Sysex Dump Freezes MiniBrute?
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:04:36 am »
I'm trying to save and load patches for my Alesis Andromeda using the MiniBrute as my MIDI interface. Unfortunately the MiniBrute freezes anytime it is sent a Sysex message from either direction.

Is this just beyond the functionality of the MiniBrute?

Foreign SYSEX is generally harmless (in that it won't overwrite the Mini's system data with junk from another synth) but a crash or freeze does not surprise me.

The MiniBrute is not (and cannot be used as) a USB MIDI interface. I've found that most gear that does not have a dedicated THRU jack won't pass SYSEX. Even some that have THRU won't do it.

Get a nice $10 USB to MIDI cable to go with your million dollar polysynth.
