Can max write an actual .syx file?

i have a sysex string in max and i want to write it as an actual .syx file, not a .txt file with the string in it, but an actual .syx file which i can send directly to a hardware synth with an external sysex librarian application…

any suggestions where to start?

i used [capture] with a write message, this did allow me to write a text file with the string but not a sysex file…

from text it probably wont work, you´d need someting like [fileout], which we dont have.

where do you need these .syx files? most sysex applications can import midi files ith sysex strings inside, too, that could be the way you get them created from within max. i believe sysex is just raw hex, starting with F0 and ending with F7, just as a sysex string inside a midi file.
