1.4 Message descriptions

Post by digitalelements » Thu Dec 01, 2005 7:13 pm

Hi Florian !! name is Chris

I absolutley love MT .... and I hope to see it come to OSX one day too!
Anyway ... I've downloaded the new 1.4 and discovered that the descriptions for certain MIDI CC messages seem to be off by one number
e.g. CC 115 shows as CC116 in MT .... I've cross checked this with a
controller and host app (drumKAT & Live 5.02)
no big deal but could be confusing to some ...

best regards,

Hi Chris,

thanks for the nice words!

ndeed, this may be confusing, but indeed the problem is different conventions: some programs display controllers in the range from 0..127 (the native format), and some map them to controllers 1..128, i.e. offsetting each by one so that the first controller has number one.

I choose to support the latter convention in MT, though you're right that it can and will support people who are used to the other convention. I should add an option to do the offset or not.

Hey Florian,

Thanks for getting back!!

I understand the two conventions problem :)
Been fighting this one for a long time. Thank you Roland and Yamaha;)

Yes ... an option would be very cool at some point

Love your product and you will hear from me often ;)

Best Regards,
