Send sysex to external synth from Mac via Deluge
I’ve got a bit of an esoteric problem. I’m trying to update the firmware on my Waldorf Microwave 2.
Apparently all I need to do is send a midi file containing the relevant sysex to the Microwave. However I’m currently lacking a midi interface for my MacBook Pro and cannot send directly from it to the Microwave. I tried to use the Deluge as a midi interface/hub but it doesn’t work.
The MacBook Pro (2019 model) can see the Deluge (it appears as an interface in the midi setup Apple app) and I can create a midi instrument for the Microwave in the audio/midi app but when I try and send using either Ableton or a program called Sysex Librarian the Deluge play light goes on and off and it looks like it’s attempting to play the file in the Deluge.
Is it possible to use the Deluge as a hub/interface to send sysex data to an external synth?
Thanks in advance
