I have some previous experience with MDP, using PCs, CCs, and so on, but I'm quite a noob using SYSEX, so I hope this thread can become a point of departure for anyone interested.
I'm trying to use my Roland FC-300 in SYSEX mode, but dont have a clue about how to handle SYSEX input even using the most basic elements, i.e: a button.
Midi Learn (Footswitch 1): F0 [41 00 00 00 20 12 20 00 7F 61] F7
Then, if the button is set to momentary, it does nothing.
If the button is set to toggle:
1- When the button is Off, press on the footswitch does nothing.
2-When the button is On and the footswitch is pressed, then the button goes off.
And here it is, the first questions:
How to handle such basic things when using SYSEX as input?
Why the elements behaviour changes so much when using SYSEX as input? (it is way easier using CC, PCs, midi notes, etc..)
