VIRTUAL ACCESS PROGRAMMER FOR WALDORF MICROWAVE


This software is a Virtual ACCESS synthesizer programmer for use with the Waldorf Microwave synthesizer.     It emulates the ACCESS hardware editor in a software environment within the APPLE LOGIC audio / sequencer program (formerly Emagic Logic).     To use this software you MUST have a valid copy of LOGIC on your computer (see below) as well as a MIDI interface which connects your computer via MIDI cable to your hardware synthesizer.

This software CANNOT be used as a stand alone application under any circumstances.     It will NOT run in Ableton, Reason, VST or any other host - it is not a plug-in but a single importable layer of the Logic environment.

Upon purchase, you will ultimately receive a ZIP archive of the editor you purchased for Logic.     UNZIP this archive and you will have a LOGIC song document you can now open in the Logic program (Mac v8-9 and vX are supplied - please request special version if needed).      Once open, you will see the editor on your screen and you can then discover the pleasures of a Virtual ACCESS programmer for your MICROWAVE synthesizer!

NOW FULLY LOGIC X COMPATIBLE!       Logic X upgrades have been ported to earlier versions.    Previous buyers may contact me here for free upgrade to any version v4 - 9.



OVERVIEW:


This editor is physically laid out to emulate the ACCESS MICROWAVE hardware programmer (circa 1995).    If you're familiar with the ACCESS hardware programmer then you should feel comfortable with the layout.     I've adopted certain changes for the better such as adding all the additional Microwave voice parameters that the ACCESS lacks and including a RESET function.   

Important things for voice programming such as the modulation routings, pan, temperament scales, portamento, and all the rest have been included here.      Every other voice parameter that the Microwave can respond to - is present on a second programmer page.     Page 1 will lay out similar to the ACCESS programmer and Page 2 acts as an adjunct to that (please see the included photos to understand the layout).

This programmer does AMAZING things to open up the sound of the deep and complex MICROWAVE - way beyond what you have heard from the presets.    I am constantly blown away by how great this synth is with hand's on control for all the deep parameters available on the synth that the front panel can also access - but not quickly and intuitively.

I should also comment on how bullet-proof the MICROWAVE synth is when throwing lots of SYSEX data at it as in the case from this editor.    The MICROWAVE performs smoothly and effortlessly even with large amounts of data received - so sweep away and go crazy with the LIVE possibilities - it is wonderful!

This editor will work guaranteed with version 1.25 or 2.0 of the Microwave firmware -- and possibly earlier versions also that I have not been able to test with.     All v2 parameters will be ignored by a v1.25 synth.

******NOTE:   You can ONLY program one MICROWAVE sound at a time with this programmer.    It does not offer the MULTI-TIMBRAL editing that the ACCESS programmer offers.    You may program a SINGLE patch or MIDI channel 1 in MULTI mode.

All real time moves are recordable by the Logic sequencer for repeatable real time changes on playback - or you can automate using HYPERDRAW.     You may also remotely control these SYSEX faders and buttons via a hardware control surface if you take the time to tailor the controls to suit your individual hardware.     This is not difficult to do and needs only be done once and then saved for future sessions.

This programmer resides in two layers of the LOGIC environment hierarchy - and is importable to your personal AUTOLOAD song (notes on how to do so are also included).    It is not a plug-in, but a page in the environment which can be imported into your song documents or run alongside your current work simultaneously as a second song.

Detailed documents are included with your purchase and cover all aspects of usage - both remedial and advanced.



SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:


This editor is brand new but is still compatible with many different versions of Logic starting with Emagic MAC Version 4.x.     It is compatible with ALL versions of Logic through vX.     It is also compatible with Logic Express v7 - 9.     If you have a version 8 Logic you must use v 8.01 or higher which fixes a SYSEX bug that renders v8.0 inoperable.

This editor is also compatible with the v4 - v6 PC versions of Logic (please specify upon purchase).      In all v5's - it is compatible down to Logic SILVER.     NOT compatible with Micro-Logic or any of the other earlier neutered Emagic bundled versions.

This editor is designed to fit on one screen with a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or larger but will also work on smaller screens.     You can set up a screenset for larger monitors that will accommodate both Page 1 and Page 2 simultaneously if you choose.



TERMS and CONDITIONS:



Free Delivery is included with purchase.     Delivery is by EMAIL ATTACHMENT ONLY - and will be delivered ASAP after payment has cleared.
