Giada with MIDI Drum Pad?

Post by tawm » Sun Jul 19, 2015 2:35 am

Absolutely loving this software, but I can't quite seem to get my drum pad to play nice.

When I create a new sample channel and set the key press to a trigger on my drum pad, it will double fire the sample (note on/off).

I then bind key release to the same pad and now the note seems cut off. I've tried one shot basic, press, etc but nothing will allow me to smoothly play the samples.

Any recommendations to get this working like a sample pad?

Hi tawm,

That's a known issue. It happens when your device does not send a real Note Off, but a Note Off with velocity 0 (or 127). Go to the configuration window, MIDI tab and check "Device does not send NoteOff". That should fix your troubles ;)

Hi ...I hadthe same problem with a drum pad I used into my microcontroller (microcontroller spits out midi) ...My problem was 'bounce' ... when you do a digital read (for instance), you can get a bit of bounce from the drum pad, resulting in double triggering ... I fixed it by slowing down the digital read on the microcontroller by adding 'delay (1);'
