+ 1 Harley  :thumb-up: :wave: . One thing I've noticed is we all seem to have in common is serious GAS Lo  >:D .
Another project that fizzled was a programming interface for the MP2, it had some "legs" on the original board but then  :dunno: .  I remember having a library program years ago (Win98 days) that interfaced with a bunch of kit but also let you customise a module for other gear. I was too busy recording back then and never got around to using it.

I wonder if any members have some sysex programing expertise ?

Ah yes I remember that, too bad it never got finished. Would have been great to have a PC interface for the MP-2.

There was a program that could do a lot of the effect units and synth and stuff, I think it was called midi quest.So I did a search for it and it still exists. But to bad, still no ADA support.

The pro version says you can create new editors, they also say you can request a unit to be added, probably just need to give them the sysex commands list.

Dante at some point used and external MIDI thingy with rotating encoders and buttons to program [parts of] the MP-2; IIRC, the gain block and EQ, maybe more..

I did?   :lol:

I think I got a midi controller to run some CC commands in my MP-2 back in the day. I haven't hooked up that controller in a long time - it's a 64-key keyboard with some faders and volume pots, nothing fancy.

There has to be a sysex option out there that we can customize to work with an MP-2. If one of the big brained individuals on this forum comes up with a way, I may be able to hack a decent interface together  O0

I guess the problem here is that we don't have any sysex info about the mp-2?

We need to get the MP2 sysex implementation, maybe Monty can help ??  I assume it uses the standard calls plus some ADA specific extensions ? There's a bit at the back of the MP1 manual, I suspect some of it will be the same.

I just went through all the ADA paperwork I got from Jur and I found some good information. I'll scan it and put it here.

Okay here it is.Had a quick look at it and it seems to be for the MP-1,MP-2,MB-1 V1.xx,MB-1 V2.xx,Quadtube 150 and the Tritube 75.

That looks pretty promising! Now, what do we do with it?  :dunno:

There seems to be 2 ways to go.  Easiest is to use a library program (like the one MJMP posted the link for) which lets you define your own unit (sysex commands) as one of its modules.  So the interface work is done (user interface and midi comms) albeit with their look and feel/widgets (eg sliders/pots/buttons etc). Though this option seems to come with the pay for it pro versions ??

Or we write a PC program (in Visual Basic or Python or C++ etc), where we'd have to write (or purloin (which may decide the prog. language we use)) all the various widgets and user interface and comms (basically write a library program or part thereof).

While there's good information in the ADA midi sysex pdf, I'm not sure it's all there (well maybe for the MP1), but from my quick researching it seems sysex isn't too hard or complicated, just have to get your head around it.  I spotted a sysex primer youtube clip (yet to watch) in a google search which is a good start (regardless of which direction we choose).

That does sound easiest, if it works. I should be able to make different UI graphics to look like an ADA. Worth a shot

Okay and maybe if that works we could also make a handheld version of it in a small box ? (with an arduino or something)

And yes there seems to be missing a few things, like appendix B and C.

I also found some sysex stuf for the MQ-1 but that's more or less the same as the MP-1.

Could be a fun project to make, although this is more your expertise. But a handheld that's something I could make. And I guess we'll make this an open source project ?? So anybody can help if they want.
