Re: how to setup microkontrol as natively supported controller?

I think this is because the midi is coming through the LC Xmu passthrough port which is not configured to be microkontrol specific... What happens if you specify the LC Xmu passthrough port as a microKONTROL under controllers? I don't think Live tries to use Native Korg mode, does it? Does Live jus...

Re: how to setup microkontrol as natively supported controller?

1. I havent been able to get the pads mapping to drum racks when using LC XMU... But you get the faders and device control What happens when you bypass just the pads (modifier + bypass CCs in LC Xmu)? Are the notes that get sent (MPC preset 1) not getting to the drum racks? Is the LC Xmu passthroug...

FWIW, on OS X at least, the port name confusion arises because the ports have different names when you are running via Korg's MIDI driver instead of the OS X built-in USB MIDI driver. Took me ages to figure that out for LC Xmu microKONTROL support...

OK ... so either: A - If Live is putting the MK into native mode, it will change or erase the text on the LCDs, and perhaps light/unlight the pads to indicate if a clip is firing or such? If so, there will be a conflict and you won't be able to use both at once. or B - If Live isn't putting the MK i...

Not having Live 7 here, I can't test this, but if Live wants the MK to be in native mode to do its thing, that will most likely conflict with LC Xmu's MK support. You'd need to bail out of native mode in LC Xmu (see the details in the "reference: controllers" section of the manual), then manually se...

See my signature for both a simple MC screen emulation and a full-blown MC emulator/manager for OS X. Not free however. Or maybe you already knew that.

Extrapolate 20, 30, 40, 50 years or so. Combine this with the Aibo robot-doggies, version 100.x, and some advances in AI. How long do you think it will be until it's difficult to tell the difference between "android sex-doll" and "real human"? And what will you think then? And will you accept the an...

Re: control surfaces and Live 6

I know I can use the Bcf in Mackie mode (Cubase) but it's good only for Live's mixer Wrong. See the Live documentation for the Mackie Control. Press track "select" to select the track. Press "devices". Press "page left"/"page right" to step through 8 devices at a time for selected track. Press v-po...

now, HOW MUCH BASS? 11 bass. Here in NZ bass are called hapuka or groper, and live in the sea. In most parts of the world it is considered very dangerous to add bass to controllers because of the water, but I read on a website you can do it in Madagascar because of the lemurs. If you give the lemur...

I'm testing HUI-to-MC emulation with LC Xmu, seems to be working nicely with the HUI, Baby HUI and CM Labs MotorMix. OS X only, mind, and not free. If you're on OS X, and the Faderport does HUI protocol, and you want to check it out using the LC Xmu demo, download the demo and email me for the drop-...

So the "device" button should be pressed (toggle I suppose?), then V-select (moment?) and the parameters are then adjusted by pressing the V-pot number? All MC buttons are momentary, including v-select, so you need a press and release for each button. Device parameters are adjusted by turning the v...

Agreed - that's what bugs me about touchscreens, there's no tactile change from one control to the next. You can't "feel" your way around the controller.

Re: select automapped instrument with controller?

(I'm able to select each channel using mackie controls, but not the instrument) Sure. Select the channel containing the instrument. Press "Device" on the MC. Press the "vselect" (v-pot push 1-8) corresponding to the device slot you want. The device parameters will be on the MC v-pots. Use page up/d...
