this is a mind-blowing opportunity. i can’t believe i get to design my own controller and can finally ditch several pieces of gear with something comprehensive and future-proof. thanks yaeltex!
my current problem besides impatience to get my hands on this device i’m creating is how to best configure it, i’m a little overwhelmed by some of the choices i have to make before i pony up some big monay. but i want to pull the trigger asap.
i’m curious how others went through the process, what ideas they started with, what they took into consideration along the way, how the plethora of options changed how they designed or redesigned their performances.
here below is maybe pretty close to being my project and will sit beside my Push2 and MidiFighter Twister. for this companion controller i wanted quick and easy access to more than 8 real faders and also to all sends and all macros on all tracks, the number of tracks usually around 40 to 50. i don’t need pan, crossfade or transport functions. i play scenes in order in session view that contain clips of my pre-produced samples in half the tracks, and i play and record and loop live instruments in the other half.
i know i’ll need to really learn how to use the banks feature to navigate the set, and getting the feedback lights to always let me know where i am is very important, and i’m sure there’s some stuff i could utilize that i have’t even thought of yet. any ideas or feedback anyone has about anything including how to use buttons and pots for my purposes will be immensely appreciated.
