CTRLR will change your synth editing life!

I am a little bit obsessed with programming my Korg DSS-1. I have used hardware which sends SYSEX, Logic editors, Ableton with Clyphx, and have recently built my own editor in CTRLR.

CTRLR, is a platform for both PC and Mac which allows you to create GUI interfaces to create and manipulate midi and SYSEX information. It can be run as either a stand-alone program or as a plugin in your DAW of choice. This software rocks!

I created an interface to work with the Korg DSS-1, and I would love your input an assistance to make it even better, or you can just download it and use it as-is.

A few caveats about the editor…
1. There are two variation: One DSS-1 for the standard DSS-1, One DSS-1X for the upgraded Tom Virostek model with 16mb.
2. Make sure that the DSS-1 is in play mode (Program Parameter should not be highlighted)
3. The DSS-1 has a glitch in it. When altering the time on the DDL-2, the value is recognized, but it doesn’t seem to “catch” until you edit on the DSS-1. So you will have to set the value via CTRLR, then press Program Parameter on the DSS-1. Select 92, and then I typically adjust the value up one, then back down by one. Press Program Parameter to get back out of editing mode, and everything should be fine.
