Re: customization

I too was confused by this, not understanding that programming the expression pedal using Key modlines does not interfere with programming the Key. Thanks for explaining that here. I'm sure it's also in the manual but that thing can cause severe headaches and holes in walls! :D It would seem to me b...

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

You're right, it was good for me to figure it out myself! :D So I got it working but now I could use some help getting to work a little better. I want the slightest touch to activate the plugin but I want the sweep from 0-127 to require a little more pressure before it kicks in. Right now I'm turnin...

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

Yes, you gave me the problem but not the solution! :)

No, seriously, thanks for the help. Take care.

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

Found a solution. The programming for the Key I posted the photo of above has two Modlines. If I disable Modline 2 while MIDI mapping the Activate button (in Logic or Ableton) it recognizes CC 25. Good. If I disable Modline 1 while MIDI mapping the Sweep (pedal position in Logic, Frequency in Ableto...

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

Ok, in Ableton I can see the problem (or at least one of the problems). Only CC 30 is being recognized, which is the Pressure Live message for the sweep. When I attempt to map the Foot On to the Device Activator, it sees it as CC 30, not CC 25. How do I differentiate the two messages?

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

I also tried to the same concept in Ableton Live, to activate and sweep an Auto Filter. Not working as intended. So it's safe to say the problem is in how I've programmed the SoftStep as opposed to a DAW thing. That said, I'm not sure how to tell the DAW that one press is to activate the plugin and ...

Re: 1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

Thanks for the response. I kinda get what you're saying but don't know how to translate that into the solution I need. Yes, I used Logic's MIDI Learn function. Here's what I have setup, which results in what I described in my first post:

1 Key to activate and control Whammy Pedal

I'm having a hard time getting my Softstep to turn on and rock the pedal back and forth on a Wham pedal in Logic Pro X. I want to do this with one Softstep key. Currently I have pad 5 setup with 2 messages: a Foot On and a Pressure Live. I don't know if my problem is with the Logic MIDI mapping opti...
