I've been struggling to build a control patch for the Oberheim Matrix 6r for the last days. I managed to get system exclusive messages into capture objects from the rack synth into max, but even though I followed the sysex message stucture as indicated in its midi implementation chart (http://www.youngmonkey.ca/nose/audio_tech/synth/Oberheim-Ma
trix6R.html) i still can't send the messages back to this old Oberheim succesfully.
the argument list i use:
sxformat 240 16 6 6 1 / is $i2 / is $i1 / 247
being $i2 the parameter number and $i1 the parameter value (so that a new value triggers the sxformat message to the midiout object every time it changes -1st inlet-)
what am I doing wrong? does anyone have experience with sxformat and this particular synth (or a 6 or 1000)? Most visual editors I find either don't work or are not particularly comfortable to work with (not good shortkeys and the like), plus I want to be able to do real time stuff with this great sounding synth
