LAYOUT: A MIDI Controller for the Roland VG-99 V-Guitar System by erikbojerik

When Paul Hanson took the stage to introduce the VG-99 V-Guitar System at the Winter NAMM show 2007, the audience was amazed. That amazement continues even now. For many guitarists, the VG-99 is the guitar system that showed how Roland’s modeling technology could be musically relevant and even mind-blowing.

But this 8″ by 16″ box with a small LCD screen and a bunch of knobs and buttons is not ideal for realtime control. So, when Erik Hauri became a MIDI Designer Pro user in October 2012, his first project was to make a layout for the VG99. The MIDI controller he created is very pleasing to look at, but even more pleasurable to use. Great choice of color palette, spacing, fonts, and extensive use of XY pads are among the smart decisions that make this MIDI controller work.

We’re very lucky to have Erik bring us this welcome addition to MIDI Designer’s presence in the world of guitar.

Layout: Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 and the new GliGli OS by austingreen

Sequential Circuits
A beautiful layout for the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 with GliGli Firmware. As the author says, "The runt of the Sequential litter, first to midi, and never much thought of until.... some strange dude took it upon himself to completely rewrite the os and breathe new life into this old dog." This layout covers the entire MIDI spec, but all testing and feedback help. Thanks and enjoy!


LAYOUT: Peavey Spectrum Bass by thedood

Had one of these laying round for years. It has virtually no front control, and relies on sysex for most synth based control. This Panel fully implements it all and it seems to work fine. These are ba…

LINE6 POD HD500 Layout (MDP2) by fdesnoyers

We're ecstatic to have these Line 6 layouts for guitarists. This entry includes two layouts by Master Designer François Desnoyers: one that "covers all controls defined in LINE6 official documentation for POD HD500 (Firmware version 2.62.)" And another "covering POD HD500 and GR55 MIDI controls in LIVE situation." These layouts get a lot of love from MIDI Designer users, and they look good and make a guitar rig hum. Check the notes for another layout that covers the DT50 amp, also by Line 6.

LAYOUT: Clavia NORD LEAD 4 by stashhunter

The first version of the Nord Lead was released by Clavia in 1995. Gordon Reid from Sound on Sound called it, "a magic piece of electronics," and it demonstrated a new type of synthesis -- "Virtual Analog Synthesis" -- to an industry obsessed with PCM-based workstations and samplers. The Nord Lead 4 continues the evolution with "innovative new performance features, advanced layering and synchronization possibilities, new filter types and on-board effects." The problem, as usual, is how to control such a beast? The Lead 4 only has 29 knobs and some buttons. As layout author Stashhunter (Michael) puts it, tweaking on the knobs of the NL4 is "funny" (think "awkward"). So he created this layout, "to visualize the lots of parameters of the complex voices." It's got some limitations -- see the notes -- but overall it's a wonderful way to get some control over this monstrous and amazing synth. We're extremely grateful to our Community and pioneers like Stashhunter for their contributions.


Magellan, Galileo, AUFX, Loopy, Filtatron Bundle UPDATED 4/2/14 by cswinn

A Tasty Pixel
Yonac Inc.
This amazing layout is a great example of how MD allows you to combine multiple MIDI targets ("things to control") in one layout ("controller"). Cswinn has invested a huge amount of time on this layout, and it shows. Great choices, a nice visual aesthetic and the ability to go deep and figure out problems make this layout a must have if you use ANY of these targets: Yonac Inc. Magellan + Gallileo, Kymatica AUFx, A Tasty Pixel's Loopy HD, and Moog Filtatron. Enjoy this amazing user contribution!

iPhone with EnergyXT2 by mossontherock

According to the author, "The so named Silver Synth layout below was derived from my iPad's larger layout and sectioned into pages. It was designed using a software DAW and soundfonts. I used EnergyXT2 as the host and a number of other VST midi tools with S-Poly-Limiter VST being key to switching voices off and on. All the required parameters have a midi learn function so finding an exact CC number was not important - it just had to be unique and not interfere with any other CC."


Layout: Korg Monotribe + Midi = Miditribe by austingreen

The Korg Monotribe -- like just about everything made by Korg -- is an amazing little device. This layout -- the MidiTribe -- is a fun and functional way to control the Korg with a few really cool extras, including austingreen's proprietary "Hive Note Layout." Fascinating, well-designed and useful... not just as a controller for the Monotribe, but as a starting point for other controllers.

U-He Zebra Keyboard Player by tomschi

The U-He Zebra is a "wireless modular synthesizer [that] combines many different types of synthesis with a powerful modulation engine." It's infinitely expressive, using "pure synthesis [to deliver] more expressive & natural sounds." But how can you control it? That's where this layout comes in: it provides a sensible, performance-optimized layout with presets, a built-in six-octave keyboard, and an arp control. It can even be used with an external keyboard. But the brilliance, as always, is in the smaller details too, like the Global Note Transpose and the use of a separate MIDI channel for input and output. Very smart, very functional!


LAYOUT: Roland D50 (Updated 8 feb 2015: v1.1) by bleunoir83

As the author tells it:

I bought MidiDesigner specifically to make a layout for my Roland D50, because I was in love with its sound but appalled at its controls, and a PG1000 module costs twice as much as the synth itself... So here it is!

- Controls all 313 parameters editable by Sysex, with the exception of patch names
- Parameters with names instead of numbers as values (for example, the PCM waves and bias settings) all have corresponding named ticks.
- I have split controls for the TVA and TVF into basic and advanced controls - mainly because i couldn't fit all of them on one page.
- A Supercontrol page is added controlling parameters on all 4 partials at once.

Amazing, great control of the D50. Nice work, enjoy!
