This is a MIDI question but relates to how MIDIDesigner is working with my lighting system. The lighting system can receive MIDI commands. It uses pitch for dimmer channel and velocity for dimmer intensity.
The lighting system is set to ignore Note OFF messages.
A MIDIDesigner fader set to "Note ON/Note ON" will change the dimmer channel to the specified amount in the fader. No problem there.
What I see in using MIDI Monitor, though, is that when the fader hits zero, MIDIDesigner sends a Note OFF message, rather than a Note On value of zero, and since the lighting box ignores Note OFF messages, I can't set my dimmers to zero.
So is this something MIDIDesigner does automatically? In MIDI, aren't Note On and Note Off two distinct things, even though Note On at zero and Note Off are the functional equivalent?
Wow, I just re-read this and hope someone understands the questions. For various reasons I don't want to set the lighting system to receive Note Off messages.
