How to go beyond 8 parameters in Instantmapping/MPK49

Post by Laura_Live » Sun Sep 26, 2010 5:48 am

Hi,

I cannot get my head around this. I want to map the rotary dials of my MPK 49 to Instant Mapping functions I choose from the VST in question.

However, this only works for the first 8 dials/functions.

I expected to be able to switch to Control Bank 2 to access 9-16 but no luck.

It must be possible, it seems to work for other AKAI devices: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDpSQP-7JNQ


PLEASE HELP
:( :( :(

hi,

are you using a custom user remote script?

if so, you need to edit the script to add bank up/down buttons, assuming there are a couple of spare buttons on your controller you can use for this. look in the script file for:

NextBankButton: -1
PrevBankButton: -1

and replace the -1 with the CC numbers that your two buttons are sending. this should let you bank up and down through the available instant mapping controls.
