This is an MS-Windows software editor for the 1987 Yamaha TX81Z synthesizer module.
The TX81Z Programmer was originally released on May 25, 2005. I originally released it as $20 shareware, but now I've decided to release it as open source under the GNU Public License version 2.
This code was originally written on Visual C++ 6. I now have it configured to compile on VS2015 Community Edition.
- Visual Studio Community Edition 2017
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Installer Projects to build the installer project
- Microsoft HTML Help Workshop 1.3 to build the HTML Help file
- doc/ - docs and HTML Help file project
- setup/ - installer project
- src/ - executable project
- src/wnd/ - application windows created using CreateWindow
- src/dlg/ - application windows created using CreateDialog (ie they have a dialog resource, which is usually made with the dialog editor)
- src/ctrl/ - custom dialog controls
- src/msg/ - general code library (linked list, files, paths, error handling, random numbers, string processing, etc.)
- src/gui/ - general gui library
- src/midi/ - low-level MIDI library (send sysex message, etc.)
- src/prog.h - global constants
- src/prog.c - global procedures and WinMain(), which creates the main window
- src/wnd/mainWnd.c - main window
- src/tx81z.c - high-level TX81Z-specific MIDI library (send voice, etc.)
- src/freqratios.c - tables of oscillator frequencies
- src/tx81z_init.c - tables of init data
- src/tx81z_meta.c - structures for representing the TX81Z's internal state
- Each .c file contains 8 sections. The first 6 sections declare what's in the file:
- Global Constants
- Global Procedures
- Global Variables
- Unit (file scope) Constants
- Unit Procedures
- Unit Variables
- The next 2 sections are:
- Global Procedure definitions
- Unit Procedure definitions
- The global declaration sections are duplicated from the header files. I did this to make it easy to browse the contents of the file and jump from declaration to definition in Vim. It's probably not that useful in Visual Studio.
- A global identifier is composed of the name of the module, an underscore, and the procedure name.
- A unit identifier is similar but begins with a two letter lowercase abbreviation.
- The files freqratios.c, tx81z_inits.c, and tx81z_meta.c are #included by other .c files where they belong (just to get them out of my face), so they are not included in the project.
