Hi,

Some more MIDI issues:

I just tried to map the record button in Cuelux to one of my hardware buttons, but it appears as the following (stolen from the tascam.xml) does not work anymore. The MIDI messages gets properly trasnmitted to Cuelux (verified by MIDI Monitor) but the indicator LED in Cuelux does not light up.

Code: [Select]
<action>
  <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Change">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 62</trigger>
    <tasks>
      <task type="Special" feature="Record" function ="Set"/>
    </tasks>
</action>

Then, I wanted to do the same for the Delete-Button in Cuelux, but it works only half-way, meaning that the Delete-Button does not work a a toggle switch (as in the software) but as a momentary switch. I use the following xml, also taken from the tascam mapping:

Code: [Select]
<action>
  <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Change">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 63</trigger>
  <tasks>
    <task type="Special" feature="Delete" function ="Control"/>
  </tasks>
</action>

BTW. Stack and Release both work perfect!

The last one is  cosmetic: when I press any button in Cuelux the button also looks pressed. Would be nice to have that feedback as well, when Cuelux is controlled by external MIDI hardware. I often found myself quite irritated when looking at my monitor pressing one of the buttons on my controller and nothing happens visually with the button in Cuelux ;-)

Thanks,

Ben

Hi,

OK, I have at least a workaround for the Delete-Button:

Code: [Select]
<action>
  <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Down">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 63</trigger>
  <tasks>
    <task type="Special" feature="Delete" function ="Toggle"/>
  </tasks>
</action>

But maybe a correction in Cuelux itself is still neccessary, as the other buttons like Stack, Release, Record behave different (in terms of MIDI-mapping) compared to my hot-fix above, but not sure about this...

Best,

Ben

In v1.02.6 I have brought the Delete button in line with Stack and the Release button.
