Hi everyone! Just to let you know that the new John Melas MOX editor is amazing as I was able to discover and enjoy new voice samples from the other motif keyboards! However there is a minor problem perhaps it may be me, but its a problem I couldn’t sort out myself and cannot find the answers in the user manual. Here goes:

Issue 1. Can you just load individual voices of your choice to the user bank instead of having to load 128 voices altogether? Meaning I have voice I like from the voice library listed in the User 1 bank but in the meantime have a voice I also like in the MOX’s user 1 voice bank. If uploading a voice to the MOX will actually entail loading the whole user 1 voice set from the library by default and replacing the on-board user 1 bank there’s no way I could use these two desired voices together say for example in a perfomance, song or pattern.

Issue 2. Can you, if the above has no solution, be able to load user 1 from your voice library to user 2 in the MOX instead? That way you can have those two desired voices in the MOX. I cannot find a way to this with the software.

If someone has figured this one out already please post a thread/reply… John, any suggestions? Many thanks in advance!:-)

Cheers,
Raging

I have not got the Melas MOX Editor yet, but you should be able to move single Voices quite easily.

Double clicking a VOICE in the EDITOR sends it immediately to the MOX Edit Buffer where you can then easily STORE it to any location within your MOX. I should mention that the MOX EDIT BUFFER is where you can audition, play, edit, a VOICE… when a Voice is in the MOX edit buffer it does not overwrite the data under it. In fact, moving away and back, you discover the Voice location is still occupied by the VOICE that was STORED in that location… So this is one method of audition Voices and then deciding you want to keep it or not. If you want to keep it, press [STORE] and select a USER location to keep it.

I believe you can also drag and drop VOICES in the editor to place them where ever you require.

I bought the Vintage Keys from Keyfax. I saved everything to USB stick before loading them to User 3. When I loaded them,my User 1 and 2 were reset. If the new voices only load to User 3, why would User and 2 be affected? I have Melas’ Mix Editor - how can I make a composite of current and ‘new’ voices that I can save and load?

Most 3rd party libraries are set up to overwrite as an ALL file, as in ALL user data...mostly for ease of installation.  So, the Vintage Keys Library overwrote BANKS 1,2, and 3.

Since you saved an ALL file before loading (Good for you!), you can easily LOAD the BANKS of yours prior to the library install (USER 1 and 2) back in.  That will leave you with Vintage Keys in BANK 3, and your other VOICES in USERs 1 and 2.

If it works the same as for the Motifs, the Melas’ Mix Editor is not for library customization as such, what you want is the Total Librarian.  However, I am not specifically familiar with how the MOX version of the John Melas software is organized.

Thanks much for the info, cmayhle. So, spending $ on only the mix editor may turn out to be a bigger expense than buying the total librarian in the 1st place. I hope there’s an upgrade path.

Let me ask why you only bought the Mix Editor?  It is a rather specialized piece of software that is usually purchased as part of a larger bundle.

I have all of the John Melas software, which is excellent, but the Total Librarian is really the cornerstone of the system, and it is what allows you to easily set-up and customize user library VOICES and BANKS.

I would contact John Melas directly, he is very approachable.  You may be able to work out a retro-package deal, which I would personally recommend as ultimately you are going to find all of the programs useful.
