If you've gotten that far, you've got it.

Exactly! You fill in the parts of the data structure that you need, and 
clear out
the rest.

That's precisely what I thought too. For the "next up" controller (which 
to have a programming interface that's at least as convoluted as this 
one), I
could buy 2-3 FCB1010s. I can live with it's quirks. It does what I need.

Now...when you get your Repeater, remember that you have to offset the PC 
in the Repeater's manual by one because the FCB uses a different starting 
(one uses zero, the other uses one, I don't remember which is which right
offhand). It's apparnetly a common thing between MIDI implementations. The
pecular exception seems to be the PC for "Play", I don't know why. CC 
remain the same.
