Jer, that's certainly possible with the current annotation system.  Right now I allow you to add notes to individual user setups and triggers.  I could also add that ability to the file as a whole too.

I also made a note to offer an automatic "screen shot" feature.  The feature set is really coming together now!

It's not yet ready for prime-time, however the ZenEdit application also makes a fine tool for documenting layouts like this.  With of course the added bonus of including the actual sysex file with the screenshot so that you can try out various layouts on a whim.

Doesn't help us right at this second, but just throwing it out there.

Pretty much just ditto'n what Slavedave is saying there.  If were talking something along the lines of a V-Machine then I'd be very excited to see where this goes!

Second or third quarter, 2010.  Although I'll probably be looking for beta testers sometime before that.

Yep!  You can also "name" each setup too which definitely helps keep track of them.

Somewhat better view of it, and the giant wire harness running out of it: 

You can also make out some of his rig there -- looks like about 5 or 6 DM5s and DMPros.  Good night nurse.

Does anyone have any info on this custom ZX?  Appears to have about 200 triggers on it.  I'm assuming he's got at least two boards in there.

Yup.  Near as I can tell it's only active during a manual sysex receive operation.

Hi Luke, Mokugyo only understood ASCII text files.  MIDI-OX does allow you to convert from the standard binary format to text though.

From the sysex window, right-click in the top pane (once your sysex is loaded there) and select "Save As".  One of the file formats available from the drop down should be "text".

Thanks for the heads-up, I never received an email notice about it from them  :-\

Heh, you can be forgiven for forgetting about Fd  ;)

It would be more memorable if it displayed a numeric value, rather then just a few bars.  As it is now it's not a very useful feature (imho).

Heh, I actually have the opposite problem - trying to train my hands to hit *softer*, especially at frantic speeds.

Generally speaking, there is no need to really whack the triggers all that hard.  Have you tried playing around with the noise floor (FL) and volume (UL) settings?  A tweak there might be all it takes to get the dynamics you are looking for.   Failing that, adjustments to the velocity curve (rC) will probably get the results you are looking for.

Also, have you upgraded to the v4 board yet?  The dynamics there are greatly improved (IMHO).

Honestly, no.  It could very well be offered as an alternative design, but I think the pads are way too closely placed for a new player.

Don't get me wrong, it's a cool layout and someone doing a lot of melodic phrasing or who has already mastered a Zen would have a field day with it.  But a newbie would have a very hard time memorizing and coming up with layouts and would need exceptional finger control to avoid accidental hits of adjoining pads.

That's just my two cents of course.

Tech Help / Re: Volume Control Pedal

Not the greatest photo, but you can see the CC knob I use for volume here:

Page 167 of your TD-10 manual (http://lib.roland.co.jp/support/en/manuals/res/1811143/TD-10_eG.pdf) lists which CCs (control change) it responds to.  It would appear that the TD-10 does not support CC#7, at least in it's unexpanded form.  I would try it anyways as #7 is a pretty rudimentary function and it may just be that the manual is wrong (wouldn't be the first time).  Also if you have an expanded TD-10, they may have added that feature.

Looks like a very efficient trigger layout.  Great job maxing it out!
