Faders, Knobs and main Control Knob not working. [SOLVED]
« on: May 27, 2020, 06:09:59 pm »
I recently bought a brand new Arturia Keylab Essential 49, and it was going good, till I watched a video by Arturia about setting up the instrument on YouTube that asked me to open the Midi Control Center (MCC).

Ever since then, whenever I open Analog Lab 4, all my faders control the pitch and the knobs do nothing. My main control knob also works as another pad sometimes and produces the selected sound when pressed.

Also, MCC sees my device as Essential 88 instead of the 49 key version I have connected.

What do I do? Is there some kind of way I can reset MCC or something?

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

In a DAW you need a setup both for keyboard and for DAW functions. How depends on your DAW and OS.
If you need further help, then please post screenshots of your settings. Then someone might be able to help.
Please search the forums for answers first. Questions like this have been asked and solved before.

EDIT: Also please tell, what you should do in MCC, and who said so, if that information is relevant? EDIT END.

There is a midi mapping option on the keyboard.  By pressing the "map select" button, then the Analog Lab pad, you should set the midi codes for Analog Lab (Don't forget to press the "Map Select" button again to turn it off and keep the "analog Lab" setting) - Also, the Midi codes are permanently mapped for the "Analog Lab" setting AND the "DAW" setting and cannot be changed even in MCC.

If you really need to reset the keyboard, disconnect the USB cable, press and hold the "Oct -" and "Oct +" buttons while plugging in the USB cable and you should see the keyboard lights do their thing.

Also, the MCC program displays the 88 key keylab essential logo (it means you should have the latest MCC update) - When I first got my 49 key controller, it displayed the 49 key logo and when I updated, it displayed the 61 key logo and the last update, it shows the 88 key logo - It's easier to display one photo than to display different pictures of the same controller.  Who knows why....

Last but not least, would be really helpful to read the manuals first.  I know, we're men and real men never read the directions.  We'd rather throw our things against the wall in frustration instead of having to read something - A genetic default in all males.

Oh yeah, this worked, I thought the MIDI mapping auto switched to Analog Lab when opening it. My bad! Thanks1

It was just the KeyLab Essential Tutorial Videos by Arturia on Youtube.
