What is this?

The goal of this dataset is to document the MIDI CC and NRPN implementation of every device. Anyone can contribute their favorite synth to this dataset, and anyone can use this dataset.

Synthesizers (and other MIDI-compatible instruments) accept 'Control Change' messages. These CC messages change the device's performance and patch parameters. You might use them to control your synth's filter cutoff point, amplification envelope parameters, and more. The implementation of MIDI CC messages (and their higher-resolution brethren, NRPNs) varies widely across manufacturers and even devices made by the same manufacturers.

How do I get the data?

Use the list of devices below to navigate. Each one has a table of all the CC and NRPNs we could find for it. You can also download the CSV spreadsheet for each device from its page.

How can I contribute?

Check us out on GitHub. Each manufacturer has its own folder, and each device has its own CSV file (a spreadsheet). Pull requests, issues, and comments welcome!

You can also download any of the spreadsheets, make changes, and email them to us - we'll take care of posting your changes. Each device's page has a 'download' button that will give you the raw spreadsheet. Send your updates to midi@midi.guide.
