Reset Button for Knob Velocity

  • [RESOLVED] Reset Button for Knob Velocity


i’m a new user of midi translator pro. My goal is to program one button on my keyboard as a reset button, so that it resets the “velocity” value of the knob (the value that changes from min 0 to max 127 when turning the knob) back to 0.

This reset button should reset all knobs and all other toggle buttons from toggle on to toggle off.

My keyboard is the arturia keylab mkII 61.

The knobs are in absolute mode, and they are endless. This means i can turn them right or left as far as i want but their value never goes below 0 or above 127. The buttons are in Switch control mode and toggle. When they are toggled on their background led is on. When they are toggled off their led is off.

The reset button is in Program change mode without togglefunctionality.

So if i click on the reset button all knob values should be set to 0 and all switch control buttons should be set to toggled off inside the keyboard.

How can I accomplish this?

Many thanks for your help in advance

Hi Phil,

This may or may not be possible on your controller. Many absolute controllers have to be manually moved by the user and cannot be reset by MIDI signals, The same may also be true for switch states. I’d have to look at the manual to ascertain whether this is true for your MIDI controller.  Please check your manual to see if this changing value of your knobs and buttons is controllable via MIDI. If it is,  then point me to the manual link, and I can provide a few examples.

Most of the time absolute knobs or faders are not remotely controllable (unless motorized faders). LED colors for buttons are, but not always the actual button state.

So i searched the manual but i didn’t find anything regarding the keyboard being controlled by receiving midi signals. But this does’nt matter anymore, because i found in the manual that i can change the knob type from absolute to relative (even 3 different relative modes). So the thing i wanted to do is now accomplished. But thanks for your help anyway!

OK, glad you got it solved! Again if the MIDI controller accepts MIDI in
put and acts upon it, you can do this with Bome MT Pro . Just not all controllers support it.
