[OT] Midi To Yamaha 01V


    Oct 04 2006 | 9:11 pm
    Does anyone have experience with the 01V and Midi control ? I can't find
    the "midi sheets" anywhere and i don't know where to find the correct
    controller numbers. There's a few things (.pdf, .xls) on the Yamaha
    website, but it's pretty obfsucated.
    Many thanks in advance

      A special guest appearance of Don Buchla with TrioMetrik at the Cycling74 event Thursday after AES at Recombinant Media labs.
      Don does not get out to play often so this will be a treat. He'll perform on a fully loaded 200e - an impressive new modular system he has been refining modeled after the classic Buchla 200 series. He played with us at a private concert last Saturday and it was quite wonderful.
      Also not listed but appearing with us is Jaron Lanier of VR fame performing on a Thai wind instrument.
      We go on first (6:30) so you'll have to hustle from the show.
      Thanks,
      Keith

      Can't check now (no 01V at hand, nor the right computer) but I sent
      MIDI to the 01V in the past. I don't know what you're after, but if I
      remember well, most of the parameters were set thru sysex.
      If you give me some details, I may have somthing for you tomorrow.
      Have a good night (trying to port some obscure C code to Windoze? ;-)

      I've got the full .pdf manual and an 01V.
      I would have attached it but it's too big for the forum 4,777kb.
      It's got brilliant MIDI implementation for a digital mixer, being from that era without USB or Firewire as standard.
      Is there anything in particular you need to know?
      I might be able to help but it's been a long time since i actually controlled it with MIDI/used it as a controller!

      Just had more of a scan through that .pdf and it's jam packed full of MIDI implementation info...pages and pages of MIDI charts and a whole chapter on implementing MIDI.
      It's mainly control changes, which are all assignable...it's a bit more limited if you're trying to transmit from it but it recognises more than most synths i've seen!
      Anyway, it's all in the .pdf link!
      Hope that helps,

      We use the o1v a lot here as both a controller and as a signal
      modifier. The most effective, and quickest., way to find out what
      MIDI can be controlled is by running MID from the o1v into a midiin
      object then through midiparse. As you twiddle the knobs, move the
      faders etc you will see what controllers are being effected and
      therefore how to control different aspects of the device. You can
      also check through the MIDI page on the o1v to get a sense of the
      possibilities and then map controllers appropriately.
      hope this helps too

      If you only want to control basic stuff of the 01v, it is easy: go to
      the mixer's MIDI menu, third page. There you can assign the controller
      number you want to faders, mute, pan, etc. Even to effect parameters
      (although I remember that some configurations with effects didn't work
      as I expected).
      One more thing, make sure that the 01v accepts control ins: midi, page
      1.
