How could it not be similar? :)

This is just a few Wish Tcl scripts, but they actually do work.

Well, sorta.

It can read some settings in realtime from the POD, and some only
after you manually click Read POD. It can change the mode to Tuner or
Manual, change patch Names, and it can Save settings on the POD. It
detects when you modify anything on the POD.

But what it doesn't appear to do is allow me to tweak the settings and
have it change it on the POD. It's supposed to work, but it doesn't. I
emailed the author already.

This is a very good attempt, and if it can be perfect for what I need,
if it could change the settings on the POD (some features aren't
controllable on the POD unit itself, as I'm sure you know).

There is a bit of a workaround, it appears... Set up the settings how
you want on the POD, then Save... the settings to a sysex file. Then
Open... the file up again, and your POD will light up EDITED. Save
POD, and it's set. But it doesn't work for the software-only features,
such as reverb type.

Anyhow, how close is your app to being done? The author of this app
hasn't done anything since May last year, so I'm not sure he'll be
responsive to me... I might look at the code and see what I can figure
out... But if you're close, I would be willing to test it and give you
feedback too. I would like to start coding on something, and I haven't
yet decided what.
I've been wanting an app like this for a while, and last I searched I
found nothing, but tonight my luck seems to have changed for the
You can email me off-list if you like.
