I'm new here, joined in as I just acquired a BCR2000 that I primarily wanted to use to control a Roland XV-5080 and make sound design a bit more fluid. So I'm getting into the nitty gritty of writting the definition file for it. My knowledge of sysex etc. is quite basic so I'm hoping you guys will help me along.
So Anyway, here's what I came up with so far (with the help of the XV-5080 manual, p.290).
; Patch tone
1F 00 00 00 | 00 - 49 | val ;TVF Cutoff Freq
1F 00 00 00 | 00 - 4D | val ;TVF Resonance
First of all, I wasn't sure how to figure out ChecksumMethod and ChecksumStart values, but I'm making a guess they relate to Roland's proprietary checksum method so I picked the values from the JV-1010 definition file that was already there when I installed BCmanager. Is that correct?
Secondly, out of interest, what does DevicePosition relate to?
Finally, can you tell me if the 1st two sysex lines that I entered here are correct (again if I read the manual properly)?
I got the address from "3.Parameter Address map" p.290 of the manual (I specifically want the ability to edit the temporary patch) then Cutoff and Resonance where taken from the bottom left of p.297. Are these lines written correctly? Is that all I have to do then, list all the parameters I want here?
Thanks you for reading.
