The Roland JP-80x editor plug-in is out
Mystery Islands confirms and launches the Roland JP-8000 and 8080 hardware synths editor plug-in for Mac OS X.
The Roland JP-8000 / 8080 editor plug-in is available on Mac OS X 10.5 and later (Intel only) in AU and VSTi formats, Windows version is expected in the future.
The plug-in is designed to help you edit almost all the MIDI and automation parameters from your DAW. You can edit the layers individually or linked, send the modified parameters to the synth Temp buffer and save them into the hardware, load and save performance banks from/to your hard drive and browse the User Performance library from the plug-in.
Please note that when you open a project that includes the plug-in, the parameters will automatically be sent to the synth.
Mystery Islands also adds that Arp/Internal Tempo controls and Solo switch functions are currently not working with the Request function, but you can scroll the patches to send the values.
Limitations of the plug-in are the following: it does not sent any audio, it is not possible to save patches directly to the hardware (this feature could be added in the future), velocity and vocal modulator settings are not available (but they can be edited from the synth) and it is not possible to select external audio inputs (you can also do it from the synth).
The plug-in is available for 49.95€, with lifetime updates. A demo version can be downloaded from www.mysteryislands-music.com, it doesn't feature automation nor loading/saving banks functions.
