  1. A number of people have had similar issues, take a look in this topic - in particular to Edward-88 's post of 24th September.
  2. I think it's more a matter of not having a choice, those controllers with buttons you can't use because they only send CCs. Enabling both CCs and notes would mean you could fire a given pb with either the note or CC with the equivalent value. You'd still only get the first 128 playbacks maximum. (From here I assume you have chosen to use as many midi controls as possible, references to 128 would, of course, be less if you only have a few controls on your chosen midi device.) Yes, we do. It still means reserving the first 128 playbacks, mostly doing nothing themselves, just redirec
  3. Thanks Edward. Glad to hear you do get time off, enjoy
  4. That ought be enough to shut all of us up on the midi front, what are the odds it could happen?
  5. One thing to remember is that even you have midi notes and/or CC assigned to playbacks you can still operate them through the desk so, while the number of controls you can use through midi is limited by the midi specification, which are actually controlled by midi depends on which notes/CCs you choose to send. I think! Mapping midi notes to macros would let you trigger any 127 (or 128) things. I presume "things" could be cues, playback, buttons or whatever you can put together a macro for (e.g. something silly like select group, apply position & beam pallettes and select colour with t
  6. Well, if there are no plans perhaps I could put some ideas out there Backwards compatibility. As we can see from this topic people have invested time and money in making the current facilities work for them. That said, maybe you could fiddle with the code around "first note" so that, while still being able to map note 0 to pb 1 you could map it or note 1 to any starting point. Could you borrow from the remote switches functionality and make midi notes work like a much bigger set of remotes? That would have a significant on the size of the setup screen so it might not fl
  7. I've kept the first 6 pages for midi control and moved my flexible control to pages 7 & 8 so I can use notes direct, can't say I've noticed velocity making any difference to fade times.
  8. Yep, bought a Swan FLX+wing case, made a dog box, re-arranged the foam quite a bit, added a handle on one end and wheels on the other. I described the tablet set up in some detail in the FLX topic "Tablette wifi ou par cable?". I'm sure there must be a better way to link to it but I don't know it.
  9. I expect it would, right now however I'm using a wired one with a mouse through a KVM because I also have a laptop running Capture. The KVM didn't seem to like the desk so I have another keyboard for that. Living room table, lock down lighting
  10. I have an FLX (with monitor port) but I've dumped my monitor in favour of a tablet. Being smaller is easier to carry to a gig and it works just as well. Android is fine, I've tried that. iPad is available but I've settled on a re-furbished Windows tablet with a docking station so I can use wired network (with or without a router) and I can run other software (like the fixture definition editor) without carrying a laptop. I can also use a mouse if I want, saves reaching over the desk to touch the screen.
  11. Sorry, teach me to go butting in. Best part of this forum is how you guys keep such a close eye on things so a post with no response in 10 hours seemed odd.
  12. Hi Adrian Welcome to the forum. U sually one of the Zero 88 people responds quite quickly to new posts so they must be busy today. I thought I'd respond in case you were getting lonely but I'm not the best person to answer your query. I haven't run a show "on the button" in ages and never on an FLX (I work in a music venue where it is all busking) but the FLX should be even easier to use with cue stacks so I'm sure you'll be fine. While you are waiting there are loads of resources under support on the Zero 88 website at https://zero88.com/support - these include the manual, YouT
  13. Yep, tried that, and transparent printer labels. Thought about trying sandpaper to give some grip and/or wiping the keys with meths before applying labels. Suppose you could cling film it and put labels on that. Do they make keyboard protectors (like you get for keyboards or tills in bars) for it?
  14. If you find anything better then please let me know.
