(apologies, I could be missing a simple feature here?)
Is it possible to add a midi channel selector 1 to 16 (+omni?) in the right click > Midi CC selection box?
It would be very useful!
I use an Arturia Beatstep, 16 knob, 16 pad controller. The 16 knobs output midi CC's, which are assignable (but with a default #cc layout). Pressing Channel + Pad 1 to 16 changes the Midi Channel the notes & #CC's transmitted on. So its easy to work with 16x16#CC's, channel 1 to 16. giving more controls. It works like paged controls, allowing me to have all similar controls mapped per page.
I also use an akai MPC that transmits Midi CC, but it it best left on Channel 1, When making complex patches, it would be great to be able to specify the midi channel when assigning a CC to a knob so i can easily assign CC's on one channel to one control surface, or one "page"/channel on the beatstep.
I have tried many ways to acheive this, I built a sub-patch to receive 16 CC's and set the midi channel on the subpatch, then output into the main patch, per midi channel, but then you lose the visual feedback on the knobs (they move when directly mapped via the gui) - and, they respond differently (on endless rotary encoders, under usual, right click - CC mapping, they work in pickup - they move from the current position, the way i have it with the sub patch they jump to the current/last value)
or - is there a better way to do this?
thanks for any suggestions and help.
(ps, i'm sorry if this isn't very clear, i'm finding it hard to explain)
