Using banks with Trigger Finger midi controller...

Post by DL777 » Wed Oct 19, 2005 12:42 am

I found this feature a feature about "banks" the other day, and I really have no idea where to start. Do any of you use the trigger finger, and if so, how do I maximize my potential with thing by doing things other than assigning the pads/sliders, and changing the bank...basically i rotate between pad1 bank and pad2...pads on pad1 are scenes, then pad2 i have some drums routed (but not all pads bc the general midi is not a full octave etc)

Sorry I don't know too much about midi/controllers...thanks. Your knowldedge is really appreciated.

Check out the video on ableton of Kid Beyond, feel inspired, listen and watch carefully what he's doing, and saying. 1 great example of creative use of midi and live.
I have the trigger finger, use it triggering loops, effects, now getting into triggering multiple actions triggered by one key.
check the 'little tricks and tips' on this forum for great ideas.....use your imagination, think of how to do it, and you'll find it one way or the other!
