Hi there everyone,
I hate to press the dreaded 'new topic' button right after signing up here, but while it seems like there is a massive wealth of info here, I couldn't find anything specific to my situation after diving about 8 pages deep into the existing posts...
I've had a Yamaha QY-70 for a long time, love it to death, know it pretty well. I have been looking for a way to make the QY's internal 8-channel mixer correlate with a real-world mixer, and purchased a BCF2000 after reading that it cooperates with SysEx stuff pretty well. I bought an Evolution U-Control UC33 a while back thinking it would do the job, and then learned the hard way that the mixer faders inside the QY, as well as other parameters I wanted control over in a live situation, were in SysEx values and not MIDI CC.
So, hopefully I haven't made the same mistake a second time! The good thing is, I do have a number of other uses for these two controllers in the event they don't work with the QY in the way I need them to - my DSI MoPho comes to mind - but I wanted to ask...help?
I have pored over the manual for the BCF and I'm really having a hard time even figuring out the right boot mode the thing needs to be in for the QY, as there's nothing else on the table but the two units, no additional keyboards etc. I also have concerns that I've bought this used (as most people today probably do!) and that there are likely settings in place from the previous owner that need wiping? Though I have seen here posts that say there's no such thing as a factory default on the unit, which kinda makes sense because it's a controller.
Anyway, I would massively appreciate any info - even pointing at other posts or threads! It seems like the BCF has one helluva legacy about it and that alone is a cool feeling to be a part of now!
