Now your MPD24 is ready , we can start the setup of mixvibes.



4-> Setup Mixvibes

Download the file include in this post , unzip , and copy file named Akai_MPD24.ini in MIDI folder of your mixvibes directory.

Go to Mixvibes MIDI options ,

Image

Check MIDI box,
Select Device : USB audio device
Select file AKAI_MPD24
check the Show message box
Quit options.
In the menu > Window > check the Info options

Now If all is ok , if you press the PAD1 (in Bank A mode) you must see in the info a line like this :

Image

This line show you MIDI details , if you see it that work :good:

After MSG= you see the MIDI message receive by mixvibes .
After CMD= you see the mixvibes command set for the MIDI message in the file Akai_MPD24.ini


Details of my file :

In Bank A mode , you manage Mixvibes sampler pads in mode PLAYPAUSE.
In Bank B mode , you manage Mixvibes sampler pads in mode PAD .

I let you try for see the difference ;-) .

Tips : Disable velocity by pushing FULL LEVELS button of your MPD24 ,
In Bank B mode it's better (for me...).


FADERS Setup :

FADER1 = PITCH player 1
FADER2 = PITCH player 2
FADER3 = PITCH MV Sampler
FADER4 = VOLUME player 1
FADER5 = VOLUME player 2
FADER6 = VOLUME MV Sampler


Knobs setup :

K7 = Volume Effect 1 player 1
K5 = Volume Effect 2 player 1
K3 = Volume Effect 3 player 1
K1 = Volume Effect 4 player 1

K8 = Volume Effect 1 player 2
K6 = Volume Effect 2 player 2
K4 = Volume Effect 3 player 2
K2 = Volume Effet 4 lecteur 2


And for all last button , they use a MIDI protocol named MMC (MIDI Machine Control) not managed for the moment. (MV is not alone same problem for different sound software like Ableton , Fruity loops ,...)


If you want other function edit the ini file and do it , and share it after ;-)

You can found here a list of all Mixvibes command with sample of keyboard shortcut
(sorry in french but easy to understand or test )
