What is Alpha Juno Contol?
Great question, glad you asked. :) Well, for the five years that I've owned my Alpha Juno, I've loved the sounds it produces but have always detested its editting method. I mean, the LED display is nice and all, but using the Alpha Dial to get everywhere just drove me nuts. So I coded Alpha Juno Control. In short, Alpha Juno Control is a small utility app that will let owners of Roland's Alpha Juno keyboard control patch parameters via MIDI from their beloved Mac's (OS X).
Setting up your Juno:
Important Note: You must enable your Alpha Juno to receive system exclusive messages. This can be done by pressing the MIDI button six(6) times until the LED reads:
MIDI EXCL: OFF
Now rotate the alpha dial until the LED reads:
MIDI EXCL: ON
Now save this setting: Press and hold WRITE, then press MIDI again.
New in this version
- There are many new features but the coolest feature is the ability to map incoming control changes (CC messages) to the onscreen sliders.
