sc88sysex is a command-line program to send and receive system exclusive data
to/from a Roland SC-88 device using ALSA raw MIDI ports. This program is a
Bash script front-end to the ALSA amidi(1) utility.

Roland uses two types of System Exclusive messages: RQ1 (data request 1) and
DT1 (data set 1). This program can build both types calculating check-sums,
and has some mnemonic symbols for addresses, sizes and commands. It can be
used or extended for other Roland and GS devices with few changes.



$ sc88sysex -a BULKDUMP -z ALL
Sends a bulk dump request using the default MIDI port to the
SC-88, and stores the received data in a file named

$ sc88sysex -c GSRESET
Sends a GS reset command to the SC-88

$ sc88sysex -s dump.syx
Sends a data file "dump.syx" to the SC-88.

$ sc88sysex -a '40 00 00' -z '00 00 04' -r deftune.syx
Gets the master tune parameter from the SC-88 saving it on a
file named "deftune.syx"
