How to create and use templates for KNOBS in Studio One 5?
With great hopes I bought the Komplete Kontrol M32, thinking it would be an easy mapping process to Studio One 5. Now, I realize it is a bit more work than I hoped it would be. Doing the work itself, measured in time, is not a big deal. However, I can not get the result I am looking for.
What I want: Templates for different VSTs in Studio One. For example, MaiTai, Presence, Mojito. But also for third party VSTs like, for example, Surge XT, Helm, ... I hoped to get "soft takeover" feature with different templates for the knobs
What I did: I plugged in Komplete Kontrol M32 into my computer. I started up Native Access, I entered my S/N, I made sure M32 has newest firmware. I opened Komplete Kontrol program. Having M32 plugged in, I clicked on the MIDI sign in the top right corner to start creating templates.
I created a "MaiTai", "Presence", "Mojito", and "Surge" template. Every template has 4 pages. I only use about 2 pages per instrument. I named all the knobs according to the parameter in the VST.
Template 1, in my case MaiTai, started with CC14. So, I went along and used the first 16 CC "ports" following after CC14.
On the above picture, you can see that the "Page 2" is selected.
Going into Studio One now, I opened "MaiTai", I pressed on the M32 "shift" & "Plug-in MIDI". The little display shows "a.MaiTai MIDI Mode". I mapped all the knobs to my desired functions. Everything seems to work great.
Now, I went on into the next instrument, in my case "Surge", with the following setting in Komplete Kontrol: Page 1 started with CC 30 - CC 37, Page 2 CC 38 - CC 45.
However, these CC "Ports" are not recognized in Studio One.
If I click MIDI learn in Studio One for the Global settings, I noticed, that I can only assign the first 16 knobs. The other 16 knobs of the total of 32 are somehow not assignable.
I have multiple questions:
- How can I use all 127 MIDI "ports" in Studio One? Is this even possible?
- If I can use all 127 MIDI "ports" I should be able to assign all of them to the 4 pages for each different template, correct?
- How can I activate the last 16 knobs in the "MIDI learn" function in Studio One?
I know, the questions are not only Native Instrument related, but mainly Studio One. I would go to a different forum, however, I haven't found any useful information on Studio One forums.
Thank you in advance for your help!
