  M50 Computer Editor V1.1.0  



  Sounds: M50 Pro Vintage Keys  

This collection of 32 classic keyboard sounds was programmed by Jack Hotop to provide more expressive, natural sounding programs, with improved velocity switching (up to 8-way switching!). Constantly referring to classic recordings by top artists across many genres of music, special attention was paid to Controller Modeling for accurate Stereo Panning, Tremolo, Key Off, String Muting, and Tone Control.

Likewise, custom vintage FX assignments like Phase Shifter, Stereo Vintage Wah, Flanging, Stereo Tube PreAmp, Distortion, Ring Mod, Tape Echo, Reverb & more were designed to get the classic settings heard on the recordings that shaped the legacy of these timeless instruments.

Pad assignments, Arps & Drum Track grooves are provided for every sound.

M50 program locations: E096-E0127

Both PCG and Editor files are provided. For the Editor file you must select a BANK File, not an ALL file to be able to load them. This way you can load a complete single Bank rather than the whole state of your keyboard. For more info read the manual that came with your editor file.


These files require version 1.10 or higher.
