Reading and displaying "patch name" from sysex

can we have an additional gui object that can display the patch names from sysex?
Is a hex to ASCII conversion table required for this?

since this control is related to parsing patch data it could also provide additional functionality:

  • send patch request on recieving a “program change”, or other conditions. so user configurable.
  • send patch request on 1 click

Lua script can be used to get the patch name out of the patch dump sysex. That part is quite easy. I am a bit struggling with where and how to display that. I will think about what you suggest. Thanks!

can you help me out, Martin, on what lua functions are best suited for hex-ascii conversions in both ways?

What I would like to try on the short term is to to take a sequence of bytes from a patch dump, convert it into ASCII and then use it to change the name of a Group.

My next challenge with then be to set new names for SE-02 and OB-6 patches. That would really be cool.

A good starting point is this Lua example in the Github repository:
