Eos Family String MIDI TX Messages

With the release of Eos Family software version 1.9.5 and higher, consoles can now send MIDI Show Control-style messages (ASCII based, not hex) via Network UDP or RS-232 (through an I/O Gateway). 

These commands, like MIDI Show Control messages, are sent when a console starts an action or is triggered to do something. For example, if GO is pushed on Cue 2 in List 1 (Cue 1/2), the following string would be sent: Cue 1 2

Supported messages are as follows:

Command / 
Action 
ASCII Text
(What is sent) 
Comments
Go (Cue) Cue x y x = Cue List, y = Cue Number
Stop (Cue) Stop Cue -1 Regardless of list/cue
Back (Cue) Cue x y x = Cue List, y = Cue Number (same as Go)
Macro Fire Macro z z = Macro Number
SubDown
(Bump On)
SubDown a a = Submaster Number
(Not the playback it is assigned to)
SubUp
(Bump Off) 
SubUp a a = Submaster Number
(Not the playback it is assigned to)
