Sending NRPN from Max

Hi,

I am going to make an editor used to change the parameters of a hardware synth in order to make presets for the device. I am going to need to send out NRPN messages. I am currently researching how to format these messages and was wondering if anybody could help me get a better grasp on it as far as max is concerned. Basically I am looking for the best way to format such a message to be sent from max. i am thinking, at this point that i would just type in the hex for each controller that requires NRPN. Does this seem like a good way of doing it or is there a better way? I have yet to embark on this project so at this time I do not have a patch to post. As I said I’m in the research stage. Thanks in advance for any advice on the subject.

Hi,

you’ll find an abstraction for sending NRPN you can use in the XG-midi-
tools available here:

It will most likely require that you have the eminent Lobjects
installed.

Best,

I started building an editor to control the Spectralis via NRPNs. Here’s the patch. A bit messy at the moment but you should get the idea. Works fine.
