Hello,
This is my first post on here so I hope all you experts may provide me with a solution to my problem which is as follows :-

What System exclusive message do I need to insert into a cubase project I'm working on to enable a drum machine to commence its sequence which
starts NOT at bar 1 but at bar 20 ?
As I understand it, this might be a generic command open to all sequencers therefore doesn't need a specific makers ID etc etc.

Looking forward to your comments,

Sir Norman Bonus.

Hello,

If Cubase thinks you want to enter normal midi, then it's prob quite right to restrict the data to the range of 0 to 127 (although I wonder if there might be 'exceptions' to that rule).

But I would have expected Cubase to allow the entry of SYSEX, and that should allow up to FF, and include the values you want. BUT, is Cubase being 'clever' and/or 'helpful' and allowing SYSEX to be entered within the preset F0 and F7 bytes, or does it complain at a single byte SYSEX instruction? How does entering SYSEX work? Are there other options at that stage? Are you entering data into a midi file that is going to be 'played', or is there some way to SAVE and LOAD the midi data that you are trying to use, whereby the SAVEd file could be accessed and manually edited?

In Cubase look up the following, it may help?

"Getting Into the Details/Synchronization/The Project/ Synchronization Setup dialog/MIDI Clock Destinations"

This may be the section for setting up Start and stop messages.

And if you're still struggling to find out how to enter a "Start" command into the MIDI file using Cubase,
then why not download the freebie Anvil Studio, load your MIDI file into it, and do the edit there and resave.
See the attached pictures.
It took me less than a minute to do the edit there!

Thanks for that info John, the only drawback is this isn’t a midi file, it’s a Cubase Project File ( .cpr )
Once again syncing Cubase to the Electribe isn’t the issue. Starting and stopping the Electribe is, but via a Start/Stop command from Cubase. I can’t fathom out how to input any code above decimal 127 from Cubase but Kenton does it, thru Cubase, no problem !
