Start up on a custom template
« on: October 23, 2017, 03:23:59 am »
Hi,

I appreciate the flexibility of the MiniLab in making custom templates to map the knobs and pads to MIDI controllers, but I want the MiniLab to start up on a particular custom template (or even just the last template used) and it seems there is no way to do that. It always starts up on template 1 which is not editable. This seems like a major oversight to me.  :( The last thing I need is another step to remember to do while setting up my already complex rig for a performance.

Since the MiniLab II definitely has non-volitle memory to save the templates, I see no engineering reason why it could not remember what template it was using when last shut down, or a user setting as to which template to always use at boot.

If that's not possible in the current firmware, is there at least a way to send it a MIDI message so I can have my Max patch set the MiniLab it to a particular custom template at launch? I've tried program change messages, but to no avail.

Also, is there a way to control the LEDs in the pads via MIDI? This would be very handy too.

Thanks,
Arvid

Hello, any news on this? I registered an account just to post about this issue.

The first preset space should be allowed for editing, not all users want or care about using Analog Lab. Or the Minilab should stay in its last accessed preset state.

Needing to change presets every time you turn the keyboard on is very aggravating, and a workflow killer. The #1 thing for a computer musician is the ability to just push power and play, period. The less steps in the way of that the better.

Thanks
