  • MIDI Question - transport controls from external controller

    First of all - I'm a total MIDI and sequencing noob, but the Blackbox was too cool not to purchase and learn on...


    Anyway, I'm interested in getting my first MIDI controller for the BB and I'd like it to be able to trigger the transport controls (REC, STOP, PLAY).

    I didn't see the MIDI keys in the user guide for those controls. I was wondering if they exist, what they are and if this is possible.


    Looking into the Presonus Atom and the Novation Launchkey Mini FYI.


    Thanks in advance.

    I am able to trigger PLAY and STOP from an Arturia Beatstep via MIDI, both USB host MIDI and via the MIDI In TRS jack. It doesn't have REC, so not sure about that.

      I have a Presonus Atom and the transport controls don’t work on the BB.

        There is a MIDI play and stop command, but sadly no standard exists for the record button. We have creating some note mappings for each of these on our request list.

          Really hoping that CC assignment to mixer levels is on that list. :P

            So currently you can't use a midi fader controller to control the volume levels of each pad in the mix window, right?

              Just got a Beatstep Pro and having midi CC assignments for mixer levels and panning would be super useful considering how the BSP works in "controller" mode

                You can do this with some effort. Check out this thread:

                  Thanks Aaron! I don't think that would be possible using a different midi controller without its own software to map channels ecc. Also it would be even better to have the possibility to control the volume levels in the mix window.

                  I hope you will soon add a midi learn function for quick and easy setup!

                    I use Presonus Atom, REC, STOP & PLAY don't work with BB

                      I think play and stop only work when the controller is also sending midi clock.
