Based on the feedback I got for my system editor for the Yamaha Reface CS, I decided to extend it and included the same functionality for Reface DX, Reface CP and Reface YC. All those system settings, that are available in the CS, CP and YC only via the switch off - press and hold a key - switch on procedure, can be set much easier and faster from this layout. Of course the range of available functions differs from model to model, e.g. CP and YC don´t have a looper.
While in the DX most of the functions can be controlled directly via the synths display, this layout allows to concentrate on sound creating on the synth and controlling the other stuff from the iPad.
- I did not include the Master Tune, as the MIDI implementation for this is really weird and I could´t find a way to implement it in a reliable and meaningful way.
- While you can switch the foot control input to accept a foot switch with half-pedal function, the CS and DX will not respond to it. However the function will be transmitted via MIDI to control other keyboards, such as the CP (which does respond to half-pedal).
- Keep in mind that the Transpose function affects the Reface keyboard, but not its tone generator (as you would probably expect). Therefore when you play it from another keyboard via MIDI, this control will have no effect.
There is also an iPhone version of this layout available here: http://mididesigner.com/qa/5996/layout-reface-series-system-editor-iphone
