yes if cuelus do not see the file anymore you should have done something wrong, but to say what it's a bite difficult without the file...
First try to check all your open/close balises

If the XML file contains errors it will ignore it without warning.
It might help opening the XML in Firefox for example because it give's more details:

Code: [Select]
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: file:///C:/Users/Dennis/Desktop/behringer.xml
Line Number 368, Column 23:        <trigger type=”Midi”specifier=”Change”>Channel 0 – Message 11 – Index 25</trigger>

So it looks like you used the ” instead of the "' character.

Such a little detail ;) I found it, and after that 2 other errors, and fixed them. Now our new member Rio can enjoy his new midimap ;)

i'm not sure the "tempo restart" is a real key word for cuelus, i think it should be a "break".

No i mean the midi code to reset the BPM to 120. The API sais tempo restart, but i tried tempo reset too.
My customer loves to use the midimap finished this evening on a gig.

In Cuelux "Tempo Restart" is used to get the BMP back in sync incase it got shifted.
It doesn't reset the BMP value.

For CueluxPro there isn't a midi api available as it gets changed now and then.

Hello everybody,

i'm going to get an BCF2000 on Monday. I read this post and download the .syx file in this post (f.y.i, i have an mac.). Now i control cuelux with an Launchpad and an korg nanokontrol2. From Monday i will replace the korg by the bcf. I have changed the Nanokontrol, so he sent and receive the midi datas to channel 2. I changed it with the korg-kontroll-editor. that is necessary, because i've made a multiple midi-map (Launchpad + NanoKontrol2)

How can i change the channel in the BCF2000 ? must i changed the content in the .syx-File ?

Greets, Jens

I'll help you :D
In the zip file which you can download here: http://www.visualproductions.nl/forum/index.php?topic=2911.0
Is a SysEx file of page 2 (p2 or page 2 is behind the name)
There is also a tutorial of dumping SysEx to your BCF in it, but you just have to dump the P2 file to the first preset on your BCF.
Have fun!

Hy Nijst001,

No. It is only the configuration of your BCF. It changes the channel of all faders, knobs, ... To channel 2.
The thing what special is for cuelux pro is the midimap which is included. It gives you full control over the buttons, the same as the faders.

Hi,

has anyone got a mapping created which allows you to use the buttons as well? With the file at the start of the tutorial, I can only use the faders and bpm trigger - but the bpm trigger has to be pressed twice to get it to move, so tapping on a 100bpm track only shows me a value of 50bpms?

Also, is there anyway of selecting the blinder channel and joining it to a DMX Channel for my showtec Blinders - not DMXed, they will just run of a plug/dmx controller.

Any updates? Thanks in advance.

to solve your first problem you need to update the sysex file of the BCF.
You can transfert the sysex file you will findin the visual production folder to the bcf using midiOX.

Hi there! I'm new to cuelux. I wasted a lot of time to configure the bfc2000. But cmacrae and Klaus made my day! Thank you so much! I had the problem that the faders were not running smoothly. Good hint with the Global setup and encoder 7! Yeah!

BUT: I still have the problem that my flash Buttons just working as a toggle. Same to the Faders's Playback buttons. Where can I change it? On the BFC? On the XML file? On the sysex? Please give me a hint and the best would be an explanation how to do...

thanks in advance,

Cheers Mikko
