127 midi note input

  • well that is terrible.


    can we enable another input midi port and then enable another 127 notes in please? this is a big limitation.


    how about triggering page 2 cues ??


    i can add toggle pg 1 and 2.. note in triggers same exec but different cues...this doubles my cues without using more notes.
    just cant trigger same cue on both pages. hmm


    just tryn to map this apc20 as default as possible with full functions

  • I'm working on using BOME to expand the functionality.


    If you map everything in the 127 midi notes as a basic funtion, then use BOME to map different pages to send multiple notes, you may be able to expand the overall power of the APC20>BOME>dot2. These are "pages" in BOME, not in dot2.



    Simple Example:
    Assume you're using APC20's Track Selections to change "pages" within your BOME translator, which may just be setting a variable G = 1 or 2 or 3, etc


    If G=1, then set things as basic function:
    Clip Launch 1-8 are midi notes 1-8 change everything selected to Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Pink
    Clip Launch 9-12 are midi notes 9-12 are positions, High, Low, Mid, X, XX, Room, etc
    Clip Launch 13-24 are midi notes 13-24 are selection groups 1, 2, 3, etc


    To make group 1 move high and change red, in BOME page 1, you'd have to push C13, C9, C1.


    But if Track Selection 2 is selected, set G=2 within BOME and have the following:
    When G=2 have Clip 1 output notes 1, 9, 13, which would do it all in one button.


    This idea doesn't exactly give you more functionality, but may be able to give you more capability or a macro-kind of function.


    I haven't tried this, but thinking on it.


    Process might be something like this for Clip Launch 1, I haven't worked through syntax yet.
    Clip Selection 1:
    If G=1
    <Midi note 1 out>


    If G=2
    <Mid note 13 Midi note 9 Midi note 1 out>


    If G=3
    <other set of midi notes>


    Track Selection 1 translator rule:
    set G=1


    Track Selection 2 translator rule:
    set G=2


    etc.



    Just a thought.


    Also, I'm not sure if there is anything in dot2 that is "terrible". You might chose better words when you have such a supportive group of guys like Michael, Lars, etc. responding to your questions daily.

  • Another idea that TVTM_Brian had was that maybe as you map the midi to an executor, you can set the "page" inside of the dot2 midi mapping to "current" instead of specifying. Then, if you change the dot2 page, maybe the midi note calls a different executor. I haven't tried this either.


    Sorry to be so theoretical and not definitive in my posts. Hopefully these ideas inspire thought/progress. I have to find time to try everything that is in my head. dot2 is a hobby for me, so I don't always get to my ideas as quickly as I'd hope.

    yes thats exactly what i have done but i use bomes w another program... to enable more flexibility... esp when it come to routing the midi feedback from different pages/programs


    and again as i always,,,, i say the support here is great and thats why im here.

  • @btodog i havent had to use the variables in bomes.. i initate the program like this...


    on note xx"pg1" any value .. note out value 10
    on note xx"pg2" any value -- note out value 20
    on note xx"pg3" any value -- note out value 30 etc.. 8 pages etc



    then when it cycles back thru with this value it selects the function of the pads..


    on note in value 10 active by name "bw1 exec"
    on note in value 20 activate by name "bw2 exec"
    on note in value 30 activate by name "quickshow" laser software cues
    on note in value 40 acitvate by name "resolume" video software

  • My software maps MIDI to Art-Net. As i know supports dot2 1.3 512 dmx input channels. in this case you get around that 127 limit.


    Here is a video about my software:


    Also benefit: you can remote the console over network.
    use cases:
    dj should do the lights or at the bar you need to adjust the room light.


    You can use up to 14 midi events (two midi controllers) in the free version. The paid version is limited to 512 (1 universe) over as many midi controllers as you can connect.

  • You can use Midimonster!

    to translate anything to the MAweb backend.


    The MAweb Backend can send Parameters (for example from mdiid devices to any playback fader/Button on your Console(Dot2 or GMA2)

    If you want to connect hardware to your console and need additional signal translation or similar I can help you!
