MIDI xyz controller

Any suggestions for a pressure/velocity sensitive xy pad MIDI controller to be used inside of Logic to control synth and effect plugins?

Any options beyon QuNeo or Korg nanoPad?

Re: MIDI xyz controller

Korg KP3 Plus will do this, but that is probably more than you want to spend.

Re: MIDI xyz controller

Not really. But I figured this was more of an effect module than a MIDI controller. I thought about this one, though. Will it work to control VST based effect plugins inside the box in a dynamic manner? And how painful is the MIDI mapping going to be?

Re: MIDI xyz controller

Yea, you can use the XY pad as a MIDI controller. I'm not sure what it is like in practice, I sold mine before I tried it. But the KP3 plus doesn't load as a VST at all.

Re: MIDI xyz controller

I ordered the QuNeo and will let you know if it delivers.

I'd like a dedicated pad just for effect modules. Probably one of my dumber ideas, but we'll see...

I liked the reviews:

And you can use it to control Maschine:


I am thinking about controlling effect parameters with this. Should be fun...

Re: MIDI xyz controller

How about using your trackpad for now?

The other central control component of most laptops is the trackpad, and this too has music making potential. If you're a Mac user, LSD Programming's Track Master (available for 2.99 on the Mac App Store) is the software that helps you to realise this.

Track Master gives you both Notes and X/Y modes to work with. These are pretty self-explanatory, with the former enabling you to input musical notes (you can play with up to 11 fingers at a time, theoretically…) and the latter adding X/Y pad functionality.

If you're a PC user, try Livelab's free Touchpad 2 MIDI, which not only allows you to configure an X/Y pad, but also lets you turn your trackpad into a panel of buttons and sliders.

Re: MIDI xyz controller

QuNeo arrived yesterday and it's really working well. Using MIDI learn and the CoMA programming is a breeze. Its like 16 xyz pads and you can map it easily to multiple effect modules.

If you are using Maschine it also provides an avenue to have macro control while using the arpeggiator. That's really neat for controlling Abl3 in playing a 303.

Really nice little gadget. Given what it can do, it's really not that expensive, either.

Re: MIDI xyz controller

I use a Wacom Intuos, and jack it up using Osculator (for mac). It's made for painting, but is really awesome as a midi input.

You get mappable X and Y, as well as pen pressure. That's XYZ right there. But you also get pen tilt X+Y, so you're up to 5 dimensions.

There are also two buttons on the pen. You could use those for switching to different params when pressed.

Most models also have a separate input for touch, so you get separate X+Y parameter control if you switch from pen to finger.

Fully configured, it gives you control of up to three sets of five params at a time, plus two touch params. So 17 in total.
