Roland JU-06A definition file?

Has anyone created or found a Pyramid definition file for the Roland JU-06A?

If not, then I might go ahead and create one myself! But I thought I should check here first.

If there is none here, you can find the full midi implementation here:

Bit of copy and paste work

@pepijnkok I’m attempting to create the Definition File here (my first one!) and have a bit of a n00b question for you. I’m seeing CC Messages that overlap, and looks like they’re defined by the below on page 1 and 2 of the PDF.

  1. Model: JU-06A
  2. Model: JU-06A (Control Surface Mode)

I’m creating the definition file based on #1 above (Model: JU-06A) - but from looking at Roland’s definition file the above two share some CC Message numbers, i.e. looking at 3 on both it controls something different.

  1. Model: JU-06A - 3 - LFO RATE
  2. Model: JU-06A (Control Surface Mode) - 3 - VCF FREQ

Could you clarify the differences here? From looking at a synth such as the Volca Bass there’s only one set of CC Messages to choose from and is a little more strait forward (for me at least) - ok, appreciate any insight you or anyone else can provide - going to plow ahead with creating definition file based on #1 above and will post here as well, cheers!

Here you go, just tested and working wonderfully, cheers!

I don’t have the synth in question, but I would say, ignore the control surface values. It seems more to be when you use the synth to control other gear.
