Akai MPD32 general purpose MIDI receiver

module MPD32 Akai MidiMapper midi
Credits: This patch collects all MIDI Input from an Akai MPD32 and serves them in a convenient way.


This patch collects all MIDI Input from an Akai MPD32 and serves them in a convenient way.
I use to scroll down and use frameless Mode ([Ctrl]-[8]) to have a view on
current values (fitting 1080 screen lines)

  • The drum pads trigger regular Bangs as well as a sustaining signal ("hold" until Note Off)

and an ordinal of the last pressed Pad, together with four Bangs telling which Pad Bank is active.

  • The beat uses MPDs Clock. Hit the [PLAY] transport button on the device and [TAP TEMPO].
  • Choose one of 7 slices of the Beat Bangs to synchronize parameters of your Set from 1/16th up to 4/1.
  • All values are exported per Output Pin as well as per S (Value).

Currently i haven't installed the Vyzex Software to attach the MPD preset in the proprietary format. If you experience problems uploading the SysEx, let me know.

Have fun, any feedback welcome.

Hi, thanks blausand! I have weird behaviors with faders when switch to bank B and C (F5 to F8 do nothing). Even using preset 24...
Maybe I don't load the .syx in a right way? any solutions?

Xini: the old problem was the renderer on a second screen freezing when fullsize, under certain conditions which i can't remember now...

Xini: @joreg now i got hold of a projector and i tested, should be fine! :D @joreg

joreg: i'm not exactly sure what "old problem" you're talking about. have you tested if it still exists?

Xini: tx @joreg . Do you think it's better for me to install a 32bit version of vvvv, or is there another workaround for that old problem?
