Midi bass


SOUND Midi Bass  on a single Intel p8031AH CPU. It is able to play 1 sample at the time sampled at a audio bandwidth of 16 Hz to 16,000 Hz.
Each of the 4 front pads are assigned to a sample stored on EPROM.

MIDI  Implementation is quite simple with classic note on/off, velocity and pitch bender. Also program change to switch internal sounds, channel can be selected from frontal switch from 1 to 14 only (where's 15-16?)

KEY LIMIT You can easily define the Midi Bass Low and High range on you keyboard for split. Just use the "key priority switch"

PRIORITY  By setting the key priority switch properly, it is possible to have 3 settings: last/lower/higher note
