Cakewalk Instrument Definition INS File For JD-X1

Postby happyrat1 » 16:24, 26 March 2016

Hi all,

I have a Roland JD-XI on order arriving next week and I'd like to integrate it into my home studio.

I do my sequencing on Cakewalk Music Creator and Cakewalk Home Studio 9.01 running under Linux WINE Windows Emulator..

What I am looking for is a proper Cakewalk Instrument Definitions File for the JD-XI.

Frankly I don't care if it was community created or if it's available as a direct download from Cakewalk or Roland, as long as it works.

Considering that Roland actually owns Cakewalk and since the JD-XI has been around for over a year now, I don't think I'm asking for the impossible here.

I have minimal experience creating my own INS files and I'd really rather not deal with the hassle of rolling my own if someone else has already done this for us.

Any input on where to locate such a file would be welcomed with open arms.

Thanks for listening,

Gary ;)

PS. I saw a similar thread here from a year ago with no replies.

Hopefully by now someone will have come up with a solution.

Good news folks.

After two days of blood, sweat, tears, hairpulling and debugging I've created a mostly working Cakewalk INS file for the JD-Xi.

All that's missing are the controllers and the drum voice maps.

If anyone else wants to add those be my guest.

For the most part though, it will allow you to sequence your projects on any Cakewalk DAW with minimum grief.

No applause please. Just throw money :D

File is attached.

Thanks for that fella!

Its early days for me but I'm still trying to figure out how you would call up Techno Kit 3 directly? Its Program A02 but isn't one of thee 33 kits listed. I assume that is the same sounds as Techno Kit 1 (or 2, or indeed they are all the same) but with different Effects applied to them.

The sound/program/tones list are just as frustrating!

Cheers, Liam.

Unfortunately my studio is currently all packed up and away with an impending move in a few months so I can't access my gear at the moment.

Hopefully someone else will step up and explain it in the meantime.

Otherwise it may end up taking me a while to get back to you on this.

Recently edited and upgraded the file. Removed a bunch of illegal characters from the voice names that were screwing up the sequences.

Hopefully this one will work better.

Still not sure if Roland Firmware Upgrade 1.5x screwed up the filenames or not though.

seems to be mostly working properly now though.
