The problem is Alesis' MIDI specification for the Ion/Micron is still
not publicly available.
I think you have three options:
Hack Micronizer: http://mrbook.org/micronizer
Connect your Micron to your computer and use aseqdump or something like
that to check which parameter corresponds to which MIDI message or join
the alesis-ion Yahoo group to get most of the MIDI specs from the files
Then prototype your custom Micron GUI in Pd, Python or whatever.
Download the Program Decoder from Alesis
This Perl script encodes patches defined in text files to Ion/Micron
sysex files and vice versa. Maybe you can program a quick GUI to edit
those patch text files and an automatic transfer to your synth if the
underlying text file changed.
I've also build a rudimentary MusE instrument definition file for my
Ion. If it's still not included in the official MusE release it's at
least in the CVS repository.
PS: Or you could buy an Ion instead of a Micron ;)
