In the click&ports layer in the environment, route that port only into three new instrument objects (via a channel splitter) which each output to the three D-550's.
Now, MIDI coming in on the PC input port will get sent directly to the D-550's, to let you send them sysex from the editor without hitting the Logic sequencer.
Give it a try, or if you have more specific requirements, get back to me and we'll see if we can get you going...

How would I go about doing that? That way I can cable port 8 to my midi devices and use it as a dedicated programmer channel.

Syntho wrote:Ok, here's where I'm at.
I cabled port 8 to the multiinstrument and I thought by bypassing the sequencer input and everything else, the SysEx data would get through ok.
I've also got the Sysex Midi Thru thing ticked in the settings, and I made sure that nothing in the midi filters is being filtered, but neither of those things seem to help.
Somehow Logic is surely stripping or changing the SysEx data and I don't know why. I've already tested my patchbay and it works fine in Patch mode (I tested another patchbay and it worked fine too). Even with bypassing the other objects and bypassing the sequencer input, Logic insists on messing with the data.
