    A Question about GEM

    Dear All

    Am I correct in thinking GEM is basically an enhanced Universal Sound Module of the sort that comes with Sonar/Cubase etc?

    Apropos of nothing in particular, I bought an Allman Brothers compiliation CD the other day - really great stuff.

    Wish I'd written the waltz from DS's Jazz Suite.

    Re: A Question about GEM

    Good someone started a thread about GEM. I have a question too. A friend was looking for a GM module, but i want to know how GEM will manage the midi controllers. Will be it in a "compatible" way, i mean, you load an standard midi file and it just sound? or will be it in the GPO way, trough modulation wheel? or both? or a conversion is needed? or... you say me.

    Thanks!

    It will use General Midi conventions, not GPO. So instruments are controlled with velocity as in standard GM, rather than CC1.

    This is why it's called a General Midi library.
