 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I have the Sparkfun VS1053 Breakout Board and it works with the demo code provided.

I have 2 questions:

1. How many banks does the VS1053 have ?

2. How do I select them?

I see this command to select Bank 0

talkMIDI(0xB0, 0, 0x78); //Bank select: drums

Two banks, as described in the Sparkfun example code:

 talkMIDI(0xB0, 0, 0x00); //Default bank GM1
 talkMIDI(0xB0, 0, 0x78); //Bank select drums

The sparkfun example also mentions a third bank that seems to be the same as the GM1 one:
 talkMIDI(0xB0, 0, 0x79); //Bank select Melodic
