Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

I want to be able to switch between different sets of pre-assigned destinations for my knobs.

I have an Akai MIDI controller that is just eight knobs and eight pads.

I want to make it so that by pushing the first pad, the knobs are assigned to eight parameters that I've previously chosen, but then, by pushing the second pad, the knobs are assigned to a different set of eight parameters. Even better, I'd like to be able to use a Launchpad to toggle different routings for the knobs.

How would I go about this? Do I need to resort to making a M4L patch?

Thank you.

I believe you are using the Akai LPD 8 ? (it has 8 knobs and 8 velocity sensitive pads)

The LPD8 has 3 different 'banks', they are CC, Program Change, and Note. Each of these have 4 different 'Programs'.
It will allow you to have the following setup:
CC - prog 1, 2, 3, 4. So that' 8 knobs & 8 pads x 4! (total of 64 controllers)
Note - prog 1, 2, 3, 4. Another 8 knobs & 8 pads x 4! (total of 64 controllers)
Program Change - prog 1, 2, 3, 4. Another 8 knobs & 8 pads x 4! (total of 64 controllers)

Using the Akai editor software you can change the setup of any of these pads and knobs. So all of them could be notes, or whatever combo you want. Just because the label says "program change" doesn't mean it has to stay that way.
This is a pretty powerful little controller.

You can use dummy clips to reuse a single controller in an instrument rack. e.g.
Your instrument rack contains 8 devices.
You assign Macro knob 1 and assign it to a knob on all 8 devices.
Using the key range, and dummy midi clips you can turn on and off devices in the instrument rack. This should achieve what you want to do.
