Am new to Dexed, but a DX7/TX816 aficionado. :D

As most DX7 editors (Opcode Galaxy, MOTU Unisyn etc.) have not kept up with Apple's changing software (for Mac users), can anybody tell me if Dexed can act as a DX7 patch librarian as well as a means of exchanging single patches with a hardware DX7?

I've a large DX7 patch library which I'd like to be able to sort out, if Dexed's peripheral aspects can come to the rescue. :pray:

Welcome! :-)

SysEx import all your patches into your Mac, then rearrange them in DeXed.

Hello and welcome !


You can import your Sysex from your DX7, rearrange them (and even create new Sysex from your existing one or even from scratch), then re-export them to your DX7 (and modify and/or export all previously existing Sysex).

Watch the tutorial that I made recently here:
followed in a very detailed procedure just two posts later, here:

And all presets that you make yourself in Dexed can be saved in Sysex files (see my tutorial) to be exported on your DX7 the same way.

The vertical list that I mention lengthily in my tutorial has a local menu which allows to export directly to your DX7.
