MIDI Interfaces / Motu Unisyn

Hello everybody, glad to be here!

I just bought an Alesis QS7 looking for piano and clavi sounds. I found some patches in Unisyn Format, and then Version 2.1 online. BUT it wants a serial number? I tried serial Box, but the Version there is 2.1 and it does not work. Any ideas? I just want to upload these patches into the synth.

I see. Yes, Proteum. That brings back memories. Have not used in some time but I think I will fire up on my older machine.

I've been keeping an eye on it (updated version). The code and binaries are too new, for the O.S. I'm running the E-mu(s) with. But the new features are likely going to encourage me to try it out, sooner or later.

However, I'm glad you mentioned it. Most people are likely using newer systems.

There is also Proteum -> It is also a bit older, and very similar to Prodatum.

Cakewalk / Cakewalk Instrument files, on Linux
« Last post by dawful on March 26, 2024, 11:28:53 PM »
I have a handful of MIDI hardware, that can be a pain to pair with many DAWs. The issue is selecting the specific patch/bank you want, from within the DAW (if you even can). You can use midi events,, to trigger a program change. But it is just nice when you have your hardware selection, right in the DAW. Cakewalk is a King among DAWs, here.

Some DAWs offer a collection of popular hardware instrument files. With most, you can make your own. Since I've been a long time Cakewalk fan, I have a collection of it's instrument files (many custom). This is one of the reasons why Linux is not very appealing to me.  Ardour has it's own instrument files (midnam), and you can find a collection of them here and there. But I was glad to find Qtractor has native support for Cakewalk instrument files. It's a nice quick'n'easy option, if you want to try that gear in a Linux environment.

I does stink, that Qtractor doesn't have automation for MIDI CC. But it does have the option to do a "poor man's" automation, via the MIDI editor. Right under the midi note matrix, where note velocity is commonly found, you can select the MIDI control you want to automate. The bummer is that it automates the same as you would with note velocity (probably not as smooth). I'm using an older version, so it is possible that CC automation has been added. Note: there are two icons for drawing , in the midi editor. They are both pencil icons. But the one with a wave behind it is ideal for editing the CC area.

Anyway, as a long time Cakewalk user, this was a cool discovery.
midi - Serial (PC) / Serial Drivers
« Last post by RetroGrouch on March 25, 2024, 02:40:36 PM »
Hi Everyone.

New here. I hope this is in the right place. Trying to pass on what little I've learned.

Put together a Windows 95 laptop (Gateway 2000 Liberty) and I am using it to control my JV-1010, 05R/W, and CBX-K1G.

Besides a Korg and Roland Editor, I also have Voyerta MIDI Orchestrater and XG works installed.

Installed the Yamaha driver, tested, all good. Installed the Korg driver, and it seemed to fight the Yamaha driver. Installed the Roland driver, and all hell broke loose. Had to re-instyall windows. Com 1 was locked, and nothing could access it.

After installing a SS drivew (HDD died during all this), I looked at the pinouts for the adapter cables carefully. Nothing out of place there.

Then, I got to thinking (oh oh). Isn't a serial MIDI driver a serical MIDI driver ? Why would they be manufacturer specific ?

Os, to test my hypotheses, I installed only the Yamaha Serial MIDI driver. And, low and behold, all three synths respond using just the one driver !

The link still works, but the download button doesn't. Is there any other source for this software?
