Very short answer: You can tweak two values of a sysex: the V and the L (channel). For L you need a Channel Changer. Then you can move the channel changer using supercontrols with MAX values that align to the proportion of the max you want the channel changer to spin (or a regular supercontrol, which would change the V). Anyway, let's see if that (plus google) gets you started.

In the future we'll add a third and perhaps a whole bunch more variables, but for now, you've got L and V that you can change. Since it seems your V is busy, you've got one variable. Hopefully that's enough for this case.

Thanks for checking out MD!
Channel Changer will let you go the full byte range (7-bits, 0-127) so it's not as bad as it sounds.
Did this answer work for you, fail for you, do you need more information or more help? Thank you.
Yes, this should give me a foundation to work out the rest. Thank you all for such quick help.
I am able to apply L to my sysex messages now, but I can't figure how make those changes hold across to multiple parameters. I tried the A-B function but seems I can only do 1 A-B per knob pair.

I need to map 4 different L values to about 140 respective parameters.
You can see the SGL and DBL column have differences of 1,2,6, and 9 (02-01=1, ... 0A-13=9). Then, there are between two and eight 'positions' within each page (which map to the physical buttons on the synth).

I attached a picture to show the concept I'm trying to achieve. I'm trying to create an easy M1 editor in MidiDesigner but the synth is proving itself quite the bear to tame.
