Topic: is "aftertouch" a continuous controller ?

    is "aftertouch" a continuous controller ?


    I'm a bit confused as to what I can, and can't do with midi aftertouch.

    Is midi "aftertouch" a continous controller ? If so, what is its number ?
    Can it be assigned controls, say in Gigastudio or Kontakt ?

    I would have thought that aftertouch would have been ideal to control cross-fading between vibrato and non-vibrato samples.

    Does anyone use it ?

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Channel Aftertouch acts exactly like a continuous controller, and can indeed be assigned to Kontakt (presumably Giga too?), but its actual protocol is outside the set of "regular" controllers 0-127, but usually appears separately in menus by its actual name .."aftertouch"!

    Thanks ... I've fouund it in Kontakt, but not in Giga. Giga appears to only have the regular CC's assignable to parameters. Can anyone tell me this ain't so.

    I don't have my Giga machine on right now, but I seem to remember a parameter for AT. It's not one of the #1-=126 ccs allowed, has a different header, but behaves the same, and I am pretty sure Giga can handle it, though it may require a separate dimension.
    It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...

    Assigning aftertouch is something you do in the Giga Editor.
