Reprogram XPC8F attached to Alias8?

Trying to reprogram the 8 faders on an XPC8F tethered (correctly) to an Alias8, using the Livid Editor. The controllers need to be CC28-35.


The Alias8 refuses to respond to the following sysex, which should be correct - according to the OhmRGB documentation:
F0 00 01 61 07 21 1C 00 1D 00 1E 00 1F 00 20 00 21 00 22 00 23 00 F7

But this code may not apply, or any such adjustment be possible using the Alias8 as "host." Does anyone know?

  • @Moon -


    Thanks so much for your excellent guidance. From your instructions, I was able to figure out everything.

    As mentioned above, I got my (inappropriate) information from the online OhmRGB documentation - the only source of sysex guidance for any Livid controller (relating to programming expansion units) that I could find.

    FYI, there is one extra byte pair at the end of the complete sysex that does not relate to the expander ports; have no idea what it might do.

    FWIW, here is my complete sysex; it programs the Alias8 faders/knobs from bottom up, to CC20-43, with Master at CC7. Also *both* expander slots to CC28-35 (this way I can use either one I choose).

    240, 0, 1, 97, 11, 10, 36, 0, 37, 0, 38, 0, 39, 0, 40, 0, 41, 0, 42, 0, 43, 0, 28, 0, 29, 0, 30, 0, 31, 0, 32, 0, 33, 0, 34, 0, 35, 0, 20, 0, 21, 0, 22, 0, 23, 0, 24, 0, 25, 0, 26, 0, 27, 0, 7, 0, 28, 0, 29, 0, 30, 0, 31, 0, 32, 0, 33, 0, 34, 0, 35, 0, 28, 0, 29, 0, 30, 0, 31, 0, 32, 0, 33, 0, 34, 0, 35, 0, 42, 0, 247

    Thanks again for your help.

    P.S. I did file off the tab on one end of the XPC expansion cable to reverse insertion on that end. It might be helpful for all this info to be posted in the documentation for the Alias8 and perhaps also that of the relevant expander boxes.
