanks!

    Hi, a question regarding controller devices and “Midi learn”. Is it possible right now to assign a CC control message to a slider to control it with a midi controller?  In “panel mode” in the midi menu I can actually change from “sysex” to “CC”, then I enter a controller number and it works, but this is of course at the same time the main transfer channel from the panel to the synth (JX8P). So when I do this the slider stops transmitting to the synth – Is it possible to assign sysex AND CC to the same slider? Thanks!

    Bye

    Hi,

    regarding the small labels – I’m running Logic Express 9 on an Intel iMac OS X 10.6.4

    I’m not a programmer, so don’t ask me about the "language" I’m using <img loading=” title=”Wink” />

    Thanks for looking into this issue

    Bye.

    Hi,

    here is the screenshot with the small "labels" in the "edit window". It’s the same for the midi setup page. By the way, in my case the automation labels are correct.

    Hi, just a quick reply – I managed to save the JX-8Programmer as an AU component file – As you already noticed I had to erase the original Ctrlr component so that Logic could load the new plug-in. It actually worked then – The difference I see so far is that logic now shows the parameters of the panel in automation mode – I also successfuly automated parameters manually – Logic however still doesn’t "see" the parameters when I want to link them with my CC Controller.

    There seems to be a small bug with the labels that are now super small and practically unreadable. That’s why I actually couldn’t enter CC values manually in edit mode. I would actually like to try that out.

    The automation is already a great new feature for me – thanks! If I someday get this CC Controller working with my JX-8P I’m the luckiest man <img loading=” title=”Wink” />

    Bye

    Thanks, I’ll try it and will report whether it works.

    Hi,

    great new feature. I’ve also been waiting for this – but I don’t get it <img loading=” title=”Wink” /> How can I create an AU-Plugin from a panel? I downloaded the last nightly release and "save as" binary, but what can I do with the bpanel file? Did I miss another "save" option? I would need the jx-8Programmer as an AU-Plugin. Is that already possible? Thanks! Bye.

    Hi, this sounds like the answer to my problem. I’ll visit your site again. Thanks again for working on such a creative solution for control surfaces. It’s really a great thing. And although I’m (obviously) not a programmer I really find the way CTRLR works (also the edit mode) very intuitive. Bye!

    Hi, thanks again. Ok, it’s clear that the host is actually assigning the midi CC although there is a "midi learn" function in some au instruments. Unfortunately, the "learn mode" in logic does not recognize the panel parameters. When in learn mode, logic should recognize a parameter when I move a slider/knob (CTRLR panel) and then I can assign the midi controller (as described in the post you forwarded me to). It works with my other au instruments… So, maybe it is logic 9 that is somehow not able to fully integrate CTRLR… When I find a solution for logic I’ll post it here. Thanks for answering so quickly. Bye!

    Hi Chris,

    that’s exactly what I would like to do. Thanks <img loading=” title=”Smile” /> Of course, I activated the correct midi Input (my midi keyboard) and the midi output (to the JX8P) in the CTRLR Midi Settings. Additionally, I selected these midi inputs/outputs in the general panel edit window (JX8Programmer panel). In the edit window for specific sliders I found the option "Midi Controller number". I entered the number of one of the available midi controllers on my keyboard for one slider to test it. The result of this setup: CTRLR (respectively the "panel") correctly sends sysex to the jx8P. When I manually control the sliders it works. But to control the slider with my midi keyboard does not work. Furthermore, the JX8P only receives midi notes (played on the keyboard) when I choose the options "MIDI thru Device>Device" + "Channelize messages from device". But this setup seems to connect my keyboard directly to the jx8P regardless of which midi tracks are activated in logic. Sorry for writing so much. It seems like a simple thing to do… It seems that the panel is somehow not responding to midi… That’s what I wanted to say.

    I’ll play around with CTRLR a bit, but I would be thankful for any advice.

    Bye.
