Can you edit Minitaur's CC implementation?

Post by wrelzein » Thu Mar 05, 2020 12:12 pm

I'm thinking about getting a Minituar and am wondering if you can edit any of its MIDI CC implementation? For example, can you edit the CC for the filter? I want to know because I'd like to use it with some keyboards where I can't map the knobs (like the Bass Station 2). I've checked out the manuals and am not thinking so, but I also realize the Minitaur has gone through a lot of changes over the years so things may be different. Much appreciated.

CCs cannot be changed as of firmware v2.x.

The Minitaur is hardly alone. Frankly the best way to address this is to use a proper MIDI controller whose controllers can be assigned.

CC implemenentation can be changed via SysEx. ...
Set MIDI CC Map:
F0 04 08 18 [xx] [yy] 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 [mapping data] F7
future update will allow arbitrary mapping of parameters to MIDI CCs via SysEx.
Documentation will be forthcoming at a later time. ;)

I never could find the documentation about that SysEx but it's usable. Here's what I managed to sort out using the Editor plugged into C6 (no UI to modify the CC implementation but this SysEx is also used for CV mappings).

[xx] [yy] : unknown, leave as '00 00'
[mapping data] : 01 00 [CC num] [internal param num]

[CC num] : any number between 01 and 7F except 78, 79 and 7B which are reserved for CV mappings. 00 = no CC mapping

internal params num list:
01: aEG Attack
02: aEG Decay
03: aEG Sustain
04: aEG Release
05: fEG Attack
06: fEG Decay
07: fEG Sustain
08: fEG Release
09: VCO1 Level
0A: VCO2 Level
0B: VCO1 Waveform
0C: VCO2 Waveform
0D: VCO2 Frequency
0E: VCO2 Beat Frequency
0F: VCO Gate Reset
11: Filter Cutoff Frequency
12: Filter Resonance
13: Filter EG Amount
14: Filter Keyboard Amount
15: Filter Velocity Sensitivity
16: Volume Velocity Sensitivity
17: Trigger Mode
18: Release
19: Key Priority
1B: LFO Rate
1C: LFO clock divider
1E: LFO KB Trigger
22: Filter LFO Amount
23: Pitch LFO Amount
24: Bend Up Amount
25: Bend Down Amount
26: Glide
27: Legato Glide
28: Glide Rate
29: Glide Type
3A: VCA Output Level
3B: Ext Input Level
41: Mod Wheel
(missing the param numbers for Filter EG Delay, Filter EG Hold and Amp EG Hold)

more than 1 CC num can be mapped to a parameter and more than 1 parameters can be mapped to the same CC.
