Hi @brad… Really like these ideas as I have an AKAI MPK261 which has 3 banks of 8 rotary and faders so would be MASSIVELY helpful to know what’s going on (BlueCat’s controller is just too small). Just a quick question as I’ve been testing this out and the only way I can get this working is via the Controller Bar i.e. not directly from my keyboard.
So I have a MIDI Source “Main Keyboard” Routing to “Output Port - Onscreen Keyboard”, a custom button assigned with Action: MIDI Controller with the Channel and MIDI CC I want.
Then in ‘Notes’ screen configured as described in your post above - this works fine. But should this also work by ignoring the steps to route the MIDI Source to the Onscreen Keyboard? i.e. directly from my AKAI? I’m guessing not but the reason I’m asking this would mean to achieve what I’d like to do and build a map of the AKAI controllers onscreen in Cantabile I’d need to create 48 custom buttons… so is there a limit to how many buttons we can create? There seems to be limited screen real-estate to try and achieve that so wondering if it’s possible to get the Show Notes $(cc()) to work directly from my hardware…
I hope I’ve made sense, probably scrambled my brain trying to get this working but lovely feature
