SoundTower OB-X8 Editor User Guide
« on: July 31, 2023, 09:36:00 PM »
Despite the claim in the Readme, SoundTower neglected to install a User Guide with either v1.1.3 or v1.3.1 of their Sound Editor.

Quote
Your User Guide (in PDF) and this text readme file are found in the the install directory for the software. There are also short cut links in start up for both.

They have not responded to support queries.  Does anyone know exactly what folder to look in for the manual, or have a manual to share from earlier versions?

Thanks in advance.

It looks like their other products are at least partially documented online.  For example, the main Prophet 5 editor functions are listed here:  https://www.soundtower.com/prophet5/manual/ 

This looks close enough to the OB-X8 version to answer my main questions about the MIDI settings, Program Genetics, and Librarian.  Hopefully they will post more specific OB-X8 docs at some point.

Now that the firmware has been updated to include the User bank, they need to update the software to reflect it. Until then, the Librarian isnít going to work right. I havenít heard any word that theyíre doing it. We might all need to email them about it to get it happening.

The last couple of updates of the editor do include support for the user bank.  The current version of the standalone editor is v1.31.
