  • MIDI CC Mappings vanishing after recording a new loop

    Hello All,

    I have posted this in general forum, so sorry for double posting but I am bit pressed as I have a live show coming up next
    week. So... I am having some problems with MIDI CC mapping. I am using Blackbox as a looper with my modular system,
    I have also connected Launchpad XL to the Blackbox to control volumes and filters of each pad
    I am able to map a fader or knob to the parameters and I can also launch loops/pads with MIDI notes assigned from XL and it works flawlessly.
    The problem begins when I clear a pad and record a new loop - than the mapping dissappears and I have to do it all over again which is a total
    dealbraker for me. Please tell me its not implemented this way... I want to keep the mappings even If the pad is empty.
    Is it possible?

    I would greatly appreciate any help

    Welcome. To address your question first, have you tried to CUT rather than CLR?

    Please do not multipost to this forum. It is not necessary. This forum can be a great place to interact with other users. However, if you need support - from us - please contact us directly as that will always yield a faster response.

      Hi, Sorry for the double post - I just realized that the first one was in General Topics, so I thought
      its gonna be faster in the Blackbox forum. WIll stick to one topic next time.
      As for Your - suggestion - I just tried it with the Cut option but unfortunately it behaves in the same

      PS. I have also sent a support request but I am not sure it was sent prorperly - had some issuies with my laptop.

        Same problem.
        Even if i just load another sample into a pad the CC is gone.
        i need to be able to control the level (and also filter,pitch,etc) of each pad via midi controller. but as soon as i change a sample in a pad, all midi mappings are gone.
        no, you dont have time to remap everything when playing live.
        This KILLS the BB as live performance device for me.

          Is your scenario also live looping? I’m just trying to understand the purpose of loading files into already-used pads WHILE performing. Thanks in advance.

        I play Live Techno Shows.
        For live performance I often need to change to other sounds while i still need to keep some playing. Not possible to change the preset while actively performing on it live.
        Also i would love to be able to use it as a kind of looper for some of my synths, but thats also not possible if it is not possible to control these loops/pads then.
