Cross MIDI Output Mapping Utility

  

Cross MIDI Output Mapping Utility

Postby BennyB on 02 Jan 2013, 15:22

Many of you know, that I was working on a MIDI Output Mapping tool, to make output mapping easier.

It's in early phases, but here you go.

ONLY USERS WITH GOOGLE ACCAUNT CAN USE IT!!!

MixVibes Cross 2.x MIDI Output Script (Alpha 1.3.3)

When you open it, go to File/ Make a Copy... to copy it into your own Google Doc base, and after that you can use it!

Recommended for advanced users.

Da-FAQ Section :twisted: :
1. Can It open my mapping file?
No it can't!

2. What does this document do?
Basicly you input your MIDI data (alias, notes, channel. etc..) and it generates a code that you can use in your Mapping file.

3. How can I generate the code?
Click on the big GENERATE button on the right. If you can't see it, look at the black cells, and click the middle of them. On first try, it will ask you to use the script... bla-bla-bla, just OK everything. After this you'll be able to generate the code.

4. What does "Entry No." and "File Name" mean?
There is an Entry No. Culomn in the left. Just check the number of the last row you used in the document, and type that in. The File Name will be the name of the Google Doc that will be generated.

5. Where can I find that Google Doc, and what's inside?
The generated doc will be in you Google Drive document list in a few moments, with the File Name you inputed before. In the Doc there will be the code you'll need!

6. How do I use my generated code?
Open the Google Doc, with the code. Select all (Crtl+A), and then copy it (Crtl+C).
Once you've done it open your mapping file (make a copy of the mapping file you wnat to put this in). Open the file with Notepad, then look at this part in the file, and look for this, an basicly do as I say below.
Code: Select all
      </input-mappings>
      <output-mappings>
code goes here as you copied it from the Doc
      </output-mappings>
    </mappings>
  </controller>
</main>

If you already have stuff in the Output Mapping section, find the last one and follow this:
Code: Select all
      </input-mappings>
      <output-mappings>
.
.
.
     </mapping>
code goes here as you copied it from the Doc
      </output-mappings>
    </mappings>
  </controller>
</main>


Once you've done, save the file. Open Cross, import the mapping, and try it... make sure your controller is plugged in.


IMPORTANT NOTE:
FEEDBACK PLEASE :cool:

PM me, I'll give full support for this! Don't write to any MixVibes Staff member, about problem of this Document, they will be angry :D

HAVE FUN USING IT!!!

Here is a new tip that I put here for mapping MIDI text for DENON controller to display track and artist:
This will not be in the Utility in the meantime, so use it this way!

There's unfortunately no standard way of sending text over MIDI...


meaning, there's some code in Cross to send text using the Denon format :)

However, if you can handle them using Max, here are the kind of lines needed in the mappings file:

Code: Select all
<mapping>
  <control alias="fam(Player)[0x1].TrackArtist" value="miditext"/>
  <miditext kind="DENONS3700_1" channel="0x1"/>
</mapping>


There are 4 kinds available:
- "DENONS3700_1" (1st line of the Denon S3700/S3900)
- "DENONS3700_2" (2nd line of the Denon S3700/S3900)
- "DENONHC4500_1" (1st line of the Denon HC4500)
- "DENONHC4500_2" (2nd line of the Denon HC4500)
You can find the MIDI messages sent in the Denon docs.

Hope this helps a bit ;)
