DESCRIPTION

This ensembles enables one to program the absolutely fabulous Ploytec PL2 synthesizer (http://www.ploytec.com/pl2/).
Every parameter is adjustable, and it is fully compatible with firmware update 2.0. This remote also enables the user to create a virtually unlimited amount of presets on the computer.

Apart from the hardware parameters there are also new options like controlling the LFO speed (by controlling the song tempo).
Intended future updates contains, amongst other features, computer side modulation (LFO/envelope) of the PL2's parameters.

Hope you enjoy, and please feel free to give me any feedback or suggest improvements or new features. Also if you enjoy it please leave a rating.

Correction I have Reaktor 5.8.0 and trying to force this remote to run actually crashed my entire computer which has never happened before today. The error states Error while reading Pl2_Remote_16.ens: this file was saver with a never version of Reaktor! Please update your software! Anyone else had this happen? I use Windows XP pro SP3 Embedded on a flash drive. No way to upgrade to Windows 7 as the flash drive would die prematurely with so many writes and the OS is too heavy for Music Embedded install.

I have had nothing but problems trying to open and use this on my computer. I have an EMBEDDED industrial fanless PC with Windows XP pro SP3 on a SSD flash drive. I have Reaktor 5.5.8 and when i try to load this I get a error that this was made with a newer version of Reaktor and Reaktor crashes. What version of Reaktor was this made with?

Hi there, couple of questions.. 1.. can i use this programmer with both versions of the PL2 (midi + USB). 2.. can i use 2 instances of this in my DAW (for example maschine) to program 2 different PL2s? thanks in advance Russell

I'm not sure about Live, but the general process is loading as a vsti and then enabling midi output from the plugin somehow. You should then be able to select Reaktor as MIDI input on a track.

Hi, i use Ableton live. the PL2 no sound. Someone can teach some tips for the correct setup of thi system? Ableton live-->Reaktor--->PL2 remote programmer i connect che MIDI IN port of PL2 to MIDI OUT of my soundcard (focusrite saffire pro24 dsp) and i play this with akai mpk mini usb master keyboard. When i create a midi track on ableton and i control the PL2 with akai pot, it works, but with a PL2 Remote no sound. Please help me to set this app correctly.

Hey Graham, it works perfectly from within Cubase on my end. Just check your MIDI routing again and you should be able to do it.

Is it possible to make this work from within Cubase? It works fine in standalone, but MIDI routing in a DAW doesn't seem possible.

This is excellent, thanks so much for creating this!

Thank you Klaus! Have not looked into the speech firmware yet. Seems like that would require a seperate programmer. First priority however is to add an LFO and envelope to increase the modulation possibilities.

Great work, thank you so much for creating and sharing this handy tool for the PL2. Controlling the little synth by using this interface feels so much better than using Ploytec's own editor. Now if you'd also incorporate some controls for the Speech Synthesis firmware update, that would make it perfect.
