Fantom Xr Editor

Fantom Xr EditorFirst I found the Windows 8 version here: http://roland.com/support/article/?q=do .. d=62483063

Fantom-X Editor Version 1.53 (MAC) Fantom-X Editor/Librarian for Fantom-XA and Fantom-X6,7,8,XR running version 1. Version 1.53 adds compatibility with the SRX-12 Expansion Card. Fantom-X Editor Version 2.10 (Mac) This is the new Editor/Librarian software for Version 2 of the Fantom. Fantom-X Editor/Librarian for Fantom-XA and Fantom-X6,7,8,XR running version 1. Version 1.53 of the editor adds compatibility for the SRX-12 Expansion Board. Fantom-X Editor Version 1.53 (MAC) Fantom-X Editor/Librarian for Fantom-XA and Fantom-X6,7,8,XR running version 1. Version 1.53 adds compatibility with the SRX-12 Expansion Card. Like the Fantom-X keyboards, the Fantom-XR module is based on Roland's powerful new sound generator chip. This chip delivers maximum audio processing performance at a great price - including an expressive stereo 4-tone synthesis engine with 128-voice polyphony. I'm a lucky owner of a Fantom XR module. I was really disappointed when I discovered that latest OSX sistems were no more supported by Roland Fantom X Editor. The rack module display is very small and there is no way to manage all the tons of controls, this unit has, from such a poor number of knobs.


I tried to install it but it did not work.
Next I ran through this process that tells Windows that it can install unsigned drivers.

In my Fantom X driver archive I found and edited the RDIF1045.inf file
Change [Roland.NTamd64.6.2] so it looks like this:

Fantom xr editor(essentially, I just changed the Windows8 to Windows10 and left the rest of the file alone)
Don't run the installer again..instead do it manually......
Next I plugged in the Fantom to the USB port, opened the Device Manager, and manually installed the driver by pointing it to the directory holding all the Fantom X driver files.
1. Plug in your Fantom via USB.
2. Right click the start button and choose device manager.
3. Locate your Fantom X, it should show up in the unidentified ? section of devices.
Editor4. Right click it and choose update driver.

5. Browse your disk(s) and find the directory holding your Fantom X drivers.
Hopefully it will find everything it needs and install itself for you.
So far it seems to be working for me, at least the MIDI over USB part.as I haven't tried accessing the memory or flash card yet.
I'll come back and follow up with more posts once I get a chance to try the memory/flash mounting side of things.
