i'm looking for something to control my AN200 in the same way the software would, but without the software (since it's dated and doesn't run on my computer). I believe I will have to use sysex to accomplish this, as the midi implementation chart doesn't suggest any regular CC assignment to all those juicy features. Searching for a controller with the ability to transmit sysex brought me to the BCR2000. i heard on a forum there was custom software for the BCR2000 that extends its capabilities, which I am not sure I need but alright (this will be a learning process about sysex and all that for me, the first time diving in). The forum link mentioning this custom software referred to a Yahoo group, which of course is no longer in existence.
I'm wondering if anyone has experience with using the BCR2000 with this deck, or with its brother, the DX200, specifically to access those hidden features only natively accessible through Yamaha's XX200 companion software. If anyone could chime in I would appreciate it.
