Hi,
I have developed a software to edit patches for T.C. Electronics' G-Major guitar processor, titled GLydian . For downloads and screenshots, see down below or click this thread.

Some features of the GLydian are:

  • It is Java based so you can run it on Windows, Apple Macs, Linux or any other OS which has Java available on it.
  • This is a very user friendly piece of software which has VST plug-in, like interface with Dials, LEDs and such. So it is very intuitive to use.
  • You can edit a currently loaded patch in G-Major through your computer in real-time. That way you can hear how the sound changes while you are tuning UI's Dial.
  • You can maintain a library of patches in your computer and copy & past individual effects across patches.
If you have a G-Major, download this software and please, give us some feedback. Also, there are two other free editors available in the Yahoo group.

I am still looking for some new ideas to improve the features of GLydian, so you can suggest any new features you would like to have.
I want people to use it and give some feedback on performance so that I can improve it.

To download see the download Icons below. Please download the latest version. Old/Beta versions are here only for reference.

Still we don't have a proper documentation/user manual, but there are lots of user questions and answers are available in this forum. To start look in this thread. Please don't hesitate to give your feedback or report any usability issues.

NOTE: Default Java installation on Mac OS X does not support external MIDI communication . There is a shareware product called "Mandolane MIDI SPI" which enables the external MIDI communication with java on Mac OS X. Download the package from: www.mandolane.co.uk/dlMandoMidi.html This is verified to work with GLydian, please see this thread for further information.
Thank you spakuloid for testing this issue.

You can get Java obviously from http://www.java.com
Thanks,
GLydian

As far as I can tell, Java 1.5 is only available for OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or higher. I have 10.3.9 (Panther) and I can only find an update of Java 1.4.2_12.
Am I outta luck for using GLydian?

Hey,

Thanks for the software, I haven't really tried it yet because I'm still new to the G Major. Can you edit the global settings and MIDI with the software?

Also do you know haw to use the KIll Dry? The manual doesn't even mention the setting.

Thanks

I just downloaded the Patch editor and had a look. Seems to be well thought out. I have not hooked up my G-Major as my rig is at my friends where our band practices. Will try it out tomorrow. You mentioned that you liked feedback, so here are my thoughts.
I have a Behringer Vamp Pro. I downloaded the software that Behringer provides and it has a user preset page that I can very readily re-arrange presets. This helps when we rearrange our song list and I can change the order of my presets to the new song list. We change our list dependant on the function we are playing. I really like this feature and wonder if anybody else would think this would be useful?
Anyway, I thank you for this tool, as I hate trying to work within the boundaries of the little menu screens most often found on this type of equipment.

Very nice and comfortable useful tool.
I tested it a few hours and find a little bug in the "RELAYS"
#1 effects Relay #2
#2 effects nothing and the checkboxes appears vice versa, means checked=open

Thank you

It seems like this place has changed a lot.
Any body care to get this thread to be a sticky some where in the forum :)
Thanks,

I do not own a G-System, love to get one for its intelligent pitch shift and routing stuff. I think they already have a software editor.
But did not try. Is it better than GLydian?
Suggest me if I need to do any improvements guys!

You know, it's weird. I was never able to get the software to run on my Mac for the longest time. Then, one day, I thought I'd just delete it since it wouldn't run. But something told me to just try it one more time. And wouldn't you know it, it worked! :rock: I'm happy now that I don't have to use that dreaded windows box. Damn Bill Gates. :doh:

How many of you guys using GLydian on Mac and had to buy the http://www.mandolane.co.uk MIDI driver?
I was using it last few months on demo mode without any problem. Suddenly yesterday it said that the demo mode is expired and asked me to buy it. What the hack it was only 10 bucks and I went ahead and purchased it, thinking that I get the licence file rightaway and continue my work. Damn now it says it'll take 3 days to send me the file. :thumbsdown: This is so frustrating... :aww:
Let me know your experience with mandolane driver.

I'll let you know the status once I get the licence, in 3 DAYs :gethim:

So far no problems with it and I didn't have to purchase anything. I haven't used it much lately, but I didn't even know it was a demo. I thought it was freeware. I'll keep you posted if anything changes.

I'm trying to use this software and it's just not working.
I'm using an M-Audio Midisport UNO to connect it.
It seems in the setup of the software (Glydian) that the Midi Out keeps reverting to "Microsoft Midi Mapper" and won't keep my setting of "USB Uno MIDI Out"

I know that the UNO will work for editing patches on my G-Major because I've been using another G-Major editor (not Glydian) and it's worked fine.

Any ideas on why it won't save this setting in the Midi Port Setup?

Are you still developing GLydian?
I have been using it on my OS X 10.5.4 Powerbook with fair amount of success.

There are some bugaboos to workaround however but it works for the most part.
I'm a pretty Mac/Unix savvy and I can help you develop it further on the Mac if your interested.

Hello, I downloaded GLydian version 1.4 and i'm tryin' to run g-major 1.27 from it.

I wanted to save all my user patches for backup, so I tried the "add user patches to the patch library" option.
First of all, Glydian doesn't recognize all my patches (only the first 30 in the "open patch" menu... when i have around 60!)

Then, when I want to make a backup by the command "save patch library to sysex..." a save as window opens, but when i type in a filename and save, the file's not saved anywhere. I've tried another filename, to put an extension .syx, changing directory... but nothing works.

I think i'm doing something wrong.

I've tried in windows editor and in the java one. Neither one of them works.

Hi everyone,
I came back to this forum after about one year, lots of things changed.
Thanks abelet for waking me up ( when the september ended).
I loaded my working version of the GLydian today.
This is the latest version I was using for last few months, but never get test in Windows, so I call it Release Candidate :) And it is only the pure Java version.
NOTE: Now this site does not allow me to upload the file with .jar extention so I appended .zip also to the file name.So once you download this just remove the .zip part from name before anything lese. Do not open it with unzip programs.

Ask you questions about GLydian and G-Major to keep this thread alive, since it is not a sticky now :cry:

Hi,

I have a problem with Glydian like jimosity - Glydian keeps the ms - midi mapper as midi out device - I cannot change it to usb - midi out. I canĀ“read the patches from G-Major, but cannot edit them or send a patch. I'm using an Alesis IO2 as interface.

What do I do wrong?

GLydian



I'm a Linux user, and it gets a null-pointer reference every time I try to run it. I know nothing about java, so please be gentle. The commands I've used are:

/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java -jar GLydian1.4.2_CR.jar
and
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre/bin/java -jar GLydian1.4.2_CR.jar


The error output of those commands is:

""""""""""""""

I simiply love GLydian, so any help is appreciated. If i need a special java, please let me know (Ubuntu Hardy here).

thanks!

It's been a year - is this still being maintained?

I'm still unable to run the latest GLydians. The last GLydian to work was GLydian_Ver1.2_PureJava. The newer versions error out per my previous post. I'm using java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.15 and java-6-sun-1.6.0.06 which both yield the same result.

Am I missing something silly? I know very little about java, do I need a different version?

curiously,

Thanks for the software, I haven't really tried it yet because I'm still new to the G Major. Can you edit the global settings and MIDI with the software?

Same here - I was giving the G-Major one more chance with PC directed software and it is just not working. I'm very disappointed that these latest rack units are so difficult to program and use - I'm trying to make music not be a MIDI programme.r. The G-major + Behringr pedal = PIA.

I'm out - for sale G-major

Bump from the dead...

I recently picked up an older G-Major. Using my Macbook with Snow Leopard, I had to go into boot camp in order to update my firmware. After using 3-4 different devices, only my oldest interface (m-audio radium 61) would work!

Now I'm trying to get G-Lydian working on my computer, I've downloaded all the different versions on this thread but every time I try to send/receive data G-lydian locks up. I'm using my Eleven Rack as the MIDI interface since it's the only one I have with both MIDI in and out. I've been trying to track down Mandolane for a couple days now but the website is gone and no mirrors seem to function.

Does anyone know if Mandolane is still needed on Snow Leopard, and if anyone has it could you please upload it onto here, or maybe rapidshare? If I could edit from my computer it would be an incredible time saver, as one of my concentric pots is missing both knobs. Thanks in advance guys!

Mandolane does not work any more it seems, but the Mac OS X java or the oracle java does not seem to implement proper MIDI capability too. So right now only solution seems to be using MMJ library ( http://www.humatic.de/htools/mmj.htm ) and that seem to work perfectly at least mountain lion for me. Nice thing is mmj is a free utility.
What I did was uninstalled Mandolane by deleting Mandolane stuff from /Library/java/Extentions folder
and then copying the MMJ stuff (mmj.jar and libmmj.jnilib files) on to /Library/java/Extentions .

Hello there.
Not sure anyone ever reads this, but nevertheless )

Mandoline is long obsolete. I'm running OSX Yosemite, and found another solution to make java work with external MIDI devices, MMJ.
Here it goes http://www.humatic.de/htools/mmj.htm
At least GLydian finally could get current patch from GMajor.
Hope I just saved couple of days of trial and error for someone )
