Yamaha TG-33 send .sysex.

Unread post by scoobydoo123 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 4:14 pm

Hello everyone,

I am the owner of Yamaha TG-33.

I would like to know how to send my sysex files to Yamaha TG-33.
More specifically, how to set parameters in "UTILITY" (Receive Ch, Vector Ch, Prog Change, Bulk & Device #) to send successfully?

Can I count on a step-by-step instruction?

Thank you for everything.

TG33 manual p.89-90 ...

UM MIDI Receive Channel = OMNI
UM MIDI Vector Channel = 1
UM MIDI Program Change = ON
UM MIDI BULK System Exclusive = ON
UM MIDI BULK Device = ALL

16 multi bulk dump 'LM 0012MU' = 3346 bytes
64 voice bulk dump 'LM 0012VC' = 37631 bytes

Anyway, you need a good quality usb-midi interface.

Whatever data you send using say MIDI-OX, make sure you slow the speed of the transfer down to allow the data to be received in full and intact.

Taking advantage of the opportunity I have one more question that bothered me. Is it possible to load to TG-33 or SY-85 .mid files? Having only a single .mid file and not having .syx? I have some patches/soundbanks, but only files in .mid format.

Can someone explain whether the .mid file contains the same messages as .sysex (in this case, the voice/sound)?

So far, I've been using SysEx Librarian on Mac, but as the name suggests it only reads sysex files. Midi files failed to upload. I tried some time ago the MIDI OX program, but somehow I could not send it to my TG-33.

Thanks in advance for any valuable advice.

Regards

MID files only contain embedded SYSEX, so is there a tool out there (like your DAW) that allows you to open a MID file and save off the SYSEX?
