Category and Preset knobs won't work in VST
« on: August 22, 2013, 08:14:02 pm »
I can't get my 49 Laboratory Category and Preset knobs working in Ableton Live VST. It works in standalone mode but not in the VST version. I have updated Laboratory and MCC. Made sure to turn off controller after closing MCC and even used the Store and Setup way and they are being stored but it still does not work. When I move the preset and category adjust it goes from 1-65 and skips all the numbers in betwee. Below is a quote of the solution I have attempted so far.

Please help if you can.

Thank you.

Having problems browsing through the LABORATORY library?

Use the following settings!

Name   Mode   CC Number
Category Adjust      Relative Control   
Category Select   Control   
Preset Adjust   Relative Control   
Preset Select   Control   

Store these settings and the problem should be solved.

Note: In standalone mode this is working fine, but most DAWs will have problems to translate this to the plugin! In this case I recommend using the following settings to move up and down the preset list.

Name   Function   Mode   CC Number
Category Select    Move Up   Control   
Preset Select   Move Down      Control   

BTW: You can then use the adjust encoders for other purposes and change the Mode to Control if needed.

There is a workaround using MidiPipe software and a Laboratory.mipi file. Works once you use that via. Is this still an issue that hasn't been addressed yet by Arturia?
