    My lighting software can send MIDI signals, but it requires me to send it in a very specific syntax. Here is an example from the user manual: Noteon 20 127
    I’m noticing that the qu mixer is expecting only numbers in the MIDI command. What can I do to bridge the gap between the two syntax requirements?

    Hi @Lightguy

    A MIDI note-on message is formed as
    note on | note | velocity
    The syntax for this is the same whether you represent it in binary, decimal, hex or something else.

    It looks like your software is representing the first byte with text and is then using decimal values.
    Whereas our MIDI protocol documentation shows messages in hex.

    So for the example you’ve put here, you would need to look up what Noteon is as a byte and convert the other two values to hex.
    Presuming ‘Noteon’ is a standard MIDI note-on message, that gives:
    Noteon 20 127 = 0x90 0x14 0x7F

    Hope this helps,
