Akai MPD26 as good controller for Guru?

Postby rubble » Wed Sep 01, 2010 10:55 pm

I want to buy an MPD26 to integrate with Guru in standalone mode (Kind of like a less integrated maschine)
I don't have any experience mapping midi controllers
I've looked through the Guru implimentation PDF and it looks like I should be able to control a lot of Gurus features/parameters over midi
The thing that confuses me is that lots of the parameter controllers are on midi channel 12 but the engines are on midi channels 1-8
So will I be able to:
Play, record, undo, commit, tweak various parameters, tune, FX etc and play the pads on an engine all from a well set-up MPD26 in a creative flow without having to swap between mpd programs all the time

yes, absolutely. you have Guru templates on the MPD anyway, and you can customise everything on the MPD so just make sure you assign the correct channel and number to the controller and away you go.
