MIDI 🎹 Events Documented

This page documents the MIDI messages from and to the Tickle instrument in the newest firmware.
If they don’t work as expected, make sure you are running the newest firmware or comment below.

The Tickle is sending the following MIDI note events:

  • The hexagons are mapped to :musical_note: MIDI note events with the fixed velocity of 100 and 0 when released. They are transposed with the arrow buttons.

All the other Parameters:

  • Absolute X position: Controller 2 (coarse, 7 bit) to be implemented: 34 (fine, 1 bit)
  • Absolute Y position: Controller 4 (coarse, 7 bit) to be implemented: 36 (fine, 1 bit)
  • Relative X position: Controller 1 (Modulation wheel) (coarse, 7 bit) to be implemented: 33 (fine, 1 bit)
  • Relative Y position: Bendin
  • Octave up/down: :arrow_up_down: Controller 16
  • Envelope Follower: Controller 17 (Audio must be on)
  • Encoder 0: Controller 11 (7 bit)
  • Encoder 1: Controller 12 (7 bit)
  • Encoder 2: Controller 13 (7 bit)

The Tickle is receiving the following MIDI controller events

  • LED 0: :red_circle: Red controller 46, :green_circle: Green controller 47, :large_blue_circle: Blue controller 48
  • LED 1: :red_circle: Red controller 49, :green_circle: Green controller 50, :large_blue_circle: Blue controller 51
  • LED 2: :red_circle: Red controller 52, :green_circle: Green controller 53, :large_blue_circle: Blue controller 54
  • Overall brigtness level: Controller 55
  • Built-in DC-offset filtering: Controller 100 (0-63 to deactivate, 64-127 to activate. Default = on)
  • Built-in audio gate on touch: Controller 101 (0-63 to deactivate, 64-127 to activate. Default = on)
  • Built-in audio expander: Controller 102 (0-63 to deactivate, 64-127 to activate. Default = on)

Overall we tried to conform to the MIDI Manufacturers Association’s standards for control change messages.
