Setup: Multiple actions for 1 MIDI input, interrupting sample

Postby hhh » Tue Nov 10, 2020 9:12 pm

Hello, apologies if something similar already exists in the program or if this has already been asked.

While setting up my MIDI drumkit to use G-Stomper Rhythm as a samples source, I noticed few things:
-The hi-hat pedal, which should instantly stop the sound assigned to one of the drum inputs, does not work that way when connected to the program.
-It is only possible to assign one action to each input from my MIDI device, in the Setup menu > Global Key Mappings
-The "Sample Mute ON/OFF" feature in the Globay Key Mappings (from the MIDI tab in the Setup menu) does not immediately mute the assigned sample when the button is pressed. Instead, it only mutes it if the button is being pressed and held before the sample starts playing.

As such, I think it would be very nice if there was the option to assign one input to multiple actions, as well as an "Instantly Mute" action in the Global Key Mappings, or something to that effect. It would help me with my situation, and I think it might be useful in other cases as well.
However, if there is an alternative solution to my issue, I would like to know. Thank you :)
(PS. I am a complete beginner at this, so I hope I didn't misuse any technical terms :? )

Welcome to the forum, hhh
and thanks for your message.

Since this is actually possible already, I've moved your topic over to general questions.

This can easily be achieved using a mute group with 3 DrumSampler Tracks.
Example:
Add T07, T08, T09 all to the same mute group, e.g. Mute Group A.
T08 = Closed HH
T09 = Open HH
T07 = Some silent sample, you can use a short sample and set the its level to zero.
Now map the hi hat pedal to T07 if you want it just to stop T08 and/or T09.
Otherwise you can map the pedal to T08, which will play the Closed HH and stop T09.

I guess with "instantly mute" you mean a mute that hard cuts the samples instead of just muting the sequence as the mutes currently do.
Such mutes are not planned, sorry.
But I'm pretty sure the mute group solution above should work very well.
If you have further questions about the mute group solution, just let me know.
