System exlusive messages have nothing to do with sequencing or making music.
Basics: System exlusive functions in midi software is simply a way for manufacturers and users to download software into midi instruments and devices through midi connections. SO lets say I wanted to upgrade the software in my Alesis using system exclusive. I would download the software off the internet, etc, and then have my sequencer open the software using system exlusive. Then I would set up my Alesis to recieve the upgrade and the computer would transfer the software information to the Alesis through the midi connection. The only time I have been interested in using sys-x was to ad patches to a Roland D-50.
: I've been sequencing for quite a while with my QS8 but I don't know
: much at all about system exclusive
: I downloaded the sys x list available on Alesis's website but I don't know
: what this info really means or how to use it.
: What can one do with sysx? I currently use Cubasis (I'm planning on
: upgrading to Cakewalk Pro Audio) . Can someone show me how to
: use sys x with Cubasis?
: I've seen where I have an option to record system exclusive in Cubasis
: but I don't know what this really means.
