Help --- Can't remap pads to different MIDI notes
« on: March 05, 2020, 09:37:14 pm »
All my attempts to remap pads' MIDI notes using the MIDI Control Center fail.

I am using BeatStep Pro with Logic Pro X and would like to create a custom Drum Map for one of the plugins I have. I created a new user project in MCC and modified pad note values. Then I loaded this project into BeatStep Pro (either by drag-n-drop or by the "Store To" button, it does not matter.) I monitor the MIDI events sent to a track using the "Script Editor", so I see all the relevant info on my screen when I hit the pad.

The problem is that the pad still sends the factory defined MIDI note, and not the one that I specified in MCC.

What am I doing wrong? Is there some setting that I should use to fix the problem?

Hi
If you are making a custom drum map  in the mcc the BSP is updated automatically  no need to drag to a project as that is for the control mapping and not the drums
you can only have 1 custom drum map and it starts at C1-36 which you can change to your own custom map this is stored in the mcc


hope this helps

 Thank you. I think I understand now.

It is confusing though that you can change the midi note value on a pad in MCC, but it does not seem to do anything at all in BSP.

Perhaps this should be disabled, or are there some interesting use cases for this?

The pad change does work but you have to save it in a template then send it too the BSP then those will work in control mode.

if you pick global midi for the pads you can change the control midi channel to match a track

i know this is an old thread but i believe it applies to what i am doing. please let me know if i need to create a new subject.
which channel is the "global midi channel"  and does that only work while bsp is in control mode? by that i mean assigning specific pads to specific channels while in drum mode. im having great difficulties using bsp with my Volca Drum. absolutely no help from Korg and i spent all day the other day with the people i bought the Volca Drum from and determined the problem lies within the bsp because i got it to work controlling it through my daw and even through the sq 1 even though that is not all that useful for drums. but i was able to hit all of the drum sounds with it while the drum was in the factory default "split channel" mode. again let me know if i should create a new subject thanks.
