Change CC number in Midi map list (when using an XY pad controller).


Is it possible to edit the CC number in the midi map list manually?

For example, click on a mapping then type it in.


I have an XY controller joystick and XY controller pad.
Both axis send a different CC number.

The problem is that it is very difficult to only trigger 1 axis when moving the joystick or pad. This means invariably when you try to use midi map, both the X and Y axis CC controls are mapped to the same device control.

The easiest solution would be that you can manually edit the CC number in the midi map list after you have mapped it.

Of course, I could temporarily disable one axis, but that interrupts my workflow greatly (loading the editor software for the controllers, transmitting).

    When in map mode, use 'undo' to go back through all sent CCs. You'll see the CC change in the mapping list.

    I'd really like to have a way to change the assigned MIDI CC number after it's been assigned by learning. I've built a MIDI controller that sends two CC values (pitch and roll) based on accelerometer values at the same time (e.g. consecutive MIDI messages). Live only remembers the last message sent in its MIDI mappings. If I could just edit the CC number, it would be very easy to make this work.

    Yes, I could rewrite the firmware for my controller to have a special mode that constrains it to sending CC values corresponding to one range of motion. I'd rather not.

    hey, just messing with the new HotHand xyz controller...assigning them in live is a pain because you cant edit ccs.

    whats the problem with just being able to manually edit cc numbers in the midi mappings page?

    would be handy ...Live is normally so good at supporting what we need to experiment, so please consider this.

    I agree that this is a very weird oversight. 

    I don't see why the Midi Mappings window does not support changing the channels / cc's.

    Hope this can be fixed in a future version.

    Manual editing of the assigned CC value is not possible.

    But a tip for the XY assigning itself:

    move your finger / the stick along the outer edge of the control area while pushing towards the edge, i.e when assigning the x-axis, push your finger to the top end and move it sideways. This should prevent you from "acidentally" sending the other axis' CC. Works very well on my Remote SL.

    Hmm... this seems like quite an oversight - I hope this can be rectified. In my case, I have been experimenting with some motion controllers (such as Leap) and they are notoriously innaccurate and very difficult to get a precise midi value when you are setting up your Midi map. Typing in values in Live (as you can do with the Midi controller software such as Geco) would seem a much needed option.

    Same here - I think that really is a crucial feature when working with MIDI...

    I'd also like to see this simple feature added in.
