Thanks JCR! I Almost understand what is going on here. I did folllow your post and managed to get my pedal to react as it should with the sysex messages you gave. I am looking to get the boolean parameter 7: sp_tap_syn, to work. It controls tempo enable or not. I was just hoping for a way to lock to a time OR lock to tap tempo with the sending of a sysex (as if pushing down on the encoder). Sadly, I am a total idiot when it comes to programming. I honestly have NO clue what string of number would represent that command. I dont even have a clue what part of that command is for me to read and what part is to be sent. I fear I am asking questions about things that are many years ahead of me in programming. Thank you for the insight so far.
