Ctrlr based editor for MBSID V2

117 posts in this topic

i downloaded the last version >  http://ctrlr.org/midibox-sid-v2/   . I Connected my midi in/out cables into the sammichSID to the soundcard , opened the ctrl program, opened the pannel and configured the midi properties . In CTLR Midi Input says OK  , midi output says OK , but nothing happens when i move the pannel knobs.  I press the "play" button and can´t hear nothing. I press receive or INIT but nothing happens.  My midi input in the sammichSID works because few minutes before i connected a keyboard and it works.  So , what is happening ? . thanks you 

OOOP !! PROBLEM SOLVED !  I RESET THE SOUNDCARD to defaults .  Sorry ,  problem solved. Thanks for all.

Hi TK,
I'm having a lot of fun with wavetables recently, and ripping them from SID Tunes.

Do you have upcoming plans to add the Wavetable Editor to Ctrl?

I'm particularly interested in using the Multi Engine for wavetables.

I know you have a hectic schedule but it would be nice to see the Ctrl panel finalized. 

It would be nice to have a full editor you can use fully offline (without connecting to the MIDIbox SID)

A lot of the time Rutger's Editor Crashes and dumps a log file when I close the patch editor window and click Yes to Save.

Kind Regards.

^^^ so this doesn't edit wavetables?

So the only way to program wavetable sequences is through the MIOS menu?

Is there any non-Hex windows based application that can edit sequences? I hate to say it..but Mode Machines had a really nice way to do it.

Have a look at Rutger's Java based editor for MIDIbox SID. The wavetable implementation is complete:

Alternatively, could I use a standard c64 tracker and then punch the values in the wavetable sequencer in MIOS?

in MIOS Studio?

MIOS Studio is for uploading the firmware to MIDIbox SID, asfaik it never had a wavetable sequencer built in to it! :)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong!

Your best bet is using Rutgers editor.

I'm running recommended Ctrlr_ac6a3185.exe on Windows (it is now available from archive.org only).

Selection SID1 - SID4 does not work correctly. Only SID1 selection produces expected results.

E.g., I activate ENS tab. I can receive and modify patch # etc. for first core. When I switch cores (SID2-SID4), information seams to be received correctly, but when I modify any knob (e.g. patch#), it does not get stored to ENS buffer.

The only condition under which it get stored, as I noticed, is when that particular SID core I've selected in CTRLR is selected on control surface also.

From time to time I notice messages like "SIDx not available (No MBNet Response)" on LCD. Sometimes they last for a second, sometimes they stay.

MIOS studio reports a continuous flow of messages

F0 00 00 7E 40 00 0F 00 F7

from MIDI IN, when CTRLR is active.

How do I even use this?? I've downloaded it.....does it need to be compiled? Never ran a Java script this way.

It's not Java Script, it's a Java executable. 

Just download and install Java on your machine and run the .jar file. 

Make sure the midi in and midi out of the MIDIbox SID is connected properly otherwise you won't be able to open the patch editor interface.

Right, but in the link you posted there's no .jar files just CLASS files.

I posted a link to a zip file with the .jar file inside. 
I have no idea how you're seeing class files unless you clicked a different link to mine?

Hi, any way someone can upload Ctrlr_ac6a3185.exe here? I can't find it anywhere. Thanks

I don't know if we should upload  software made by others on here (even if it is free), but you can always try the wayback machine:

web.archive.org

Then enter ctrlr.org as URL

Then click on the circa date the files should have been present in their download area

Then click on the download area - i just did this experimentally for 2013 and it works - but you have to search for your exact release by properly travelling in time, which is half of the fun :)

Many greets and good luck!

today i download versions of Ctrlr_1655 & Ctrlr_262f2710 and they both work fine in standalone mode(not vst) on my Mac 10.13.16, i downloaded them from this archive http://web.archive.org/web/20140518080526/http://ctrlr.org:80/nightly/ 
maybe it will be useful for new users...

Thanks, this editor is excellent, i'm so tired of making an editor from my small screen :)
