Presets / Re: [Hermu] NOVATION Impulse 49/61

You are a legend TY.

I tried the first approach ,I did not need to add a Master Bus in the track view,the master Bus is first in my console view but changing those parameters fixed the pan and balance issues.

Thank you very much.

The simplest you can do is just press "Lock" button in the Main section, to lock left and right channel of E-MU output. Fader 9 continue control just left one, but since they are locked it will work as expected.

If you go "Master" bus approach, the preset has to be modified. You don't need any new strips, just create a new bus "Master", move it to the first position (in the Track view) and assign its output to your usual hardware output. Everything else should be routed to that bus.
Open AZ Controller GUI, click on "Logic" tab, select "_fFaderPar(_Ch)" in the Logic Control section, click on "_Ch:9 - WAI Master Volume" action in the list, in the Action configuration section change "Master" to "Bus" and "<First in WAI>" to "<First>".

If you don't want "Master" bus always in the first position... Click on "Options" Tab, in "Software States" section select "<New set>" (in the first drop box), type "_BusName" in the input bos right of it, press "Save". Modify "Default" in the input box to "Master" and press "Save" again. Return to the "Logic" tab and change "<First>" to "_BusName". "Master" will appear on the right (since that is the only choice).

That is a combination of preset definitions (which you can change... well, with some effort ;) ) and Cakewalk long existing definitions (from Sonar, but still in CbB).

In the preset from the first post in this thread Fader 9 is controlling the first WAI Main (hardware) channel. By default, that will be left channel of the first pair of outputs of your audio interface. By default, hardware outputs are not linked in Cakewalk (there is an icon to link them), so the right channel stay untouched.

Usually Cakewalk users are not touching hardware outputs in projects, leaving them at 0dB. For the purpose of "Master" volume people use a Bus named "Master". AZ Controller supports "named strips", so the preset can be changed to control the bus "Master". But the author of this particular preset has decided to control hardware output (probably he link them). Everyone is free to have own approach  8)

Aaah,I get you.
TY for the quick replay.

So I need to create a new software Master bus and assign split left and right channels to that bus as Channel 9 is controlling the hardware master bus.

I have an old E-MU 1212m card.
I can create an extra asio channel strip in the E-MU Patchmix and make a master bus from that.
Will the AZslow channel 9 recognise the new master bus or do I need to do some fiddling under the hood?

I finally got this working with Cakewalk by Bandlab but there are  two problems.

When I turn the Master Fader or volume slider 9 on the Impulse to minimum and turn track 1 up on the Impulse,there is still sound coming out of the right speaker,the left is muted like it should be.

Also when I move ENC 1 (pan) to the right on the Impulse and turn down slider 9 (master Fader),I still hear the right channel,it is only when the left channel is set to 0  with  the master fader (Volume slider 9)set to 0 -INF that there is no sound.

Awesome utility besides those two issues.



P.S. I am using the latest beta version of AZSlow.

From https://www.azslow.com/index.php/topic,565.0.html

Functionality (v0.5)
  • transport buttons as labeled (long press STOP for RTZ)
  • Shift -  in general is locked till another button is pressed (which use shift). So it is not required to press it simultaneously
  • Master - toggle between tracks and buses (lit when on buses). Controlled strip follows mouse operations as well. With Shift: show Track view
  • Solo/Mute - toggle solo/mute on controlled strip (with Shift in rude mode)
  • Arm - toggle record arm on controlled strip
  • Pan/Link - select parameter to be controlled by the fader:
    • Link - switch between strip itself and sends from this strip (lit when it sends mode). Prev/Next select the send to control in sends mode.
    • Pan - switch between volume and pan, for the strip or its send (depends on Link)
  • Prev/Next - navigate between strips or sends (depends from the Link state). With Shift: Undo/Redo
  • Read/Write - toggle read/write automation for the parameter currently controlled by the fader
  • Knob functionality depends from knob mode. It is controlled by Channel, Section and Scroll buttons, current mode is indicated by corresponding LED:
    • Channel - knob switch controlled channel (also in Link mode), pressing reset currently controlled by the fader parameter
    • Section - knob works like time jogger, turning while pressed jog by measures, otherwise by beats. With Shift: show PRV
    • Scroll - LED lit continuously. Knob scrolls, pressing switch direction
    • Zoom - activated by Shift + Scroll, LED blinks. Knob zoom, pressing switch direction
  • Marker - toggle FF/REW between normal and marker mode (lit when in marker). With Shift: show Matrix view
  • Click - toggle metronome. With Shift: show Console

Hello Alexey,
Zoom mode works great now. I am so happy with the way everything works.
You have taken something that was minimally useful and turned it into an awesome
piece of gear!
Thank you so much!!

Some comments about "MCU mode", which can help you to understand why you can't assign controls or that was not working correctly (all the following is described in different topics I have recommended you to read, but not in one place and so hard to realize).

Faders on Macke device are touch sensitive. Any device which emulate it, including yours, has to emulate touch as well. So, when you move fader you get 3(!) messages:
1) fader touched
2) fader moved
3) fader released.
In case you "learn" such control, it will really learn "touched" message, not "moved" message. And you get not working configuration. To solve the problem, you need separate control, f.e.
"Fader 1 Touch". You can put single "Undefined" action in the logical list (since for your device Touch is not real). Learn (assign MIDI to it). And change control type to System in the Options tab (don't forget Save button). System typed controls don't trigger "Last MIDI event" no control switch into tab.
Then you can learn your real fader (since messaged (1) and (2) will no longer interfere the process).

Knobs. Your knobs are encoders. In MCU mode they generate a kind of "turned right" and "turned left" messages. Simple knobs are finite and generate absolute position. Most tutorials are written for finite knobs, but I periodically mention you just need to change Value Action parameter to "Encoder" (better followed by adjusting resolution for your taste) to make encoders work as desired (also try "Accelerated" flag). In MIDI mode, you can ask your device emulate finite knobs. But that is just cut the functionality of your device, related parameters will "jump" or have to be "cached".

Thank you for the response!  I will check out all those posts.  I have already read the starter material, but since I was in Mackie mode on the keyboard was not able to do the faders and pots with the startup preset, the user mode on the keyboard should prove a lot easier to do, since the faders and rotors just work on one channel, instead of two, I've learned a bunch by just playing with the IQP preset and trying to delete and copy the items in the action list and make my own.  Thank you again!!!
