SysEx Messages

All OWL SysEx messages start with the manufacturer code `0x7D` and device ID `0x52`. This is followed by a Command ID followed by a variable amount of data. All MIDI SysEx messages start with `0x70` and end with the byte `0x7F`, and must contain only 7-bit data.

Command ID Parameter Name Description
0x01 SYSEX_PRESET_NAME_COMMAND Patch Name
0x02 SYSEX_PARAMETER_NAME_COMMAND Patch Parameter Name
0x03 SYSEX_CONFIGURATION_COMMAND Get or set configuration value
0x10 SYSEX_FIRMWARE_UPLOAD Begin firmware upload
0x11 SYSEX_FIRMWARE_STORE Store firmware
0x12 SYSEX_FIRMWARE_RUN Run firmware
0x13 SYSEX_FIRMWARE_FLASH Flash firmware
0x20 SYSEX_FIRMWARE_VERSION Firmware version string
0x21 SYSEX_DEVICE_ID Device ID
0x22 SYSEX_PROGRAM_MESSAGE Program Message
0x23 SYSEX_DEVICE_STATS Device stats
0x24 SYSEX_PROGRAM_STATS Program stats
