Changing the 'active' Track on an Octatrack from a MIDI controller


#21

The manual says (page 106):

Blockquote1. Set pedal 4 so it transmits MIDI note 69, an A note. This will move the focus of the active track to the previous track. If for example track 2 is active, pressing this pedal will make track 1 active.12. Set pedal 5 so it transmits MIDI note 68, a G# note. This will move the focus of the active track to the next track. If for example track 2 is active, pressing this pedal will make track 3 active.

This is erronous, it’s inverted: 68=> previous and 69=> next (FW1.30D) which makes sense on a footcontroller. I don’t see a bug but an error in the manual, that originates in the midi implementation chart where indeed it says 68=>up and 69=> down but these are visual references (T1=top, T2=one down)

1.24? :thinking:
I did try to install the A4 OS into the OT with great hope but alas twas still an OT, and didn’t even make any noise… :smile:

As far as 1.25H, I just have my OT and AR with me and AR pads don’t play high enough in chromatic mode. I’d have to do MIDI loopback, we’ll see…
