Hello.

Since the load of sounds in the flash board is very slow, and obviously there is a limit of space and files, I was looking for the fastest way to choose the files.

Is this the correct way?

1) Load a library in the flash board
2) Listen to it and note down which are the files that you want to save permanently.
3) Save the file in the usb stick
3) Open the file in John Melas Waveform editor and delete all the files which you don't want.
4) Save the file and load it into the keyboard.

Is there a fastest way with or without John Melas Waveform editor?



And one more quiestion... Is there something that John Melas Editors are able to do but Moxf Editor or the moxf (the keyboard itself) is not able to do in terms of sound editing? I know the advantages of John Melas Waveform Editor, but I have been trying the other editors, and I don't find more advantages than the comfort of not having to fight with the small screen of the keyboard or the possibility of copy and paste values and moving files.


Thanks in advance.

Sorry, the words "fastest" and "Flash" in the same question will always cause the following warning: Do not attempt to make changes in your instrument Read Only Memory (Wave Library) installation unless you have set aside enough time to relax and finish the task. If you are at all in a hurry wait for a time when rushing is not going to be a factor.

The operation of properly creating your own User Waveform list will ultimately reward you with the time-saving availability to your favorite MOXF data. Burning data to a FLASH is a time consuming process and should not be done when thinking about speed, rather concentrate on accuracy. What you are in affect doing is creating your own "permanent" additions to the AWM2 Waveform List. Yamaha gives 3,977 Factory Waveforms, you get to add your own 2,048 User Waveforms from which you will construct your own sound selections.

The beauty of the John Melas Motif Waveforms Editor, is it allows you to construct the MOXF File on your computer. It makes moving data incredibly easy and once you have constructed your data with it, you will never do it any other way. Making selections and manipulating Program relationships is all handled by the software.

Doing it manually will earn you MOXF Jedi Merit Badges for perserverence and proof of understanding the concept...
Doing it using the Waveform Editor and Melas tools, is most certainly the preferred method, because you are working offline, creating the data, and then you simply have to Load the finished product. It doesn't mean you don't have understand the concepts, you do, but the best endorsement one can give it is: Once you've used the Waveform Editor, you'll never do the task manually again. Period. And you wind up telling your friends!

Thanks.

There was a problem... I open this thread because I thought it was not possible to listen the libraries in John Melas Waveform editor, because the two libraries which I opened yestereday didn't sound (cp1 and chickmk5, both in .x3a). I opened now a .x6a librarie and it sounds.

So the correct way, as you say is to do all offline.

Is there a problem with that files or waveform editor is not able to extract the waveforms from an .x3a? (it recognise the files, but there is not any waveform in the keybanks).

edit

Also doesn't recognise the waveforms in Ultimatepiano, an .x6a file.

Reasons? or i do something wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Ok, I have seen that the problem may be that in that libraries (chickmk5, cp1 and ultimatepiano) the waveform has WXC format.

It seems that John Melas Waveform editor can read the files but not the waveforms in that format.

Any solution?

Thanks in advance.

edit


Well, WXC is a yamaha format that John Melas doesn't recognise.

In fact, in this thread (https://www.yamahasynth.com/forum/two-flash-bord-questions) Martin say that to handle this files with John Melas make the waveform to lose quality (so it is better to install this libraries in the traditional way).


Sorry for asking something which was already answered.
