Mapping a hardware fader to MIDI CC

Post by cbxk1xg »

Hi!

I have a AKAI MPD226 and I want to map a fader to a CC and send the value to another software (with some other CCs as well).

I can receive all the values (0-127), but how do I re-send the input value as a CC to e.g. "Sound controller 1 (sound variation)".

And can I use other sub types? Because my CC is "ContinuousControllerNo20" and it is not in the sub types list. I would like to simply re-route my inputs in some, but not all cases.

Best regards,
Thomas

Das kann keiner lesen, solange es nicht freigegeben ist.
DIESE Info kann aber jeder Verfasser lesen und möglicherweise auch verstehen.

You cannot "remap" simply one cc into another".
You can make MK2K send a MIDI event of ANY kind when receiving ANY event.
The dropdown list may be not complete. As long as You know, what You are doing just type in the desired Output controller number in hex into data 1.
The data 2 value is the amount.
When not using the checkbox "react on 2nd value" ANY incoming MIDI message will trigger Your event with a fixed output value set as data 2.
To have all incoming cc events translated to another CC, You need to define 256 actions with "react on 2nd value" and set the output value 2 to the same as the input value 2.

There could be a switch to define this with a single action, but there is not. Maybe in future . MK2K is intentionally not made for things like this.

Too bad. Is the code of the app available for other developers like me?

No, sorry.
Your desired feature is possible to implement, but has to be done.
