      Hi,
      I have bcr controller, and in order to send it sysex messages I have to just
      send sequence of bytes (f0...f7) directly to midiout. The sxformat makes
      things easier, you could use it to create sequence of bytes for you. If you
      can simply send [240 66 64 110 2 95 79 value 247] seq. to korg, simplest
      form
      would be:
      [value]
      I
      [sxformat 240 66 64 110 2 95 79 / is $i1 / 247]
      I
      [midiout]
      BUT, the thing is usually more complicated, because of those msb/lsb/nibble
      thingies. That's why I like Lsx. To find out what I need to send, I used
      handy little app for bcr2000(birdie's bcr/bcf editor, if anyone's
      interested, more reliable than behringer's java app for me) to send various
      values to midi-ox app, and compared the data(for example, send max. contr.
      value to 127, capture, change m.c. value to 126, capture, compare, and so
      on...)
      > Then, how do i set one of my Korg CC values (they're "infinite" knobs) so
      > it will start at THIS value when i'll tweak it ? sysex too ? And how ?
      I guess this depends on controller type too. I didn't find a way to set
      particular controller value without outputting it, so I had to simply use
      [ctlout] and adjust 'deadtime' on hardware, to avoid feedback. I think some
      controllers have sysex-es for setting value without output(does any of
      bcr2000 owners know anything about it?).
