Speaking of SYSEX is there even a good software tool that acts like a BCR2000? I would love something like that for converting CCs to learned SYSEX messages. I could just use my Beatstep to send CCs over USB to change SYSEX over USB to MIDI.
Now that is a mess, but it would work.
Not to mention the advantages of sequencing CCs from a DAW to a device that has no issue handling quite a few active changes.
