anyone using Ctrlr on OSX to program their racks?

anyone using Ctrlr on OSX to program their racks synths?

looking for simple OSX Lion app for programming synths like D-550, TX802, JD990, ATC-1, Shruthi, TG77

midiquest sounds buggier than a hostel mattress, and all other editors are PC only

my only other option is to dig out a old win98 netbook+tascam midi interface and use that as a dedicated synth computer, but I don't even liek having 1 computer in my studio let alone a relic like that.

I use it for my jx-8p, which might as well be a rack unit considering it's interface

works great as an au...im on a 64-bit mac, OS X 10.7.5

never worked with the standalone unit but it's probably good too.

back in may when i got it there were a few lag issues but by the next update it was fixed. and even then that was minimal.

huge fan of Ctrlr, i always recommend it when i get the chance

soudns worth a shot at any rate, although they don't seem to have a template for D-550, which is largely what I want it for, that as maybe a TX802 at some point.

if i'm not mistaken i think there's manuals/tutorials on how to make custom interfaces. all you need to know is the midi setup of the synth

could be wrong though, but just a suggestion! might be a bit tedious to setup though

I use it on windows, basically the easiest thing to make templates for that I've ever used.

Is it possible to just use CTRLR to simply send patches to a synth via Sysex? And how would I go about that?

My idea is that I would like to save patches from my hardware and organize them inside of Maschine as channel-strips (called "Sounds" in Maschine lingo). This way I can find them with the Maschine software/controller by navigating through the library, e.g. Bass>Aggressive, Lead>Soft, etc.

I'm in the same boat and have also considered midi quest but was put off by the insane price and how buggy it was. I tried the demo and it was pretty bad. This is the latest version I'm talking about. I also own the D550 and TG77. I wish there were something more stable on the market. I'm sure the midi quest software could work well if the software was given to a few good programmers to debug and improve. It's a shame the way it stands. Looks like such a great program and then the more you learn about it the more you cringe and realize what a ripoff it is.

Is there any CTRLR expert here that can give any insight into this?

I never save my patches but ctrlr definitely allows sysex usage. My mks-7 uses sysex for most of its controls. I think it should be possible to save them though as like a preset for the vst.

Ctrlr looks very interesting. I plan to use it with my Tx 802 and also to buy an Mks 7 where I would need a program like that.
Does anybody know how to install this on a Mac with Logic X?
On ther website i can only find .exe or .sh files

thanks
