Cakewalk INS File for Roland JD-XI

Hi all,
 
I have a Roland JD-XI on order arriving next week and I'd like to integrate it into my home studio.
 
I do my sequencing on Cakewalk Music Creator and Cakewalk Home Studio 9.01 running under Linux WINE Windows Emulator..
 
What I am looking for is a proper Cakewalk Instrument Definitions File for the JD-XI.
 
Frankly I don't care if it was community created or if it's available as a direct download from Cakewalk, as long as it works.
 
Considering that Roland actually owns Cakewalk and since the JD-XI has been around for over a year now, I don't think I'm asking for the impossible here.
 
I have minimal experience creating my own INS files and I'd really rather not deal with the hassle of rolling my own if someone else has already done this for us.
 
Any input on where to locate such a file would be welcomed with open arms.
 
Thanks for listening,
 
Gary ;)

Hello Gary and welcome to the forum.
 
I don't know if the Roland JD-Xi INS file is available or not.  However, there is a link below that will let you download the latest INS file.
 
 More news, Roland doesn't own Cakewalk now!  Gibson purchased Cakewalk from Roland in 2015.

Hi Jim,
 
Thanks for the quick reply but the link you provided comes up 'Page Not Found."
 
As far as Gibson owning Cakewalk now goes, I'm somewhat surprised but then again isn't there already some sort of incestuous relationship between Gibson and Roland to begin with?
 
ie. doesn't one already own the other?
 
Gary ;)

Good news, I was able to find the Instrument Definitions in the Knowledge base.
 
Apparently the page has been moved to :
 

 
It really would have made things simpler if the site just kept them on a top level downloads link instead of burying them inside the KB.
 
Now for the really bad news.
 
A quick look inside both the official and the community files tells me the JD-Xi has not been supported yet.
 
I loathe the thought of having to create my own INS for this one and I'm not even sure of what sort of bank switching goes on inside the JD-Xi.
 
So my questions still stands.
 
Anyone out there created an INS for this model keyboard yet?
 
Gary ;)

Bump...
 
Nobody out there has seen or heard of a JD-Xi INS file yet?
 
It's been on the market for a bloody year already.

You might have better luck if you post this on the Sonar forum.  It gets a lot more traffic and there are more power users there who are more likely to own a JD-Xi and perhaps have created an INS for it.

Re: Cakewalk INS File for Roland JD-XI 2016/03/31 14:14:41 (permalink)
The hell with it.
 
I'm already editing the instrument and bank lines and expect to finish up in a few days.
 
I have no idea how to set up the controller and drum voice sections though so when I'm done I'll post it up here and have someone with better eyes and skills do the final tweaking.
 
Thanks for the suggestion but at least I'm contributing to the community. ;)
 
I'll repost the message in the Sonar forum though.  You may be right about someone else reinventing the wheel, though I thought the latest versions of Sonar Platinum did away with INS files.
 
Thanks :)
 
Gary ;)

Nope, I still use INS files (and recently created one for my Nord Rack 4) with Platinum.

Seriously it would be great if Cakewalk created some kind of simple python program that generated the script with a simple cut and paste of instrument names.
 
Cutting and pasting the instrument names is the easy part.
 
It's the line numbering and labelling that's mind numbingly tedious.
 
If I were a better programmer I'd write one up myself. :(

Actually a decent java web app designer could knock one off in a week or two and they could post it right here on the forums and website so that anyone could cut and paste the instrument names bank by bank in a dialogue field and check off a few checkboxes and nobody would ever again have to go thru the living hell of rolling their own INS files.
 
And it would support every keyboard known to man as well as everyone yet to be produced!
 
Howabout it cakewalk mods?
 
This is a suggestion worth passing on to the website admins and programmers!
 
Gary ;)

Re: Cakewalk INS File for Roland JD-XI 2016/04/01 18:08:58 (permalink) ☄ Helpfulby jimfogle 2018/02/12 20:38:25
Good news folks.

After two days of blood, sweat, tears, hairpulling and debugging I've created a mostly working Cakewalk INS file for the JD-Xi.

All that's missing are the controllers and the drum voice maps.

If anyone else wants to add those be my guest.

For the most part though, it will allow you to sequence your projects on any Cakewalk DAW with minimum grief.

No applause please.  Just throw money :D

File is attached.

; Beta-0.95b by Gary G. 2016
; Everything works except someone else can add the controllers and the drum maps if they'd like
; 2 days of blood sweat and tears.
; PLEASE Cakewalk, write a script generator applet and put it on your website to make this easier for everyone in the future!!! :)

Re: Cakewalk INS File for Roland JD-XI 2018/02/12 20:44:40 (permalink)
To be honest, I sold off my JD-Xi last year and bought a Novation Ultranova instead.
 
The JD-Xi has a few quirks that make it unfriendly for sequencer work.
 
1) The channels for each voice are fixed.  You cannot change the channel numbers.
 
Channels are 1 & 2 for PCM voices and 3 for Analog Synth and 10 for percussion.
 
There's no way to adjust these.
 
Secondly you cannot save individual patches except as full performances including step sequencer sequences.
 
Like I said, I ended up selling off my JD-Xi and trading it in on a Novation Ultranova, which is well supported under Cakewalk.
