MIDI Trigger nodes: can we select the MIDI channel?


#1

Am I missing something? I finally got myself a MIDI controller, and having fun playing with it. One issue I can’t seem to beat is this: The controller pads can be set to send out various MIDI messages, defaulting to note/velocity. Trouble is, I can’t get the MIDI trigger nodes to look at a specific channel only, as I can with the keyboard node. There’s always an associated note number, and If I hit that note on the keyboard it also trips the button. I can specify some “no man’s land” region of the keyboard and tell the pads to issue that note, but that’s an awkward fix. Could you add a setting for the trigger node to set a MIDI channel, defaulting to Omni? Same no doubt for the pitch bend.


#2

At this point the triggers, knobs and pitch bend are hardwired to omni and will receive messages on any channel. Hopefully you will be able to specify a channel in the next release. I map triggers to the MIDI notes from 0 - 20 and 109 - 127 since those are outside the 88 key range on a full size keyboard

Yep, that’s what I did. Thanks for the info. I’m glad it’s in the queue for next release.

Correction! I HOPE it’s in the queue!
