TC Electronic G-Major/2 Editor/Librarian

for Windows and Macintosh

Congratulations on owning the TC Electronic G-Major/2. You know something that many musicians have forgotten, that whatever the reason, hardware synths and effects often just sound better than soft synths. Sound Quest's Editor/Librarian Software Midi Quest helps you to get the most from your hardware with tools and capabilities not found in panel editors or other editor/librarians.

Software synths and effects can have advantages. They work right inside your sequencer; sounds are stored on the computer with easy access and on screen editing; and if you want, you can even automate sound edits while your sequence plays. All you have to do is twist the knobs of your soft-synth to record the changes.

With Sound Quest's Editor and Librarian software, you can give your TC Electronic G-Major/2 these advantages as well. Create, organize, download and find patches.

MIDI Quest Pro, Midi Quest and Midi Quest Essentials work with the following SysEx data from the Electronic G-Major/2: Preset, User Preset Bank, Factory Preset Bank and Setup.

Integrate the Electronic G-Major/2 into your DAW and use it the same way as a soft-synth or run the editor as a separate application connected to your [NAME]]. You can display, edit, tweak, organize, audition, archive and manage your Electronic G-Major/2 from the focal point of your studio. Midi Quest offers the widest selection of editor/librarian plug-in technologies: VST, AU, MFX, and Studio Connections.

Just as a VST or AU plug-in is loaded by a host, the TC Electronic G-Major/2 editor/librarian is designed as a module. This module runs in all three versions of Midi Quest: Midi Quest Essentials, Midi Quest, and Midi Quest Pro. Every version of Midi Quest includes complete editor/librarian support for the Electronic G-Major/2. The more advanced versions of Midi Quest include additional features such as plug-in capabilities, patch generators, and advanced tools to manage larger MIDI systems and patch collections.

Below is a small sampling of Midi Quest features. For more detail on Midi Quest and the differences between the three versions, please click here.
