I have been teaching myself how to use breath control with Yamaha synths for a few years, and I am not a very good teacher!
Specifically, I have never been able to figure out how to get Cubase/Reaper/StudioOne/etc to record CC2 data along with the notes so that I can change the patch on the external synth and still hear the original changes in volume, cutoff etc when the midi file is "playing" "triggering" my Motif Rack or MX. (I know MIDI does not play anything, it's not audio. The quote marks mean I don't have the right vocabulary to ask the question properly).
I can get my Reface CS to respond to breath control for volume. Is there a way to control any other parameters? This from the data list:
*RECEIVED CONTROL NUMBER
c = 1 c = 7 c = 11 c = 64
MODULATION VOLUME EXPRESSION SUSTAIN SWITCH
I tried changing dip switches on my ancient but trusty Anatek Wind Machine midi interface...
Ii am totally hooked on breath control, and can't imagine playing without it. I would pay good money for some lessons about breath control and/or MIDI; any one out there use breath control? It looks like I could get what I want by writing automation after I record, but for me that misses the point of using breath control somehow.
Thanks for any advice
