Mapping precise midi values to midi controller

I have a quick question about mapping certain precise midi values to a midi controller, i have not found this out for myself so i'm asking for help.


Let's say i map the grid of my beat repeat to a dial on my midi controller, it now lets me control the value's with this knob from 0-127. How can i set it up so that value goes from lets say 50-85 instead of the whole range of 0-127.
