Arturia Essential Controllers - MIDI Spec
I've been searching for the MIDI specification of Arturia's essential controllers but can't seem to find anything.
The manual states that the pads encoders and sliders can all be assigned to specific CCs, which is all good.
But what I want to know is whether any of the other buttons output CC data and can be repurposed if required.
Also is there any banking for those 8 pads, so that more than 8 assigned samples can be accessed?
Hoping there might be some users here that can answer this.
