Edit: link to the post where the converter is located:

http://electro-music.com/forum/post-101311.html

Hey,

Apparently there is a new sub-forum. I didn't know. Anyways that is were the converter is located. That is where you will download it. As g2ools gets more utilities, I think it would be better served here. But since it's major application is the nm2g2 converter, that's a good place for now.

After some more hard work, it's here. Many bugs were fixed and the DX7 converter was updated extensively. New models and updates were done by 3phase with help and discussion with g2ian. I of course did the code. This one is the most stable and complete version we have. So go out and try it. At the end of this post is the list of updates.

I'm not going to work on it for a while as I have another project to work on. But I'll be back in a month or so. I'll still watch the forum and answer questions and read suggestions. So please let us know your experience with it.

I'd like to thank 3phase for his countless hours of analyizing and make models, BlueHell for answers to the hard questions, g2ian for the DX7 converter support, cappy2112 for willingness to build a GUI, and mosc for this forum (the glue that binds us together). If I forgot to mention you, sorry. The ones listed had the most influence on this project as well as all who read this forum.

I hope you enjoy it...

I'm glad the terminal output is a lot less --verbose, at least now I can see what patches it does in -r mode Very Happy

Good work and thanks, may your other project be as succssfull.

Congrats Mr qfinger Smile..

that was hard work..
i also have to do other projkets now... was like a halfdays job all the time...
not leaving the time to go deep into other things...

buts allmost there.. except of optimisations and bugs that might be found there are only a handfull features missing...

like morphs on switches ( what actually would be rather a point for a G2 update than to patch around in the converter! )
optimized delay line handling...
The rare case where the multistage envelope needs its 5th stage when having sustain on L1 or L2...
and...?
X NM Fix Seq one shot mode for length >16·..
is only working up to 64 steps now..we need another idea there to handle that... 8 sequencers in a row is too heavy..its limited to a max of 4 in the moment...

One thing..could we have a sticky again that points to the other subforum?
for anouncements of new versions...
I also passed the link to the german clavia distributer and a electronic music magazin..would be good if it stays intact.

And in the other subforum..if its not too much work..
it would be nice to have a thread there that is only for handling informations where we can compile a manual at a later point..
Within the ongoing discussion installation hints and alike got a bit burried...

Big thanks to q and Sven for DX2G2,

Great work on the LFO!

One small bug in the DX PitchEG rate.
My function used a G2 envelope time table in 1/10ths of a ms, so if you are using the built in G2 envelope time table, you don't need to pre multiply dxtime by 10.

As it is, PitchEG rates are 10 times longer than they should be.
I don't know how important it is, but there are further improvements I could make to the PitchEG. Like fitting Sven's measurements to a curve rather than interpolating. Using a table in the converter to fit a non linear level scale to a linear one is not ideal, probably one case where an extra module or two is justified.

Thanks again.

Ups..havent had the ability to check that..still dont have sysex comunication swith the old DX7 and therefore only could compare to the rom i own..wich is just rom 1...

However..what would be a release without bugs that are found imideatly after the release Wink

I actually like you super minimal approach where only the operators are set...

That is somehow more a transportmedia to get settings for further use within G2 patches while the actual conversion is a emulator..

maybe booth models could be applied in a future version of dx2g2 ?
Than it would be justified to get the emulator even more accurate when you allways have the cheap version available without changing the distribution folder around...
