Thanks Mark, I really appreciate the kind words.
I guess it's worth doubly pointing out that ZenEdit will ONLY work with 4.0 boards. It cannot interpret data from a 3.x board.
For a 3.x Zendrum, you can probably still use Mokugyo (http://zendrum.com/resource-site/zmokug.htm
). I believe (but someone correct me if I'm wrong) that Geosphere wrote that app. It's sort of a one-trick-pony in that it only allows you to change note values, and only speaks general MIDI, but it does what it does well and I myself used to use it before I upgraded my board.
ZenEdit of course goes much farther than that. On just comparing that one feature (changing notes) ZenEdit brings to the table:
- Can use note names from GM, your module or your software
- Can display melodic note names.
- Can set values for all 4 crossfade points.
And of course that's not to mention all the other features it exposes, such as fine tuning the calibration for each trigger by setting the noise floor and velocity curve. So in that sense, they are apples and oranges.
