Assign Akai Midi Key to Preset

Post by jzimmem » Tue Sep 17, 2019 2:58 am

So I have been reading how it is now possible to map a midi key to a preset in SBA, but I am losing my mind trying to figure out the actual steps to assign a key on my Akai MPK Mini to the preset. Do I choose a preset, then MIDI learn, then press a midi key? If so I can't get it to work.

Thanks
Mike

Make sure your controller sends to midi channel 14 which seems to be the default for SBA. Or change SBA to listen to another midi channel.

Thanks for the reply, I am able to use the learn midi to trigger dmx channels etc, but I don't know how to trigger a preset with a midi keyboard press.....anyone have a thought on this one?

Thanks

trigger a preset with a midi keyboard press
This is by default midi channel 16.
14: Perform panel
15: bank select
16: preset select
