Direct Performance Recording on Moxf is great but I have two major problems with it :
So for using the full potential of Moxf, and creating powerful performances with complex arps and not be afraid as how record them I have write an utility for trying resolving these issues.
The basic idea is I consider a performance have 8 parts not 4.
Here is the basic workflow for recording a performance:
You can now continue recording/editing in song mode or transfer your song in pattern mode and continue working or transfer your song to a DAW via midi file or direct recording.
Your song/mixing have this structure :
If while recording and playing your song on Moxf, you select a part (via ‘Part Select’ buttons on Moxf) and move a button (Cuttof, Resonance, FegDepth, AS1, AS2, etc) a sysex is generate by the Moxf, these sysex are converted to CC for the right part(s) and channel(s) later by the soft. Some button like FegDepth can’t be converted to CC, so a new sysex for song mode is generated by the soft, as sysex have no channel these sysex are put on Track one by Moxf.
While recording you can select by part or global ARP ON/OFF buttons on Moxf, the soft recognise the sysex transmitted on port 4 by Moxf and adapt his rules of conversions of datas on channel 1 (details of rules in the associate doc).
The soft can be used as a performance manager as you can get, save, load and send a performance with hese voices. (If a performance has user voices, you can write it on Moxf via ‘Write Voices’ button (save your voices before !)).
The screen try to present how to ‘conduct’ the performance via his controls and what arpeggios it has. (I am tired of swapping between ‘performance mode’ and ‘voice mode’ for remember or discover what happens If I move say MW or switch AF1 for each part, etc).
You can also do others things such as trying others arpeggios while playing a performance with screen for finding arpeggio by category. Relocate voices used by the performance. Relocate user arpeggios, etc. (See doc)
Finally, the soft is able to manage mute parts while recording, the problem is Moxf generate nothing if you press his mute buttons, but if you have a device like nanoKontrol (cheap) or Yamaha MFC10 and a soft like MIDI-OX (free) or Bome software you can map some CC to sysex and merge midi ports of controller and Moxf to a virtual port. So you can mute/unmute part while recording (details in associate doc).
I have write this program for my own use which is performance centric (after all this is the Montage’s paradigm). So depending on your own workflows you can find the additional functions useful or useless !
