Note to CC on PC

Hello,
 
I am new to this software and want to use it to control Powermixer. I have a DJ control AIR+ and some buttons are under the Note function instead of the CC function. How can I map this?
 
For example 1 button is by the manual under G#2 and I want to map it to CC 20.
 
Thanks a lot

Hi Rik
There are 2 Midi messages to a Note, Note On and Note Off
Note On consists of three pieces of data  
1. 'Note On' message type with the Channel added to it
2. The Note number
3. The velocity - how fast you hit the key - usually how loud
Note Off is nearly the same...  
1. 'Note Off' message type with the Channel added to it
2. The Note number
3. The velocity - how fast you release the key  
 
To add to the confusion and possible trouble for you is, in the early Midi days very few keyboards used the Note Off velocity so many manufacturers used  Note ON with 0 (zero) as the velocity value to turn off the note. Yamaha typically did this.
 
CC is only one message, but also consists of three  pieces of data
1. 'CC' message type with the Channel added to it
2. The CC Type
3. The value  
 
What do I do with the extra message that happens when you release the button on the Air+ ??
 
Menu Options / Data Mapping...  
If you can, press the 'Clear' button
Press 'Insert'
In the new dialog...
"When Input Matches..."
Select the 'Channel', Event Type = 'Note On'
The Min and Max of the Note# should be the Note number that the Air+ button puts out.  
Using the same number for Min and Max means that only that only one Midi message is converted.
The Min and Max of the Velocity should be -1  
-1 means any value.
 
"Set Output To..."
Select the 'Channel' or 'Match Channel', Event Type = 'Ctrl'
The Min and Max of the Ctrl# should be both 20.
The Min and Max of the Value should be -1 .
Press 'OK'
 
Tick the 'Turn Map On Later' box next to the OK button.Click the OK button  
 
Menu View / Port Routings...
On the Port Routinng window drag the Midi socket pic where you Air+ is coming in on the left to the right Midi socket pic where your powermixer is connected.  
 
Now when you press the  Air+ button the Note On should be converted to CC 20 and sent to the Mixer.
 
If you want the CC20 = 0 to be sent when you release the Air+ button......
If the Air+ uses Note On with velocity = 0 for Note Off, and your already OK.
 
If the Air+ uses the Note Off message you will have to convert Note Off to CC20 value 0
Back to Menu Options / Data Mapping...  
 
Press 'Insert' to add a second line.
In the new dialog...
"When Input Matches..."
Select the 'Channel', Event Type = 'Note Off'
The Min and Max of the Note# should be the Note number that the Air+ button puts out.  
The Min and Max of the Velocity should be -1  
 
"Set Output To..."
Select the 'Channel' or 'Match Channel', Event Type = 'Ctrl'
The Min and Max of the Ctrl# should be both 20.
The Min and Max of the Value should be 0 .
Press 'OK'
Press 'OK'
 
 
If you DON'T want the CC20 = 0 when you release the Air+ button......
If the Air+ uses Note On with velocity = 0 create another line with
Input - Even Type = Note On : Note# = Air+ button : Max and Min Velocity =0  
Output - Event Type = 'Discard'
 
 
If the Air+ uses the Note Off message when you release the Air+ button, this will also be sent to the mixer, but it is likely it will be ignored.
If it isn't, you can add another line in the data mapping to remove the Note Off
Input - Even Type = Note Off: Note# = Air+ button : Max and Min Velocity =-1  
Output - Event Type = 'Discard'
 
 
 
All the best

Hey Royce,
 
Thanks for the fast respons and the good explanation.  
 
It finaly works!  
I used an internal Windows Midiport as an output so the program can see it.
 
Thanks for your time and efford.

Hi Rik
 
sorry, I didn't realise the Powermixer was software.  
Glad you sorted it out.
