Activating/deactivating Multi Mode via Midi/Sysex string - anyone succeed?

Hi,

The Blofeld Sysex documentation clearly states that you can “request” and “dump” the global parameter values of the unit.

The second byte of the parameters is delineated as follows:

1 0..1 off,on Multi Mode

This would seem to indicate that if you could capture the Sysex string from a request, change the second byte to 0 or 1, you could toggle the Blofeld into and out of multi mode.

Has anyone tried this? If so, were you successful?

I have the tools to do this, but am somewhat concerned that I might “brick” my synth. I would appreciate hearing about your experiences.

Thanks,
Dov

Does not work for me. I send and receive the whole global settings at once (don't know another way). The downloaded dump shows Multi Mode on/off but sending the other value has no effect on the device. Looks like a read-only parameter, just reporting the current state.

This is the byte that changes:
Waldorf 80 bytes    F0 3E 13 00 14 02 (01) 04 …
Waldorf 80 bytes    F0 3E 13 01 14 02 (00) 04 …


Edit: Ignore this post, it is entirely wrong. See post below.

Thank you Peter.

I did pose the question to Waldorf support last week. So far no response. I suspect that the answer is that this is not supported.

If I hear differently, I will report back here.

HA!
It works.

My information above was entirely wrong. I was working on my blofeld editor in Max, just changed the device id of the blofeld and forgot to do so on the outgoing SysEx. You definitely can change the Multi Mode state. The blofeld should be in play mode.

Data: F0 3E 13 (device id) 14 02 (Multi on) ...
To Blofeld    SysEx        Waldorf 80 bytes    F0 3E 13 (01) 14 02 (01) 06 31 …

Data: F0 3E 13 (device id) 14 02 (Multi off) ...
To Blofeld    SysEx        Waldorf 80 bytes    F0 3E 13 (01) 14 02 (00) 06 31 …

Amazing!!!

You’ve given me the confidence to run this through my BomeBox (it’s almost trivially easy to do, fortunately, in that environment).

Truly appreciate your time to take this experiment to completion!

This means it should also work with MIDI SOLUTIONS EVENT PROCESS, I suppose.
As you have the ability to send sysex strings.
