Bristol Synths

Postby Riesenzwerg » Sat Mar 30, 2019 1:12 am

Hello to all,

maybe a problem in future: MusE support 128 banks with 128 patches. Bristol do not use banks, but 0 - 999 storage-places linear for example in the DX7-Emulation. How can I reach the places above no. 128?

Actually MusE supports 16384 midi banks with high/low bank..

Tested the DX emulator: It appears not to support midi high- and low- banks.

By adjusting the high/low and program numbers from a MusE midi track (the blue seven segment numbers on the midi track mixer strip),
the Bristol DX should have responded by changing to patches beyond the first 128.

But it did not.

I can't seem to find any info and the README does not mention what actual patches are available.
Maybe contact the author to see if midi high/low banks are supported ?

[Edit:] I note that the stand-alone ZynAddSubFx does work with our high/low bank adjustments. So we do know that is working.

[Edit 2] Also: ZynAddSubFx responds properly to our bank changes, switching to and returning to each patch properly.
Bristol DX does not. It appears to have some difficulty in handling midi bank switching, not returning to the same patch each time.
Tested with ALSA and Jack drivers.

When I adjust MusE's high and low bank values, here is what Bristol tells me it is receiving.
It appears to be listening but just not responding well:
