This is a multi-part series tutorial on MIDI System Exclusive messages (SYSEX). Part 1 is about Hexadecimal, and how to calculate it – how it is used in MIDI messages. Explained in a simple way.
If you get a Dimension D chorus FX, of course 😉 That’s why we need something like the Boss MD-500!
An indepth look at how to create your very own custom sounds on the Novation Circuit using a free editor provided by Novation.
I’ve been using the C64 since way back in the early 80s. I can’t escape it – but the music has influenced me – and today I still find myself reaching for that Square Wave or using a stack of PWM!
In this vid – I’ve gone and recreated the famous Commando tune by Rob Hubbard (I’m not worthy!!!) – and I’ve decided to use a Roland A-01 Synthesizer. Why? Because it is actually an 8-Bit synth!
I wanted it to sound similar – but if I just used a SID – it would have ended up exactly the same 🙂
So if you’re interested go check out the vid – there’s a link in the video description to the full track over on my soundcloud page too 🙂
System Exclusive or SYSEX can be used on the JD-XI to access some well-needed performance controls. This video shows how to use SYSEX to create some cool custom MIDI mapping for your Roland A-500 Pro controller.
There’s also a cool intro to SYSEX section for begginers.
This video show the features of the Yamaha Reface CS with 10 free custom patches that I’ve made. You can get them here, all you need is the free Soundmondo app on your iPhone/iPad.
This is the last part (part 3) of the series of custom sound design using the JD-XI synth.
Using the JDXI Manager editor software, it opens up the menus to an easy-to-use sonic table where sound design is a synch!
This part (part 2 of 3 part series) covers the analog mono synth in the JD-XI.
Using the JD-XI Manager software, this video goes into sound designing customized drum sounds for the drum part on the JD-XI synthesizer.
Part 4 – Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF) Low-pass filter 4-pole – and also Modulation Generator (MG) or Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) and FX (Chorus).
