No, as we just found, someone else had been working on this and posted it ;-)
This is great, thank you!!! Also be aware of these other layouts for the same MIDI target:

hi - looks great !

I made the one at sequencer.de - it's the first thing i did with MD, so maybe it doesn't look quite professional - but it seems to work so far. I would be interested in seeing your attempt to make a full layout for reface DX.

Did you find a way to implement the "master tune" in your full editor correctly ? I found the "4 bytes / 3 bits..etc." thing by Yamaha difficult to implement.

Do you have a solution ? Seems to be tricky with MD.

Will upload my layout tomorrow too, it is complete, but master tune has a very coarsly resolution at the moment, i used just one byte of four;-)

Thanks! I found your upload, will comment there.
Regarding the master tune, in fact I did not really understand, how it works and how I could reflect it in MIDI Designer. Looks pretty odd, how they implemented that, indeed. But honestly speaking I didn´t look very deep into it, because in all the years I never had the need to fine-tune my keyboard to other instruments. Only a transpose function can be helpful, if suddenly a song of the band needs to be played in a different tune, because it makes it easier for the singer.
