I have a query that I am hoping someone can help me with. I have looked at many videos and the general help but I am getting a bit stuck.
I am trying to simplify an editing workflow/buttons for some long podcasts. Currently using keyboard shortcats for splice and markers etc. I had an idea that I may be able ot ues my Akai MPK mini (old one) and map the "pads" of which there are eight off, to do some basic functions for me.
such as, pad 1 = rewind. pad 2 = play. pad 3 = marker. pad 4 = cut. That sort of thing. I could then listen through and split whilst playing and press just a few buttons in front of me.
I have tried mapping keyboard to do global commands and the pads correlate to a note (starting at G#3) however that doesnt seem to work.
I had some luck mapping buttons using ACT via a generic controller but before I spent another 4 hours trying I thought I would come and ask if anyone has experience with this. some keyboard even have stop/play/record so how do people map those to do global functions?
Many thanks in advance
