FAQ


As you might know a lot of music producers and musicians use Apple computers.Any plans for Mac version?

Yes.
In First Quartile of 2008.

Now we work for cross-platform variant. (Win/Mac)


Yes, sounds changing are when I rotate knobs. I must be doing something wrong. Plz give me step by step instructions on how to load a program from the micron into your plugin.

You should use only the folders and files which are not containing spaces, like this "C:\midi _control\syx\my_syx.syx ", in a name. And so there all on standard. You can load from any disk.

Yes, I clicked on "load" button and nothing happened.

Then, you not configured your midi-outs.
Sounds changing when you rotate knobs on midiCTRL?


How do you load a program from the micron into your software to see the settings of all the parameters? for example, there is a program called "deep space" on the micron, I want to load this program into midiCTRL so I can see the settings and maybe change them.

For send program from micron to midiCTRL, you need to send it to your PC in sysex format and load via midiCTRL VST interface.


Right, I did that and as I said I have the sysex file in the midiCTRL VST interface browser. Now what do I do?

You need to click on "load" button.


Can you please download REAPER and test if midiCTRL will work in it. I don't want to waste time trying to figure it out if it doesn't.





I installed it. there is no sysex file called "RESET_PATCH" in the installation folder. There is an .fxp file called "RESET." what is the .fxp file for?

Also, I don't understand step 3. What is a "preset from your's SYSEX programms"? how do you do this?

You can use any single program presets for micron/ion from your sysex library. (not banks).
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/alesis-ion/ - there tones of presets, if you don't have it.

FXP is for VST. (it's option from old versions)
But your program already can use reset function.

You can get it here:

www.midictrl.com/RESET_PATCH.syx

This SYSEX set all program setups to zero and activate all (12) modulations (for midiCTRL).

You can try to load this to your synth for RESET before work. After loading, keep this program, as deafult.


How did you configure VSThost to make it run ? (I mean, on midi-port side ?)
Which version of the demo DLL do you use ? micron.dll, micron_c.dll or micron_a.dll ?

You need to move the VST plug on directory with the name micron. Ie micron.dll and folder "micron" will be the same folder. then all will work.
For example:
folder: C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins\micron\
dll: C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins\micron.dll

I made this plugin in 2 cases:
a) for all (Ableton optimised) - with multiple midiout option
b) for Cubase & any: with one default out.
If you want to make one MIDI out - install cubase/fl version.
for multiple - Ableton version.

Ableton version work for me in any system or host, i use midiox with maple virtual cables, because i'm Ableton user:)
They don't know nrpn/sysex output.

only VST dll files:

I am interested in your Micron editing software. I use Cubase SL3. Do I have to use BOMES SENDSX? Is it not possible to send it via Cubase?

In Cubase you can use native MIDI OUT.
Add first midi track with in from your controller and out to midiCTRL. (for midilearn).
Add second midi track with input from midicontrol and out to your Alesis Micron or Ion.
Thats it.

For Cubase you can install version marked as "...all...".

I has added demo in setup files, for some example settings.
