Ok, I’ve started to make some progress with the bomebox. The port mapping and routing is a bit fiddly ATM since the port names of USB MIDI controllers is not the same in Midi Translator Pro (software) and the bomebox (hardware). But after some futzing around I’m reaching something resembling a usable rig!
The MPD218 handles any pad drumming needs, with the top four pads available for extra functionality. Currently I have mapped a relative program change up/down to the pads 15-16.
Qunexus handles any monophonic key playing duties, assigned to the autochannel so I can easily select the voice I want to play.
LaunchControl XL handles voice mixing (track volumes for all voices) with the green LED labeled knobs and the eight faders are mapped to the first 8 performance macro slots.
I still need to check if I can get a MIDI clock into the MPD218 somehow - was thinking via DIN, as that’s how I’ll be receiving clock sync most of the time - If I can get it to work, I’ll get a nice bonus in the form of quantized note repeat action with the AR, which the MPD218 can do but the Rytm on it’s own cannot (?)
I need to get everything to the same height though, the ergonomics are not ideal ATM
