The problem might be with CTRL 1 VAL 1.  Try setting it to 127 (actually, anything from 64-127).

I just want to confirm that you’re targeting the Bypass (and not Toggle between Bypass & Active).

I’m not familiar with the workings of the ES-8.  But it could be its switch action is set up as latching, rather than momentary.  That is, ON with one press; alternating with OFF on every other press.  You’d want ON with switch press; OFF on release.

It’s been a while, but I believe you can use PC or CC commands for Active, Bypass, and Toggle.
