System exclusive on 560M : registration over midi

9 posts in this topic

hi there

I cant seem to find any details on the casio site detailing a list of sysex midi messages such that I can change my registations over midi. 

It would be really nice for live performance to allow the reg's to be assignable over midi.

Can anyone help here.

Unfortunately, a MIDI implementation document has not yet been released for the PX-560. Even if and when that happens it might not contain the information you need. For instance, the recently released MIDI spec for the MZ-X models (here) doesn't reveal how to change registrations over MIDI, assuming it is even possible.

Registrations are referred to as "stage setups" in the MZ-X midi manual.  Obviously copied from the PX-5S manual.  So not sure if that information is accurate.  This needs to be tested.

Ah, that clears up a few mysteries. :)

 

So, if we assume that the PX-560 works like the MZ-X models in this respect at least and that, in turn, the MZ-X models work like the PX-5S, and that despite being copied from the PX-5S MIDI document the relevant information in the MZ-X MIDI document applies and is accurate (aside from the difference in terminology) then the following may work:

 

Stage Setup Number Switching by Bank Select Message and Program Change Message

The bank select message and program change message can be used to switch the stage setup number. The change target can be switched by the bank select MSB. The change target is specified by the program change number. The bank select LSB is ignored.

 

Change Target: Stage Setup 

Bank Select MSB: 70H

 

When Stage Set.Chg NRPN is enabled by Instrument settings, number switching by bank select and program change is ignored. For details about stage setups, see the Instrument’s User’s Guide. 

 

I haven't time to test it out right now. We're counting on you, Stu. :)

Ok. I see a mistake already.  PX-5S system settings midi section has a stage setting change choice of either NRPN or PrgmBnk.  The other models do not have this menu item.  I'm going to say this section of the manual needs to be deleted for the MZX series.

Perhaps this, _IF_ the above described bank select MSB method works with the PX-560:

PS. More about possible iPad apps here.

Yes, we need to know the name of this app, it is a must for me. I need to be able to have a set-list for every song so I can move quickly between sounds/registrations.

Can some one from support help here,

Thanks.
