I'm using the Key Lab 49 drum pads to control Superior Drummer/Kontakt drum sets within Logic X.
With the pads set to "midi note" in the midi control center: the keylab is sending polypressure midi data to logic which causes problems for cymbals within superior drummer and kontakt.
For example, the crash cymbals using NY AVATAR in superior drummer does not always hit properly. More times than less, the cymbal will mute before ringing completely.
If I play the cymbal using a key it works or if I change the midi pad to note toggle it also works. However note toggle keeps the pad on and requires me to hit it again before I can get another hit out of it.
Is there a way to have the pads send proper midi data (such as the data sent during note toggle)?
If you look in logic X Midi Input , you see the pads inputting polyphonic data compared to the keys that show a note cymbal but are still velocity sensitive.
In native instruments mashine you have the option to fix this by:
- Select a pad, go to the tab "Assign", go to the tab "Press" and change "Type" from "Polypressure" to "Note. Change the Threshold values to "Off 0%" "On 100%".
