MIDI foot control working \o/

Post by dave763 »

I got a ADA MC-1 foot controller operating the override buttons. I used Midiox, LoopBe1, and Bomes midi translator.
I found this post (thankyou Hambone)
1. Download and install MIDI-OX (www.midiox.com)
2. Download and install LoopBe-1 (www.nerds.de)
3. In MIDI-OX, go to Options | MIDI Devices and select your external MIDI device as the input, and the LoopBe-1 interface as your output, then click OK.
3. Now go to Options | Data Mapping. This will open the Translation Map window. Make sure that the only checkbox selected is "Turn Map On (after OK)"
4. Click the "Insert" button and enter the following values, then click "OK":
Input Channel: Any
Input Event Type: ProgChng
Patch # Min and Max values: -1
Not Used Min and Max values: -1
Pass Original Values (clone): Checked
Output Channel: Match Input
Output Event Type: NoteOn
Note # Min and Max values: -1
Velocity Min and Max values: 127
Delay: 0ms
Use input value 2 (pull): not checked
Use input value 1 (pull): checked
5. Click the "Insert" button again and enter the following values, then click "OK":
Input Channel: Any
Input Event Type: ProgChng
Patch # Min and Max values: -1
Not Used Min and Max values: -1
Pass Original Values (clone): Not Checked
Output Channel: Match Input
Output Event Type: NoteOff
Note # Min and Max values: -1
Velocity Min and Max values: 0(This I have changed to -1)
Delay: 125ms
Use input value 2 (pull): not checked
Use input value 1 (pull): checked
6. Click OK in the Translation Map window.
7. In FreeStyler, go to Setup | FreeStyler Setup and click the External Control link, then click on MIDI Control
8. Make sure that the input is set to LoopBe Internal MIDI and output is set to No Output
9. Click "Start", then click "Edit".
10. Select the function that you want to control, then push the appropriate button on your foot controller. A number should fill in on the Note field. Repeat as necessary.
11. Remember to click "Save". You should be all set.

That did not work for me.The number did appear in FS setup external controls midi, but The button would not work. They worked fine with keyboard shortcuts. So I set up keyboard shortcuts in FS setup, rather than midi. Then used Bomes to change the midi to keystrokes.
Working nice solid control of the override buttons.
Works nice. Set the override buttons to Disable all other buttons by right clicking the buttons
