Boutique MIDI Converter
The Roland Boutique synths are great little devices, the MIDI implementation is however a bit flawed. With this tool for Windows you can automate the sliders and knobs on the Boutique synths from your DAW using simple CC messages or use the Boutique synths as MIDI controllers for Arturia Jupiter-8V or TAL U-NO LX or other VST instruments.
The CC numbers used for the JX-03 are the same as the ones used for the Organix JX-3P MIDI Expansion Kit so it might just be possible to program the JX-3P with the JX-03 if you have that expansion and this tool, this is however untested at the moment.
- Conversion of Sysex – CC in both directions (you can choose to have only one direction enabled).
- Filter out Start and Continue messages from your DAW so the internal sequencers on the Boutique synths won’t start.
- Convert Channel Aftertouch to Modulation CC.
- Works with all three Boutique synths at the same time.
- Can also be used without a DAW (MIDI will just go through a MIDI interface on the computer, converted and sent out)
- Runs minimized in system tray and can be automatically started with Windows.
Boutique MIDI Converter works for 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and newer. The program has been tested working in FL Studio 12, Sonar X3, Ableton Live 9 and Cubase but should work for any DAW.
The Boutique synths need to be connected to their hardware MIDI ports, connecting the Boutiques over USB will not work since sysex is not sent nor received over MIDI USB of the Boutique synths.
Get the limited demo version HERE to see if it works on your machine. The only limitation in the demo version is the lack of conversion for filter cutoff and resonance. If you find it usable you can get the full version by sending me a Paypal donation (see below).
