Subject description: possible global mod wheel issues
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

I just bought a G2X and I noticed that the global mod wheels don't seem to be working properly. They do register a value but it is static, it is not what I have attempted to program and then the values don't actually change the sound at all. I trust the seller of the synth that if anything is wrong he'd fix it so I'm not too worried, and I don't think it's a hardware problem. Most likely a user issue or a software issue are my first thoughts.

So the first thing I'd like to do is backup the entire system, all patches and performances because there are quite a few I want to keep and reinstall the OS(which is 1.4). Is there a way to do a sysex dump that is easy, and if so how? The only thing I can find in the manual is a single patch or performance dump.

the second step to my remedy is to find a patch that utilizes the global mod wheels already so I can rule out user error, even though I find the synth a breeze to use for most things. So if anybody has a patch, can you point me to it.

Any help would be great thanks!

Brian

Hi, I can't check just st the moment, but I believe you can use the editor software to initiate a backup of at least entire program banks in one operation. I believe these are not stored as sysex, though, rather as files for the editor to operate on. It should so the trick though.

hmmm.....I've thoroughly looked at the software and can't seem to find any way to do this. The closest thing I've found is the save all command, but when I use it, it only saves the patch that is open. I'm guessing I've missed something?

The G2 sysex implementation isn't so useful.
You cannot save all banks/patches/performance via sysex.

This should be a basic requirement for all synth Mfgrs to follow.

Well I was able to backup all my patches and performances via bank upload in the software, but I am still unable to get the Global mod wheels to work properly so maybe it isn't a software issue but a hardware one Sad

Has anybody expirienced issues with thier global mod wheels?

Here's a patch that uses the global wheels for pitch mod rate and depth.
They are assigned via the morph groups.

well I tried the patch and my global mod wheels work fine, I guess I just need to figure out how to program them, maybe I need to set them up in software first or something? Thanks for the patch!!!
