Oh my MPD

Post by dexter » Tue Jul 06, 2010 12:10 am

Hi guys,
I'm a happy MPD24 owner since 2007. My controller lives a lot, sees many party and experiments ...
My great friend MidiOX watches the input ... now I'll move the K1 knob - CH3 #10 controller ...

Code: Select all

 TIMESTAMP IN PORT STATUS DATA1 DATA2 CHAN NOTE EVENT               
 0000422C   5  --     B2    0A    01    3  ---  CC: PAN

 000043B1   5  --     B2    0A    04    3  ---  CC: PAN               
 00004411   5  --     B2    0A    05    3  ---  CC: PAN               
 000044A2   5  --     B2    0A    06    3  ---  CC: PAN               
 0000454F   5  --     B2    0A    07    3  ---  CC: PAN               
 000045FC   5  --     B2    0A    08    3  ---  CC: PAN               
Noting strange. Realy. Now, let's press down the so widely discussed MMC, then CC << button :

Code: Select all

         
 00039A98   5  --     B0    73    7F    1  ---  Control Change        
Great! My cables are well connected!
If you ares still here, you already asking : WTF?

Next, let's use our MidiOX and dump the magic sysex code below : (on the MPD, not your MidiYoke)

Code: Select all

F0 47 00 68 30 00 04 01 00 27 38 F7
Now, let's move the same knob, K1, starting from 0 and going upwards:

Code: Select all

 TIMESTAMP IN PORT STATUS DATA1 DATA2 CHAN NOTE EVENT               
 00095F87   5  --     B1    0A    01    2  ---  CC: PAN

 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 6B F7
 000965A1   5  --     B1    0A    05    2  ---  CC: PAN               
 000965A1   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 6C F7
 00096821   5  --     B1    0A    06    2  ---  CC: PAN               
 00096822   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 6D F7
What is going here? The still sends it's actual position, the B1 oo 05, and a SYSEX code SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 oo pp F7, where oo is the controller code 1-7 for the knobs, 8 - 0D for the faders and pp is the controller value, from 0 to 7F. All the sysex data dumped is common for ALL presets.

Now, let's press the << button :

Code: Select all

 TIMESTAMP IN PORT STATUS DATA1 DATA2 CHAN NOTE EVENT               
 000DA0AD   5  --     B0    73    7F    1  ---  Control Change        
 000DA0AD   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 40 00 02 0A 01 F7
 000DA55B   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 40 00 02 0A 00 F7


The B0 Control Change value, which depends from the preset is here, but we have the press up and down position also as SYSEX ... :D

Now press ANY of the other buttons, like FULL LEVEL, Preview, ABCD ... :D

La vie est belle, non?

I'll let you discover the oo et pp values of the Sysex code for each button.
Stay connected for few seconds more before rewriting your Bome's rules.

Let's go back to the K1 knob. push it downwards ... in a "normal mode, noting happens, the B0 goes to 00 (in my preset). But now he continues to send its position :

Code: Select all

 TIMESTAMP IN PORT STATUS DATA1 DATA2 CHAN NOTE EVENT               
 001308ED   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7F F7
 00130C26   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7E F7
 00130EA0   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7D F7
 0013117A   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7C F7
 00131416   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7B F7
 00131690   5  --     F0  Buffer:    10 Bytes   System Exclusive      
 SYSX: F0 47 00 68 41 00 02 00 7A F7
What does it means? That's right, A REAL INFINITE CONTROLLER :
Now, my example : making a 4 channel EQ, on for channels :
A snapshot will explain this better :

Image

Each send button, in the following order ECDB (standing for lo-lowmid-himid-hi) sends to a return channel with a lowpass-bandpass-bandpass-hipass 48db/oct filters, with a phase compensation, exciters, separate comp per channel etc. Sending all of them to Master, the A send remains unused. I'll not explain in more depth the setup of Ableton Live.All sends are set as Relative (lin) Signed bit 2. This is important for the following bome's setup :

How Does it works: You press and hold PREVIEW and select Between ABCD, for example A and C will route the K1-3-5-7 to the sends of channel 1 in live, and the K2-4-6-8 to channel 3 in ableton. Pressing Prev AB=ch 1 - 2, CD = 34 etc etc ...
Pressing only preview inits the setup; the FULL LEVEL also plays as another shift: FL + A sends all values to max, as relative controllers it sends few times the controller upwards; FL + 3 does the same with ch 3 etc... My PRESET button is set as a global SHIFT, and I use it to send a KILL EQ actions:

Here comes the Bome code. Come parts are inspired from this topic : http://www.bome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2347

Note that this is a first cut, now I'm preparing an ableton Control Surface Setup in Python to handle all that mess. It will take a while to complete it !
And, at last, there is another sysex to dump :

Code: Select all

F0 47 00 68 30 00 04 01 00 27 08 F7
It sends only the buttons sysex, not the controllers

I sniffed a lot more code from the MPD, but the first one is the greatest one :wink:

None of this information comes from AKAI, VYZOR or any other. The code was recuperated using MidiOX, MidiYoke, SendSyex from Bome and the Vyzex editor.

Hey Dexter,

are still woking on this project ?

I bought a MPD 32 recently and with your post i managed to get the magic sysex code for it:

Code: Select all

F0 47 00 6C 30 00 04 01  00 27 38 F7
Any progress on your ableton python script ?

I'm planing on developing something for this as well, but i'm pretty much new to the ableton python api and python in general.

I'am trying to figure out all the sys ex dump data from Vyzex.

If your in sysex mode and move a knob/fader or push a button, the mpd sends something like:

Code: Select all

F0 47 00 6C 41 00 02 00  62 F7 
( for knob K1 for example)

Which should be read as follows:

Code: Select all

F0 = start sysex data
47 = vendor ID ( AKAI )
00 = nothing
6C = product ID ( MPD 32 / 68 for the MPD 24 i guess )
41 = some kind of Mode ( 41 for knobs / 40 for buttons  i guess )
00 = dont know yet / most of the time it's zero
02 = how many bytes to come
00 and 62 = actuel data ( here 00 for knob 1 and 62 for its value )
F7 = end of sysex data
this is what i got for now...
cheers,
funkeeflow

hey guys

thanks for the sysex code, but I don't know how to use the sysex information to have real infinite encoders :
I made a python script with copy/paste other script to have my own,. it work with cc but knob don't act like infinite encoder when I switch to another device there are jumping value.
in the generic script they say

""" The following consts should be substituted with the Sys Ex messages for requesting
a controller's ID response and that response to allow for automatic lookup"""
ID_REQUEST = 0
ID_RESP = 0
GENERIC_ENC1 = 22
GENERIC_ENC2 = 23
GENERIC_ENC3 = 24
GENERIC_ENC4 = 25
GENERIC_ENC5 = 26
GENERIC_ENC6 = 27
GENERIC_ENC7 = 28
GENERIC_ENC8 = 29

but I don't understand how to manage it with sysex

is there someone who know to have a script for mpd's knob act like infinite encoder with device's parameters (sysex or nrpn shit)?

Hey dudes,
funkeeflow, thanks for this major update, all those MPD32 owners should be happy!
I Stopped any future development of my py scrips, first because python is (or was?) nor so friendly with sysex processing, and also, debuggin in Ableton is heeeel!
Few mounts ago I started building my own midi controllers using AMTEL AMT 385, all the maths, shifts and processing is done by a hardware, with a ns delay. I also started to completely transform my MPD24 with this technology. My Works, schematics and code are posted under Creative Commons on the Arduino's forum.

johanpollefoort, the tricky part is to detect if a pot moves up or down. It works by comparing current values with a global variable, and this resolves the "zero cross". This is tricky, and it works :) The code for this detection, bome syntax was already published in the main post:
Here are some cuts for pot 1 as example:

Outgoing: (none)
h0 and h9 are first set in a start-up script, they define the inc/dec level. Also, I nodded them temporary with a shift to produce kill EQ pots with wery small movement. It may be much easier to write this in Py, especially if you use tables and objects.

Hope this helps
Enjoy your day!

hey Dexter

thanks for helping
but it's too difficult for me to programming. I don't understand this language, so I found another solution, I put knobs on the mpd into nrpn, and then with bome I put them back in cc but in LinearBinaryOffset . And so it works, Ableton can understand that kind of message and there are no more jump

thanks for all

Hey johanpollefoort,
This is not a specific program language, simply an exported as text bome's script. Bome rules and presets, noting more :)

Hi and sorry for reviving an old thread!
I've been trying for hours now to adapt the sysex messages for my MPD24,
but without luck! :/
Can't use the Vysex software either because of retina display I guess.

What would I have to do to turn the encoders to do infinite controller in the year 2015?

Thanks and have a nice day!

Ok guys, in the year 2016, I finally found out how to get the messages described in this thread. Fantastic!
I had Lasse Munk (Rumkraft.dk) guide me through this via Max (not Max4Live, since it can't do sysex).
I've made a functioning Max Patch for you to use. Much easier than trying to send a sysex message from elsewhere (I tried Logic and Sysex Librarian), and the Max trial is 30 days, so you should be able to get this going.
I attached the patch as a file for you guys.

Don't let old hardware die!

Best regards!

you can also just use Send SX to send the sys ex string to the MPD!

Ah yes, my issue was I couldn't find a way to do it on OS X :)
