DX-7Love: DX-7 MAX for Live controller – come get it!

HI Peeps!

DX-7Love: Sysex controller for the almighty DX-7 here:

http://www.maxforlive.com – View Device Details

To be able to send sysex ive implemented Katsuhiro Chiba’s Midi-Udp-Bridge http://www.audiooo.com/jp/download/midi-udp-bridge.zip

I tried to use the lh_midiout – but it gets greyed out – so I lost patience and just went with what worked for me.

So in order to make this work download the udp-midi-bridge open it and set it to the correct midiout port.

BEWARE: The DX-7 glitches when used together with ANY sysex controller. Therefore, it isnt possible to get any smooth parameter changes in use with this controller either.

For the same reason I havent put the controllers in order (yet) as in numbering and labeling them for automation use, as it doesnt really make sense to do that when the sound glitches and drops out all the time.

HOWEVER it is good enough for tweakin presets or just plain old fikn around experimenting with that lovely FM sound

I will update this thing a bit futher in the near future on the ui side of things.

Very cool! Makes me wish I had a DX7. I had the idea awhile back to model a Max/MSP FM synth after a DX7 sysex controller but it would be pretty tedious to setup 6 FM operators and all pertinent connections.

Awesome! Would I be able to use this on my TX81Z with or without the need to dive into the patching?

hi Samelot
you would have to rearrange the patch inside – no doubt, because of the differences between the two synths – but why dont you just use this instead? ;) https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/classic-synths/

Wow, i didn’t know about this. Just got it and began playing around with it. It’s perfect, thanks!
