Is there any way to map the sliders of a Korg nanokontrol2 to the volume sliders for each bank/track? I can get the transport controls working just fine but can’t figure out how to do the sliders....
Thanks in advance
You have two options (Neither of which is good enough and we will need better support at some point)
1 You can double tap a fader in the mixer and assign it to a Macro, then MIDI control the Macro via focus actions.
2 You can double tap any sampler layers volume and MIDI control that, this is more of pre gain in to the mixer though.
1 Needs direct MIDI assign and feedback, for motor faders and LEDs.
2 Is not really the mix but pre gain, so if you have the free CPU you are better running a Saturator or Overdrive effect on a Sampler or Plugin output and then Macro assigning its output dial.
Obviously sixteen Macros is not enough for either of these methods either, sixteen mixer channels only in a mix and no Macro dials for anything else, so the real answer to your question is no, not right now.
Thanks 5pinlink .. only downside of the macros is the channel has to have focus in order to work.
Yeah te only reason i mentioned it is because some people use a single bank for the entire song to get mix macro control, not something i could personally do
If only we could expand out the pads into separate tracks on the timeline.
Ok, I have a Novation Launch Ctl xl showing up monday... So I pulled out an old controller to investigate mapping in BM3... Am I correct in understanding there is no way to control the mixer faders outside of focus actions / macros? Can we not just get midi learn for all the knobs and sliders? Using macros is as stated above not cutting it....
I have just got a launch control xl and am really disappointed with how bm3 handles midi learn. Macros I feel are for controlling minor parameters in synths not for the main mixer. I mapped the volume faders to macros and I can only control one if I have the track selected. I may well be missing something but that is not good enough.
It is enough of an issue that I may go back to AUM noodling and then just use bm3 for the final wave files. That would lead me to rethink whether I have the right daw altogether.
I am sure there is a good reason for this difficulty but from a user perspective it is infuriating. In AUM you simply go to the midi tab, learn it all and it works.
