Recently installed the mod-chip/upgrade from inque to allow the JX-3P to work with 'any' midi controller (i think 1 bit resolution less but it's still rocking!).
Yes that mod. Well I bought the DIY version and built the merger box myself which didn't take too long (and my soldering iron has seen better days)... it was all pretty simple if you follow the instructions and no 'very difficult part' installing it into the JX-3P itself (so long as you've done some soldering before).
As for setting up the BCR to work with it, I cheated and pre-programmed the BCR using the JX-3P midi editor from the mod maker and sending out the CC from my PC in learn mode so the set up took as long as it takes to click LEARN>move knob on bcr>move slider/button on software editor X all the functions (Not that many). Then I went in and fine tuned the lighting top (for top row) ie 'pan lighting' for the tuning or DCO level mix. Also fine tune the 'range' of data (as specified in the CC data that comes with it) for ex some parameters are only upto 64 not the full 127. Or you may need to adjust to your own tastes for amount of knob turn to parameter change... this is probably easier to do using BCRManager software or whatever.
short answer is it's very simple to setup.
As for JX-8P I used learn mode from JX-8P (2 midi cables) and selected the parameter then moved the edit slider on the 8P which sent the SYSEX to the BCR (not CC on the 8P).
and it's worked like a dream ever since
Will add pictures later inc various stages of the process.
