what version of ableton live do you have? there is this editor (thats actually meant to be remotely controlled by touchOSC on ipad) for max4live that i use. ive mapped some basic parameters across my edirol controller and it gets the job done. just remember to turn the sysex on in the JX-8P midi Params :thumbright:

No idea if it still works or not, but worth a try…

Problem is most editors were first developed for OSes that existed when that synth was still relatively new...DOS, early Windows and Mac, Amiga, Atari ST, etc.

The curse of vintage synths being used with computers :oops:

What I did 8 years ago when faced with this problem: bought the cheapest Windows laptop that BestBuy had in the store and used that to run editors that were Windows only.

Good luck.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
