    MIDI controller question

    Am I right saying that Aftertouch can also be controlled by CC#4?
    I am a bit confused, in front of me I have a table telling me that it is CC#3, but I doubt that.

    CC4 is the foot control.

    aftertouch does not have a cc number.
    It is sometimes referred to as mono-touch.

    Aftertouch's pseudo CC designation (as used by Kontakt and a few other sources) is 131.

    Thanks guys, then both tables are wrong. But what do I do applying aftertouch when the keyboard doesn't have one? OK, I can draw it in SONAR, but there must be some drawing/automation mechanism present to do it with any adjustable control (knob or slider).

    At least I hope so,

    Aftertouch is triggered when you stop pressing the key on your keyboard.
    In the sequencer aftertouch is triggered when the note stop playing.
    So aftertouch cannot be triggered by CC.


    Unless I missed something.

    Fred aren't you confusing NOTE OFF with AFTERTOUCH?

    In another thread on this forum addressing more or less the same question someone suggested using MIDI-OX or similar to reroute a controller you DO have into the aftertouch code.

    Maybe... Just one note has so many parameters!

    AT is generated by key pressure that you apply after pressing down and holding a key or keys.

    There are 2 types of midi AT:
    Polyphonic -- separate for each note
    Channel -- max for a channel, selected from the notes currently held

    Like Dan said, AT is not a channel controller in the midi spec. However, my old DX7 implements polyphonic aftertouch as CC#3.

    All I've ever done is choose After Touch in Sonar's PRV and drawn it in. But when I work on music later today, I'll poke around to see if there's a way to assign AT to a knob or slider. I've never tried to do that. Since AT isn't a regular MIDI controller, I have my doubts it's possible, but maybe it would work to manually assign CC131 to a slider on your controller.
