Steps, buttons and Midi Remote

That’s not the title from a 70s SciFi movie :slight_smile:

Is it possible with the Midi Remote to map a button on a controller WITH STEPS?

Example: if an EQ plugin has frequency selection by STEPS, for example 80 - 160 - 220, I would like to select the 3 options with a button on my controller, not with a circular knob

I use to do this with Novation Automap and it’s a very very good option

Anyone knows?

Thanks in advance for attention!

Want to do this with the assistant or by scripting?

Thanks for the reply

With the assistant :slight_smile: I am trying to stay AWAY from the script programming tunnel…

So your three buttons would send MIDI CC values something like 1, 64 and 127 (or whatever would trigger the three frequency values).
I don’t have any experience with the “assistant”, but you can certainly accomplish it with a script. I think you can do it with the Generic Remote as well.

I misread the OP and didn’t realize they’re asking for a single button to cycle different CC values.
I do not believe you can do this without a script unless you can control what the button is sending.

I totally understand :slight_smile:
I’m not sure about the assistant, I somehow think that you would first have to transform your message by using an external utility, to simulate the functionality of a knob by using your button.

Using scripting, you can bind a customVariable to the function and have the variable cycle its value every time the button is pressed. I don’t believe an external tool is necessary.

I have recently added a Korg Nano Kontrol2, and I am using it with all default CC mappings, but I have other controllers (Novation, Native Instruments or even synthesizers) on which I can program what the button send.

I wanted to use the Nano Kontrol to solve this : ) without studying more, but it seems that I have to experiment more with it (and install its drivers and software which have MANY MANY issues…)

though for me would be easier an app like that :slight_smile: I really dont know where to start for scripting programming, and I am afraid that I could like it and spend too much time on it ahahhaha

I was demoing an app some time ago, it was very interesting, I don remember the name, will post when I can

Do you gentlemen think that learning some scripting for midi remote would be easier than using an app to simulate midi messages?

Sure. My answer was based on that @av_music doesn’t want to get involved with script.

Before the arrival of the midi remote API, I was always using external apps. Note, however, that some times, these do also involve a learning curve but probably less demanding in some cases.
