The Roland Integra-7 Sound Module uses the SuperNATURAL sound and behavior modeling technology to provide the greatest sounds from Roland's long history, including keyboards, V-Drums and SRX Library. But it's a rack-mount module, so... how do you control it? That's where this layout comes in. It provides easy control for the Integra-7, allowing you to play any part of an Integra Studio-Set without having to change the transmitting MIDI channel of your keyboard. This layout has gotten a lot of love on the Roland forums, and we're glad to bring it to you here. This is the author's first layout... congrats!
This is my layout for the Roland Integra-7 sound module. It allows to play any part of an Integra Studio-Set without having to change the transmitting MIDI channel of your keyboard (and something more...).
In this layout you can find:
- a "latched" page:
- a "layer" page
both showing two sub-pages: "Channel 1" and "Channel 2" and
- a "B3 organ" page (more about it later...):
Each sub-page shows 16 buttons (one for each part), each named with the relevant tone's name (they are set with the names of my live Studio-Set tones, but you can change them editing the MidiDesigner layout).
When you press a button the receiving midi channel of the relevant part is changed to channel 1 or channel 2 (depending on which sub-page you are using), whilst a released button changes such channel to #16 (supposing that this is a midi channel you don't use). So you can connect two midi keyboards (one transmitting on midi channel 1 and the other one on midi channel 2) to play all the parts of your Studio-Set.
In the "latched" page when you press a button the previously selected one is released, so you can change very quickly the playing part.
In the "layer" page you can select more than one button at the same time, so that you can layer different parts; please note that:
- for each button there is a knob to set the volume of the relevant part;
- the "latched" page has an "Unbalanc." button that allows you to redirect the sound signal to the balanced outputs (A stereo output) or to the unbalanced ones (B stereo output);
- in the "layer" page you can find, for each part, two sliders respectively setting the low and the high velocity limits, so you can get velocity switching.
- With the "B3 Organ" page you can control an organ tone placed on part 1: drawbars, percussion, leslie speed, drive, leakage and key click level. Moreover, on this page, you can find "Mute 1" and a "Mute Input" buttons.
