Here is how to add velocity sensitive midi input to a Korg Minipops 120 using the uniPulse.
Check Minipops-120 Single Outputs for information on how to add single outputs.
Audio demo coming soon…
Jacob Korn was kind enough to share his documentation of adding midi to the classic Vermona DRM drum machine using the Tubbutec UniPulse interface.
Why would you use the uniPulse for a machine that already has midi? According to Jacob the DRMs original midi has severe timing issues and with the uniPulse it is much tighter.
This guide shows you how to use the Tubbutec uniPulse interface with a Korg Minipops 7.
The config file for the Korg Minipops 7 is here.
– Full velocity control for all 14 instruments
– Velocity controls guiro pitch
– Midi sync (optional)
The image below shows the trigger points. You can solder the uniPulse trigger outs directly to these points. An exception is the Guiro, which is connected to the uniPulse CV-out with an additional diode.
This guide describes how to install uniPulse into a Korg KR-55 and thus add midi trigger and sync. Some of the instruments react to velocity. The KR-55 can also be synced to the midi clock.
