Mixer Panel for the Roland JUPITER-X/m

This panel exposes the controls for effects and routing, as found on the Sound Engine Routing Details diagram at the end of the Reference Manual (p. 49 in JUPITER-Xm_reference_eng04_W.pdf). The goal is to provide easy and intuitive access to a number of parameters that are scattered across 10 different submenus on the Jupiter-X/m. Changes made to the panel on the computer are immediately passed to the hardware, and vice versa.

I made this panel to satisfy my own needs, but I hope it is useful to to you too — ConditionalInstability (C-I)

PANEL DESCRIPTION

The panel roughly follows the layout of a small mixing console.

  • On the left are 5 channels corresponding to each of the 5 Parts on the synthesizer, with a channel Eq and four Scene Effect sends (always post-fader).
  • In the center above is a tabbed interface to access the individual parameters of the Scene Effects. Note that both the panel and the hardware store parameter values for all effects, but the MIDI SysEx implementation only communicates the parameters of the currently active chorus, delay and reverb.
  • In the center below are the Scene Effect returns, with the available options to send from one effect to another.
  • On the right are the Master Eq and Compressor, which are stored as System parameters on the hardware.
  • The small section labeled Panel has selector to change the zoom level of the interface (this can also be adjusted from the Ctrlr View menu). There is also a button to Get Data from the Jupiter-X/m. The panel will automatically load data at startup and when the scene or scene effect type changes, but if the panel ever gets out of sync with the hardware, this button can be useful.
  • NEW in v1.2 – factory presets for the SRV-2000 reverb. Includes the 80’s classic gated reverb for the SRV-2000NL nonlinear mode!

LIMITATIONS

  • The panel only reads and writes the parameter values that are currently loaded on the Jupiter-X/m. No data is stored permamently, unless you save the Scene and System from the Write menu on the hardware.
  • On the hardware, it is possible to override the Tone Multi-effect with a Scene Multi-effect and the Scene effects with System effects. These options are not implemented in the panel.
  • Microphone input settings and effects are not implemented.
  • There is one parameter in one of the scene effects which is not updated on the panel when its value is changed on the hardware, due to a bug in the Roland MIDI implementation. Can you find which one?

GETTING STARTED

  1. Download Ctrlr from ctrlr.org and install. The recommended versions are 5.3.201 for Windows or Linux, and 5.3.198 for MacOS.
  2. Download the Jupiter-X/m Mixer panel from the link below.
  3. Start the standalone version of Ctrlr. The Jupiter-X/m Mixer panel has not been tested in VST mode.
  4. Start the mixer panel from the Open Panel option in the File menu.
  5. From the MIDI menu, select your Jupiter as Input and Output.
  6. Choose a new scene on your Jupiter-X/m and see the panel update. Often only a small subset of the parameters will change — it seems that the scene creators sometimes don’t find all these options!

JUNO ALPHA Editor

5/16/2021
In versions below 0.97.1 the panel crashes when user changes any TONE MODIFY button is pressed on the Juno itself. 

3/19/2021
In versions 0.45 and below, reloading of values from saved single files and dumps; DCO_ENV_MODE in bulk dumps was incorrect. It seems one of the dummy bytes in the 32 byte message is sometimes/always set to 01. I mistakenly presumed it would be set to 00.Please download the latest version version 0.97.1, which addresses these issues.

If there are no images visible, or previous version images are showing after installing a new version of this program:
  •  MacOS ※ — delete folder Library/Preferences/Juno Alpha/ and restart program.
  • WINDOWS ※ — delete folder C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Juno Alpha and restart program. @RD /S /Q “C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Juno Alpha”
  • When saving custom cc ⇒ sysex mapping to file under Linux and MacOS be sure to add extension .JUMP to end of filename.
  • Workaround/Bug Fix :: To build as standalone executable on Windows or export as VST, please add 24 pixels to the panel height before exporting.. (otherwise you will find the bottom 24 pixels have been truncated).
To create a VST or AU file:
  • Load the Ctrlr.dll (Ctrlr VST/AU) into your DAW
  • Load this panel into Ctrlr VST/AU instance.
  • Then go to File -> Export -> Export Restricted Instance. This will build a VST dll or AU (.component) file.
  • You can now load this panel independently of Ctrlr.
  • Or download pre built files from Download Juno Alpha Editor
Running as VST under Cubase
  1. In Cubase, Disable †Midi-in **Midi-out ports to the “Juno Synth”.
  2. Open Juno Alpha VST in an instrument track IN=(All Midi Inputs)
  3. Create Midi track IN=(All Midi Inputs) OUT=(“Juno Synth” Midi-in) (I record midi notes & data to this track).
  4. In the VST Ctrlr panel connect to the †Midi-in and **Midi-out ~ connected to “Juno Synth” (you disabled them in Cubase ( See step #1)).
  5. I found the only Midi-thru setting that needs to be checked was MIDI→Midi Thru→”Plugin-host->Output Device” (The 5th option down in the fold out menu)
  6. Engage Monitor on Both tracks.
Running as VST under Reaper
This is the “Juno Synth’s” audio output)
  1. Insert – Track
  2. Record Arm
  3. Monitor Input (right-click record button)
  4. Track Input:Stereo Input
(Ctrlr VST settings)
  1. Insert – Virtual Instrument on New Track – Panel

  3. Ctrlr MIDI – MIDI Thru – Deselect “Input Device -> Output Device”
  4. Ctrlr MIDI – MIDI Thru – Select “Plugin Host -> Output Device”
  5. Ctrlr MIDI – “Input from host to comparator”
  6. Ctrlr MIDI – “Output to Plugin Host”
And make sure in your Preferences, Audio – MIDI Devices, you have it set so that your MIDI Device which connects to the “Juno Synth” is enabled for input, output, and control messages (right-click).

FEATURES

  • Download BULK DUMP from Juno to panel.
  • Upload BULK DUMP to Juno.
  • Save BULK DUMP to disk from panel.
  • Load BULK DUMP sysex files from Disk to panel.
  • Load/save single patch files and send to Juno
  • cc ⇒ SYSEX mapping (Use MIDI controller to change values on panel/JUNO)‡
  • VST indexing for automation of most JUNO parameters including MODULATION and PITCH BENDER
  • Visual representation of EG Envelope.
  • Change basic panel button colours, background etc.

CC ⇒ SYSEX Mapping ‡

  1. Ctrlr – Connect your MIDI->Input/Output to the same in/out as on the JUNO.
  2. Ctrlr – Connect MIDI->Controller MIDI to your MIDI Controller keyboard.
  3. On your MIDI Controller keyboard assign a slider/knob to a cc # 0-127
  4. In the Admin area of the panel, switch on cc mapping
  5. Select which control on the panel you want to associate with the CC# you assigned on your hardware controller!

BULK DUMP/LOAD PROCEDURE

1) Connect MIDI OUT and MIDI IN cables between the Alpha Juno and the computer

2) Set the MEMORY PROTECT SWITCH on the back of the keyboard to the OFF position

3) Press [ MIDI ] and the display will read MIDI CH = #

4) Turn the Alpha-Dial until all of the settings look like this:

       MIDI CHANNEL= 1
       MIDI OMNI   = OFF
       MIDI LOCAL  = ON
       MIDI AFTER  = ON
       MIDI BENDER = ON
       MIDI EXCL   = ON
       MIDI HOLD   = ON
       MIDI PROG C = ON
       MIDI VOLUME = ON
       MIDI PORTA  = ON

5) The BULK DUMP data transfer methods used are different from the
   instructions listed in the Alpha Juno-1/2 Owner's Manual.

   You must press the WRITE key at the same time as the DATA TRANSFER and
   BULK DUMP keys are pressed.  

6) The method for BULK LOAD data transfer used in this
   manner should read in the Alpha Juno-1/2 display window as;
   Bulk Load MIDI.o                       <==== Correct
   as opposed to the normal display of:
   Bulk Load MIDI..                       <==== Incorrect

  * The easiest way is to use these three keys at the same time
  * is to first press the DATA TRANSFER key and then, while still pressing
  * DATA TRANSFER, press the WRITE key and while still pressing these two
  * keys, press the BULK DUMP key or BULK LOAD key.
Running as VST under Cubase
  1. In Cubase, Disable †Midi-in **Midi-out ports to the Synthesizer (Juno Alpha).
  2. Open the Juno Alpha VST in an instrument track IN=(All Midi Inputs)
  3. Create Midi track IN=(All Midi Inputs) OUT=(Synthesizer Midi-in) (I record midi notes & data to this track).
  4. In the VST Ctrlr panel connect to the †Midi-in and **Midi-out ~ connected to Synth (you disabled them in Cubase ( See step #1)).
  5. I found the only Midi-thru setting that needs to be checked was
    MIDI→Midi Thru→”Plugin-host->Output Device”
    (The 5th option down in the fold out menu)
  6. Engage Monitor on Both tracks.
Running as VST under Reaper

(This is the Juno’s audio output)

  1. Insert – Track
  2. Record Arm
  3. Monitor Input (right-click record button)
  4. Track Input:Stereo Input

Roland VR700 V-Combo EDITOR v1.02 (Windows, MacOSX, Linux)

Panel EDITOR for Roland VR700 V-Combo stage organs

06/2021: Announcement: v.1.01.3 is in preparation with bugfixes, adjustments and new features (reworked V-SYNTH with 80 ‘identified’ MFX, songbook integration, ex/import of syx-files, reworked coupling of VR-Favorite<>Editor-registrations, integrated help menus, …). Release date: mid 2021.

03/2019:  v1.01(2)   MINOR BUGFIX VERSION  :  see DOWNLOAD section 

INTRO: 

VR700 V-COMBO EDITOR is an application running on MS Windows (XP – 10),  OSX and Linux to control the Roland VR700 in studio or on stage (it has no proper sounds – it’s just a controller-editor!). Besides a comfortable user interface, it extends the sound capabilities of the VR (integration of parameters like envelope/filter, access to ‘hidden features’ of the VR700 etc), adds its own registration, integrates/modifies VR hardware controls etc.

VR700 EDITOR @ CTRLR is fully reactive to touch displays (for usage live on stage)

EDITOR features:

  • Direct access to VR700 sounds and parameters instead of painful menu diving in the WDOAT (worst display of all times)
  • Hammond style organ with 2 (touch-reactive) drawbar sets and (customizable) presets
  • Organ preset switching in Hammond-style (‘black keys’) using low left hand VR-keys
  • Additional effects for ensemble sounds (filter, ADR envelope, vibrato, special FX …)
  • Free choice of the per-sound MFX-EFFECT + controls of MFX parameters (equal to VR760)
  • Extended rhythm control (change of drum kit and drum sound manipulation)
  • EDITOR registration (independent from VR favorites) : 2048 registrations, custom naming, saving of additional EFX (like envelope, filter, extended rhythm control, vibrato, etc)
  • EDITOR single sound registration : fast ‘workflow’ register to ‘backup’ single ensemble sounds (e.g. your modified pianos, enhanced strings etc)
  • Coupling between VR-Favorits and EDITOR-registrations:
    • VR-Favorites can be switched by the EDITOR user interface
    • EDITOR registrations can be switched with the VR700-Favorite buttons and/or footswitch
    • EDITOR registrations and VR-Favorites can be switched with an external program/controller
  • Footswitch configurator (for stage use – no menu diving …)
  • Synthesizer work mode : organ drawbars and GAIN+REVERB knob act as ADR envelope and filter faders.
  • enhanced EQUALIZER
  • UPG file editor for reordering the favorites in Favorite backup (“UPG”) files
  • Built in sequencer (Win only) and external program launcher
  • Compatible to VR700 keyboard firmware v.1.01
  • Recommended software: Windows + CTRLR v5.4.29 (no newer!), OSX + CTRLR v53.198, Linux: (?)

This is the continued development of Mauros initial VR-Combo panel (mille grazie Mauro!) . There will be regular feature and bugfix updates . Check this site from time to time.

Bugreports and ideas/wishes/change requests etc are highly appreciated. Please use the youtube vids for communication. Eventually use the VR09/730 facebook group or EDITOR youtube channel for requests.

INSTALLATION instructions:  download V-COMBO EDITOR MANUAL

!! WARNING !! BEFORE LOADING A NEW PANEL INTO CTRLR, CLOSE THE OLD ONE(S).   Otherwise you a) risk to block the midi ports (MS Windows) and b) suffer from a bulk popup of +100 ‘info’ and file browser windows: if this happens, wait until it stops, close all popups, then close all panel instances in CTRLR (it’s a CTRLR bug with yet no solution)
