MIDI learn file format

Hi Rudy,

Can you explain the format of the MIDI learn save file?

Example: 1, 32_05_025_P127_15_0_127

I can guess at a few fields, but would be good to hear it from you.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hey Andrew

The first digit is the number of the assigned CC#. The second part (digits with underscores) is used by the VL-Wizard to map the incoming CC# to the VL-parameter. Actually it is the parameter identifier containing the sysex address (decimal) + parametertype + table number+ min/max value.

I will publish a little video on how to map controllers from the IPAD Lemur app to the VL-Wizard.

Thanks Rudy. Can you publish a full list of the internal mappings? Then I can generate MIDI learn files to suit which parameters I want to control without having to map them manually.

Hope you're well!

EDIT: subscribed to thread, I didn't see your message until now.

Hi Rudy,

Actually I spoke too soon. In the list we have the first three numbers which identify the controller in VL-Wizard, but after that are other numbers, among them are the parameter range, and possibly something else?

Is it easy to generate these fields as well?

Thanks,
Andrew

Yes, the attached list are only the addresses but not yet the parameter names....I need to write a piece of code in order to walk-through each parameter in the editor and to produce the correct macro name...hope to do this this weekend....

Thanks. It would be fantastic to be able to tell VL-Wizard to read the file again via a MIDI message. Then I can write the file out from Max and ping the wizard to read the file, all while various MIDI CC modulators and MIDI note triggers are being sent.

OK, I see where you are heading towards...I will also see if there are no easier ways to have MAX interacting with the VL-Wiz....I like the idea...

Thanks Rudy. Any help making automation of VL-Wizard easier would be great.
