Awesome, and great out-of-box handling of visual design... looks great!

Please get in touch via Config -> Actions -> Email Us for help with the remaining sysex bits. We'll do what we can.

Thank you!
All sorted... easy when you know how - Named Ticks Scripts - who would have thought a Spreadsheet could be so much fun ;)

I'm now working on the Korg Kronos AL-1 engine...
Hi Andy,

I would like to do something similar with the IFX, MXF effects and the mixer view on my FA06. I want to be able to have all these parameters laid out on an external controler or tablet. I was told that in order to fully control the synth I would need to dive into sysex but I don't have much knowledge in it and i dont find any usefull tutorials. Would this app be helpful for me? How have you managed to build this program without fully understanding sysex messages?
Hi Marcool, changed your question into a comment here, hope you don't mind.

While I cannot answer anything about the FA06 particularly, sysex is pretty easy, and the MIDI Designer support team is here to help you with any sysex issues. It's sort of daunting until we figure out one or two, and then it's all just copy and paste.

Hopefully broadwave will give you more feedback, too. Thanks for your interest!

Hi, I've connected my fa06 to the app on my iPad, but the app isn't affecting my fa06 when I move any of the controls in the app. Is there something I'm missing?
I had the same problem, the solution was to enable "Transmit edit data" and "Receive exclusive" on the FA from Menu > System > MIDI.
Please, can you say to me wich cable I need to use, to connect FA with ipad midi 3? I can't find! Thanks!
