Button sends MIDI CC on release?

I've about got my Code 61 setup with the Komplete Kontrol plugin, only problem is the buttons. Oddly enough, when I use them to change presets, it works fine, but when I try to change pages in the plugin, it goes to the next page when I press the button down, then goes to the next page again when I release the button. I have it set to CC Absolute, with 127 on press and 0 on release hoping that would fix it, but no dice. Not sure how to make this work properly.

  • Hey tkurgpold,

    Thanks for posting!

    I think it is important to note that all MIDI CC controls send MIDI information when released, this is how the computer knows to stop producing sound when you are releasing a key. Every MIDI CC produces an On/Off signal.

    The Preset Select buttons actually send MIDI Program Change (PC) data, not CC. When using General MIDI, the program change number will be assosciated with a particular patch, and latch to that value until the button is pressed again. I would recommend using the buttons to send MIDI PC data and configure the program changes in your software.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
