Akai LPD8 controller compatibility

Post by djliam » August 9th, 2014, 5:39 pm

Afternoon!
I've just bought an Akai LPD8 controller to attempt to use as a controller for use with freestyler, unfortunately the "buttons" are in fact velocity pads which generate a different value depending in how hard they are pressed. Is there a way to use these to control functions on the software? Or do I need a controller with buttons instead?
Or does anyone have any experience with this particular controller and know a way to make it generate just one value rather than a variable value?
Thanks

a lot of midi controllers have velocity sensitive buttons (the harder you press, the higher the value). In most cases you can install/download software for the controller that will let you set the value as 127 (the highest) regardless of how hard you press the button.

hi Members,

I can set up AKAI LPD8, but doesn't working well. I need start sequences and changes what is running with pads of AKAI LPD8. If I push pad, sequence is starting, after I start the other one, but after I cannot start again the firs one. I have to re-start Freestyler, and after is the same. Is there anyone who can help me solve this issue?
