Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Shoot me if I should start a new topic, but having read very carefully this tutorial, been misled about why my mic won't work, I decided to make a direct connection, i.e. plug the mic directly into the MU-128. I can hear absolutely nothing, despite the fact that when I play midi through it, it work...

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Yup, good software I'm told, but I don't think it can create correct SysEx messages from scratch, they can be edited though I believe.
Not tried it though.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

That's a real shame, David.

For it was, and to a very large extent still is my 'go to' sequencer, but now in the guise of SQ01 with a bit of XGworks ST thrown in.
It means it handles VSTi's properly.

Regards,
John.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

My pleasure, Michael.
So pleased you found it of some use. :D
I've been meaning to write something about SysEx for ages.
David's question just happened to trigger something.
It helped that I already knew a bit about the MU128 too. ;)

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

With apologies for hijacking the OP's post. I have one running under El Capitan and it is wonderful. Would have to be USB as splitting one 31.25Kbits/s MIDI channel over 8 would likely result in horrible latency. Hmm! For sure there's gonna be some latency, but "horrendous"? Not sure. The...

Re: New to Yamahaforum

Yup, heard that said many times. :wink: I DO remember, when Eric Clapton played with the John Mayall Blues Breakers, we helped the roadies get John's Hammond onto the stage. Same club. About a three foot lift. It nearly killed me. Then watching Eric play some amazing riffs whilst watching two gorgeo...

Hi Saul,
Just a tiny contribution to the cause, wish it could be more.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

System 'Elusive' indeed, Chris. :lol: For most people. Thanks Saul, I had a lot of what I wrote already saved in a text file where I originally wrote it. (I know, what a cheat!) But I wanted to restore it, if I could, with the extra text that I'd put in here, after I created the original. So it was ...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

Oh, yes!

A MIDI hub. Quite so, Chris.
It takes the output from one MIDI port (might be USB) and splits it out to multiple MIDI interfaces dependent upon channel. Clever.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

One of the wonderful things about XGworks is that, built right into the software, are most of the SysEx messages for Yamaha equipment up to the late nineties, perhaps even later. Accessing these commands is simply a case of selecting the correct option within Xgworks, and then choosing from the list...

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Okay, here goes with episode 2. So, what did we glean from the table? Let me try to summarise it. Both input sockets can be set to either 'mic' or 'line' sensitivity. A 'Bank Select' message decides which. The inputs can be switched on/off and effects can be added to each input. The 'Program Number ...

A bit about SysEx (restored).

From elsewhere in the forum, David ( originally 'soconfused' now 'lessconfused' ) asked whether and how he could control the analogue input of an MU128 using SysEx commands. Let's face it many experienced MIDI users, experts even, turn pale when somebody asks them about SysEx. His query gave me the ...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

As Chris has pointed out, 'cascading' MIDI devices, out to in, thru to in and so on can introduce its own problems. The whole MIDI stream is intercepted by device one and is then regenerated, I'm sure you've looked at the mechanism in the MMA spec. http://i1203.photobucket.com/albums/bb393/SysExJohn...

Re: New to Yamahaforum

So as a result of all this "history" - we DO in fact have have a quite serious technical backgound going on here - and I've not even mentioned Brian Allan, Miks, Jima, Sonus and others here - who CONTINUE to amaze, down among the bits and the bytes . . . . How can we NOT be surprised then...
