Akai MPK Mini and Geist.

Postby shugmonkey » Thu Dec 27, 2012 5:06 pm

Hi Guys,

I recently purchased Geist and would like to use it as stand alone now and then.

I have an akai MPK mini and have it as my main controller set-up in Geist's prefs.

The problem is it seems to be only active on the first channel. Doesn't work on the others.

Does anyone know how to get Geist and the Mini to work together correctly?

Thanks for your time.

You can probably do it through the "Program" button by setting the programs to different MIDI channels in the Editor (Maybe)
But the padKontrol works much better with Geist (you can set eqch scene to a MIDI channel, and use all 16 pads....)

mpkmini comes with an editor, you can set the mini channels there. Then with program change and program keys (far left on keyboard) you can recall 4 different programs (sets, scenes whatever to call them :)

Though I love padkontrol aswell, mpkmini is a nice small controller, you can even program pads to send cc-s.
