Hardware Editors for Roland JX-8P and Yamaha RM50 Synthesizers

I’ve recently published SysEx files that will make hardware-based voice editors for two vintage synthesizers, the Roland JX-8P and the Yamaha RM50, on the new music page of EvanLong.net.



The Roland JX-8P editor, which I call the PC-8P, is currently in version 1.1, and I believe that this will be its final release. It’s designed to work with the Peavey PC1600X MIDI controller and replace the original PG-800 controller which is specific to the JX-8P and twice the price of a PC1600X on the used market. The program will only take up a tenth of the PC1600X’s memory, so users will still have forty-five presets left over for controlling other gear.


The Yamaha RM50 editor, which I call the BCRM50, is currently also in version 1.1, and there will be extended and improved versions of it at some point in the future. It’s designed to work with the Behringer BCR2000 MIDI controller to produce several sixteen-note drum kits which are almost 100% editable. The RM50 has a powerful synth engine for a percussion synth, and the BCRM50 system is intended to make it as accessible as possible.
