  • MIDI out from sequences that does not effect/trigger pads?

    hey rad people - i'm relatively new to the BB and am struggling with an aspect of it.

    is there a way to have sequences only send MIDI out while not triggering the pads?

    say i have pads 1-15 occupied by samples taking up MIDI channels 1-15 (they are complex, multi-slice samples, and so far have each needed their own MIDI channel to work the way i want them to): (how) can i make a sequence in BB trigger a separate hardware device (in my case an akai mpx16) without it triggering the pads too?

    dont know if this is important too, but i am triggering the pads via a usb controller (arturia keystep). if i have a sequence running, even on just the 16th step (ie where there is no sample assigned to the 16th pad), the arturia stops triggering the pads...

    so, in sum, i want:

    - my arturia to trigger the BB pads

    - the BB sequencer to trigger an external sampler

    ...without the two effecting each other.

    thanks a lot for any help/advice!

    If you want only external midi you have to mute the pad in the mix section. You cannot use it for both independently, as far as i am aware.

      Hi weathercitizen

      Sequences are connected to Pads. However, you can populate all 16 sequences from the Keys interface (or external controller) from a single Pad and drive external gear from there. Each sequence can send to a unique MIDI channel if needed.
