Re: Echoloop VST MIDI controller

Thanks everyone for your assistance :)

Ricky, I am indeed using Live 8. 

I am using the correct MIDI commands, of that I am certain. 

One thing that occurred to me is that I have Ableton commands coming in on Channel 5, and the Echoloop coming in on Channel 2. Maybe that's bad? Maybe I need to route the Echoloop commands through the same channel as the host? I guess I will try that this evening after working hours…

So Ricky, a configured set would be the AWESOME. Please do send? 

And Per, regarding this: 

"Instead you could set up a direct MIDI path into the Echoloop and feed it directly from your external MIDI control gear. "

Not sure what that means but it sounds damned sexy ! Can you clarify?

Thanks again to all, you are the wind beneath my wings :D


Phil :)

I had a hell of a time with it too. Got it to mostly work finally but only  once I assigned the correct midi notes AND midi learned them in Ableton. One or the other did not work. 

I was supposed to test something else about this but haven't gotten back to it for some time... won't have time for another week or two but if you're still having problems after this let me know as I'll be diving back in soon too.

Hey loopers,

Anyone using the Echoloop VST maybe help me out  here?

Running Echoloop VST inside Ableton, sending MIDI via Gordius LG.

Having a knotty time of it, finally got some response from the VST but only when using Ableton's MIDI mapping mode. So no matter what command the LG is sending, if I've mapped it in Ableton, the control responds. Fine, BUT that limits me to the VST controls that are exposed in the UI.

Going back to the drawing board, I can find no way to get the VST to respond to direct MIDI.

There is likely a clue here in text from Matthias' manual, but I am not sure what it means really:

For the VST Parameters (accessed by the host...), its slightly different since the knobs (CC in MIDI) are in the same list. So far only the real buttons have a parameter. Power user want them all:
- 8 real buttons
- 34 virtual buttons
- 4 knobs
- 25 menu items

I have the VST MIDI channel (BtnChan) set to 2, and sending commands via channel 2 from LG. I've tried every possible setting off/on in the MIDI prefs. In any case, Ableton is 'seeing' the MIDI incoming, but VST does not respond (unless I succumb to Ableton MIDI mapping) :)

What am I missing here?

Many thanks in advance.

Phil :)
