Title: Midi Mapping in Emulator by Smithson Martin
Post by: benholmes19 on September 09, 2012, 03:20:35 PM
Hi, we have been tearing our hair out for hours now!

We are using the midi XML file for the Midicon, and are trying to to make an improved interface for use by DJ's in a nightclub using Emulator (http://www.smithsonmartin.com/products/software/).

We have managed to get a fader to work, but the buttons seem to be evading us. We have been using MIDI-OX to read the output from Emulator, it appears to be outputting the right note, Cuelux is showing MIDI input....but nothing happens.

Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Hi,

Andrej here from SmithsonMartin.  I recently got asked if Emulator could map with the Cuelux software?  I am very pleasantly surprised that there already exists a post asking the same question.

I was successfully able to map faders 1-8, simply by guessing their Midi numbers.  That means this would totally work if we can get a list of channels and numbers for each object in the Generic Midi Map device.

So if anyone from Cuelux is reading this, please post the list.

Cheers,

Andrej

Hello Andrej,

Welcome to the forum, I've attached the list for the Generic MidiMap.
The document posted above explains the .XML format in case something special is needed.

Note: A common mistake mistake when controlling the buttons using the generic map is that you need to send a CC with value 127 to press it and another with value 0 to let it know you're no longer "pushing it down".
For example the payback buttons have a double function. Short press = Go forward  Long press = Release
