What is it?

ZeeEdit-FS1R is a MIDI editor for the Yamaha FS1R synthesizer. It is a computer program which communicates with the device over MIDI: it enables the synthesizer parameters visualization and direct edition on your computer screen.

You should not edit anything on the device itself anymore. That's because the computer keeps the device state and memory content to avoid waiting times (cache memory). It must be the center point of any change. If you do some editing on the hardware, the computer will not be aware of it and displayed information may not be relevant anymore.

Main features

Advanced features



Download the installation program in the "Download" section. When the download is complete, run the installer (the downloaded program). During the installation process, you may have options to choose from. If you do not understand them, just keep their default settings.

Once the installation is complete, you will be able to test the interface and to save and load sysex files but the communication with the device will be disabled. For a full-featured software, you have to buy a license in the "Buy" section.

How to use it?

First you must connect the device to the computer using MIDI cables. You should find MIDI plugs on your computer sound card or you may use a USB MIDI interface for example. The connection must be bi-directional. A cable connects the computer MIDI OUT to the device MIDI IN and a second cable connects the computer MIDI IN to the device MIDI OUT.

Then run the program. You will find a quick help page on the System panel. You can access this panel any time by pressing F1 on your computer keyboard. This help page is quite short to remain easy to read. You can see it on the screenshot.
