Is it possible to set knobs to NOT transmit CCs?

Hi all, can't seem to find any info on this so i'm hoping for some wisdon here: is it possibe to make the BSII's knobs stop sending CCs from the midi out?

I'm using the BSII's midi output going into my Evolver desktop synth so i can play its notes with the BSII's keyboard, but when i adjust the knobs on the BSII, all hell breaks loose on the Evolver as it receives the CCs. Ofcourse these CCs don't match the same destinations as the BSII so i'd really like to turn the output of CCs off.

I've looked at the Local settings but they don't seem to help - whether On or Off, the Evolver still gets CCs.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Hi Mate,

As far as i'm aware you can't do that - you could buy a midi transformer unit that sits between your BS2 and evolver that would filter them out, or if you went through a computer it could do the same task.

Looking through the evolver manual you could be in luck as it has a built in Midi receive filter (See screenshot).

Try the different settings as per the manual and see if any work... It appears that 'Pro' mode would be best, but it does say note/controller data is received... So maybe won't do as you require.... Try them all! :)

thanks for looking into it, skijumptoes.

if you look at those options from the Evolver manual, all of them let note & controller data in, except the topmost 'all off' option which doesnt let notes in either. there's no 'note only' mode >:(

i'll put in a feat request for 'local controller data only'. hopefully i'm not the only person wanting to use the BSII with a 'slave' synth (& no computer)...

cheers!

Nope, you're not alone there. I've got a sinilar setup and it would be a real help to turn ff everything except note values.

Hi guys,

At this moment, it is not possible to turn off the controls from sending CC messages. We do appreciate the feedback and I will create a feature request case for our developers so they can look into the possibility of adding this function in the future.
