AFAICT, fluid~ (at least the version that's included in Purr Data)
understands the following messages:

note c n v
control c n v
prog c n
bend c v

(c = MIDI channel, n = note/control/program number, v = velocity/control
value; the pitch bend value is 14 bit signed IIRC)

AFAICT fluid~ doesn't support channel pressure, poly-touch or sysex right
now, although fluidsynth does support some of these (it can be tuned via
MTS, for instance). As for which controllers are supported, you can refer
to the chart at https://sourceforge.net/p/fluidsynth/wiki/FluidFeatures/.
(Not sure how complete and up-to-date that is, though. The chart doesn't
mention MTS octave-based tunings, even though I know for sure that it's
supported in some versions at least.)
