Title APPLICATION FILES FOR TWO SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS FOR EDITING KEYBOARDS, SYNTHESIZERS AND EFFECT DEVICES
Marketing Text Scripts for the Yamaha Motif ES family of synthesizers. The scripts cover 2 individual programs for editing and managing the device.
This is a very important step which we have done. It is an extremely graphical environment to work within that no visually impaired musician, producer or sound engineer could access. There has been a really big need for such software solutions. So this is the first step in order to be able to meet the needs of the target group to work with the modern devices. Today’s machines mostly deal with software modes, menus, and relatively complicated external computer editors. They also use nice graphical interfaces, which makes it even more complicated for visually impaired users to get a properly working, intuitive and accessible interface. In the proguide2 project we have therefore been working with this problem, in order to give the visually impaired users at least some solutions with an acceptable degree of accessibility. After have processed and analyzed almost 100 different software alternatives on the market, we decided to promote the Yamaha Studio manager and editing software for the very popular synthesizer rack module Motif XS. The rack is packed with an enormous amount of good sounds, and features. It is small and light to carry around. It is also affordable for a lot of musicians.
With the help of this software you can adjust all the important parameters on the device, and make them visible on the Braille display and through speech. It means that you can adjust the sound sets which interest you, for an optimal result in your work. The scripts have been presented for the target groups and people working with the target groups including educational institutions, labour agencies, counsellors, possible employers and offer new possibilities for the target group on the labour market within sound and music areas.
Target group Sound engineers, sound technicians, musicians, producers, vocational training centers for visually impaired, educators working with visually impaired within music sphere.
