MIDI refresh shortcut

Post by elgarf » Tue Oct 16, 2018 04:29

Hi,

I have Behringer X-TOUCH mini, which is great for it's endless encoders, but there is one problem:

It has buttons, that change "pages" - pressing on this buttons changes channels/notes on buttons & knobs, but Resolume don't report new values to controller after page was changed.

Is there way report to Resolume that page was changed?

You could create a Bomes patch that moves every value up one and then down one. If you do it over a 1ms you won’t see anything but resolume will update the midi out.

You mean buttons "A" and "B", its hardware fixed buttons that allow you, as you say, to "change page", not in Arena/Avenue, but your controllers pages that extend your controller functionality x2. It something like you have x2 single x-Touch in one box. So just map A page, and after map B page, and switch between them when you need to control mapped functions in Arena. Since your faders motorized you will get actual controller positions each time after changing page.

I wouldn't recommend this controller for VJ. Faders are too long, controller is so big, and knobs tension make me feel unpredictable state. As for me :)

I'm doing exactly what you say, but Arena doesn't update controller state when I changing pages, so I don't see new values before I rotate knob a bit or touch button.

X-TOUCH MINI don't have faders except master fader, but it have knobs, which report it's state with lights around it.

That's solution, but it will be better to have ability to do something like that from Resolume.
