Yay for MIDI Controller Files!
I've got a few midi controllers (in my never ending search for controller perfection), so if there's something you want me to test or figure out with one or more of the following, don't hesitate to let me know.
Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 Mk2
Native Instruments Maschine Mk2
Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 Mk1
Native Instruments Traktopr Kontrol S2 Mk1
One thing worth mentioning to avoid surprises due to using partial device names:
Some controllers may show up as more than one USB device starting with the same character string. e.g.
On my Win10 system Komplete Kontrol S61 Mk2 shows up as
Komplete Kontrol - 1
Komplete Kontrol DAW - 1
KOMPLETE KONTROL EXT - 1
and the Behringer BCR2000 shows up as:
BCR2000 port 1
BCR2000 port 2
BCR2000 port 3
Thanks again for such an exciting addition to Unify!
Cubase 12 Pro, Win 10 Pro (x64), several different midi controllers
Would I be able to setup something with a Roland RD2000? It has 8 zones that I can turn on and off and would like to use those buttons for the layer enable/disable capability.
I had a quick look at the RD2000 manuals at https://www.roland.com/ca/support/by_product/rd-2000/owners_manuals/, and if you're referring to the eight "Tone buttons", it seems like this might be difficult.
The best thing would be to run Unify (stand-alone) with an instance of MIDI Monitor, and see what the RD2000 sends out when you hit those buttons.
OH, I meant 8 zone buttons. Go to label 7 on page 8 of the manual. There are 8 select buttons on top of the faders. :).
I'll check out the MIDI monitor! Thank you. But would that tell me what device name I should be using inside the controller file?
To get the MIDI device name, go to Unify's Settings view and click the Audio/MIDI Settings button. You don't have to use the full device name--its often easier just to use the first part--but whatever part you use must match exactly.
I'll give it a go! Cheers
