I am trying the trial version. I am coming from Cantabile so I used to that midi filter. I use an Akai VI61 with the 16 pads on the left side. I use the pads to trigger functions(turn vst on/off, trigger a loop, etc)
I also remap the pads note values. For some songs I have the pads trigger a scale in a specific key. So the first 12 pads might be a "c’ scale in one octave. Sometimes the pads are more specific notes so I can play a bass line with pads close together so the pattern is easier to play.
In cantabile I can do this all from one window. I can set a key range so only the first 12 pads trigger a note. I can then add a mapping feature and change the key note for all pads at one time.
I am trying to figure out an easy way to do that with GP.
