How can I control a toggle vcs widget using MIDI cc?

0 votes
I want to toggle a Submix send on and off in the multigrid mixer using one of the buttons of my AKAI MidiMix. The problem is the button sends a Midi cc value of 127 when pressed and 0 if released. It seems like it doesn't matter if I set the widget type to button or toggle, it always behaves like a button. Usually I would just work around using some capytalk but I can't access the submix send of the multigrid mixer this way... Any ideas? Thanks!

Just to confirm, are you looking at the Mixer layout of the Multigrid? And are you trying to toggle the widget named "ToSubmix" (or whatever you named your submix)?  The one that is a potentiometer by default?  And you've changed that widget to a Toggle-Fill?

You could try something like this:  Add a SoundToGlobalController to a new Track and in that Value field you could say:

!cc88 asToggle (or whatever your Akai is sending)

and the GeneratedEvent would be


Then use the gear menu add !ToSubmix to the shared event values.

I am trying to do the same.

Sorry, what do you mean by
 use the gear menu ?
click on the gear icon in the multigrid (not the vcs), then select the grid wide shared controls and add the according hotValue to the list
