;; CAKEWALK.SXT (Cakewalk system exclusive Dump Request Macro file)
;; Cakewalk and this file syntax are Copyright (C) 1987, 1988, 1989 by
;; Greg Hendershott.  All rights reserved.
;; This file is loaded and "compiled" by Cakewalk when it starts.  If
;; there are any syntax errors, they are reported and Cakewalk exits.
;; Lines with a semicolon (;) in the first column are ignored.  You
;; may use them for comments.
;; Each Dump Request Macro must be one a single line.  Each line must be
;; of the format:
;;       "<name>" [/<from> <thru>/] F0 <data> <F7>
;;  <name> is up to 35 characters enclosed in quotes.  Appears in Cakewalk
;;  menu.  You may want to follow our "ellipses" convention:  If your request
;;  macro will require the user to input something, place "..." after
;;  the name.  E.g., "FB-01 Configuration...".
;;  /<from> <thru>/ is an optional looping command.  A counter will be
;;  incremented from <from> thru <thru>, where <from> and <thru> are in
;;  decimal.  <thru> must be >= <from>.  On each loop, the following <data>
;;  bytes will be sent.  If you need the value of the loop counter in the
;;  <data> bytes, insert an FFh at that point.  It will be replaced with
;;  the loop counter value.  (See more below).
;;  <data> is any series of bytes notated in hexadecimal.
;; Note that normal MIDI data bytes must have the high bit clear: i.e.,
;; must be < 128d, 80h.  Since values >= 128 can never be part of a System
;; Exclusive message, we can use some of them as special "opcodes"....
;; OPCODES:  Special <data> values that are not sent:
;;  FC : Arithmetic-OR of next two bytes.  The next two bytes or results
;;       of opcodes are OR'd together and the result is sent.
;;  FD : Prompt user to "Input Channel/Unit"; send what they input.
;;  FE : Prompt user to "Input Patch Number"; send what they input.
;;  FF : Send loop counter value.  This counter is incremented each time
;;       through the loop.  If no loop was specified, this sends a 0.
;; Many of the Dump Request Macros below have comments.  Study them for
;; examples of how to construct your own for synths not in this list.  You
;; will need to use the MIDI Implementation Chart in your synthesizer
;; manual to obtain the required message format.  Hint: When the manual
;; notates a value as, for instance, 1110bbbb, where "bbbb" is a value that
;; can vary, you should take this as clue to use a user-input opcode to
;; supply the value.  If bbbb is the patch number, then you should use
;; the FE opcode to let the user decide which patch she wants to dump.
;; Please share your work with us, so we can share it with other users
;; of your synthesizer!

;; Note the OR opcode in the previous example. The FB-01 wants the

;; FC is the OR opcode, which OR's the following two bytes and send the

;; 28 is hex for the 00101vvv bit pattern, with vvv = 0.
;; FE is the "Input Patch" opcode.

There is also the 2009? Sonar VS edition which came with the Roland V-100 controller/recorder. It's basically a cut down version of Sonar 8. There is a update for it in 2010 or something v1.04 which makes the controller and software good with win7. Otherwise it works perfectly in WinXP.
