bcr2000: problem firing clips

Post by robleighton22 » Wed Aug 20, 2008 1:43 pm

hi again,

im beginning to make progress with my bcr2000. i at last setup cc's on every knob/button and hav almost made a worthy preset for live. except one majorish issue. i want to use buttons to launch clips.

button 1 is say set at cc# 60, toggle off, on parameter = 127, off = 0, ch 1

when i map the button to a clip and then come out of midi map mode, the clip is constantly re-launching without me even pressing any buttons. in fact the only way to stop the clip is to go back into midi map mode.

so then i change it to toggle on, still get the same issue, also if i change the on/off parameters, it still happens.

everything else seems thing.

i can toggle mutes, solo's, etc. and also select tracks and toggling on/off works fine for other functions other than launching clips. i.e i have toggle off for beat repeat, so i can hold it down like note repeat function on an mpc. pretty good.

any ideas what im doing wrong when mapping clips?

thanks

If it's not a simple mistake in the settings,a sticking button or the same cc used elsewhere then I would recommend midi ox to trouble shoot the fault.

what should the correct settings be?

mayb it should b assigned as a note, then note on/off, as opposed to cc? havnt got the net at home, so this is gonna b impossible to find out. plus this issue occurs on any button i use and only for firing clips (so far anyway), all over parameters seem okay.

No cc's are fine. Maybe check that you have selected toggle and not increment.

definitely toggle. and then for firing a clip should it b 'toggle off' in the toggle settings? melts my brain understanding when i should hav toggle off/on, i know its simple, but then so am i.

Try changing to toggle on and set the 1st val to 0 and the second to 127.

tried it, same problem. really odd.

ok so ive tried:

cc# 103, ch=1, toggle off, value 1=0 value2= 127
cc#=103, ch=1, toggle on, value 1=0 value 2 =127

the clip wont stop retriggering, unless i delete the parameter in midi map mode.

any ideas?

edit:

works now. my midi yoke seemed to b conflicting. when i turned it off, its works. how annoying. ah well, at least i can start mapping.
