Frequently Asked Questions


 

Onboard MIDI Event Edit
Q: Will there be functionality to allow modification of MIDI events without using an external DAW?
A: Yes. For users who would like to do this directly within Pa5X instead of on an external DAW, we are working on common on-board editing functions including copy, paste, delete, quantize and more. We are targeting the second quarter of 2023 (April – June) although of course this is subject to change without notice.
 

Style Creator Bot
Q: Will a Style Creator Bot be available in future updates?
A: Yes. A tool similar to the Style Creator Bot will be implemented. Since the Pa5X is a completely new product, the instrument offers a lot of possibilities for tweaking Style-data also in the future OS updates. We are targeting the second quarter of 2023 (April – June) although of course this is subject to change without notice.
