Sysex Base

Sysex Base is a MIDI sysex file manager for iPhone and iPad. Back up your synth sounds, organize libraries, and load them back onto your synths! Designed to be quick and easy to use.

  • Record and send sysex data via a connected MIDI interface, or wireless MIDI
  • Organize your sysex files into folders, rename them, delete them, etc.
  • Open sysex files from other apps such as Mail, Dropbox, Google Drive
  • Export sysex files to other apps just as easily
  • Quickly view the data inside of a sysex file, including the individual bytes, the Manufacturer indicated, the file size, and the number of sysex messages in the file

Also, Sysex Base allows you to record incoming sysex data and transmit sysex to your synth at the same time! So you can even do backups of older synths (such as the Casio CZ series) that require a message to be sent to them to trigger a data dump. These trigger files can be saved within Sysex Base like any other file.

What a great buy, worth every penny! I use iPad in a performing rig with hardware keyboards and sound modules. As of this writing I use iPad 2 and iOS 7.0.4. Sysex Base not only backs up and restores my hardware user program banks, but the Open In function lets me import new banks from my libraries in Dropbox, GoogleDrive and other locations. I can easily save and sort all my content in Sysex Base file structure which is easy to setup and use. This is a great addition to my iPad synths, DAW and controller apps. Developer is quick to respond to questions. MUST HAVE app for anyone using a mix of iPad and hardware devices!

For what I needed - send sysex from the ipad to my YAMAHA DX7s - the app worked just fine. Midi device used: iRig Midi. Congrats!

Good app for sysex transfers

Works nicely with dx7 and other sysex enabled synths for transferring patches.

Very recommended!!

I use this app with my Yamaha DX7 II FD E !, in which patches load without any problem. Until today it has not presented problems. I have been in contact with the developer and technical support is excellent. I hope to further develop this application in the future. (translated from Spanish)
