Obtaining Vycro MX Performance Editor software

Unread post by Airlane »

I've just noticed I could use this free software but the site (http://vycromx.com/) from which it's downloadable is dead. Does anyone know of another source to obtain it?

Hi,

Just spend some time searching. Vycro.com seems to be up for sale . . . allegedly since Feb. 2019.

Unfortunately, ALL the references I found point there . . . . . There seems to be no other source.

If anyone has contact details of the author we could try and get permission to host it?

Was it freeware or bought SW? There seems to have been a "Pro" version too - so I suspect it's bought SW.

Maybe someone in here has a copy - with the name of the author?

Problem is that the email addy will doubtless be joe blogs at Vycro.com . . . . . :roll:

I have both Vycro MX and John Melas software. They both do the job. Vycro MX is nicer looking and a little more user friendly, so it would be really nice if Yamaha gets a deal to manage a distribution of the Vycro software. The Psicraft NEWS page hasn't been updated since 2013. They have done work behind the scenes since 2013, such as when the Vycro MX Pro was made free, but nothing really publicly available otherwise. And now the download page is gone and has been for close to two months.

Meanwhile, I've been suggesting people look at the John Melas software.

There's a Yamaha Guitar around here somewhere too... ;-)

Shame to see this has disappeared from the web. I can understand domains being given up occasionally but this was an incredibly useful piece of software. Yamaha seemed to thinks so...although obviously not enough to put some cash behind it. Why does that not surprise me :/:

Anyway have dropped the author a line and hopefully, he will get back to me soon (Y)

Sad that it has gone because it is a useful bit of kit. However it is only for working on Performances, and a major advantage is that you can save each performance as a file, and therefore build up a library of performances which you can upload to the keyboard as the need arises. It also therfore acts as a back-up should you need to reset the entire keyboard.

The John Melas software is much more comprehensive, allowing you to edit individual voices down to really fine details. I discovered that each voice has up to 8 individual elements, with each element being a synth "voice" in its own right, with waveform, VCF, VCA, LFOs, effects, pitch envelopes and loads and loads more. The actual level of programming you can achieve is awesome, especially is this is on a keyboard that only costs £500. Amazing! You do have to buy the software, but it is a relatively small amount, especially for what it gives you.

Go for it!

PS: I do not have any vested interests in the software package, I am just bowled over (a) by the MX61 itself, and (b) what you can do when you have this software!

Couldn't agree more Sausagefingers (Y)

With John Melas software it opens the MX up and shows just how much of a powerful synth is hidden under the hood. This is far more than just a rompler. You can create some pretty amazing sounds with the MX.

I have no hesitation in recommending John Melas software editor. In fact, I would say it is essential for every MX owner who wants to get the best out of there keyboard :)

Found a copy of the WIndows install on an old hard drive.
As it's abandonware, I'll host it on my site as long as they let me.

I think that's the original free version. I have a copy of the Pro version, which was later made freely available. I thought I had a copy of the Mac version, but my old computer had a hard drive crash last year, and I haven't found it yet on my USB flash drives or external backup drive.

Just found this forum on Google and I would like to share the Vycro MX software that I have

I bought the Pro version and some months later it became free. This is the Pro version (1.12) distributed for free by the devs themselves (this information is shown in the begining of the installation, see the image). I think that the developers turned it as a freeware software because they were about to end their activities.

Here is the Google Drive link

Hope it helps.
