[Solved] How Does SysEx Work On MC-8?

I don’t yet grasp what syntax the MC-8 is expecting for a SysEx message.
The input fields have no letters for hex as far as I can tell. I’m just
getting a “Must be 0-127 error”

I am trying to use the following:
F0 08 23 11 05 03 00 7B F7;
like most modern tools the MC-8 is stripping the F0 and F7=
08 23 11 05 03 00 7B;
MC-8 also stripping the leading 0=
8 23 11 05 03 00 7B
and the trailing bits B is being stripped down to:

anyway, MC-8 will not accept this message. I am using the computer editor. I find no instructions for using SysEx in the MC-8 User Manual. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks,

On the editor, you need to use base 10 (integer) values instead of hexadecimal values. So in your example, it will look something like this:

Thanks, James :smiley:
I see now the how to is in your MIDI Glossary
