Hi there all,
I am working on a hardware and software retrofit kit to go into the Korg Poly 800 and EX 800 that will improve the sysex implementation and also add a whole stack of new features as well as new sound capabilities based on the FM 800 mod and Moog Slayer mods. I'm doing this mostly for fun as a hobby and also to keep a great instrument alive and kicking in an increasingly VST world.
At this point, I've disassembled and rewritten most of the EX800 8K ROM. I've added numerous new sysex commands that give the EX800 patch bank updates, scratch memory sysex control and more. That's something that the original Poly and EX800 never had.
I've downloaded Eclipse, pulled down the latest Jsynthlib from the CVS repository. But because I'm no Eclipse pro, I'm not sure how to copy an existing synth driver and set it up in Eclipse so that I can edit it for the new EX800.
Would someone be able to walk me through this? I know this might be simple stuff to you all, but I'm an old school coder (ie: 80C85, Z80 and CPM) and it just isn't immediately obvious to me.
Also, why is this list so quiet? Is it because we are just a dying breed of hacker?
Hope not and many thanks,
