Layout for Yamaha's DX7/TX7 Reface. Now in version 1.3, this newly-refactored layout controls many parameters of the DX7.
Everybody and his sister has a DX7, so it was time to make a layout for it in version 1.6.5. I want you guys to test this out. Reading through some forums I saw that people had trouble with controlling their DX7 with a midi controller. They encountered real-time audio problems. I used long throw on the controls so I hope they will solve the real-time audio problems. Right now I didn't have the opportunity to test the layout in the studio, but tomorrow I will connect the DX7 to the studio. I uploaded this so you guys can test it too. And please report anything you notice. I am thinking of adding various step buttons on the layout should the layout cause trouble during realtime use.
Alg+Op Page: contains the Algorithms and some global preset settings.
Keys Page: Contains 5 octaves of keys from C1 through D5.
Every Op page represents one Operator now.
Now you can have keys on the left page and the operators on the right side.
Or you can choose to have the Algorithms and Operator activation on the left side and the Operators on the right side.
Before you can use this layout make sure that SYS INFO is set set to Avail in the DX7/TX7 otherwise your gear won't react to the sysex messages.
Edit: I created version 1.1. Some parameters of the DX7 cause glitches when I turn the knobs on my layout so I just introduced step buttons for every knob except the volume knob that has no glitches.
New in version 1.1
- Volume knob (marked with a red background. Had to find a place somewhere. :))
- Internal preset selection (marked with a red background)
- Cartridge preset selection (marked with a red background)
- Step buttons for every knob
- All knobs labels are in upper case now.
Bit Changers have been added so you can now turn on and off the operators you want to turn on and off.
Layout has been rearranged. All operator pages have been moved to bank 2. Most global setting have been moved to bank 1. A keyboard page with a small keyboard has been added to support the TX-7 better. Screen shots update will follow.
