I do not have a credit card. How else I can buy TriEditPro license- key/registration?

There are many other options. For any additional information about payments please write to editors@soundtower.com

If I buy TriEditPro registration, do I have to pay for the editor's future updates?

Absolutely no! You will become a TriEditPro registered user for life. You will receive all TriEditPro updates for free via e-mail or FTP. If you change your computer or your hard drive crashes and you lose your license key you can simply write to editors@soundtower.com with your e-mail and registration name. 

What do I need to connect my Triton to my computer in order to use the sound editor?

TriEditPro can be used with any computer running Windows OS(95, 98, Me, 2K, XP). Your Triton has to be connected to your computer using computer MIDI INTERFACE and cables that plug into Triton's Midi IN and Midi OUT connectors. 
Almost every computer's soundcard comes with a Midi Interface that is located on a Joystick port. Some computers have a build-in soundcards with midi port. It is IMPORTANT to know that you may NOT be able to use some types of those interfaces with a Triton and TriEditPro or ANY other synth editing software for the following technical reasons:

1) Change your Midi Interface.
  or
2) Set Triton's Global Clock is set to EXTERNAL.  

Please note,  If you change Triton's Global Clock to EXTERNAL and if there is no Midi Clock on Triton's Midi IN then Arpeggios and Patterns will not play. You can use any sequencer to send a Midi clock to Triton. Soon. in the next update (1.3.2) TriEditPro will automatically generate a Midi Clock for the Triton to work around this problem and in addition you will be able to change Clock tempo by simply using a slider from within TriEditPro.

What Midi Interface would you recommend?

If you do not have a good midi interface yet with it you are content, we recommend MIDIMAN (MidiSport) USB  . We have tested MIDIMAN will all Windows OS (95, 98, Me, 2K, XP). It works like a charm, it is inexpensive and most likely you will never have a problem with it. It sorts Midi Clock and Sysex data without any problems.  MIDIMAN USB has also multiclient driver - that means it can be used by more than one midi application at a time. MIDIMAN is most likely available in your local music store. 

How do I know  if my Midi Interface will work correctly with a editing software?

You can test it using TriEditPro in a demo mode, here is how:

 Connect the Triton to a computer via MIDI.
1. Make sure you have selected Midi IN and OUT in TriEditPro MIDI SETUP window. Click on ENABLE button. On the top of MIDI SETUP window the Triton's Model and software version should be displayed immediately if not then check cables and selected Midi IN and OUT.

2. Click TEST button in MIDI SETUP window. If prompted, change Triton's Exclusive Filter setting to ON and click TEST button again. If you get a message "MIDI COMMUNICATION - OK" then close MIDI SETUP window.  
3. Press on PROGRAM MODE button
on TRITON machine. TriEditPro should automatically display PROGRAM bank Mode. From "Midi"  window menu in TriEditPro select "Receive Bank>Program Bank A" and  and click START in receive window. Triton's programs should be coming one by one.
4. Select one of the Programs (for example A005). The name of selected Program should get displayed in the Program Name box:

If the Program Name box changes then your system and midi interface is good and ready for editing Triton!

If you follow these steps above and the Program Name box doe not change from "Initial..." then there is a problem with your Midi Interface or its drivers. TriEditPro displays the size of incoming data in a status bar:

 

The size of a SYSEX message for Triton's Programs should be the same for all Programs (here pictured: 515 for Triton LE). If it is less than 515 or it is not the same when you select different Programs then your midi interface cuts off sysex messages while receiving Midi Clock in the same time. You can change Triton's Global Clock to EXTERNAL to fix this problem. To do so: press GLOBAL button on Triton machine. Press "Menu Page+/-" button. Press F2 to get to a MIDI page, F8 to open it and then change Midi Clock to EXTERNAL. Use the UTILITY button to WRITE GLOBAL SETTINGS otherwise it will be reset when you power-off.

What settings I have to make in Triton to work with TriEditPro?

In order for Triton to send and receive data via Midi Triton's Global setting "Filter Exclusive" has to be set to ON (checked "v"). To check this setting:  Press GLOBAL button on Triton machine. Press "Menu Page+/-" button. Press F2 to get to a MIDI page, F8 to open and change  "Exclusive" using "DEC-INC" buttons. Use UTILITY button to WRITE GLOBAL SETTINGS otherwise it will be reset when you power-off. You should also remember that  "Exclusive" settings along with all other Global settings will reset to OFF when you use PRELOAD from the PCG function!

In order for TriEditPro to correctly switch Triton Programs, generate correct patch scripts for Cubase and Cakewalk because the BANK MAP setting in MIDI SETUP window has to be the same as Triton's BANK MAP setting: Press "Menu Page+/-" button. Press F1 to get to a SYSTEM page, F8 to open F2 for Preferences and check if BANK MAP is set to GM or KORG. Adjust BANK MAP in TriEditPro or Triton accordingly.

I use Japanese Windows, I cannot get my synth  to communicate with the editor?

To solve this ;

1. Open the "Regional option" in the control panel and go to the detail tab.

2. Then choose "the program language which is not for Unicord" into English (as a default, it is Japanese in my case).

3. Then the editor and Evolver recognize each other after rebooting the system.

Ciao, Toby
