Hello!

I’m currently trying to map my Samson Conspiracy MIDI Controller for use with Adobe Premiere CS6. My main issue is using the knobs and sliders. I have tried to use the Capture method, however, when I do it only allows me to click on specific window panels only (no buttons or anything).

When I try to input the button values for the knob to use with, for example, the zoom in and out function, I am able to set one knob for each task but not one knob for both Zoom in and zoom out. I would like to be able to use one knob to turn right to zoom in and turn left to zoom out. Either I set one knob for zoom in and set the end value of pp, which works fine, but when I try to set up both I’m only allowed one click left or right for zoom in and out. I hope I am explaining this clearly!

Thank you!

Hi Enjovi,

Try the below. Holding down note 0 will allow you to reposition the knob of slider without sending keystrokes, This should allow you to have more room in the direction you want to go.

hi

Steve-Bome

I still haven’t figured it out. This is my project file. Please help me to modify it and change it to infinite rotation. Thank you very much.

Bome Midi Translator Pro needs to be running. It is translation software and does not alter you controller or your application. While running it translates input events into outgoing actions. You can minimize it on your desktop but it has to be running.

Hi,

Please see the below project file.

You will need to make the following changes to customize for your environment

  1. On opening you will need to assign My Input (which is an alias for a device on my system) to whichever input port you are using.
  2. On each translator, you need to may need to set the incoming channel and CC number.  I’m using Channel 9 CC 48. There are two translators, one for zoom in and one for zoom out, both controlled by the same knob (CC).
  3. I use a global variable (g1) to track last known position. This is how I tell what direction the knob was turned. If you are using global variable g1, you will need to change that to a global variable (in each translator) that you are not using.

Note, that I do not apply any scaling on the knob. If it is too sensitive, see our tutorial on scaling.  Bome will not have knowledge of the knobs original position upon opening. I suggest you center the knob and set the global variable to 64 when you initialize your project.

If you have a continuous controller  (encoder) that puts out one value turn right (IE 65)  and different value turn left (IE 63), then a global variable and centering will not be necessary.

 

Enjoy!

Steve

I got it, that worked perfectly! Thank you so much!

My pleasure!I usually find if one method doesn’t work, there can be other ways to solve the situation. Very
seldom does a workable solution evade.

I actually have another question that most likely has a super simple solution lol When I exit out of Bome, I lose all my presets for the buttons, how do I get them to stay encoded in my controller or do I always have to have Bome running?

Sorry, just saw this follow-on question. Bome MIDI Translator will not “remember” anything when you shut it down. I usually set global variables to some known state when starting the project up. If you save the project file, however, it will remember what the desired input states will need to be. The project file is saved but not the state of any knob, variable etc.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This can only be controlled to 127 and it stops. How can it be rotated indefinitely?
I used to control the playback and rewind of the movie.
Thank you

Hi, if you are using an absolute controller (with hard stops), then there is a way to push and hold a button when you get to the end, so that you can move the knob/slider in the opposite direction while not sending keystrokes. This would give you more room so that you can move the slider back a bit, release the button to re-enable keystrokes, then move again in the direction you want.

This technique is used in our video tutorial (absolute to relative encoder) but with MIDI out instead of keystrokes.

After reviewing the above tutorial, if you are still having problems, please open a new thread indicating the controller you are using, the incoming MIDI Channel and CC you are using.
