I posted some files to the RFC-1 Yahoo group awhile ago:


rfc-sysex.txt has a description of the dump format, rfc-sysex.c
has code to convert between the binary dump and a C memory model.
It isn't an editor, but one could be built on top of it.  I had
code that would convert the binary dump to a text file that could
be edited, then converted back, but unfortunately I can't find it.

Get a small rubber "knob" of some sort, like the ones you can
screw on the bottom of a chair leg, or the feet that glue onto
the bottom of electronic equipment.  Something that already comes
with an adhesive backing is best.  It probably needs to be at least
1/4 inch thick.  Glue this to the center of an RFC switch.  This
focuses the pressure directly on the membrane switch underneath.
I would use a soft rubbery substance rather than hard plastic to
avoid damaging the membrane switch if you stomp on it too hard.

I have not tried this, but other members of the RFC group say it works.
