In case it isn't obvious, what sucks about this is that you probably cannot use this method with a continuous controller to sweep the parameter value through it's range.  Each movement of the knob/slider would have to calculate a different sysex message to set position 0, position 1, position 2, etc.  I'm pretty sure TouchOSC doesn't support that.  

TouchOSC my or may not support it, but one thing I  know.. I DONT SUPPORT IT!

As the parameters I would have liked to have put under control of TouchOSC were the sliders on the sequencer, I think its a no no.
The thing I was hoping to fix is that on the EF303, the sliders are, by default handling notes in the case of the synth) or sequenced parameters in the case of the efects section. YOu may also adjust the slide amount, the gate time, the velocity from these sliders, but then you must enter a new mode. It would have been handy to have these sliders all laid out in one screen and be able to adjust them live, but this means figuring out all these hex thingys 16 times, one for each step, TIMES 4 (one for each OTHER mystical parameter) This aint gonna happen!!! At least, not without many mistakes, and as you say, if I cant send the checksum anyhow.. its basically imposible!!

Thanks for going thru all this for me, Jeff, its very mucg appreciated, you mail is a keeper, gone to Evernote, Im sure IM gonna need this at some time.
