MINIM CONTROL COMMANDS

Hi,

Just got a Minim. I would like to get into programming the remote MIDI and SYSEX commands that are available. The documentation on this isn't comprehensive though. Looks like there are some errors with the titling of some of the MIDI sections of the addendum.
Also, the SYSEX is listing in decimal which is a little confusing. 
Can you provide or create a more detailed data for this?

  • Hi ADFA,

    I'm happy to improve our documentation.
    What did you see that wasn't titled correctly?

    You are also suggesting that we list sysex examples in hex as well, is that correct?

    Is there any other specific information that you were looking for that was not available in our Minim MIDI Spec Document?
  • Hi Moon,

    thanks for the fast reply. Firstly, i think the Minim is a great product. The pads are not super responsive so I wouldn't recommend them for finger drumming but as a general controller its good.
    As far as the docs go:

    On the "settings channel" docs there are a few things i don't understand.

    Maps page - all good.

    Tables page - How does this differ from the Maps page? there is some erroneous excel programming on the RHS.

    Fader LED colours page - What is the "191" under "message" on the RHS? I.E "{191.0.1}"
    Is this also for other Livid products?

    Piano functions page - More of that "191" in the message data. Doesn't seem to be necessary for the functions to work.

    LED Direct page - "190" in this one.

    Output control page - Has Sliders parameters for key and controller. Is the slider not just controller?

    Output config page - On RHS it has "DUPLICATE" and "Output control" "for 116 for 112 for 111". What are these?

    Control Output con... page - What is the flip function? On RHS it has "DUPLICATE" and "Output control" "for 116 for 112 for 111". What are these?

    Tilt pages - have not looked at these yet.

    Could you give me an explanation of these things as i am not sure about them.
    Yes, SYSEX in hex would be great thanks.
    If i can get my head around these things then I should be able to create an IDevice based MINIM configurer using MidiDesigner and/or Lemur. Unless of course there is an app coming out ;)





  • Fader LED colours page - What is the "191" under "message" on the RHS? I.E "{191.0.1}"

    191 is CC Channel 16, so that message is
    Channel 16, CC 0, Value 1

    Piano functions page - More of that "191" in the message data. Doesn't seem to be necessary for the functions to work.
    - Correct, this is for a software developer, 
    so that they can create scripts that put Minim in certain Key's and Octaves by MIDI Message.

    LED Direct page - "190" in this one.
    Yes. Like the other, but this is a Channel 15 CC.

    Output control page - Has Sliders parameters for key and controller. Is the slider not just controller?
    - The slider can act like a giant button if you want it to (disable controller, enable key).
    -- Similarly, it can do both at the same time.

    "Output control page - Has Sliders parameters for key and controller. Is the slider not just controller?"
    Notes by the document creator. I just deleted them so they don't confuse anyone else.

    "Control Output con... page - What is the flip function?"
    Flips the operation. Note that I updated this CC to 112 in the documentation.
    - For a slider it swaps the top and bottom.
    - For an FSR, it makes it return to value 127 when it is released (rather than 0).

    We are not going to update all of the documentation with duplicate sysex entries at this time, but you can pretty easily convert these things using python, or a spreadsheet software like Excel or Libre Office Calc.
    Let me know if I can help you more with this!

     

  • Thank you. I will give all that a try
