  • Hi Christian,

    Thanks for posting!

    First thing to do here is test it in a MIDI monitor and see if they're communicating at all:

    Windows: MIDI-OX

    Open MIDI-OX with all other programs closed. In the Options>MIDI Devices section, select your controller ports from the MIDI Input menu. Click OK.
    Now MIDI-OX will simply list all incoming MIDI messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    Mac: MIDI Monitor

    Open MIDI Monitor with all other programs closed. In the "Sources" section, check the boxes for your controller's ports.
    Now MIDI Monitor will list all incoming MIDI Messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    The pitch bend message should be labeled as a pitch bend and the volume slider is likely going to be cc7. Keep in mind the volume slider may not connect to anything on it's own and will need to manually mapped to the software.

    If you do see messages show up here, you'll want to contact FL Studio and see if they have any ideas about why the pitch wheel is being ignored in their software. Check to see if their is a MIDI filter that could be filtering the message out.

    I hope this helps!

  • yes, thanks Corey, I've figured it out now. As you say, it is a software assignment, volume CC7, Modulation is CC1. FL Studio can map those globally by using Fruity Wrapper and creating a template. In any case, I come to realize volume on the controller is not that useful for the purpose of volume control since there are so many other ways to control input and/or output volume... Might map it to somethin else. Cheers.
