Subject description: Using Sysex function to store an absolute default patch
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hey all,

I've been experimenting with g2 lately with using SuperCollider/Tidal and I'd like to store the initial values of a performance before I send any CC and change the overall parameters
the idea is to recall a patch with the "default" parameters at any given time.

I am thinking in order to this, I can use the 'dump one' function to get midi data in Sysex format and then parse it in SuperCollider later to be sent as MIDI CC back to G2.

I was curious if this would be the right way of doing this or maybe some other folks have done this before

Open to any suggestions

Why not use "All Controllers Request"? (manual page 149/150)

Hey, thanks for the reply! Doesn't it only give me the CC'd parameters rather than all of the parameters in the patch?

On a side but related topic, I think one of the issues I am having right now is not being able to preserve a patch properly. My patches seem to be evolving a bit after each session hence this effort to keep a default state.

Ah yes .. CC-ed ones only ... so indeed you'll have to ask for the patch and then parse that ... or just send the whole dump back maybe ... yuck Confused

O .. and welcome

Delighted to be here Smile

So yea that's what I was thinking. However, I am unsure about the G2's Sysex protocol. also can't say that I have much experience using Sysex but in SC the format goes like this:

Code:
 m.sysex(Int8Array[0xf0, 0x00, 0x20, 0x3c, 0x02, 0x00, 0x61, 21, 54, 0xf7]);


Above is an example of the clock message for Machinedrum.

I am sure people has experimented with it before but my initial search didn't really give any results. Maybe you can point me to the right direction?

thanks again Smile
