I vaguely remember someone asking, a few days ago, about a about an editor for RD2000 for Windows. I am not sure if it was asked on PW or elsewhere though.

I was aware of an editor somebody created for MIDI designer, but it is for iPad.

I was considering, as a toy project, doing something in Python. It might be an incentive to learning the language, honing my OOP skils and (hopefully) having a useful product in the process.

While in the process of researching about frameworks for the GUI and the MIDI layers and looking for information on the RD's SYSEX, I stumbled upon this page, that has a user manual and a link to a zip archive with an installer (http://www.stuartpryer.co.uk/Release2.3.0.zip). I have checked the zip with Kaspersky and all seems well. I have not installed it yet though.

Based on a cursory look at the documentation, it looks promising. It includes controls to editing the piano sounds, which is the one thing that interests me most.

There is also a topic in Roland Clan forum started by the author.

I hope this may be helpful to some. I do not remember seing a post on this editor here in PW.

PS: I still may venture into the aforementioned Python toy project and make it open source.

I have been meaning to install his windows version... just never got around to it. I guess I am getting lazy about the RD 2000s bajillion configuration settings... kinda fell into a pattern of sounds I tweaked long ago.

Stuart's application is the only one I have seen. I haven't looked say in the last 6 months or so, but that was it as far as I could find. The RD 2000 is a complex machine that really requires a computer interface. I am shocked that Roland didn't build one..... the keyboard is way way too complex for that crappy little screen.

Let us know what you find....

If you unzip the source code and the author's license allows... drop it on github!

If you put a bluetooth midi interface into the midi in and out , you
can also use the roland piano designer app for iphone/ipad.
