Howdy

With the launch of reface, we've got a bunch of new articles to help you get up and making music as quickly as possible. Check out this article from Bad Mister on the creative possibilities with MIDI Control and reface DX.

What's the first thing you want to do with your reface DX? Let us know and read the article here.

The links seem to point to a 403 error?

I would like to know how to control the other parameters like envelopes over midi. They are in sysex format.

I would like to know how to control the other parameters like envelopes over midi. They are in sysex format.

Controlling envelope parameters can differ depending on the reface engine. A reface CS, for example, like an analog synth, all oscillators go through a single ADSR so setting the envelope is simple and can be handled by regular cc (Control Change) messages.
cc73 Attack
cc75 Decay
cc79 Sustain
cc72 Release

On a reface DX, for example, each oscillator (called an Operator) includes its own Amplitude Envelope Generator, and therefore is more complicated to adjust. Yes, the four Rate and four Level parameters that control the AEG of an Operator are accessible via Parameter Change messages.

A reface DX "Parameter Change" message template is shown on page 6 of the Data List booklet:
F0 43 10 7F 1C 05 hh mm ll dd F7

The High/Mid/Low parameter values for the Rates and Levels are shown on page 9
dd is the Data Byte 0-127

Hello again - pardon me for being new to this whole MIDI game, but how would I access those AEG parameters? I use a Novation Launch Control XL and Propellerheads Reason. I control the DX through Reason which only seems to give me access to cc's. Thanks
