Does anyone have a list of the preset MIDI assignments on the MPK249?

Does anyone have a list of the preset MIDI assignments on the MPK249? For example what MIDI CC# is each MPK control mapped to in the generic presets.

  • I've never seen such a list, but it's easy to see how controls are set, and even change things on the fly as you need it.

    Just tap edit and press/move the control you want to change. Use the cursor keys and data knob beside the LED screen to review or set it to do what you want it to do :)

    Once you're done, don't forget to save your preset or you'll lose it upon changing presets or powering down the MPK2. To save just tap preset, the right cursor key beside the LED screen, and dial in the location and name for your preset. Press the data knob in and it's saved.

    If you need to fiddle with controls and not have any MIDI events sent, hold down the preview button while you move it.

    Many of the presets are really just meant to be a 'starting point' to help people walk through some tutorials and see how it ties into their particular DAW. I can almost guarantee that you'll want to change things to suit your own system and workflow.

    The only preset that came with my MPK2 that I haven't radically reworked to fit my workstation needs was the MPC Essentials preset.

    If you'd like to see the MMA 'recommended' assignments for various controller numbers, see table 3 of this chart:
    http://midi.org/techspecs/midimessage...

    Several of these recommended CC numbers are pretty standard across the industry, in that most any plugin or hardware synth/keyboard is going to support them right out of the box.

    CC 1 (Mod wheel)
    CC 7 (Channel Volume)
    CC 10 (Pan)
    CC 11 (Expression Volume)
    CC 64 (Sustain Pedal)
    CC 91 (FX send...usually Reverb)
    CC 91 (FX send...usually Chorus)

    Beyond these basics, most plugins and devices these days are going to allow you to 'learn' or 'map' controllers however you wish. I usually try the MMA assigned controller numbers first, and if the software doesn't respond, it usually means you have to set up your own controller as you like. I.E. Click learn in the plugin with the mouse, move a control on the MPK2, and it starts responding in your software.

  • You're welcome.

    Sorry about a typo where I entered CC 91 twice.

    CC 91 is often supported for Reverb send. (GM2 and XG MIDI protocols)
    CC 93 is often supported for Chorus send. (GM2 and XG MIDI protocols)
