by using the program "diskCopy" to create a .img file?

actually i think one should just get a TC fireworx or a H3000 instead. ;)

IIO, I have no TC fireworx or a H3000. I have a CBX-D5. The idea here is to make good of hardware that would otherwise be boat anchor.

Cyberish, the CBX extension might be pertinent if you got Logic, but in this case I'm not sure it would be of any use. I think CBX support was incorporated into Logic afterwards... I do think you should nevertheless upload it here, as I'm sure someone will eventually need it.

cant u just simply use the cbx-d5 in the way in which it was originally meant to be used + have it fucntion normally?

The CBX-D5 is a 2 in, 4 out audio converter/processor that works with SCSI.
For doing digital audio, I have MUCH lighter/compact/capable/dependable systems to do that now. Not counting the fact that software to use the CBX are very few, very limited, and quite unstable. What is of interest in that machine is the built-in audio processor, which is like a SPX-900. If it could be just be used as an external SPX-900, I'd have something of useful.

here we go:
----------------------------------------------------
here are my observations on the sysex MIDI messages sent by "MixdownCBX-D5" to CBX.

Source switch set to "DAT"
F0 43 78 40 00 40 00 00 02 30 32 F7

Source switch set to "analog"
F0 43 78 40 00 40 00 00 02 30 33 F7


first four are always the same. F0 Sysex header, 43 78 Yamaha ID and sub-ID, 40 parameter dump.
next 00 is channel nr. 40 denotes a "common" parameter (most of the time it is 00, ch message)
00 is parameter nr. 00 02 is byte count (never changes), 30 32 are the parameter's value, in Yamaha's twisted value (zero is 30 30, 127 is 37 46), F7 is sysex trailer.

ch. 1's volume set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 00 00 0C 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 1's volume set to "127"
F0 43 78 40 00 00 0C 00 02 37 46 F7

ch. 1's volume (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 00 00 06 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 1's send 1 (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 00 00 10 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 1's send 2 (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 00 00 11 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 2's volume (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 01 00 06 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 2's send 1 (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 01 00 10 00 02 30 30 F7

ch. 2's send 2 (in "FX sends" block) set to "0"
F0 43 78 40 01 00 11 00 02 30 30 F7

FX return "FX 1L" vol 1 set to 0 (note this is a "common" parameter)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 14 00 02 30 30 F7

FX return "FX 1L" assigned to "out 2"  (note this is a "common" parameter)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 0C 00 02 30 31 F7

FX return "FX 1R" vol 1 set to 0 (note this is a "common" parameter)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 16 00 02 30 30 F7

FX return "FX 1R" assigned to "out 2"  (note this is a "common" parameter)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 0E 00 02 30 31 F7

FX nr change to 1
F0 43 78 40 00 40 27 00 02 30 31 F7

EQ mode "on" (DEQ)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 20 00 02 30 32 F7

EQ mode "off" (THRU)
F0 43 78 40 00 40 20 00 02 30 31 F7
------------------------------------------------------

I still can't put my finger on that elusive "input rec monitor" thing...  it should be
F0 43 78 40 00 00 00 00 02 30 31 F7 for ch1 and
F0 43 78 40 01 00 11 00 02 30 31 F7 for ch 2, but it doesn't work!!!
When I arm the tracks in Logic Audio, the switch works because I see audio on the output meters, but NO MIDI command gets sent!
I'm stumped by this one. Very frustrating, as this command is crucial to the project.

P.O.

Hi there, I am new to the thread and I stumbled upon it because I am in the process of programming a Behringer BCF2000 control box for my CBX-D5. I was able to get sound and effects out of it. Even effect over the 4 audio busses work now..
Thanks to you guys I was able to resurrect this great interface now.. The codes you provided were mostly very useful. I found a lot more and programmed them in the patch.

If anyone is interested in the software patch I made for this BCF2000 controller I can send a working preset for that machine. It was a hell of a job but i love to share it.
It is not finished yet because I am working on it right now. See photo. The phone dial thing is a effect preset "chooser" that I build using an Arduino Uno that can choose a preset fast by dialing in the number. I have used the SysEx commands in this topic for it.

By the way I have learned a lot on my G4 with Mac Os 9 and am now on Mac OsX10.9.5
Happy coding everyone.. 8)

I have a BCF 2000 . You have it working in Mac Os 9?

I use it on OS X mostly, in BabyHUI emulation mode inside Protools > 6
Looking for MacOS 9.2.4

I have used it on Logic Pro, mostly worked just fine but nowadays mix more in the box with automation. Since I have a great editor for it (check BCManager on the mountainutilities.eu) I can send SysEx codes from the controls instead or in addition to the CC's that are programmed from the Behringer presets. Perfect for my CBX-D5 now. If I could use DP on MacOs 9, I would consider buying a vintage iMac for the CBX-D5 audio recording now that I am so far... But I would have to find a suitable version of DP in that case

I also tried Protools First, but it never opened good on my Macbook OsX10.9.5
It crashes even after several updates. So far I am left in the cold from AVID Never got an answer from them, despite me asking for support. I guess they love their paying customers a bit more..
