Anyone know of an iPad app that can send SysEx commands? The end result I'm looking for is this: I'd like to create a set list page where it would have the list of songs, and each song name is actually a button. Once pressed it would send the necessary SysEx command to choose a Master Mode Program in my Yamaha Motif synthesizer, - in this 'Master Mode', the Motif does not respond to normal Program Change messeges and requires SysEx commands.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

You can do this - but only through system exclusive messages, I have made it work using the iPad app Midi Designer, and the Line 6 Midi Mobilizer.

The system Ex command for Master change is f0 43 10 7f 03 0a 00 00 xx f7

xx is the master number from 1-128, but remember it will be master -1 in hex, so master A07 would be 06, Master C16 would be 2E (not 2F)

Hope this helps - note if you use MIDI Designer to leave off the f0 at the start and the f7 at the end of the string above
