CTRL49 & VIP - High Key/Low Key Note Range

Hopefully Nick is reading this lol

Can I cut key ranges to play different instruments like on the M Audio Venom??

I haven't gotten around to digging deeper within the CTRL49... Thanks a lot for your time and responses I really appreciate it very much.

    Assuming you are referring to playing different virtual instruments hosted in the VIP software, check out multis in the manual. They will do exactly that.

    If you mean when acting as a standalone MIDI controller controlling various bits of MIDI hardware, with no DAW or VIP software involved, then no, I don't think it will do that.

  • Hey Serg,

    Thanks for posting!

    You sure can! Use VIP's High Key/Low Key function in your Multis to split the range of the keybed across your plugins. You can also design some great sounds when have these ranges overlap! For instance, you could overlap a few patches on the lower end of the register for a massive bass sound and overlap different patches for the mid and high registers for a complex lead or chordal collection of patches - all in the same Multi! You can also simply split patches by octave to have access to many single patches at once. Maybe you want a patch to be on a range of only one key? Might not be practical but you can do it! :)

    In the example below, I've highlighted the different note ranges for each Multi slot in a long yellow box. These values will determine the High Key/Low Key range for each Multi slot. In the red boxes, you can see that Aeronautical Strings (in Multi slot 1) is set to the low register of C-2 to B-2:



    This range is also represented by the keyboard seen under the Multi slots. You can access the keyboard by clicking the value next to Lo/Hi in the software. If you prefer, you can click and drag a note range right in the keyboard rather than clicking and dragging the note value next to Lo/Hi.

    For more details regarding High Key/Low Key functions, have a look at page 76 of the VIP manual. You can access this document right in VIP by selecting Help > Manual.

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