SYSEX PATCH BANKS

These patch banks can be uploaded to your NF-1 using MIDI sysex. Instructions on how to import/export patch banks can be found in the Modor NF-1 user's manual (§8.9). Your NF-1 needs to be in the SYSEX DUMP-menu on the 'Bank Receive'-item to receive patch bank sysex, otherwise these messages are ignored. If you need a simple SysEx software, we recommend using one of these:
  • Linux: Simple Sysexxer, can be found here
  • Mac OS X: SysEx Librarian, can be found here
  • Windows: Use the sysex dialog (View menu, Sysex) of Midi-OX, can be found here, or use SendSX, can be found here
Important: Of these patchbanks, there's always an old and a new version. Since the addition of a USB midi interface to the NF-1m, the sysex protocol had to be changed to allow it to work with Midi-over-USB. Since OS010, the NF-1 also uses this same protocol. So:
  • When using the USB connector, only the new version can be used
  • On the NF-1 with OS009 or older, only the old version can be used
  • When using the MIDI IN connector on the NF-1m or the NF-1 with OS010 or newer, both versions can be used.
Feel free to send us your own preset banks if you want to share them!

 

FACTORY PRESETS

Reinstall all factory presets at once by using this Sysex File. This works on all versions on the Minimodor NF-1m and on OS010 or newer on the NF-1.

FIRMWARE UPDATES

The most recent version of the Modor NF-1 firmware is OS011. Version _v3 of the user manual is up to date with OS011.
  • OS001 was the basic version on the very first NF-1's.
  • OS002 added poly/mono/legato switching over OS001.
  • OS003 adds a bugfix that solves bad response from certain MIDI keyboards.
  • OS004 adds a "Safety Mode" and a "Frontpanel Reset" together with some minor bugfixes.
  • OS005 adds envelope looping and a number of bugfixes.
  • OS006 adds another bugfix.
  • OS007 simplifies the patch loading/saving procedure and removes some disturbing click sounds when playing mono.
  • OS008 adds looping amp-envelope, polyphonic aftertouch, breath controller as mod source, and a few other things.
  • OS009 fixes some bugs (audio clicks are gone), adds new modulation destinations, adds internal/external syncing, adds MPE support (for Roli Seaboard and Linnstrument), and makes osc&env toggling more intuitive.
  • OS010 fixes full patch compatibility between the minimodor NF-1m and the NF-1, and has some improved Midi MPE support.
  • OS011 fixes a tuning problem that was created on OS010, and fixes a bug in the MPE system.
  • OS012 fixes a bug that was created in OS010, which messes up the preset memory in some devices.
The most recent version of the Minimodor NF-1m firmware is OS005. A specific manual will follow soon, most aspects can be found in the NF-1's user manual too.
REMARK: Users that have OS001 on the Minimodor NF-1m have to use the old style 5-pin DIN connection to install the firmware update. Updating through Midi-over-USB is not possible. This bug was fixed in OS002.
  • OS001 was the basic version on the first NF-1m's.
  • OS002 fixes a bug in the Midi-over-USB system.
  • OS003 adds safety mode, improved MPE support, fixes a bug with selecting modulation sources and adds some handy shortcuts.
    • When turning a control while keeping EXIT/NO pressed, you can inspect the actual parameter value without changing it.
    • When turning Ctrls 4 or 5 while keeping MOD pressed in the OSC screen, you can change the FM harmonics without menu diving.
  • OS004 fixes a bug in the Midi MPE support, and fixes a bug with Midi Note Nr #00
  • OS005 fixes a bug that was created in OS003, which messes up the preset memory in some devices.
You can check your actual OS number in the SYSTEM SETTINGS menu.

WARNING! Installing new firmware destroys your complete patch memory! Make a backup memory dump before installing the new firmware. Modor Music cannot be held responsible for the loss of your work!

WARNING! Some MIDI interfaces don't seem to handle large sysex files correctly - thereby damaging your patch memory and making OS updates impossible. Try a Bank dump/receive first to check if all goes well! We'll try to make a list of trusted MIDI interfaces soon - Report your success or problems with OS updates in a mail to info@modormusic.com. This problem does not exist on the Minimodor NF-1m and on NF-1's with OS010 or higher, because it uses an updated sysex protocol.
