Re: K5 MP3s uploaded to the files section

Hi,

if you want more space then either we create a new group just for the
files, remove the unuseful bits and re-compress everything correctly,
use your "Yahoo Briefcase", post a link and make the files public.

Or maybe Klaus can give you some space on KFuenf.org ;-)

Hello to other K5 enthusiasts;
     I'm going to be upgrading to a Cameleon 5000 additive softsynth.
 So, I Must transfer all of K5 patches to Cameleon useable files.
     To do this, I will have to record a few notes to .wav at pp and
ff velocity levels.  Then, I will import those .wav files to Cameleon. 
     I want to compare Cameleon harmonic data with K5m harmonic data
and see how accurate the transfer was.
     I'll let you all know how it goes.

Oh, btw   I have a copy of the Syntonix Overtone DOS editor for K5m.

RE : greetings

Great! Someone else with Syntonyx Overtone. I was the
only one to have it until now. It's already in the
files section with the manual. 

All I have to do is to re-post the program with the
original content from the 4 floppies instead of the
directory I had on my computer. Do you know what
version do you have? Mine is 1.04 and the Read.me file
contains the updates for the manual.

Re: RE : greetings

Hey all,

Me too, me too.  I've had Overtone since 1987/88, but my original PC
has long since died.  I downloaded your files Antoine, and almost got
it working today -with a MPU 401 emulator under XP (VDMSound
http://sourceforge.net/projects/vdmsound/ ). 

Overtone seems to run fine, but doesn't detect the K5.  I'm pretty
sure the MIDI interface needs to be specified in Overtone. There are
instructions to set up a batch file in DOS toward the end of the
section 2.2 Installing OVERTONE in the manual.  I tried but it's been
a long time since I used DOS and it's kinda different using it under XP.

All that's needed is a batch file to load the emulator and set the
appropriate MIDI parameters (Appendix A – Supported Hardware, 
/:MPU:330 is the command for MPU-401 using port 330 which VDMSound sez
it uses).  It was still beyond me.

I don't remember what my Overtone  version number was but I think it
must've been an earlier one. It's on 4.25 floppy.  I had become so
used to programming on the K5 itself that I don't remember using the
editing features that much. Perhaps the later versions had more
features and were more useful?  I need it for the library feature
alone,  I presently have no backup for my internal patches. Somebody
stepped on my card a few years back. 

-John

P.S. that Cameleon Software sounds very interesting BTW.

Re : greetings

You don't need to keep the /:MPU:330 in your batch
file. With this version you just start it with it once
and it works.

To detect the K5, make sure that in the K5's MIDI
config menu Exclusive TRS and RCV are set to ON before
starting Overtone if you haven't used it for a long
time. 

The changes are listed in the read.me file. It's
mostly bug fixes and more interfaces support. My
version is also on 4x 5¼" floppies. (Yes, I still have
a working 5¼" drive in my computer. Stole it from an
XT when the HDD died.)

Also I don't think it works directly in Windows. In my
case, I have to boot in DOS mode.(No such thing under
XP tho) You could use a DOS emulator also. I think the
name is DOSbox.

Re: RE : greetings

Hello Mr. Deshenes and the group;
    Sorry I don't know the version of Syntonyx Overtone DOS editor.  I 
don't use it anymore.  But I do know that it was a good editor when I 
was using it.
    I'm currently using Midiquest Editor/Librarian V. 7.0.  I have all 
the Syntonyx files ported over to that librarian.  But I had a problem 
connecting via MIDI to my K5M.  I should pass this on to group members.

    I'm using an MAudio midisport 2X2 USB MIDI interface.  The interface 
works fine for connecting up the K5m.  However, I'm using USB 1.0, I've 
only got one USB port on my laptop, and so I'm using a USB hub.  The hub 
appears to prevent my Librarian from talking to the K5m.  When I went 
direct from laptop to MIDI interface with no hub in between, everything 
was fine. 

    Thought I'd pass it along.

RE : Re: RE : greetings

If you have a self-powered hub you will have some
problems with everything bi-directional. You need an
externally powered hub.

For other problems maybe that upgrading the OS to V
1.3 (For K5) or 1.2 (For K5m) can solve some problems.
