if you could kindly move all the controls (2?) to a single page, save that page and then upload it here I could figure it out more easily. Or just send it via email (email page) to support [at] and reference this ticket (qa5528).

Saw the mail come in, going to tend to some other user issues -- uploads! -- and then circle back shortly. Thanks!
Thanks. I am working through this based on your answer.
Very cool, thanks!

The issue is that the supercontrol "START LVL" needs to be a of a MIDI message type that supports more than 128 values. Easiest thing to do is set it to NRPN (0-16K). You could use sysex, but then you'd need to add a V in the sysex string and THEN set the number of bytes to 2.

Diagnostic Layout - "I cannot seem to get the thing zero' out on mididesigner and iPad at the same time. I need these to control envelopes on my M1 Korg. Thx for your attention. FWIW I am trying to get a reset button working, too to reset envelopes to zero but you can ignore"
