Using C3 performer and trying to set up new racks similiar to what several of you have been describing. I ran into a curious behaviour when using CC6,7,8. I am using MIDI channel 4 (CC 1-16) to map 16 pads to enable various plugs in my racks. I am using MIDI channel 5 (CC 1-16) to map 16 knobs to control volume on each of those plugs. When I turned the knobs using 6,7,8 (for volume) the volume was changed but the 3 plugs were also enabled. I thought the bindings must be messed up, but they were not. All the other knobs and pads mentioned above work flawlessly.
In examining a MIDI CC chart there are obviously some that are preset to do particular things.
So I have 3 questions:
- Is it possible that the undesirable behaviour of CC 6,7,8 was due to preset behavior, and
- Does Cantabile have the ability to turn CCs with special preset behaviour into a plain old vanilla CC numbers?
- Is there somewhere that I can educate myself better in MIDI mapping best practices? Maybe some of you could enlighten us on your MIDI programming rules of thumb…
