Modulation wheel from MIDI
« on: September 06, 2019, 03:58:58 am »
When I use an external keyboard I get that the modulation wheel has no use.
 Most midi keyboards don't have aftertouch, usually preset made for the MicroFreak keyboard are designed with aftertouch in mind and not velocity: it would be nice if midi modulation wheel could be translated to MicroFreak aftertouch so we can keep the functionality of the presets while using a MIDI master keyboard.

Why not use a keyboard that lets you change the mod wheel CC#
Then you can control any of the 19 CC's on the Freak, or if you don't mind a computer being involved see this post
https://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=92674.0 just a little app to turn mod wheel into aftertouch  :)

Unfortunately, my keyboard doesn't allow me to reconfigure MIDI stuff, yet as "everything else" (like pitch wheel) just works modulation was the only "stopper", so I felt it was worth to have one single option that can solve the problem on the MicroFreak and make small / cheap controller keyboards usable without using an external host.

Yet that small midi utility does the trick, thanks again.

BTW  it's so good to have control over "pressure" without the capacitive aftertouch: sometimes is decent, sometimes my finger just don't want to connect and licking my finger all the time it's not very appealing.
