SysEx Librarian

1.4
16 May 2019

Sends and receives SysEx data from MIDI devices.

Overview

SysEx Librarian is a utility for Mac OS X which lets you communicate with MIDI devices using System Exclusive messages, also known as SysEx. The most common use is to backup patch data from synthesizers, although there are others (such as sending firmware updates). SysEx Librarian makes it easy to keep a library of the SysEx files you use most often, and to record new SysEx files.

What's new in SysEx Librarian

Version 1.4:
General:
  • Updated for macOS 10.14 Mojave, including Dark Mode
  • Now requires macOS 10.9 or later. If you're using an older version of macOS, use version 1.3.1 instead
Bug fixes:
  • Allow setting the buffer size for sending sysex. Some MIDI interfaces may work better with a smaller buffer size
  • Added menu items and key equivalents to play and record. Press space to play, r to record, R to record all
  • At startup, if sysex files can't be found, don't ask the user to find every single one
  • Updated MIDI manufacturer names and IDs
  • Show program changes as 1-128 or 0-127 depending on a preference
  • Increased the maximum interval between sent messages up to 5 seconds
  • Improved error handling at launch when the library directory doesn’t exist or isn’t writable

Quite funny: I've been doing midi bulk dumps from my machines since the eighties, when I first had a sequencer with a floppy disk (it was the Roland MC-300...) and always used Cubase or Pro Tools after that... until today! :-o Yes, only today I had the idea to search again for a simple tool to do that — I've only found MidiQuest as an alternative, a few years ago, but expensive and not satisfactory with my setup. How come that I missed SysEx Librarian? I don't know, but it looks great! My only regret is that it doesn't allow to compare or edit sysex files. I agree that it probably wouldn't work with many machines (my Korg Triton only sends one looooong sysex) but my Boss SE70 sends one for each preset and it would be nice to delete all the ones that are redundant from my former dumps. I admit that this would only be the cherry on the cake. :-) Anyway, using SysEx Librarian will be far more efficient than creating a sequence in Cubase or else, etc.

I am using this for a very long time to send midi ex to my beloved Nord Lead and Alesis Andromeda. If you need to send/receive midi data this is the one you need. Much saver then using a DAW/Sequencer.
