I would like to ask you about a Gem S2 Turbo which i’musing very smoothly as a controller for my other synths (along with Bome midi Translator) and it can do miracles.
On its own it’s very capable for its internal sounds, but….
i wonder if somebody can help me with using an external controller to control some of the S2 internal parameters.
I mean the whole chapter on sysex is so very complicated because of the secret data (asci numbers enumeration, sys_id.h files, missing sdk data list etc etc). The way it’s described on the manual’s midi appendix (page xii) is very confusing.
I guess there should be a file along with some software to read some data on a computer or something. Maybe data included in the MIOS (the main rom chip).
Could somebody explain to me the sysex internal data flow goes for the s2?
F0 2F 5c 0B oc dd bb pp < file name > ck F7 is the data request message.
Up to the oc part it’s clear. The asci numbers for bb, pp, can be clear.
But the dd, <file name>, ck is very confusing.
Here’s a link for the manual. Everything is described in the midi appendix around pages x - xiii.
