Hi , long lurker first post here
I’ve just started mucking around on the mnm, and want to use my usb midi keyboard controller to control the mnm through Ableton.
I’m very new to controlling a hard synth/module from a DAW, and have made some headway (I think) by googling, but I’m still confused, very.
gear im using to attempt this setup:
M-Audio Oxygen 49 midi keyboard controller
Macbook Pro running Ableton
Mbox Mini audio interface
Trigger Finger Pro
I have an ‘m-audio trigger finger pro’ - my question is; can I use the trigger finger as the ‘interface’ for the mnm?
i.e use midi cables from mnm to trigger finger, and then from the trigger finger to my computer via USB, and then play the mnm in the DAW using my other usb midi keyboard controller?
Or should I simply use either, midi interface or a midi to usb cord to connect the mnm to the computer. I ask this because if i can use the trigger finger instead of an interface, i’ll only need cables and be able to save $
Thanks and hope this makes sense
