Control Tempest Pad Volume Via Midi from Ableton

Control Tempest Pad Volume Via Midi from Ableton
« on: November 23, 2019, 08:46:42 AM »
Hi...

I have a sequence running in Ableton's sequencer and I am sending it to my tempest via remote pad play which is working absolutely fine. I'm currently stuck trying to control the volume of a pad through Ableton. I want to bring the volume up gradually. Can this be done? My efforts so far have been unsuccessful as the tempest seems unresponsive to the envelopes.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Steve

Hi Steve,
If you havenít already i suggest you should read the FAQ thread in which i explain that:

   ē   Tempest can only accept Midi CC messages on main MIDI channel as follows:
CC# 12 - Distortion
CC# 13 - Compression
CC# 19 - a value other than 0 reverts Beat FX params to defaults
CC# 20 - Beat FX All Osc Frequency
CC# 21 - Beat FX Feedback
CC# 22 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Cutoff
CC# 23 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Resonance
CC# 24 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Audio Mod
CC# 25 - Beat FX Highpass Filter Cutoff
CC# 26 - Beat FX All Env Attack
CC# 27 - Beat FX All Env Decay

Tempestís Midi implementation is not itís strong point..

Hi Yorgos...

Thanks for the response. Shortly after I posted I did come across this information and realised automation of volume cannot be done.

It's all good though, I'm looking it how the same effect can be achieved by automating velocity in the Ableton sequence which should do the trick.

Thanks.
