I am new to the MODX and have been wondering about the following:
I managed to load a drum-pattern and, as described in the manual, when I then press the "Part/Element" button the view on the home screen presents me with a couple of volume for some of the individual drum sounds in the lower right part of the screen. They are named BD, SN, HH etc.
When you move the sliders/faders, you will see that the text-box appearing (white text on black background) in the top of the screen (it only appears while you're adjusting the sound level) is saying something like (for the Bass Drum in this example) "Drum key C1: level <some number between 0-127>", which obviously refers to the fact that you are now adjusting the volume for the key C1.
I found a drum kit which I ran with the arpeggiator "on hold" (or whatever it's called), and then I wanted to regulate the sound levels for the individual drums. Guess what? It worked for all the involved (programmed) elements.. except the Bass Drum. Why? Because that particular pattern seems to be using another BD sound which is mapped to say.. the D5-key or something similar.
Now the challenge: Is it possible to change the mapping of the slider to control the BD sound? I find it mildly ridiculous that those slider/fader mappings are fixed because..
Exchanging the two sound patches on keys C1 and D5 will not solve the problem.. the pattern will just get another BD sound, but the slider will still only engage the C1-key.. and as stated above, the arp-pattern is using D5 as the sound.
If it's not possible to changed the slider-mapping to whatever other key you want them to control, can I then instead re-program the selected arp. drum-pattern to actually use the C1-key as BD, and then change/swap the sound patches between C1 and D5 ? (in that case the slider would work for the BD part).
Any help would be welcome
Thanks for taking your time to read this post!
