Make Ardour plugin send / receive Sysex


I am using the plugin Dexed with Ardour. The virtual MIDI in and outputs of the plugin are connected to a hardware MIDI interface for this channel.

Using a MIDI keyboard, I can play the plugin, and replaying the track will play the keyboard as intended.

But the plugin does not receive Sysex information (eg. send a patch) nor does sending a patch by the plugin affect the keyboard.

If Dexed is used standalone without Ardour, sending and receiving Sysex works.

So are there any settings to be made, or other ways to make Ardour transmitt any MIDI messages from and to the plugin?

And maybe someone with enough reputation could set up a Ardour tag please, there are a lot of ardour questions already around untagged. – dronus – 2019-05-23T17:16:28.757

This sounds like a question best addressed to the manufacturers, tbh. It sounds like a Basic Customer Support question.

TBH Audacity and Ardour questions need to be routed to their various communities. Don't think this is the home for product related questions personally unless it impacts on the wider canon of sound design. – Mark – 2019-05-24T14:38:38.723
