I use the organelle with my akai25, and it acts as 2 keyboards. so instead of the samples loading as 1-24 twice, it is 1-48 (25 is used twice, as the last key on the midi controller and the first key on the organelle)… if I move the Akai down an octave, it seamlessly goes up the scale 4 octaves (Akai 1-25, organelle 25-48)… it took some messing around and a lot of trial and error, but it works! hope that helps…
I used the patch “Sampler 48” and deleted some stuff in PD that had to do with the aux button so it wouldn’t map it to the middle two octaves. I know literally nothing about PD or programming at all, but I just messed around (for a long f’ing time) until it did what I wanted it to do. I also programmed my midi controller to always be set an octave down so it goes up the 4 octaves with no tweaking once I load my patch. I hope I make sense. I don’t even know if you were asking me but there’s an answer anyway
Doesn’t aux button control a sequencer on the sampler style patches? I think you could have achieved a similar effect by using that patch as is and just pressing +1 octave on your midi controller and using that to control the higher registers. All for pd experimentation though!
well I wanted the patch to automatically be where I wanted it to be-- meaning when I started my patch I didn’t want to have to mess with the octaves. Because this is mainly for live use, I didn’t want to forget to change the octave. I believe in which ever patch I used, the aux button handled the octaves. So I just kind of deleted anything that said “AUX” in pd and somehow got it to work (for me)!
On this topic of midi controllers (possibly maybe specifically the apckey25) has anyone had success controlling the LEDs of the softkeys? I am hoping I can develop a drum machine around this controller. Would this utilize the ctrout object? Any tips appreciated!
