I cannot find any complete explanation of MIDI messages handled by the special MII version of cynthcart (1.5.0).

Is there a list somewhere?

Is it possible to change every parameters using MIDI, and not the C64 keyboard?

These are the Cynthcart CC commands:

0 filter resonance
1 filter cutoff
2 sound mode
3 fx mode
4 attack
5 release
6 pulse width
7 volume
8 tremolo level
9 tremolo rate
13 waveform all voices
14 waveform voice 2 only
15 waveform voice 3 only

I will add it to the next documentation version. I don't know the value range of the commands, but I asked Paul, the Cynthcart developer, to add this to his webpage and then I can link to it for the next documentation. He is working on some small bugfixes, too (some notes are out-of-tune and there are problems if you send MIDI clock signals to Cynthcart). I keep you updated in this newsgroup when I have more information.

Here's a handy command list I put together for myself so I can have all the Cynthcart commands in one place. Maybe other folks will find it useful til the documentation gets updated.

See Attached.

Thanks, that's very nice! I've added a link to your list to the Kerberos homepage.

Thanks for the mapping!

I got the Kerberos yesterday night and I got lot of pleasure using it...very intuitive (thanks Frank):
but my greetings goes also to Paul for his great piece of Cynthcart

I will go further on testing it, (and to mod my c64 to create a perferct syth/multipurpose machine!) to post next work in progress for all community of vintage c64 player...and for all who cares about this memorabilia.
