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.
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).
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.
@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?
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.
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?
