The old Atari version of Cubase used to serve this purpose well with its 'mixermaps', and was running fine through all the VST versions, then Steinberg dropped the feature in SX1, I made a topic about it on their forums at the time, and even after 1,000 replies with like-minded people wanting this feature back, there was no word from Steinberg. However, they seem to have returned this feature in the form of 'device panels' in the current version, but that doesn't seem to be very stable, for some reason it doesn't save this information with the song, nor in a template (on the Atari, all my mixermaps would automatically load up with the def.set).

I made a couple of sysex maps for my DW8000 and Juno 1 in the environment section of Logic, and even though they work, there are a few flaws; you can't delete data from one slider once you have recorded other data, so there is absolutely no room for error if you are doing realtime sysex control. Also there is no good way to reduce the amount of steps; it assumes every parameter has 128. You can make a macro, but it only half works; you still have all 128 steps, but divided, for example, you want 3 steps, it splits into 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3... (x128) which is very fiddly.

Are there any sequencers out there now that have decent recordable, realtime sysex control?
