New FS1r computer editor

Post by b3groover » Sun Sep 12, 2010 8:27 pm

I'm in no way associated with this company, but there's a new Windows based FS1r editor out there.

http://zeeedit.free.fr/?page=home

A bit pricey, but it looks great and very easy to use. I'll probably take the plunge soon. I love my FS1r but programming it from the unit is a pain and the free editor that's out there isn't very good.

At first glance I couldn't spot whether you have control over FSEQ data, you know, to use custom FSEQs which are infinitely more useful than those stupid built-in FSEQs.

This is good to know - "the most pwerful synthesizer in the world"!

At the moment I just rely on using a wavestation (which otherwise I'd have off-loaded long ago), to play mine and the vector stick to give extra control. There's an immediate interface between them, which is one of the best synth tricks I know.

But if I ever start using computers to make music this programme is on of the first things I'd work with.

So from what I can tell, the editor will only allow you to use preset FSEQ.

I think that's correct. I sent an email to the programmer concerning user FSEQs but have yet to hear back.

I use this editor which is nice for the Mac:

I wish there was a Mac version of this FSEQ editor, this looks cool:

Dang, I wish I could edit the FSEQ.

After many months of searching for a good deal I finally picked up an FS1R. I've only had it hooked up for a week, but after playing through a couple hundred presets I'm pretty happy.

I've downloaded the free editor, but haven't installed it yet. I took a look at the Zee Editor site yesterday. It's cosmetically very nice, but I'm wondering if it would be better than the free editor. Are there any problems with the free editor?

I'll need some more time with the current free ones before I consider buying it.

That said, my FS1R is going nowhere, so I will give it good consideration.


cheers,
Ian
