A way to request and recieve DT25 current settings via MIDI? (SysEx dump?)
by pomor on 2012-12-15 18:07:01

Dear Line6 experts,

While DT25 firmware 2.0 allows great flexibility in controlling and configuring the amp via MIDI, is there a something like a SysEx command that would make the amp send its current settings back through MIDI out in response?

Thanks,

Al.

I've asked this question to Line6 a while ago but I've got no response yet. The amp uses SysEx to identify itself to the monkey and it uses SysEx for updates but there is no SysEx documentation publicity available. So we are on our own here.

In my editor (here) I use a sequence of different CC commands to request the parameters from my DT. These CC values were found by trial and error and some parameters are still missing (mostly reverb related).

It's a bit frustrating because I don't know if I haven't found the right sequence yet or if it's just not possible to get these parameters. A SysEx implementation would be great and solve a lot of the problems.

Thanks Rolf, this is a very interesting find. It would definitely help a great deal if line6 documented these CC's or, if they implemented it at all, SysEx commands for doing the same. Great job on the editor by the way! I was thinking about writing something like it but you beat me to it :)

You're absolutely schooling Line 6 here. They should have included software like this, cross platform, when they rolled out V2. Instead, they market the thing like it easily unlocks many capabilities of the amp, when in reality, they left the job half done. As it stands, it's still mostly a glorified power amp for an HD500.
