Hello everyone, im looking to buy some midi controller for my setup.
So Im using dot2 node + onPC, and im looking to buy midi controll.ier to get some buttons for me. Looking for some advices, and or somthing like this is going to work with my current setup? LINK
Ive seen a lot of people use the Akai mini or APC series for Grandma2 controllers. The mini is pretty close to the layout of a dot2 console, just has execute buttons on top.
I use an Akai APC40 (original, NOT mk2) and love it!
Anywhere between $100-250 USD on eBay right now...
I also use APC, but you must also have the Midi Translator software, for mapping eg sliders. Have dot2 node DMX In? Now dot2 has DMX via Art-Net and it works great. Maybe there is a regular DMX console with a lot of buttons. Here you get 512 channels that you can assign. In midi only 127.
PS. the link does not working
You really need take care of what is your midi controller is sending. DOT2 does only accept midi notes. ofter CC-messages are send for fader by the midi controllers.
In this case you need a converter like BOMAC or BOME.
Here is a video how to use BOMAC. with DOT2.
