Sending Sysex to external synth

May 24 2012 | 7:47 pm

Hello guys,

A few days ago i bought a new hardware synth that needs sysex to control some parameters. I've decided to make a little patch with m4l to control it with live but i have absolutely zero experience in this, so i did a little research. I installed the Leigh Hunt extension to get around the restrictions of live and came up with the layout as seen on the image i've included with this post.

Who can tell what i'm doing wrong here?

You can’t use sxformat in this manner, it sends out a single int sequentially. For the lh_midi externals to work correctly, you have to send them a list. Use sprintf instead.
