Sysex Specification

George Mason University has done some analysis of the Roli Seaboard Block's sysex stream.  Messages *to* the Block are pretty much deciphered: no idea about messages *from* the Block, which are kind of a mess.  Help would be welcome.  However before I posted what we've got so far, I am waiting for confirmation from Roli that Section 6.5 of their EULA does not refer to banning reverse engineering of the sysex messages (I believe it does not).


None of this would be necessary if Roli just posted their spec.  It's crazy that they have not.



Hey Sean,


Thanks for asking about the BLOCKS SysEx messages.


The BLOCKS API is in the JUCE library, and we recommend that app developers use JUCE to support this, as the non-byte aligned concatenation of messages to and from Blocks is complex to parse outside of JUCE, as you've probably discovered yourself!


If you'd like to reverse engineer the messages, rather than relying entirely on the SysEx messages themselves, I recommend that you look at the JUCE source code. 


Please let us know if you have any questions.


Red

Thank you, Red.  Here are many of the messages received by the Seaboard Block.  The sysex pattern is pretty straightforward.  Will be checking out the JUCE source presently.
