I am very new to midi mapping and I trying to get some guidance. I am trying to use an akai apc40 mkii with Rekordbox lighting. I have been able to map some buttons, but I am wanting to know if I can use a page button to let me use the faders for multiple devices? Regular position controls certain lights, then if I hit page > then it would control different devices? I also can’t figure out how to make the pads a certain color and flash when in use.
Set the incoming aliases “My Controller” to your physical controller and the alias “Application” to the target port (application or device). Here is how I have mine set.
If your fader sends a different CC or MIDI channel, change the incoming message on translator 0.2 (Preset 0 translator 2). The translator checks the value of global variable “ga” and changes the output CC number if it is 1.
Translator 0.0 Sets ga to a value of 1 when you press a button (You may need to change that to what your controller sends when pressing the button.
Translator 0.1 sets ga to a value of zero when you release a button. Again you may need to change that to what your controller sends when releasing the button.
The rules in translator 0.2 changes the outgoing cc number if ga=1.
Thanks for your help Steve. I see the rule “check is button is pressed”. I pressed the shift button, and I see it is note On on ch. 1 with note:58 (0x3A) and velocity:127 (0x7F). How do I put that into the rule?
You don’t need to change the rules, just set the incoming trigger for Translator 0.0 to be Note-On Note 58 on MIDI CH 1 any velocity (or 127) and make translator 0.1 to be Note-Off Note 48 on MIDI CH 1 any velocity.

Ok Steve, I have purchased the program, and I have changed your button presses to match my akai apc 40mkii. I am not seeing the midi commands in rekordbox, so I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. Does bome have to be open anytime I use rekordbox in order to translate these midi commands?
I was able to get a single fader to be recognized in rekord box but it shows up as B007 regardless of whether the button is pressed. Do you all offer zoom calls? I think this could be fixed easily if you saw what I was trying to do. My description of what is happening is not great.
