midi input on a midi-track where Monitor is set to "auto" or "off"

March 5, 2012 | 8:11 am

hi,

i’m making a MFL-device to control my hardware-synths, which has gone good till now. not only do i want to controll synth-parameters, i also want the MFL-device to update its parameter-values when i tunr knobs on my hardware-synth.
i’ve managed so far to control the MFL-knobs automaticly by the hardware-knobs, but only if the midi-track is set to Input… otherwise the MFL-device doesn’t recieve cc-messages from the hw-synth.

any way to bridge that problem?

You could use remote control (midi mapping) instead.

Or, if you are on Mac use Leigh Hunt’s externals to receive midi directly, regardless of the track settings.

the problem with midi mapping is that i’ll have to do lal the mappings manually each time i use the MFL-patch in a session, for each synth… iven that i want to be able to control all 127 parameters, it would take me some time.

thnx for the link! i’ll see how to implement it in my patch. in case of succes, i’ll post the device online
