I have a relatively complicated midi setup going on, in which I want to do something which is (I think) quite basic, but my translator is not working yet. I’m using two midi keyboards, connected to two different midi inputs (using a MioXM midi interface for extra ins and outs to my Bomebox). The keyboards are Yamaha CBX K1’s which, to change the midi channel, require two hands which is a problem while I’m performing. To make this possible with one hand I decided to use a usb numeric keypad, plugged into one of the usb ports on the MioXM. (I’m using the BomeBox usb port to connect the MioXM). For both keyboards I’m using midi channel 16 for the channel to be remapped to ch 1 - 16 with the keypad. Keyboard 1 is selected when I press the “/” key and keyboard 2 is selected when I press “*” on the keypad. I started with 16 translators for the keystrokes. For example:
[x] Translator 0.17: remap to ch 1 keystroke
Incoming: Physical Keys: Num / 1 Num Enter
and then a translator for note on and note off with:
[x] Translator 0.32: kb1 ch 16 remap note on
Incoming: Note On on ch. 16 with any note set ‘oo’ to note with any velocity and ‘qq’ to velocity, on port CBX
Outgoing: Note On on ch.‘pp’ with note:oo and velocity:qq, to ports D-110, STmini
D-110 and STmini are my synths and midi recorder.
I’m pretty sure I’m missing something obvious in this example. I was looking for a BMTP project as a reference that does this in the forums but couldnt yet find any. If there is one I would love to take a look.
Any help would be great. Thanks a lot!
