So I bought something with Knobs & Sliders - Presets and Midi Questions
I bought a Novation Control XL
I know it works with iOS. I quickly tested it using midi learn to map its 8 sliders to 8 volume sliders in AUM. Success. I had questions as to multiple iOS being controlled and how to manage them.
It doesn’t seem like it would be a good idea to willy-nilly make mappings to a synth in a host like AUM not being sure that those mappings would be saved for just that session and that instance of the synth. And while I know you can create mappings using Novations tool, am I wrong in thinking it needs to be hooked up to the Mac to do so? How would I then use midi learn?
Basically I’m looking for best practices and how to from peeps who’ve mapped their controllers to more than on app.
Thanks in advance.
