VX49 Pads not sending the correct MIDI information

VX49 Pads not sending the correct midi information

VX49 pads not correctly working with FL studio or Reaper.
When I trigger a pad on the vx49, the keyboard says I'm triggering a C0 but Fl studio or Reaper says I'm triggering a C1 key. I cant figure out how to correct this.

  • Hello,

    Let's have you run a test to see if your controller is sending MIDI data properly.

    MIDI-OX - PC - http://www.midiox.com/

    In addition to the test below using MIDI-OX, you can also use Send SX (Windows). This program will let you know if and what MIDI information the controller is sending.

    **Before you run MIDI-OX connect the MIDI Controller and power on.

    1. Download and install MIDI-OX.
    2. Run the MIDI OX application.
    3. Select the Options menu and select MIDI Devices. Make sure to select MIDI inputs and MIDI Outputs for the MIDI controller, in this case, the USB Audio Device and click OK.
    4. Select the View menu and select Input Monitor. The field type, Data1, contains the CC information. Test the functions of your controller in the monitor.

    MIDI Monitor - Mac OS X - http://www.snoize.com/MIDIMonitor/

    MIDI Monitor is a free utility for Mac OS X which displays MIDI signals in a variety of formats. It can watch both incoming and outgoing MIDI streams and can filter them by message type and channel. Musicians will find it handy for tracking down confusing MIDI problems. Programmers can use it to test MIDI drivers and applications. MIDI Monitor is free to download and use.

    1. Download, and Install MIDI Monitor.
    2. Open MIDI Monitor.
    3. Click on the Sources tab to view MIDI devices. Confirm that your USB/MIDI device is listed.
    4. Once you confirm your MIDI device is connected and listed. Play any key(s) on your keyboard/controller to confirm each button or key is sending data to your computer. If your device is working you will see a message with data like below. The device is not sending data you may have a hardware issue.

    Try this out and let me know how it goes!

  • Im using 2 laptops, Samsung and Lenovo, with Intel i7 8th gen, both running on Windows 10 with all updates. My two DAW's are FL studio 11 and Reaper 5.

    I connected the VX49 using the midi out port using a HOSA midi-to-usb cable. While using the MIDI-OX software it is saying that the midi notes are correctly receiving the notes.
    But, on both laptops and both DAWs , the midi notes from the VX49 is receiving it an octave higher.

  • It sounds like the plugin(s) you're using may need to be re-mapped. What plugins are you using with your VX49?
