MPK Mini help please

hi, so i know a lot of people have these things. can one of you please tell me why the fuck the knobs flit between 0 and 127 when you touch them. how the fuck do i change the range so i can actually use the knobs?

THERE IS NOTHING I HATE MORE THAN MIDI FUCKING CONTROLLERS

How about getting a monome and switching to the OSC protocol?

I don't understand your problem quite well. What kind of range do you need? Is 0-127 too wide (with all the values in between)? If you're using Ableton, you can set the range of any given parameter so that it reacts to half the value being sent by the knobs.

Also try to modify the range of the knobs using the editor (don't know if this is possible).

Re: MPK Mini help please

i had this problem when i was at yours if you remember

i assign a knob to something in reason and when i go to turn it the value goes from the biggest to smallest very quickly....nothing in between

i tried to do it with the editor too but it doesnt seem to make a difference. stupid fucking things man they make you editors but in no way explain how they are supposed to work with the shit you're using

Re: MPK Mini help please

Are you turning the knobs at great speed? Does this behavior happen when using any scene? Remember you've got 4 of them and probably you have different settings for each one of them.

I suppose this problem doesn't happen when using other midi controllers?

Are all knobs set to toggle, or just one or two? If you can, turn off toggle mode.
No, I don't own one of these.

Re: MPK Mini help please

there isnt an option for that by the looks. the editor thing just doesnt seem to save stuff despite the masive button that says save

have you tried hitting "upload" once you've set the preset in the editor?

Re: MPK Mini help please

You have to upload the presets to the mpk mini (no DAW should be running in the background). Upload each scene. If you edit one scene then switch to the other ones and then save, you will only have uploaded ONE scene to the mpk mini. Stupid, I know.

thanks

and no, really, midi controller only ever seem to take hours of my time that i could be making music with the setup shit that really isnt that helpful (in a lot of cases i see people with presets that make shit take longer) and a LOT of times i've tried doing this after hours of hard work i have to do it again next time because it wont save

shit never runs smoothly even slightly for me. maschine is the exception but for obvious reasons.

You own a MAschine, don't you? Why don't you just stick to it and use the MPK mini to kill insects?
