Thank for making this def file @Cinebulle , got my Hapax today and used it!

Only one thing that I had to ‘troubleshoot’ was that the level of my samples was really low and eventually I found out that there’s a rule in the def file “CC:23 DEFAULT=20” which I changed to a default value of 100.
Did you put that rule in on purpose? Because I can imagine that new users using this file will walk against the same ‘issue’ and it can be tricky thing to find out when your just getting to know the Hapax.

Thank you ! This was probably a mistake. That’s strange because it’s not on my file ! Perhaps after a lane for a specific song…

Looks like you’ve copied the automation section from squarp’s example def file for a the Nord Drum 3P. CC 23 does something different on the Digitakt than the ND3P.

What’s the purpose for sending this to the DT?

Good question. Actually, this will probably do not much at all. PC messages allow pattern selection on all Elektrons. But this PC section was copied from a different synth definition, I guess. To select pattern B01, you need to have this line in your PC section:

17 B01

Or use this section I’ve posted in the Octatrack definition topic for a list of all patterns:

Here’s a tweaked definition for the Digitakt based on OS 1.30B’s manual (here).

This is a poly definition because I tend to use the one shot & slice modes when sequencing. Werp & repitch are better for resampling & prepping samples for sequencing.

Unfortunately it appears the Hapax has a maximum of 64 automations per definition & the Digitakt has >64 cc commands available per track. I’ve commented out the excess rows so you can swap out other commands if you want to sequence the external mixer.

If there’s much interest I might do another version of this for drum lanes.
