Symphonix Evolution version 1.85 will add the possibility to create your own patch maps for MIDI devices, allowing Symphonix Evolution to use your instrument’s actual names when selecting presets.
The patch maps are stored in an XML file with a “.sxd” extension where each file represents a different device, and there is no limit on how many devices you can have.
The .sxd files are kept in the app’s Documents folder, meaning that they are visible to iTunes and may be copied into and out of the folder using drag-and-drop from iTunes on your PC or Mac.
Vinclaro have posted the structure of the .sxd file on their blog so if you can get a head start on creating your own patch map while you wait for the update to arrive.
Whether you’re an experienced musician or a learner, Symphonix Evolution for iPad is a powerful tool that helps take your music to a whole new level. Create music by dragging notes directly onto the score, and record or playback via MIDI devices or using the inbuilt virtual synthesizer. Then print your music to share with others in your group. Learners or musicians who play ‘by ear’ will appreciate the ability to associate note pitch with the notation.
