I use Bome’s MIDI translator at work and when programming my XTouch and BCR2000 to work with Adobe Software the other day, thought ‘wouldn’t it be nice if there was a visual component to Bome’s? I have an excel spreadsheet for each template (Premiere, After Effects, etc) that correlates the physical controller buttons and knows with each function before plugging both into Bomes, but there has to be a more elegant way to do this.
At the very least, would anybody be able to recommend a piece of spreadsheet software that represents cell data overtop of an image of the button location on the control surface? IE: Select template A and function A1 appears on button 1 on the control surface, selection template B and function B1 appears on button 1 on the control surface.
Thanks for your help. I just need an easier, less time consuming way to create button layout templates visually. A gaming program called Xpadder sort of does this – it allows users to overlay shapes over an image, and link each shape to a command (keyboard or XInput) and a native button function (IE: XBOX A button). I have included a sample image of the UX.
