  • Controlling Hammond Sk1 from Alesis VI61MIDI

    Reaching out to anyone who understands using a MIDI Controller (no sounds) to play the Extra Voices on the Sk1. I have most of the basic stuff working like note on-off and program change. Problem I'm having is going beyond that. I'd like to control the Extra Voice volume via a knob on the VI61 using CC codes if possible. Also, can the Sk1 accept Mod Wheel and Bend information? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you

    At the end of the manual is the midi implementation/midi information chart that lets you know what midi messages can be read and therefore have to be sent. A quick look reveals you can control expression with cc codes, but it looks like you need sysex messages to control extra voice volume.
