I need help understanding more about (with detail) on how I can make these MIDI SysEx files from my windows 7 computer using the Reaper DAW software (or Traction 4 if that would work too…or anything that would be the best to use) to work with the LP-16 for a live performance. Or is there anything about this on YouTube or as a PDF manual? I want to MIDI control my X32 Behringer Producer mixer and a TC-Helicon Voicelive Rack(and maybe light control) while the LP-16 is playing the multi tracks. I understand that I have to get the Manufacturer MIDI ID from each item if I’m correct. I have only seen tutorials about MIDI CC#’s and SMF/SysEx files using Mac Pro tools DAW programs but no Window DAW programs.

Seriously….does any one know how to get this unit to work with the MIDI information while the tracks are playing? I wrote this message(above) about a few months ago and no response. I know the technicians are working on the U24Track to get the MIDI updates to work which I’m waiting on that too since I purchased that unit a while back. Any info would be great.

Let me try to answer your question, which, by the way you wrote 1 week and 4 days – not ‘a few months’ – ago
In order to playback a MIDI file all you have to do is to copy your MIDI file alongsite with your wave files to the song folder and it will be played back by the LP-16 when the song is played. (or use the Playlist Editor to add the MIDI file to the song)
Unfortunately we do not have the information which Controller or MIDI SysEx commands are needed in order to trigger a specific function on a specific device through MIDI. SysEx (System Exclusive) commands are manufacturer propriatary and/or specific a device. So you have to refer to the user manual of the device you want to control in order to determine how to create the SysEx Commands (normally you would do a SysEx dump of a certain patch or setting on the device and record this to a MIDI file with your DAW).
If the device can be controlled by MIDI Controller Messages you also have to look up the necessary MIDI messages in the device’s user manual
In order to actually create the MIDI file you can use just about any DAW (e.g. Cubase, ProTools, Logic…). Please refer to the user manuals of the DAW of your choice in order to determine how to create a Midi file that contains Controller and/or SysEx Messages
The uTrack 24 MIDI functionality is being worked on and should be part of the next firmware update which is expected to be released in Q1.

Thanks for your response. The reason I mentioned about the time it took is that when I go into the Forum to read other quotes and responses that after a week or 2 goes by and the date that the person sent the message still says a few hours ago. But, I do appreciate the help on this as I have looked everywhere about doing this kind of programing and everyone was just vague about the subject or talked around it. I know your products are still pretty new and I haven’t seen many You Tube tutorials or information on it. I’m really hoping to get this up and running in full strength soon and I would love to be the 1st to demonstrate it on You Tube about both the LP-16 and the U24 Multi Track Player. I figure that I will just go with the Reason DAW software to program both the Multi Tracks and the MIDI files for controlling the other external effects unit and mixer.

So, do I need a MIDI controller or a sequencer to run the LP 16 MIDI files into an external effect processors or when I want to change scenes in my Behringer X32 mixer? If so what is the best compatible type to use?

You can connect the X32 directly to LP-16.
But in your MIDI-File the channel and commands had to fit the X32 commands described in the X32 MIDI-Implementation PDF.
You can find it on behringer.com
