MIDIEX version 1.8
Updated by Mike W. Smith, 12/5/89
MIDIEX is a simple utility to transmit and receive raw System Exclusive
data between your computer and your synthesizer. MIDIEX cannot send a
"Request SYSEX" message to your synthesizer, so all received data dumps
must be initiated by the synthesizer. MIDIEX requires that a Roland
MPU-401 or equivalent interface installed in your computer to be able to
send and receive the data. This version of MIDIEX allows you to set the
IRQ level the MPU uses, set the base address of the MPU card, and set the
receive buffer size.
To set the parameters, use:
MIDIEX /B:nnnn /I:n /A:nnn
/B:nnnn is the size of the receive buffer in bytes,
/I:n is the IRQ level of the MPU, and
/A:nnn is the base address for the MPU's I/O ports,
(for hexidecimal numbering, precede the address
with a 0x)
The defaults are /I:2 /A:0x330 /B:1024.

PROGRAMMER's NOTE: MIDIEX has been completely rewritten and is now
compatable with Turbo C ver. 2.0. To compile the files, you will need
either Borland's Turbo C ver. 2.0, Microsoft C ver. 5.0 or later, or
Quick C ver 1.0 or later compilers, and Microsoft's MASM ver. 5.1 or
Borland's TASM ver. 1.0 assemblers. Make files have been provided for
both Microsoft MAKE and Borland TMAKE utilities.
