LASER Mammoth is a browser based SysEx Librarian

Post by solitud » Sat Jun 18, 2016 4:52 pm

I have developed a MIDI SysEx librarian which works in the browser.
It was meant for my own use, but a friend liked it and encouraged me to polish it some more and release it to the public, so here it is:
F0F7 - Codename LASER Mammoth let's you reorder, rename, delete, transfer and share your synthesizer programs.
  • it's SysEx in the browser
  • it works in Chrome and Opera
  • nothing to install
  • it's free
Be careful though:
it's beta and can delete all your sounds. If your programs are super important consider to make a backup with an alternative software first.

Already supported:
  • Access Virus
  • Casio CZ-101 / CZ-1000
  • Clavia Nordlead
  • Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolver
  • Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 08
  • Moog Voyager
  • Novation Bass Station 2
  • Roland JD 800
  • Sequential Prophet 6
  • Strymon Timeline
  • Waldorf Music Blofeld
Glad to hear some feedback!
What other synths do you like to see? What do you think?

This is cool! Access Virus... Would this work with the TI? ( I suppose I could just try it, although there is the risk of patch loss). Any support for the Fizmo, M1, or Tx81z?
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

It should, but I am not 100% sure. TI is compatible to the older Viruses sound formats.
I have tested it with an Indigo 2 which is a Virus C.

As long as you don't hit the red "Overwrite Bank" button you should be save.

The project is very new and it is even not sure if anyone will use it. But if there is the tendency for one synths I will try to support it for sure.

Just a quick question...it wasn't clear to me where the banks actually get stored.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Yikes! You might want to post links to the more basic alternatives out there so people know what tools to use to backup their data before trying your librarian. Good luck with everything!

When you have an account and click "Save to My Banks" the patches are saved in a database on the server.
But you don't have to save anything if you don't want that.
When you just click "Request Programs", rename and reorder sounds and send them back to your synth nothing is stored at all in the librarian or on the server. You don't even have to register for that ...

You are right, that should be clearer.
Better save than sorry, although the warning may be a bit too dramatic because the librarian is not unsafer than any other Sysex Librarian.
The only dangerous function is "Overwrite Bank".
If you send programs with a librarian to a synth the existing sounds will be replaced. That's the intended function.

Nice to see CZ-101 support! I'd like to see Roland D50, Ensoniq ESQ-1, and Roland JX8P be added mostly.

I think a SysEx cloud is a great idea. People are generally lazy when it comes to sharing their patches.
