Quote from: cags12 on January 08, 2023, 03:07:41 AMHey Robert,I know the MIDX-20 is mainly aimed as a MIDI toolbox for Roland/Boss devices, but here is a question. How challenging is making a non class compliant interface compatible with MIDX-20 like you did for the GP-10?I've been tinkering with the Line6 Variax VDI USB interface by capturing its traffic and I can see this is basically a MIDI interface with proprietary driver (like the GP-10). Tried connecting it to my MIDX-20 but as expected the connection failed. My idea is to instead of using a RJ45/MIDI cable mod (which has its own challenges and it's not for everyone) having the MIDX-20 acting as an host to the VDI interface could open up the avenue to many Variax users to buy the MIDX-20 to accomplish MIDI control. Even better a Bridge implementation would allow easy control of advanced settings that are normally done only via SysEx through the PC Workbench app. Thoughts?

You need to invest in a PICKIT 3 (abt 50-60EUR) for programming/debugging the MIDX-20. If you feel tempted to try we can discuss on e-mail. I suspect existing code mods would be "moderate" effort. After establishing successful connection, the SysEx needs to be captured and simulated inside a "bridge", triggered by incoming CC#.

It's not rocket science when 99.9% of the code is already written and in front of you.I never went to university by the way, so your ahead of me Another option is for me to buy yet another guitar I found a nice looking jtv-59 for 750 EUR... GAS!!!

Quote from: tele1974 on August 11, 2023, 03:18:14 AMExcellent. Thank you very much. Do you do a preorder list of people who want to order. If so I'd like to be on that list.
Quote from: CodeSmart on August 13, 2023, 12:49:25 PMI'm making 50+ units. There will be units available.
