Hi there Folks,
Is there a manual anywhere for the Base? I'm sure there must be, but I can't find any link on the website, or any evidence of it through google. Now I've read through the controller editor wiki and it is helpful up to a point, but it doesn't address the functionallity that is specific to the unit. For example, I am trying to figure out:
How does the second midi channel on the base function (I can see it in my Daw, can I edit it? Is it a whole second controller map, or does it just send out the same messages as the primary controller)
The Buttons on the right hand side seem to have two zones. Can they send a command for each edge, or are they just one button with a 2 led option (and if so, why is that useful?)
Why do certain features just reset themselves? I set all the pads to aftertouch and changed their sensitivity to medium, then sent the settings to unit. I loaded Live, and I now have faster pad response, but the aftertouch still doesn't work and I am getting different behaviour off of different pads when using kontakt and fabfilter twin (which both have predefined midi cc assignments) leading me to believe that the changes to the aftertouch setting have not worked. Sure enough, loading the editor again confirms that the pads are all still set to individual cc numbers...
More confusingly, I set button 4 to act as the scene toggle key (figuring that I'd rather have access to the other 7 modes on the unit than a couple of page of blank ableton assignments). It now performs that function, but when I load the data from the unit into the controller editor it says that the button is not assigned to a special function. How would i now reset it if I wanted to turn it back into a basic cc button? Or do I just have to do a unit reset?
With all of these quesries, I can't work out if I'm coming up against a quirk or limitation of the unit or a bug in the editor without some kind of documentation to refer to, so come on all you lovely forum goers, share the goods. Where do I find the reference wiki or pdf manual for the base?
Thanks in advance,
