A way to use GM voices inside Ensemble parts
« on: November 29, 2020, 11:21:53 AM »
Hi friends,
is there a way to edit an .ENV file to "unlock" all the other preset/expansion voices? For example manually changing LSB/MSB of the linked voices into the .ENV file overwriting them with other ones that are not available on Genos default library?
Thanks
Francesco

EDIT: I've found a way to merge GM voices in Ensemble parts via MIDI. I set Genos MIDI receive channels like this:
Port1 Ch1 - Left
Port1 Ch2 - Right1
Port1 Ch3 - Right2
Port1 Ch4 - Right3

Next step: with Reaper MIDI control plugin I've selected the MSB 109 (Ensemble Voices Bank) and LSB 0. Now, if I change the program from 0 to 127, I have all GM voices inside the Ensemble parts ;)
As you can see on the attached picture, icon and name of the "intruder" voice are not available and replaced with a generic piano image, but all parameters work good.

Hi Francesco,

an .ENV file is not a (MIDI file based) Voice Set file like e.g. a .VCE file. In contrast, an .ENV file is something like a Registration file. But obviously it is also different to the .RGT format. Unfortunately, I don't know in which way an .ENV file could be opened or edited.


Best regards,
Chris

Everyone always said: "This is not possible!" - Then someone came and ... just did it!

Thank you Chris, so only a software upgrade could give us this new possibility...

I think the idea was to give us a selection on voices that suited Ensemble which as you know you can mix and edit within the programme.
