I have a tc electronic g major gathering dust for quite some time now. The problem is that due to its heavy use over the years lot of knobs etc are broken. But otherwise the unit works perfectly fine. So in order to program it I need an editor.
However ,although I searched extensively in order to find one I couldn't. Everything seems out of date and does not work. As a result I am thinking of creating my own editor on Max/MSP.
Now the problem is that I can't find any good documentation on tc electronic's sysex. By asking around I found that the preset request message should be,
in hex: F0 00 20 1f 00 48 45 (01-7F) 00 or 01 F7
which in dec is: 240 0 32 31 0 72 69 114 0 247
When I put this on Max/MSP everything works fine: I get a 614 long array which represents the patch I m requesting. Moreover I understand on which position is the numerical representation of each effect block etc. What I can't figure out however is how long a sysex message should be in order to let's say turn off or on an effects block ( for instance the reverb). And how to figure out the number for each effects block Any help is really appreciated as I am totally lost due to the lack of documentation. I really hope to be able to finish it and share it as a Max for live device in order to be working with Ableton live Any ideas?
p.s I send to tc electronic and they told me that the sysex documentation is not available anywhere
