Thanks to everyone for their help.

I'm using a PC-1600x, a Rev. 1 MKS-80, a Studio 5LX, and running OMS 2.3.8
and Cubase Audio XT 3.0.7 PPC on an 8100/110.

Then I think I might be using your patches!! I downloaded them from Dan
Nigrin's website.

Does anyone know where I can get the original MKS-80 patch for the PC-1600??

Yes, thank you, that solved the problem. When I connected the PC-1600x
directly to the MKS-80 everything worked fine. "STUPID @$%#&!! OPCODE!!"
Yet, I swore to soon. The Studio 5LX wasn't the problem. As it turns out,
Cubase is the problem. It's clearly buggy. It can record parameter values
from 0 to 100, it can play back parameter values from 0 to 100, but it
can't thru parameter values from 0 to 100 (or play them while recording).
This doesn't come as much as a shock as one would think. Until version
3.0.7 Cubase couldn't even record SysEx through OMS.
