Can't get minilab mkII to work in Cakewalk
« on: September 06, 2021, 11:10:51 pm »
Greetings. I'm a guitarist of about 40 years, but I have been using Cakewalk DAW and Arturia minilab mkII for about 3 days. Is there a good tutorial that explains how to me on how to get, say, the SYNTH/Fascination preset to load and play?? I have tried the Cakewalk forums, YouTube, Google search, the Analog Lab Lite tutorial but I still can't figure it out. Any help appreciated. I can't get the physical hardware minilab keyboard to interface with analog lab lite like it shows in this YouTube video: https://youtu.be/bFoe9rDJnZ0

TIA.

edit:
guess i should explain my set up.

Running Arturia minilab mkII via the usb that came with it to my pc.
running latest cakewalk daw.
my minilab does play what i assume is the default sound which is a piano. the buttons all light up, i can shift from pad 1-8/9-16, oct - and oct +, all of the keys and knobs work fine....i just have no idea how to program it to a plug in and then into cakewalk daw.

can someone advise which manual to dl for the minilab mkII?? is it the analog manual or analog lab 5 or both or neither??

tia

The user manual is there : http://downloads.arturia.com/products/minilab-mkII/manual/MiniLabmkII_Manual_1_0_7_EN.pdf

To use it in your DAW, make sure Analog Lab is closed before launching your DAW so the USB-MIDI port is released.
Then, in your DAW, select the Minilabís USB-MIDI ports as MIDI input and output and use the usual workflow to route them to your plugins.
Analog Lab itself can be run as a plugin and you should appear as such.

Hope this helps.

Thank You Very Much. I am new to midi controllers and electronic instruments in general. Appreciate the help.
