Ensoniq MR 61 Editor and Librarian

for Midi Quest iPad

Developed specifically for the Ensoniq MR 61, Sound Quest's Midi Quest multi-instrument editor/librarian protects the MR 61 from data loss, provides an intuitive graphic interface to display the instrument's settings, and includes unparalleled editing, organization, and creative tools to maximize the sonic potential of the MR 61.

With support for over 630 instruments and devices, Midi Quest is the only editor/librarian to offer fully integrated, studio wide, SysEx management in a single app.

Sound Quest's 30 year history of creating editor/librarian software for MIDI hardware means that Midi Quest offers the most comprehensive suite of SysEx tools found anywhere. Midi Quest includes the basics that should be included in every editor/librarian, integrated storage and editing of both patch and bank SysEx (don't expect bank editors in simple panel editing software). Midi Quest also includes advanced tools and features which are unique to the app such as intelligent patch generators, block copy tools, unlimited undo, parent/child patch management, and much more.
