Can Casio CDP-130 be controlled by external software

Recommended Posts

I have a CDP-130, and would like to have a software interface to it, so I can set metronome speed and things like that, instead of just using the function keys and never knowing what speed I have it set at.  Possible to select other options too.  

 

Is this possible?  Is it possible through MIDI?  Will it accept MIDI, and not just send?  If I were to write such software, what resources could I rely upon, i.e. a list of command codes, etc?

I do not remember that metronome speed parameter was mentioned in any  MIDI specifications.

You can go to official MIDI site and check MIDI specs in order to answer on your question..

To those who own CDP series instrument.

I suspect that CDP may have more voices than available through buttons.

If CDP built on some standard MIDI chip - it is likely that it has at least 128 GM instruments in it.

To check whether my assumption is correct use any DAW and try to adjust program parameter.

If anybody will try this(or already tried) please share your results
