Supercontrol stays 0-127, subcontrol gets another range


MIDI Target Manufacturer(s): Roland
I solved it I think, I noticed I got the results when I kept the supercontrol (big knob video) at range 0-127 and changed the sub control to range 0-35. I have to check if this subcontrol sends the right midi data. If not the case I have a different solution ready: adding an extra knob for sending value 0-35 next to the supercontrol.

I do love automation though so less is more

Hey there, I haven't seen any of the videos but I'll explain this topic a bit (and maybe it's the right one):

A supercontrol's range determines which portion of the subcontrol's range is hit. The subcontrol's range is from its MIDI Min to its MIDI Max. The full range is 0 to MIDI-maximum (127 or 14383 or whatever) and you could do as little as two values if you the range is short enough (I think).

Does this help at all? If not, I'll watch all the vids and answer you correctly. Thanks!

Thanks, I understand how supercontrol affects subcontrols better now!
