LIBRARIAN EDIT MENUS

Working with Patches and Performances

In this part we are going to explain the different functions of the librarian BANK EDIT MENU, RIGHT CLICK MENU & Dran’g’drop. You can easily request, store and manage your files and access other useful functions like importing data, registering the plug-in etc.

BANK EDIT MENU [1] is only accessible in the BROWSER view. Bank Edit menu content varies based on the currently selected LIBRARIAN MODE [2]. We will cover Single Patch Mode first with request and store functions and all of the other general functions as well. Performance Mode will follow after that.

Bank Edit Menu (Single Patch Mode)

Request Patch Data

  • from Active Layer to Plug-in GUI
    • Requests temporary Patch data from JP based on which layer is currently active on the plug-in – to the plug-in user interface.
      Example: If plug-in has lower layer selected when the request is made, then plug-in will make a request to JP’s lower layer and will get its data to the user interface.
  • from Active Layer to Librarian
    • Requests temporary Patch data from currently active layer on plug-in user interface to currently selected librarian slot.
      Example: If lower layer is active in plug-in user interface, patch data from lower layer is going to be requested to Librarian slot which is currently selected.
  • from Selected Program Slot
    • Requests Patch data from JP memory based on the currently selected Librarian slot and current REQ DATA FROM selection.
      Example: If “slot 11” in librarian view and “User Bank U:A” from REQ DATA FROM is selected, program number 1 from JP bank 0 will be requested. In other words; U:A11
  • All Patches from Selected Bank
    • Requests all Patch programs from currently selected REQ DATA FROM bank location.
      Example: If REQ DATA FROM “User Bank U:B” is selected, then all 64 programs from that bank will be requested to librarian.

NOTE #1 All librarian data requests will be made to the left Patch / Performance program view window as explained earlier!


 

Store Patch Data

  • To Currently Selected Slot & Bank
    • Writes selected librarian slot patch to currently selected STORE DATA TO slot in JP’s memory.
      Ie: If “slot 11” and STORE DATA TO “U A:11 – A:88” is selected, program number 1 will be overwritten in that bank location. In other words; U:A11
  • All Patches from Current Bank
    • Writes all patches from active bank to currently selected STORE DATA TO bank destination in JP.
      Example: If “U A:11 – A:88” is selected, all patches will be overwritten in that bank location.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus store data

 

NOTE #1: Bank from active program view will be used to send data to JP. So, if you have active slot selection in right Patch program view, then single Patch or all Patches from right Patch program view will be written to your JP depending which option you choose from the Bank Edit Menu.

TIP #1: If you have search active and you have some search results in the list, those search results can be stored to hardware too!


 

Sync Current Data From HW

  • This option will request the entire Performance and System settings from your JP to the plug-in user interface. Acts like “SYNC DATA FROM HW” button.

Register Plug-in… / REGISTERED

  • If you installed FULL version of our plug-in, you must register the plug-in in order to make total recall work and to be able to write data to your synthesizer. A new dialog will open when Register Plug-in… is chosen so you can locate the license.key. Once you have selected your license.key and confirmed it, remove the plug-in from the instrument channel and reload it. Now the plug-in will indicate that the plug-in is REGISTERED. If not, head down to our support pages and contact support immediately!

NOTE #3: If you want to learn how other menu items work, check the Bank Edit Menu (Single Patch Mode) section for the other functions as they work the same regardless to the mode of Librarian.


 

Right Click menu

In this section we are gonna go through how to use the right click menu functions in the librarian.

Copy & Paste

Use the right Patch / Performance program view to copy content to your plug-in clipboard. Menu will open up once you click right mouse button. You can not paste or otherwise manipulate data on the right view at all, it is one way operation.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus right click copy

 

To Paste data, click any of the program slots in left view and right click to choose operation, in this case Paste. See image below.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus right click paste

 


 

Rename Patch / Performance

To rename a Patch or Performance in Librarian view, you must right click, choose Rename and a new window will appear where you can input your desired program name. Once new name is in, click enter to apply. If this is your first rename, then Discard button will lit up indicating that your bank has been modified. Overwrite your bank or Save As a new bank.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus right click rename

 


 

Initialize Slot

Initialize Slot will initialize the current librarian slot to “default” patch / performance. You can then rename it if you wish or send it to your hardware with double clicking the item.

Again, discard button will be lit up indicating your bank has been modified. Continue with edits, overwrite or save bank as.

Get Data From…

  • Plug-in (active patch)
    Requests active Patch / Performance from plug-in user interface to selected librarian slot.
  • Hardware Edit Buffer
    Requests active Patch / Performance from JP to selected librarian slot.
  • Hardware by Prog No.
    Requests Patch / Performance from JP’s memory location determined by the slot number.

Drag’n’Drop

To copy & paste data faster than using the right click menu, you can also drag’n’drop patches / performances in the librarian view. See image below where I am dragging Megalead 3000 MS from right program view to left program view. While dragging is ongoing, you will see the light gray box indicating where your mouse is positioned. Once you let go, it will place the selected data to that location.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus drag and drop

 

Once drag’n’drop is done, you can see how Megalead 3000 MS is now on left program view slot 12 [1] and Discard[2] button is lit to indicate that you have unsaved changes in your bank.

jp-80x0 librarian edit menus drag and drop

 

Note #1: Patches and Performances can be dragged only from RIGHT list to LEFT list. No limitations in location, just the fact that dragging works from Right to Left.

Note #2: You can change patch / performance bank in RIGHT list as you go along with your bank customization.

Note #3: After drag and drop is complete, Discard button will be lit up indicating that the current bank has been changed. Now you can overwrite or save as under a desired name.
