So impressed, and kind of wondering how a first submission could be so on point. Thanks for sharing, wow!
Thanks, mate. Kudos to Michael Raleigh and Ibo Kai for providing their fantastic groundwork to this!
Hi! Im very impressed about this patch! It is working awesomely. The only issue I’m having is related to the function “get values”. It seems to not be working. I found out it is hidden in the design mode, but either way,  the patch is not able to get the values from the current patch in the synth. Is this actually working or I’m doing something wrong? Thanks in advance and congrats for the great work!
Sorry for the late reply. I am not constantly checking this here and doesn't seem to get notified automatically of any comments.
The "get values" functionality should still work. Just tested it here again with the latest MIDI Designer Pro X beta version from Dan. Please ensure you have a bi-directional MIDI connection, i.e. MIDI Out from your TQ-5 should also go to your instance of MIDI Designer. Also ensure that the Audeonic StreamByter plug-ins are properly running. These are part of my layout and you could find them under Config > Connections > Input/Output Rules. Not sure if you need to be subscribed or have some Premium In-App purchase bought for this to function. Since I've implemented this layout a few years ago I've lost a bit track of what needs to be payed in MIDI Designer and what not. Perhaps Dan could help...
Greetings, Carsten (quadratschulz)

Pitch Envelope Yamaha TQ5

MIDI Target Manufacturer(s): Yamaha

Any chance of adding the Pitch Envelope?  YSEDITOR has it and it's something that sets it apart from the TX81Z.

I want to program percussion and having access to the Pich EG parameters would be perfect.

I am sorry, but the Yamaha TQ5 does not provide PEGs. See here e.g.: https://yamahadx.yahoogroups.narkive.com/uwx1XAJU/question-about-tq5-pitch-envelope-generator
