Thanks, Papernoise - always good and precise answers.
Yes afaik Faderfox is basically one guy doing everything.
Ah, I see. I thought that it might be something like that, but if it is only one guy - he is doing hell of a job!!
What do you not understand about copying? It's pretty clear from the
manual to me... but I have never tried to actually copy/paste something.
in edit mode try to push all the buttons that you want to have the same
assignment as the one your are editing, until you see an animated
pattern on the screen. This should apply the same settings on all
controls inside that group.
With a combination of spending more time with the little devilious box and the manual, I realised that I thought that when the display showed lines I thought it was already copied. The fact is that is that you need to hold it, it needs to show the lines (like a progressbar moving from left to right) and then return to showing the parameter - then it is copied. I confused that, because of how a lot of other user interfaces works.
A little more words, explained in two different ways or even an example would have helped a lot and I would have understood it faster.
I have actually also tried the copy/paste and it worked perfectly, in the same way as above, so knowing how to copy parameters to the other encoders, buttons or faders in the group, makes me able to copy/paste in the setupmenu too.
I have used the CPyb/PStb to move groups around.
You need to understand how the Faderfox works
first. There's Groups and there's Setups. Setups are your presets, you
get 16 setups, + 2 which are setup for Ableton live (17 and 18).
Once you pick a setup (let's say you have picked #1) you can edit it and save its configuration.
on controls like encoders and fader/buttons are organized in groups (8
groups in total). So for example you can set up different CCs for each
group. You need to select the setup/group before entering edit mode if I
remember that correctly. groups can be changed for everything or
independently for encoders and faders/buttons. If I remember that
correctly the faders and buttons are linked together.
Yeah, you kinda answered it there. I thought it was 8 whole pages you could select, but it is much better and actually encoders/encoderpushbuttons and faders/green buttons independently and that is even better than what I thought to begin with!
So I was basically switching the encoder group and couldn't understand why the green buttons didn't follow, but holding shift and pushing one of the green buttons solved everything!
The last thing was actually explained good enough in the manual, but I was probably too annoyed with the former problem, so I might have skipped that sentence.
So, everything solved! Perfect.
After I solve these two, I will LOVE to here about how other people have
it setup and maybe even sharing some good templates for some good
I am now open for that if people have really good ideas or comments about this. ATM I have only used it with OT and havn't even thought about (until this second) splitting it up and make it control multiple machines (AK, MnM or MD - or maybe something non-Elektron!) - how does that work for you guys?
Thanks a lot for the reply.
