switch layers with knobs

one feature i'm missing at resolume is to switch between the different layers with one 360°-knob of my midi-controller. i can just put every layer on different buttons, but as my buttons are occupied with videos it would be much more comfortable. maybe it's possible and i'm just too stupid to find it... if not: it would be a great idea for the next update!

You can try to change the knob properties with your controller editor. At the moment the knob most likely has a setting like "type control-change # / value 0-127". Try to set it to "value 0-1" which causes the button to send only two values: 0 and 1 (on and off).

The most powerful solution instead is to use Bome's Midi translator. You can then assign virtually unlimited commands to a single button which are then recalled by another button (by using it as a bank select switch). This way you can create "zillions" of button banks out of a 16 button array.

thanks for the tips! i think setting the value to 0-1 won't help because i want to switch between 4 layers with one knob (in grandvj this is possible, but resolume is still better :mrgreen: )
bome's midi translator sounds really nice but i don't know if i want to spend another 60 euro for this piece of software, maybe i'll find a free alternative...
