Hello Cyrille,

Thanks for your interest in Flex Editor M1.

Here are a few items to check:

    - M1 MIDI filtering: Check Global>MIDI FILTERING page and make sure "EXCL" is set to "ENA
    - Program Memory Protect: Check Global>PROGRAM MEMORY PROTECT page and make sure "Internal" is set to "OFF"
    - Global MIDI Channel: Be sure the MIDI Channel is set to 1. The software currently only works on that channel (something I need to update soon)


See if any of these help. If not, try to do a sysex dump in MIDIOX to see if the problem is not software related.

Good luck!

Hi Sunriser,
Thanks for the Flex Editor!
I'm probably missing something obvious, but I can't figure out how to create a new sysex file made up of individual programs from two other sysex files. When I tried moving some files to the library, saving it under a different name and reopening it, all the other files were still there.

Monkroad,

Open each Sysex file in turn and right-click>Send to Library of each program you want to use in your new file.

Create a New Project. Go to the Library and drag each library program onto the Program List wherever you want.

Save to Syx.

Good luck!

Hello Sunriser.

Thank you for your answer.

The problem came from my interface. I finally bought an M-Audio and I have no worries. Your software works perfectly.

Thank you for this development and your help. It is very appreciated.

With pleasure and good continuation.

I am currently working on a PC-only editor/librarian software for the Korg M1 hardware synth.

It is still a work in progress, but I have enough completed to ,hopefully, get some people to test it out and give feedback, bug reports, suggestions, etc.

Link to software:

http://bakyardsoft.com/bakyard/M1EditorLib002Setup.exe

PC Requirements:

    Windows 7/8/10
    .NET 4.5 or higher (free download from Microsoft. Flex installer wil install this automatically!)


What it can do (currently):

    Open Program or ALL Data Syx files to view Programs only.
    Use the M1 Data Dump to capture current Programs in the M1.
    Edit All parameters in a gui interface including all FX assignments.
    Online or Offline editing (Online editing synchronizes edits from software to M1 so edits can be auditioned real-time or Offline allows editing of just the project)
    Individual Program download or Bulk download.
    Save updated project to .SYX for compatibility of other MIDI utilities (MIDI-OX)
    Handles 100/100 or 50/50 memory allocation.
    Other odds and ends to make editing in M1 more intuitive


What it can't do (but will soon):

    Open/Edit/Save Combis
    Open/Edit/Save Global
    Open/Edit/Save Sequence data
    Librarian features for copy/cut/paste or re-orginization of M1 projects
    Card Data implementation


I don't have a help file yet, but most of the software should be pretty intuitive. If you need more help, let me know here and I'll whip up a tutorial video on basic usage.

Hopefully, there's still a few M1 owners who can help me get this software off the ground.

Thanks!


Hello!
Thank you for the wonderful job! I am personally looking for a mixing differernt syx based on my needs. Assume that I want to make collection of the soundss from syx that I need. So I want to make a new syx that I could define which patch from which files sit in the file based on the order that I chose from the patch. Is there any software for korg M1 that has such capaibility? or is it possible to update you application to do such?

Many thanks!

Best regards,
Sam

@sam..korg,

My software can already do what you're looking for.

All you need to do is open each syx file and add the ones you want to the Library (right-click "Send To Library"). After you complete adding all PROGs and COMBIs to the library, create a New project, drag all the desire PROGs and COMBIs from the Library to the new project slots. Save as SYX.

IMPORTANT! While checking this functionality, I found a bug that was causing the app to crash. It happens when a PROG is copied from the library to a PROG slot and then the OSC tab is clicked. That has been fixed in the new version below.

New version 0.2.2:

@sunriser111671:

I could not change the patch number in the library yet.. I am not sure if I do not know how to do it or your editor does not have this feature yet. For example I sent patch number 3,6,8 from one syx file to the library but I want to change their patch number based on what I want like the below :

Patch 3 becomes 1
patch 8 becomes 2
patch 6 becomes 3

Thanks

@sam..korg

After you have your PROGs in the library, create a NEW PROJECT (Upper left button).

You should have a factory INIT PROG/COMBIs.

Go to the Library (Make sure you're toggling the upper right toggle button from "EDITOR" to "LIBRARIAN").

Click and drag your library PROGS (and COMBIS if desired) to the new project. Click "SAVE TO SYX FILE". Viola!

I just tested it myself and everything works fine.

PostPosted: Sun Jul 26, 2020 4:57 am    Post subject: Your M1 Software Reply with quote

Hello,

I've just come onto this forum looking for some solutions for my M1 that's recently come out of mothballs after many years.

I had downloaded your version .009A and it installed and opened fine. I was about to reply to you to thank you and ask if there was any documentation now as to operations when I noticed that there was a 02.2 version now in 2020. So I'm wondering if that is the most current version of this app?

One note, I tried to install this instead and my Windows 10 came up with warning there is some issue, so I chose option not to proceed. I see others on the string have had some issues they thought was a virus as well. Any updates on this?

I'd very much like to try latest version but will wait for your feedback on this as I don't want to run into issues on my computer if possible.

Thanks in advance.
Reg

@reginaldworthington:

Yes, at this time, 0.2.2 is the current version.

As far as documentation, I never did create any. Most people have been able to pick up on it fairly quickly (actually, you're the first one to request it!). Try it out if you're interested and message here if you have any issues.

As far as Virus warnings, it appears it was falsely flagged by one of the virus apps but was cleared when my app was submitted (check this message thread to see more info on this). Also, the program is not widely used, so you'll get the potential unsafe program warning. You can click "Run Anyway" to still install the app.

My app does not change the windows registry, or install services and anything else intrusive. It just creates a folder with my software and a shortcut link.

Actually, there is one thing else it may do upon installation: it will check your version of .NET for Windows and prompt you to update it via Microsoft if it is out-of-date.

If you have any misgivings, don't use it! This software, and the T1 version, are really just hobby programs I created and should be treated as such.

Best of luck on your M1 revival!

Thanks so much for getting back to me. I’ll go ahead and download that latest version then and Have a go with it.

It looks like quite useful application and could probably be adapted for a number of current use cases today.

Will come back to this thread to let you know how I’ve done (or maybe a question if I’m stuck) and thanks again.

Reg

Flex Editor crashes the moment I start Cubase.
And when Cubase is already running when I start Flex Editor, it crashes while starting.
Why is that?
Isn't it possible to use it side by side with Cubase?

In 1993, I wrote a program in C for the Atari 1040-ST to dump and load the memory of Korg M1 synthesizers. I didn't own a synthesizer at the time -- and still don't. This was a project for a composer / university professor. I've long-since forgotten the code.

But... I kept all the data files, and the manual.

Now, I'm trying to write something that will roughly approximate the synthesizer -- VERY roughly. The goal (fantasy? Wink) is to extract as much information from the ALL DATA DUMP files, roughly apply whatever parameters I can to the closest SounFont instruments I can find, get the timing of stuff right, and play back the sequences from the files.

I feel I'm making good progress, but that's probably because I'm underestimating the distance I still need to travel. Then I found this forum, and this topic.

I'm on a Linux box, and hoping to stay away from Wine. Not wild about .NET, but in a pinch, might try the dotnet-sdk package. (Not interested in snaps or flatpaks if I can avoid them.)

Is the source for your beastie out there anywhere?

Other tips? Currently, doing stuff in Python 3, but in my other fantasy I'm going to learn enough Rust to become dangerous there... (I've forgotten what little C I knew, and never learned C++, Java, etc. But I still know FORTRAN and a few different ancient mainframe assembly languages. Wink)

Thanks.
