Programming MIDI Trigger pads

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Quick question so I can continue my research.  I am new to music production.  I have sucessfully installed cakewalk, downloaded some VST's and are able to use them.  I just bought a M-Audio Axiom 25 Midi Keyboard Controller.  I am able to use the trigger pads to control some of the buttons on the VST but not all of them. 

 

Should I be looking in cakewalk to complete the midi-mapping or it this handled outside of this program?

You first need to know what MIDI messages the VST recognizes. These will differ from one VST to the next. Then you can program the M-Audio Axiom to transmit the recognized messages.

The M-Audio Axiom is highly configurable, which eliminates the need to use anything to translate MIDI messages on the fly.

I have a first generation M-Audio Axiom 25. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I am not aware of any.

I began writing a technical reference several years ago, but it's not finished and the project has languished.

Go ahead and ask as many questions as you like. The answers will help other Axiom users too.

I Eddie,

sorry to bump an old topic, but could you by any chance help me to get the transport controller of Cakewalk to interact with my Axion 25 (2nd Gen) ?

I want to use the play button on the Axiom to start the tracks in Cakewalk ...

Is there an "action" file to auto set up a axiom 61 with cakewalk     I refer this link showing a CB user installing an action file. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bbaAyr-4cI

There is an ACT preset for the axiom 61. Follow the instructions posted by Mark and post back if you experience any problems.
