Can MiniLab MKII 25 receive and process CC messages?
« on: December 06, 2018, 01:54:05 pm »
Is MiniLab MKII 25 able to receive and process CC messages for controllers in absolute mode, so I can set the value of a controller by sending a MIDI CC message to MiniLab?

Is it possible to change the pad color by sending a CC message to MiniLab?

I figured out the Pad color change:
Send this sysex message to Arturia MiniLab mkII MIDI output port (I have used MIDI-OX)

 F0 00 20 6B 7F 42 02 00 10 7n cc F7

where:
  n is the pad number, 0 to F, corresponding to Pad1 to Pad16
  cc is the color:
    00 - black
    01 - red
    04 - green
    05 - yellow
    10 - blue
    11 - magenta
    14 - cyan
    7F - white

Still to figure out if the CC values can be set

To set the CC initial value send this SYSEX message:
  F0 00 20 6B 7F 42 02 00 00 cc vv F7
where:
  vv is the CC initial value
  cc is the controller index:
    k1 30
    k2 01
    k3 02
    k4 09
    k5 0B
    k6 0C
    k7 0D
    k8 0E
    k9 33
    k10 03
    k11 04
    k12 0A
    k13 05
    k14 06
    k15 07
    k16 08
    shift k1 32
    shift k9 35

Hi cvb,

thanks so much for your useful post!

I spent all the day trying to send sysex messages to my npr encoders but no hope! I read the page you suggest (Taming Arturia’s Beatstep: Sysex codes for programming via iPad) but that syntax doesn't work for me...

I'm c++ programmer and I made a sort of scanner that send many commands at time, hoping to find the right combination of hex values, but it doesn't work.

Do you have some tips about these kind of messages?

Thanks a lot,

Paolo
