The schematic (signed off by "R. Yannes") says it's an NEC FIP80B5R, which I can't find any information on. I know because I have one that it's got more than the 16 segments per character that bfm_bd1 shows, and that it can do bold (higher brightness) and underline per character, but that's about it.

ETA: fumble-fingered the part number smile

Yeah, knowing the display part number is useful from a font perspective, but says nothing about the MCU. For example, while practically everything in AWP land is set up to use the Rockwell chip or a clone therein, the manufacturers themselves can mate that to any 'starburst' display going cheap, so you get all sorts of different colours, thicknesses etc.

Well, in this case we know there's a 6500 driving it (see the schematic I linked), although we don't have a dump of that program. But since I have a working ESQ-1 I can already tell which control codes are "bold", "underline", "clear", and so on.

You can see a very good reproduction of what it looks like here.

That looks like quite a standard starburst to me, albeit in two rows. I'm guessing that 'underline' replaces the comma in 14segsc, which is perhaps the closest match that we currently have in artwork.

Not sure if that helps, though smile

We can do a _little_ better than that.

It's just that it's equally non-useful. ("/" indicates varying information sources)

Also the SD-1, SD-1/32, EPS, EPS-16, VFX, and VFX/SD. Ensoniq *really* liked that VFD display, which is good news for us if dumps of these other synths turn up smile

This is awesome. We need someone to compose a MESS demo tune for future testing! smile

Cool.

I suppose MESS could have MIDI I/O support in the future..it's probably not easy to implement it in a cross platform friendly way.

Also: Mapping analog joysticks/mouse to synth controls! I think there's a lot of fun to be had..or the other way.. using your MIDI controllers with other emulated hardware, like those drumsynths on the C64 and stuff.
