I'm a .Net developer myself. I went on a vacation over Thanksgiving thinking that I would write an editor when I got back. You beat me to it and probably did a nicer job than I would have! Very, very nice. I have about a hundred feature requests! Again, really, really nice.
Awesome. It was so frustrating that Line 6 released an update that basically nobody could use. Why their engineers couldn't have released the update WITH an editor is beyond me. MidiOX did nothing but send a stream of nonsense to my amp, causing a ticking sound and flickering lights. Totally unusable for human beings.
I have a Mobilizer II on the way, but am used to using a PC. Can't wait to try this when I get home from work.
I've only had my DT50 for a few weeks. Sounds so great with my HD500. If only I hadn't broken the pathetically weak preset knob on the HD500, making it unusable without a computer.
THANK YOU ROLLO! I've just installed and toyed around with it and what a breeze! Just a quick report that everything works smoothly, intuitively - goodbye MIDI OX! I'll surely play around with it more in time but I just wanted to add my thanks immediately for your work!
Looks really good. Too bad I can't use it yet (MAC user).
I have a few questions:
- The project page screen shot shows Volume dial in the Master section. Does this really work? I did not see any MIDI control documented for it.
- Are the I,II,III,IV selection in the Preamp A and B sections select the program slot, i.e., the channel/voicing combo's 0-7 as Line 6 labeled them?
- Are the I,II,III,IV selection in the Poweramp A and B sections select the voicings used when this channel is selected? If yes, maybe Voicings (as Line 6 calls them) would be a better label?
Great contribution like many said before. I looking forward to using it in the future.
the master does indeed work, but only in one direction. If you move the master knob on the amp then the knob on the screen will follow. But it looks like it's not possible to control the master knob on the amp over MIDI. I guess this is disabled for security reasons as you could accidently fry your ears just by sending the wrong MIDI message. The CC number for the knob is 20 btw.
The numbered switches in the preamp and poweramp sections control two different things.
The ones in the preamp area switch between the "presets" of the channel just like the real I-II-III-IV switch on the amp.
The four switches in the poweramp area represent four different feedback modes of the poweramp. The manual calls this setting "Topology / Negative Feedback Loop" and the four possible values are called "I - Tight", "II - Loose", "III - Zero Negative Feedback" and "IV - Resonant". I don't know what actually happens inside the poweramp but there is some switching going on and the settings sound different too.
Today I've tried DT Edit and I really like it, it saved me from some quality time with MIDI-OX I hope you've going to implement loading and saving in near future so we can share our favorite amp settings with other DT users!
Once again thanks for this!
I finally got chance to play with this some more today, main reason was that I wanted to see what it would report back about the "out of the box" settings (as i'm still having trouble getting my HD500 to nail the sounds I can get from the standalone amp so was looking for clues).
What I saw was:
I - Blackface Double Norm.
II - Brit P-75 Bright
III - Class A-30
IV - Treadplate
What suprised me was that I was expecting to see no cab models, but the A-30 and Treadplate used a 2x12 Silver Bell and4x12 Tread V-30 respectively.
Is this what other people have seen?
and thanks for all the kind words.
I had some time in the last few days and so I updated the editor with a new user interface. Now it it looks a lot more pleasing to the eyes and not like an office application anymore.
There is not much new functionality in this release as I've still haven't heard anything from Line6. But I've changed the installer to a different system to get rid of the false alarms that some virus programs created. I've never found out what they didn't like but with the new system it shouldn't happen anymore.
This is exactly, what i was wondering! I dialed a great Rectifier sound to my DT50 and wanted to make it as my main tone for Pod Hd500 and add some pedals to it too. After little tweaking, i manage to get that sound. But i had to enable Cab sim to achive the same sound. The amp settings are same in pod hd500 as they were in DT50.
I think this is how DT50 has it amps setup as default.
