Hello, I would like to ask for recommendation. What would be the best linux application that is capable to receive bulk data dump from external sequencer over MIDI? Memory on my Yamaha QY70 is running out and I need to backup the contents. I do not have good experience with dumping data as song, it gets changed a bit sometimes.

Thanks, Jan

I solved it very easily by using amidi:

First I use amidi -l to see what is the midi device. Then

To receive dump from MIDI device: amidi -p hw:2,0,0 -d -r sysex-bulk-temp.hex
To send dump to MIDI device: amidi -p hw:2,0,0 -d -s sysex-bulk-temp.hex
