first of all thank you for making MidiBridge. It works great and helped me a LOT so far.
I am trying to map all transport buttons on the AKAI Synthstation49 to control Beatmaker 2. What works for now is START / PAUSE / STOP with the Stream Byter code below. Is there a way to also get REC / << Previous Bar / Next Bar >> to work?
The default MIDI CCs for the transport buttons are:
MIDI CC 115 - Previous Bar
MIDI CC 116 - Stop Song
MIDI CC 117 - Start Song
MIDI CC 118 - Record
MIDI CC 119 - Next Bar / Continue Song
The Stream Byter code that works so far:
B0 75 7F = FA # Start
B0 74 7F = FC # Stop / Pause
B0 73 7F = F2 00 00 # Rewind
Press any key to continue

This will depend upon what BM2 supports. Looking at the BM2 manual I don't see any MIDI controllable transport commands. Although we know that BM2 responds to MIDI start/stop and SPP commands, these are not documented there, so I guess we got lucky. There is no basic MIDI command for 'enable record' (although there are some MIDI/MMC record commands we can't generate those in the Stream Byter as they are too long and BM2 may not react to them anyway). However, the MIDI assignable CC's for main/instruments don't seem to include transport control, so I suspect not.
Maybe ask on the intua forum whether record or next/prev are MIDI controllable with a CC or some other message?
If they are, it would be easy enough to add a couple of rules in the Stream Byter to suit.
