LAYOUT: Yamaha SY77/TG77 Voice Editor by ibo-kai

1508 downloads
Yamaha
Yamaha released the SY77 keyboard -- and the TG77 rack-mount -- in 1989. They coined the term "Realtime Convolution and Modulation Synthesis" to describe the sound engine. It's an FM-synthesis and sample-based hybrid that creates amazingly rich, layered and multitimbral sounds.

This Platinum layout is well-thought-out, well-designed, well-executed and brilliant on every level. Master Layout Author Ibo Kai, winner of the Rainer Award for layout-design excellence, goes deep with this layout. He not only shows a particular vision of the TG77 through the layout, but he also provides a particular workflow. And that's EXACTLY what great editor design is about.

We're so fortunate to have Ibo Kai and his many contributions. Some of this others include brilliant editors for the Kawai K1, Yamaha Reface DX, and the Korg 707. Big ups, Ibo Kai!

LAYOUT: Full Editor for Yamaha Reface DX by ibo-kai

586 downloads
Yamaha
Master Layout Designer Ibo Kai brings us his Complete Editor, a Platinum Layout, for the Yamaha reface DX.

Yamaha released the Reface Mobile Mini Keyboards at Summer NAMM of 2015, including the exciting reface DX. DX is synonymous with FM synthesis since the 1980s. The reface DX itself is a modern version of the DX100, which is one of the most underrated synths of the 1980s. Like the DX100, the reface DX focuses on portability. Some things are the same as the DX100, and some, like the built-in speaker.

This editor is the basis for the related performance editor, and includes five pages, including: "Quick Access" Parameters, Operator Controls, Common Parameters, and 2 FX Units, Master Settings, and Util. Like all of Ibo Kai's layouts, it's beautiful, functional, and takes the reface DX to a whole new level.

LAYOUT: Sound Programmer for Kawai K1 by ibo-kai

1171 downloads
Kawai
A full sound editor for the Kawai K1 by Master Layout Author Ibo Kai!!! The Kawai K1 (and K1m for desktop, and K1r rack-mountable) was released in 1988 and is still a well-loved, 16-voice polyphonic sample-based PCM synthesis. Vintage Synth Explorer says, "The K1 is one of Kawai's most economic digital synthesizers in the K-series. The K1 has 256 digital samples of waveforms, 50 of which are from acoustic instruments. You combine up to four wave shapes to create very new and unique sounds. The K1 is capable of very good acoustic recreation, excellent unique synth sounds or at times, completely noisy walls of complex sound." Lots of hurdles were overcome to create this masterpiece, including... errors in the MIDI spec. We are very lucky to have this amazing layout, and aside from how comprehensive it is... it looks great!

Open up, discover and explore the soul of your JD-990, wirelessly, from your iPad. Create complex patches with ease while manipulating multiple controls and tones at the same time. MIDI Designer's control overlay feature makes editing the JD on a touch screen feel much more analog like than any other editor can.

This layout is extensive and beautiful and redefined the boundaries of what's possible with MIDI Designer.

LAYOUT: Editor for Yamaha Reface DX by helfried

Yamaha
The Yamaha reface DX was released at Summer NAMM in 2015 as part of the Reface Mobile Mini Keyboards line. The reface DX is a modern version of the DX100, which many experts agree is one of the most underrated synths of the 1980s. The reface DX focuses on portability: 37 mini keys, a built-in speaker, optional battery power and a low price point are some of the big differences from the original. And for such a tiny keyboard... this EXTENSIVE, Platinum layout.

We take our hats off to the author, Helfried, for this extensive, bidirectional MIDI controller for the Yamaha reface DX. And like most good things these days, this layout underwent a LOT of iteration. Amazing... lots of detail and precision in this one... check it out!

LAYOUT: Voice Editor for Yamaha DX21 by ibo-kai

1418 downloads
Yamaha
The Yamaha DX21 was one of a new, three-strong range of 4-operator FM synths to appear in 1986. The layout author says, "The Yamaha DX21 was the first synth I ever laid my hands on, when I was a young boy (it wasn't my own one, unfortunately). Just recently I found a used unit in really mint condition in my neighborhood and I decided to buy it, mostly for nostalgia. Of course I didn't bother to program sounds on the synth itself, but instead made this layout for far quicker and easier editing."

LAYOUT: YAMAHA CS6X/R by ezb

Yamaha
The Yamaha CS6x (and the rack-mount version, the CS6R) was released in 1999. It's a wickedly powerful (64-channel polyphony!) 61-key keyboard with awesome sounds. It's been called the "best synth for EDM" and boasts all kinds of cool features (filters, plug-in system boards adding new types of synthesis, and more). And it's a sampler! But where this device falls down is in the UI: to say the least, it's "not very user friendly." And this is where EZB enters the picture with this insanely extensive, platinum-medaled layout for MDP2. This layout is HUGE, which shows his dedication and craftsmanship: it spans eight banks (four on each side) and uses almost the full six pages in each bank. It represents thousands of hours of work, so if you dig it, please give EZB some feedback on the Q&A site. Enjoy!

Roland JX-3P, JX-8P, MKS-30, MKS-50 by rainer

An historical first, Rainer's first layout controls many of the most important 80s synths by Roland: JX-3P with Organix mod, JX-3P with KiwiTechnics upgrade, MKS-30 with Johannes Hausensteiner mod, JX-8P, Juno 106, Roland Alpha Juno 1 & 2 + MKS-50, Roland MKS-70 A + B, and the Roland MKS-70 Patch. This layout inspired the entire Community to get to work. It's not just a classic: it's the first Platinum Layout ever, so it's not just a work of art. It's a trail-blazing work of art which inspired so many others. Thanks to Rainer for inventing this activity!

Enjoy!

Roland
The Dood knocks it out of the park with this amazing Platinum controller for the Roland Aira TB-3 Bassline. As the author tells is: "Roland basically hid most of the synth in System Exclusive. It really is a full blown mono synth, with Ringmod LFO and twin Effects! Why they didn't release an iPad controller/app etc. for it I have no idea as this thing is utterly WASTED without the extra Sysex control." This is the true meaning of DIY and we're so excited that MDP2 allowed the Dood to unlock the next level on this Roland box.

Akai Miniak/Alesis Micron Controller by landschall

Akai
Alesis
Author and Broque artist André Noller (Landschall) explains his motivation for building this MIDI controller:

"As many know, this synth was nearly un-editable (at least for me) because of the missing controllers and the ‘calculator-styled’ display with one (!) endless knob and a few shortcuts to get to the menus faster (but not fast enough if you ask me)."

André worked closely with the MIDI Designer development team to achieve control of every parameter in the Miniak. The Sequential Subcontrols feature was implemented to achieve full control over the Miniak/Micron.

This is the first complete, real-time MIDI controller for the Akai Miniak and the Alesis Micron. The author’s work is aesthetically simple, but amazingly comprehensive and utilizes MIDI Designer to the maximum extent.

LAYOUT - ROLAND FANTOM X Editor by elkbeat

Roland
This is a Platinum layout for MDP2. Platinum layouts represent thousands of hours of work and a great eye for aesthetics. If you inspect this layout in Design Mode, you'll see just how deep it goes. This layout comes from the need to control the Fantom XR, since the knobs on the device are nearly unworkable. This layout isn't just an amazing piece of software: it's also an uplifting human story about how to turn a problem -- controlling this gear -- into an amazing work of art. Huge congratulations to Elkbeat on this layout.

Be sure to check out the notes, and enjoy!
