I just received my Pyramid last week and I’ve been experimenting with it.
One thing I was excited about using it for, was assigning its encoders to control software instruments in Ableton. But I’ve run into a barrier. I searched the forum to see if this was a limitation of the Pyramid, but I don’t think I know what key words to use to search for this problem would be. So I’ve posted this here.
I figured out how to assign the knobs to a given software instrument. But then I found that the knobs seem to be fixed or stuck to the midi channel of the original track I assigned them to.
For instance an imaginary scenario…
On track 1 of the Pyramind, I am controlling a pad synth track in my DAW on midi channel 1. I have assigned knobs 1-4 to their various CCs to control the ADSR of the software synth’s envelope. This works great.
But then I was hoping that when I switched tracks on the Pyramid (say to track 2) that if it it was routed to a different midi channel (say channel 2), the encoders could be assigned to new CC messages. So, in effect, I was hoping I could control different CCs on different active midi channels.
Is this possible? Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a limitation of midi/Pyramid?
Many thanks in advance!
