[Bug?]Minifreak V MIDI Learn not quite working

Running Minifreak V in Studio One 5.5 in Windows 10 x64. Trying to link the knobs from my my external controller (old Novation Launchkey) to the macro knobs of Minifreak V- “InControl” is off and the knob’s input is not being taken by S1’s Device Control Map-- my knobs are working fine with other VSTs. Anyone else having this issue? Thought I’d ask here before putting in a support ticket. TIA!

Hi @pebblestream and welcome to The Sound Explorers Forum.

Thanks for reporting this, i’ll list it as a potential bug at the moment, to see if anyone else is having this issue or knows of a ‘workaround’.

Hi Mat, thanks! I just realized I did not give enough details-- what happens is-- I empty the current MIDI CC mappings, select MIDI learn, then click on a macro strip icon to select it to be learned, and twist the knob on my controller-- now the weird thing is, Minifreak V detects me moving the knob and maps the control to the knob, however when I turn the knob, the value of the control it’s mapped to doesn’t change. Hope that helps clear things up a bit!

HI @pebblestream

I’ve not been able to check on my own machine today as i’ve just been too tied up, if you can hang on until tomorrow i’ll have a good look at it then, anyone else please feel free to chip in meanwhile…

Hi again Mat, thanks! No rush here, I’m still enjoying making patches even without the comfort of the real knobs, though they would definitely be nice-- and I realize it may take time to find the bug and fix it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Can confirm I’m seeing the same behavior here. It picks up the CC when learning but doesn’t actually respond to any.

I’m having a very similar problem. MIDI learn hasn’t worked for me since first installing it on MacOS last year; yes, it will map a physical knob to a paramter on the VST, but it will not change the MIDI data after exiting MIDI Learn.

My KS37 works fine with other plugins but not with MiniFreak V.

Controller: Keystep37
OS: MacOS 13.5.2
DAW: Ableton Suite 11.2

Same problem here, i was getting crazy. I was trying to midi map to change previous/next presets but it’s not working :frowning:
