The latest version of the Keyboard controller is available for download for the Beta Testers in the forum. This version unifies the definition of the scanning matrix and adds a NRPN control dump to allow the configurations to be recorded and replayed from a MIDI sequencer.

The latest beta release software is now available to the testers. This version is available for download from the the Beta Testers Forum pages, together with an updated version of the user manual. Basic configurations are now available on request, these will be configured for keyboard scanning and configuration via MIDI cable 1.

We have had some good feedback and requests for the keyboard controller and have already added some of the functionality to this release. We expect to have System Exclusive and Control replay functionality available in the next release, allowing data to be passed from one configuration file format to the latest one, during the beta program updates.

Keyboard Controller and Midi InterfaceA long time coming but Revision 2 of the Keyboard controller is ready for Beta testing, we have identified a couple of brave souls who will be receiving their units for testing.

Shortly we will publish the pinouts and connector details so you can start planning your project. The controller will be listed in the shop as a pre-order at a special introducatary price. We will also supply a bundle including the MIDI interface. All cables and  connectors will be listed at the same time to get you up and running.

The initial software release will provide basic but fully tested functionality. The software for the keyboard controller can be updated without any additional tools, just connect to your PC or Mac and copy the new firmware. This ensures that even the earliest of adopters will be able to keep their project upto date.

We have now delivered a small number of keyboard controllers to our beta testers. To allow them roll their sleeves up and get stuck in we have just opened the Beta testers forum. This is the place to ask questions and get your answer.

We will also release beta software updates and corrections to documentation for the testers via this forum.

Currently this forum can be only be accessed by our nominated beta testers for any of the Keyparts projects including hardware projects, software libraries and applications.

Raffle prize winnerAt last weekends Synth DIY in Cambridge, Keyparts had their versatile keyboard controller pre-production models running.

The keyboard controller was used to breathe life back into an old E&MM Spectrum Synthesizer, by providing a modern and reliable keyboard.

With the addition of the CV board the controller was programmed to emulate the operation of the resistor chain keyboard. The interface was a pin for pin replacement for the original keyboard controller PCB.

Simon was the lucky winner of a Fatar 61 note synthesizer style keyboard.
