Midi implementation chart for HAPAX

I just got my DHL tracking info, and I’m pumped!

Is there a midi implementation chart for Hapax? The Pyramid has one but I didn’t find one in the Hapax manual.

Basically, I’d like to know if it’s possible to launch rows/sections via Midi? I like to jam live for a while — sometimes 1 minute sometimes 3-4 minutes — and move to the next section when I’m ready. But I’m playing live, so I’d like to use a foot pedal for this.


afaik, there’s no midi control.
You could send a feature request with details of your use-case

Another option would be the pedal input, but currently that’s limited to what play/record at the moment.

i also would love to see external notes triggering patterns …

Midi implementation charts aren’t only for MIDI IN, but also MIDI OUT, they enable one to know on a glance what the unit is capable of sending out or receiving.
I usually print charts of each unit I get on half a A4 page.
Granted, Hapax- and Pyramid-type sequencers can basically send almost any MIDI message, still, it’s useful to know what they can or cannot send to see if they can or cannot handle a particular gear (CC, PC, sysex, etc).


i sendet a feature request and they said it’s on the roadmap and will be implemented soon…


It would be nice if you could control step parameters using midi cc. I have a Roland FC 300 foot pedal thing that can send cc’s from the expression pedals. I would like to use it to adjust, say, note length or chord type while using both hands to do other stuff. Or use control voltage from a pedal like the Boss EV 30.

Not a big deal just thought I would mention.

@fredcat this is also of great interest to me. I’m 75% of the way to pulling the trigger on a Hapax, but would like to know if MIDI CC or some other MIDI message such as NPRN can be used to select sections of a song (called “scenes” in many software applications that keyboardists use to control their rigs). I would be happy to use a “next scene” and “previous scene” pair of messages, but would also very much like absolute control over position in the song (many products like the BeatBuddy support selecting scene X, for example).

It’s an absolute requirement for my workflow.

Is that the feature request you asked for? Were you told when to expect it to be added to the product?

this are the implementations of the pyramid sequencer, hope something like this comes to Hapax…

@fredcat thank you!

Pyramid does what I would expect in terms of a MIDI implementation.

The answer I got from Squarp support was that this is a roadmap item for Hapax, but that it’s not possible to commit to a date yet.

I would be very surprised if we wouldn’t see such a basic feature added to Hapax, especially as Pyramid has it.

sometimes i really miss my pyramid…

My research indicates the Pyramid is an absolutely awesome product, but that the Hapax has a better workflow. I hope that the gaps in features in the new product get addressed. My impression is that Squarp is quite committed to doing that.

Hi all! New Hapax user here :))

Any news on midi implementation coming to Hapax? I’d love to mute the 16 tracks via midi - since muting tracks on my Elektron gear doesn’t mute incoming midi notes, and since muting on Hapax needs a button-combo. Would be awesome if it came to be implemented, but I didn’t find it in the manual yet, or did I miss it?


Afaik , we have had no comment that this is planned ( or not) for hapax by squarp.

If it’s something you would like send a feature request via the contact form.


Maybe I interpreted it wrong, but I was going from this:

Edit: ah I thought they said this about the topic of this thread, but I see they said it in response to something else they wrote.

I’ve filled it in as feature request now (accessing Hapax mutes via a midi controller)
