Sequential Prophet 6 Instrument Definitions File (CC Values)

RIP Dave Smith

NOTE: This is for CC control of the Prophet 6. I’m REALLY curious to see someone do an NRPN version of this!!!

Ok with this one I included my automation lanes in the way I’d like to see them:

VERSION 1 # Currently, this should only be 1.

# Supports all alphanumeric ASCII, and ' ', '_', '-', '+'
# Can also be omitted or NULL to not override the current track name, e.g. "TRACKNAME NULL"
TRACKNAME Prophet6

# Can be POLY, DRUM, MPE, or NULL
TYPE POLY

# Can be A, B, C, D, USBD, USBH, CVGx (x between 1&4), CVx, Gx, or NULL
OUTPORT USBD

# Can be x (between 1-16), or NULL -- this is ignored if output port is not MIDI
OUTCHAN 11

# Can be NONE, ALLACTIVE, A, B, USBH, USBD, CVG, or NULL
INPORT ALLACTIVE

# Can be x (between 1-16), ALL, or NULL -- ignored if INPORT is NONE, ALLACTIVE or CVG
INCHAN NULL

# PC
# Syntax: NUMBER NAME
# number must be either:
#   - A number (for simple PC)
#   - Three numbers, delimited by ':', which represent PC:MSB:LSB. You can put 'NULL' to not set the MSB/LSB.
# PC must be between 1...128
# MSB/LSB must be between 0...127
[PC]

# CC
# Syntax: CC_NUMBER NAME or CC_NUMBER:DEFAULT=xx NAME
# DEFAULT_VALUE must be a valid number between 0 and 127

Also curious about adding NRPN. I can’t really figure out how to interpret the ”7 or 14 bit depth” expected by the Hapax and some of the ranges (0-1, 0-255) expected by the OB6. I assume the Prophet 6 is similar in that regard.

I tried it with the OB Matrix 1000, the available depth values (7 or 14) limits a lot its integration, which depending of the parameters uses 1, 2, 3, ,5, 6 and 7 for depth values.
Using a depth of 7 for parameters that expect 6 is usable, playing in the range 64-127 in the HAPAX.
I tried with parameters that expect depth values lower than 6 and found it completely unusable.
I hope Squarp will implement extra depth values :slight_smile:
