Assign aftertouch to a knob?

I want to control my Roland D550 with a synth controller.  The filter can only be modulated by incoming aftertouch data. My question is,  can the Impulse assign it's aftertouch to one of its knobs?

No, you can only assign control change (CC), RPN and NRPN to the knobs.  Channel aftertouch is a separate message type that can't be assigned.  However, the keyboard itself is pressure senstive and will transmit aftertouch information.
