    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    You'd have to program the '2' to work.  The original worked with the then-current version of MC as I had described at that time.  This is a very old thread and many things have changed since I started it.  I don't know if either model works with MC 6 or not.  The '2' may work with your version of MC but not "out of the box."

    Use the Korg editor you can get from their site.  I think you can download the scene data for the '1' from Korg, then load the data for scene 4 from the nanoKontrol '1' into the '2' with the editor software.  Whether it will work with MC, I can't tell you.  All I've ever used is the original nanoKontrol snd it worked when set on its scene 4.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    With MC 3 or 4 - whichever was current in 2009 when I started the thread - set for the Digi002 controller and the nanoKontrol set on scene 4, the faders and pan worked.  I didn't use it much with MC.  I bought it for my audio recording work and just tried it on MC once to see if it would work.  If you have trouble, I can probably make some time to check my nanoKontrol with MC 6 to see what happens.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    The place where the faders are at 0dB gain change is near the top.  If you watch the mixer as you move the faders, you'll see the gain value above the mixer channel.  Negative values are cutting volume, positive values are rasing volume from the original.  The original volume of the clip is 0dB.  The number in decibels (dB) is the change from the original level of the clip.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    Its really dificult to control the 1 and 2 channel at the same time. They are allways with some diference in dB. And i can never get them to 0 dB. Only 0.6 or something. Maybe if i found something that holds the knob of the faders to make them go up and down at the same time.

    I see what your saying. Near the top is the 0dB mark but thats not precise..and when we move the fader up or down it will update first for the dB value at where the fader was (near 0 dB) and then go to whatever your aiming for. creating a wave.. (volume goes down and then up) Dont know if im being clear.. Its hard to explain this in english.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    If you want to control two or more channels at once, group the faders in MC's mixer.  There are icons at the bottom of the channels you click to do this.  Then either fader you move will make each one in the group move at the same time.  They don't have to be at the same level, either.  One could be at 0dB and another at -6dB and when grouped they'll both move and keep the 6dB difference.

    If you want to set the gain to a certain level, type the number in the box.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    Hi all, 

     

    Great spot whoever did this back in 09. I've just managed to hack together a little program to control gain over HTTP which is very cool. This will save the space on the desk my Digi 002 was taking up!

    What I'm struggling to do is read the current values from the Avid in my software. My Digi 002 is able to track the values used as a gain controller, so it's clearly possible over MIDI.  By the looks of things from previous entries in this forum, some SYSEX handshaking might be required, but I'm really struggling to snoop at the Digi 002 communication when it's running on the Avid. 

    I know this thread is a bit ancient, but has anyone managed to get access to the values from the Avid by spoofing controller type?

     

    Best, 

     

    Steve

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of the pertinent photos and information from this thread have disappeared over time.  I'd be eternally grateful if anyone could help me with some SysEx data and how to use it to trick Avid into "listening" for a midi note from a Behringer BCF2000.

    I can't stand the idea of dropping $1200 on an Artist Mix when it's SO close to working if we only had the codes.

    Re: USB/MIDI control surface and MC

    I have the BCF2000 as well and have managed to get it to control gain and pan, but would be nice to get solo, mutes and maybe fader automation to work.
