okay... i understand your message, i also know the problems with midi. May be you know, i am also a programmer of Software (laser Show software), and the user also want to control it by midi. Manny midi controllers are avalliable! All the devices use the same Midi Standard, but the usage of Midi is still very different. This is also the reason i don't support midi feedback in my software generally :-)
but... in the Description of Sunlite Suite 2 (Manual) i am able to read:
Almost everything in Sunlite Suite 2 can be controlled by almost any MIDI or DMX controller. You can
use the console editor to create an image of your own controller. See the console editor topic for more
With the console editor, you can re-create a graphical representation of your MIDI or DMX controller
with moving faders, dials and buttons
okay... its true, there is nothing written abought midi feedback for midi controlers and others..... thats right. So if Midi Feedback is not working.. simply switch it of and remove it from software :-)
I already had a BCF2000 controller but i sent it back to dealer :-) i don't trust the Motorfaders, and when i am doing a job, the controller must work.
The price of livid ohm64 is a other one, and i love it.
Fact is, the usage of midi feedback using the Livid Ohm64 is qute simple !!!! The device doing that, what the software (in this case suite) is saying. If the software tells "Lamp off" ... the lamp is off... if it says "Lamp On" ... then its on :-) there is no Omni Mode or something else, what is makng errors.
The problem is:
Sometimes sunlite suite 2 send the correct values back, and sometimes (mostly) it send funny things back to the midi controller..... mostly it simple send back, what it is receifing.
Did you realy watch all 4 Videos? Is this not surprising what you see there?
We are not spending time programming special functions for specific controllers
I am sorry, but i think i don't talk abought a special function for a specific controller!.. i think the standard function "Midi Feedback" will also not work with many other controllers, using led`s behind their buttons.
as i know, actually only controller witch are using omni mode are working correct, because the feedback for them is not generated by SunliteSuite 2, its generated by their own cpu.
okay.... , may be i will program my own workaround, getting midi from Livid Ohm, filter it and send it to Sunlite via virtual Midi Port, and send back my own midi-feedback to the livid controller.
