LIBRARIAN EDIT MENUS

This chapter contains a lot, so let’s break it down a bit. When Librarian View is set to PATCH BANK mode, Bank Edit menu contains different elements compared to PERFORMANCE BANK mode.

I.e., You can write SINGLE patches to a certain RAM bank in hardware, whereas in PERFORMANCE mode, there is only one destination available for data write.

We will cover PATCH MODE functions from the menu first and compare those to PERFORMANCE MODE functions in the context.

After BANK functions are done with, we will check how to import banks to Librarian and how to save banks to HDD. There is also some helpful actions in the menu as well.

Let’s begin!

BANK EDIT menu overview

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.

JP-80×0 Editor User Manual – Bank Edit Menu

There are different segments in the menu to keep functions in order:

  • Request Patch / Performance Data…
  • Store Patch / Performance Data…
  • Sync Current Data from HW
  • Push Current Performance to HW

Functions above represents hardware to software and software to hardware specific commands.

  • Save (Overwrite current bank)
  • Save As…
  • Import…
  • Refresh Folders

Functions above are HDD to librarian and librarian to HDD specific commands. Rest of the functions are not relevant to Librarian usage, and we will discuss them later in the manual.

Request PATCH Data from Hardware

Open BANK EDIT menu and select Request Patch Data… [1] item from the menu. This will open a sub menu, with different request options:

[2] 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.

[3] from Active Layer to Librarian

  • Requests temporary Patch data from currently active layer on plug-in user interface to active slot in the librarian view.
    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.

[4] 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

[5] All Patches from RAM A … B (*)

  • 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.

    JP-80×0 Editor User Manual – Request Patch Data Options

    Store PATCH Data to Hardware

    Open BANK EDIT menu and select Store Patch Data… [1] item from the menu. This will open a sub menu, with different storing options:

    [2] To Currently Selected Slot & Bank

    • Store selected librarian slot patch to hardware memory based on currently selected STORE DATA TO value.
      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

    [3] from Selected Bank to RAM A … B (*)

    • Store all patches from currently active Librarian list 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-80×0 Editor User Manual – Store Patch Data Options

    TIP #6: You can toggle on Search filter on the Librarian and store search result patches to the hardware memory if you wish to do so! Just remember to make the lower list active before storing data.

    TIP #7: Do not disturb the data flow while writing is in progress. Let it complete the write task and start your tweaks after it is finished.

    Request PERFORMANCE Data from Hardware

    When Librarian View is in PERFORMANCE MODE [1], open BANK EDIT menu and you can see that it has different items compared to PATCH MODE. Select Request Performance Data… [1] item from the menu. This will open a sub menu, with different request options:

    [3] from Temp Buffer to Plug-in GUI

    • Requests temporary Performance data from the JP’s memory buffer to the plug-in user interface.
      Works like Sync Current Data from HW but without System specific settings.

    [4] from Temp Buffer to Librarian

    • Requests temporary Performance data from plug-in user interface to currently selected librarian slot.

    [5] from Selected Program Slot

    • Requests Performance data from hardware 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:” from REQ DATA FROM is selected, program number 1 from JP bank 0 will be requested. In other words; U:11

    [6] All Performances from Selected Bank

    • Requests all Performance programs from currently selected REQ DATA FROM bank location.
      Example: If REQ DATA FROM “User Bank U:” is selected, then all 64 programs from that bank will be requested to librarian.

    • Store selected librarian slot performance to hardware memory based on currently selected STORE DATA TO value.
      Ie: If “slot 11” and STORE DATA TO “U:11 – U:88” is selected, program number 1 will be overwritten in that bank location. In other words; U:11

    [3] All Performances from Current Bank

    • Store all performances from currently active Librarian list to currently selected STORE DATA TO bank destination in JP.
