This tool display setting for a given program for a Clavia Nord Wave synthesizer. The settings are taken from a .nwp file, which is loaded and parsed by the tool.
To load a .nwp file, pres the red STORE button. This opens a file dialog, where you can navigate to the appropiate directory and select the wished .nwp file. Once loaded the file will be validated and if valid, the panel will indicate the parameters values. If the .nwp is not valid, a warning is shown.
The slot LEDs shows which slots are active (enabled) and which has panel focus. If only one slot is active (and thus have the panel focus) the associated LED will shine (red). If both slots are active, the one with panel focus will flash.
By pressing on the slot buttons one can change the slot in panel focus (when both slots are active) or the slot to be active (when only one is active).
As expected, the knobs and LED will show the values for the selected slot in panel focus.
The three morph program LEDs shows which morphs programs (sources) are used on the selected slot. The parameters under influence of one (or several) of the morph programs will have a shining LED.
By pressing one of the morph buttons, one will select the active morph program. Only the LEDs for the parameters influenced by this morph program will now shine. When selecting an active morph program, the associate LED will flash. To deselect a morph source just pres one of the morph program buttons.
By pressing a knob, the big blue display to the left, will for a few seconds show the exact value for this parameter (for the given slot in panel focus). If a morph program is selected, the display will show the original value and the morphed value.
When pressing the CHORD button, the setting for chord will be shown (no matter whether the CHORD function is enabled or disabled for the program). If only one tone is mapped to the CHORD function, the display will just show "Chord Mem (1)" and "0" indicating the tone. However if a chord has been applied to the CHORD function all tones (up to 3) in then chord, will be shown.
All continuous parameters are also shown in a table below the panel. The values are for the slot with panel focus (but notice, that the last parameters from Delay and onwards are common for both slots). The table also shows eventual morphed values. A dash ("–") indicate, that this parameter can never be morphed.
This tool is based on the findings of Mathijs Brands. Mathijs did a lot of work to parse the .nwp file, but didn't complete the task before he sold his Clavia Nord Wave. However without Mathijs initial work and sharing on the Nord User Forum, I would never have completed this. So big thanks to Mathijs :-)
Below you find a couples of examples of nwp files. Both for programs created by me. Also included are simple sound demos for the two programs.
|Jet - Helicop SG||Sound effect: Jetmotor in slot A and helicopter in slot B. In the sound demo the jet sound is first heard, then the sound of helicopter.|
|TerraEnceladusSG||String pad in slot A and a flute like sound in slot B. The sound demo starts with three tones from the flute like sound in slot B, then two cords with boths sounds together and finally the same two cords, but this time only the string pad in slot A.|
