    MIDIbox Newbie
  1. Starting up the dual manual organ

    Is there anybody who can answer these questions: 1. What sysex message I have to send to Kb to activate and deactivate the Break is make function for kb1 and kb2? 2. Is there any list of available functions controllable by sysex? 3. Can I send this message to standard Midi in? 4. Are there any special adjustments in KB which should be done for controlling by sysex? Frank
  2. Starting up the dual manual organ

    Finally all the functions are working. Only one small issue: It seems that the scanning frequency of Midibox KB under NG is not enough to get a certain amount of different velocity values. I have tried many fast/slow adjustmants however it seems that I can get only 8-10 different velocity walues from 0-127. I am able to tune it with velocity map function however the velocity resolution is notenough for fine playing of Piano and Rhodes sounds. It would need more velocity values scanned, I think 40-60 linear distributed vlues (0-127) should be enough. The most higher resolution is neede  in range of values 30-90. From 0-30 and over 90-127 is enough a lower resolution. Do you have any experience that what is the maximum achievable resolution with Fatar TP8 keybeds(when I am using Midibox KB under Midibox NG)? The possible solution is that I will use only a simple Midibox KB which is 10x faster (and probably have 10x more higher resolution) however in this case I am loosing a control of functions like Make is Break, Octave switch, Midi mapping. Any suggestion?   Thank you in advane!   Frank
  3. Hello,   I am starting the second phase of my dual manual organ project based on the GSI Gemini module. The first board is already started up (based on NG) which is used for scanning of 2 manuals and sending the info to midi info to channels 1-4 depending on the input bits connected to DIO port. Now I will design and build the second PCB based on the St32F4 develop.kit. I will connect button and led groups to the board via DIOMATRIX and Pots via AINSER64 boards. The board will control the first module via DIO port(Midi mapping, BiM, Octave -2 to +2). It should store 256 bank/presets. After selection of bank/preset the board will adjust the stored DIO bits and send Midi CC and PCH information based on the stored values/or actual status of the Buttons/pots. The Banks/presets should be stored on the SD card. The button and pot functions are explained in the enclosed excel file. My 1st question is: can I use NG, SEQ.....for programming of the explained functions or it is better to program it directly in Midibox? Thank you in advance!   Frank Gemini.xlsx

  5. Starting up the dual manual organ

    I have tried to send CC 123-All notes off event but the Gemini doesnot respond to that. Is there any simple way to send Note off evoent to defined Midi Channel from key 0 to 127? In worst case I will write 4x128 rows sending Note off from CH1-4 for allnotes.
  6. Starting up the dual manual organ

    Thank you for help. Now it works. Only one think is remaining. When I am changing the midi channel mapping it should send some all keys off signal because if there is some key pressed it keeps hanging (no key off signal is sent). Is there any solution?

    I have triedit....it is closertothe solution howeverthe situation is: 1. the velocity of the keypress changesthe note,the release(NoteOFF)is alwaysC-2 2. The key I am pressing is defining the velocity value For ex. C1 -gives velocity value 48, D1 - 50, E- 51...etc if I press slowly the key is for example C1 and fastly G5 etc but now there are the samevalues on both channels... Any idea?

    I have made a separate. NGC without any event changes. The NGC file contains only these 2 KB events. I have checked the layer and split function separately.  As I have said no any switching function applied in this. NGC file.  Frank

    Yes, this is the logic and it works, the problem is somewhere else. I have tried the simple layer and split function and there are the following problems: Layer: I am assigning the KB1 and KB2 to HW ID 1 , KB1 to CH1 and KB2 to CH4 EVENT_KB id=1 hw_id=1 type=NoteOn chn=1 key=any use_key_number=1 range=0:127  kb_velocity_map=map1  kb_transpose=0 ports=1000110000000000 EVENT_KB id=2 hw_id=1 type=NoteOn chn=4 key=any use_key_number=1 range=0:127  kb_velocity_map=map1  kb_transpose=0 ports=1000110000000000 1. At the first key press the midi event is sent to CH1 and CH4,then to other key presses are sending only to CH4 however each keypress is sending 2 on and 2 off signals to CH4 2. The other problem is that the 2 signals have different velocity value, it seems that the second key press event is sending higher velocity value, Split mode: EVENT_KB id=6 hw_id=2 type=NoteOn chn=3 key=any use_key_number=1 range=0:67  kb_velocity_map=map1  kb_transpose=0 ports=1000110000000000 EVENT_KB id=8 hw_id=2 type=NoteOn chn=2 key=any use_key_number=1 range=68:127  kb_velocity_map=map1  kb_transpose=0 ports=1000110000000000 It is sending only events to CH3 and not only until splitpoint however in whole range.   KB id 1 and 2 are assigned to the uppermanual and KB id 3-8 are assigned to the lower manual(73 key)
