Problem with CSS and Midi Fighter Twister

Hello!

I have try to configure the Midi Fighter Twister in CSS so i can have the four bank with the different led colors at disposition, and une the side buttons to switch between controls. To do so i have configured a controller with the 64 knobs and switch. But when if setting up some bank controls, only the 16 first encoders and switch from the bank A are working, and not the others.

I have checked with midi monitoring if all the midi assignements are corrects, and they are. I have try multiple configurations for the buttons type and nothing is working.

Am i missing something? Thanks for your help

Also a strange thing is occuring : when i sent one encoder from the bank A to control a midi on/off option, nothing is working except if i put the button setting to "obsolute", and then when opening the project, it is working perfectly ONLY after pressing the button 3 times. Strange..

UPDATE : the encoders seems to be working i was wrong. But the switches from bank B C and D still give no signal

Hey Mathematics30,

It sounds like you have mapped only single side button. In order to select other three banks you will need to map more side buttons.

Or use the "Cycle" option if you plan to select all four banks by pressing a single button.

If you still have issues than post the screencapture of your settings in the Midi Fighter Utility.

Hello! Thanks for your response. Could you please indicate me where to locate the paramters your are talking about?

Im not sure if if getting understand here. Or if i do, sorry because english is not my native langage! :) I will try re-explain more clearly what i was trying to achieve :

Step 1 - With the midi fighter utility, configure colors on the four bank based on my needs
Step 2 - In CSS, inside controller manager, create a new controller with all the 64 rotary encoders and switches mapped into it with the midi monitoring system
Step 3 - In Ableton, configure templates of some vst with all the 64 rotary encoders and switches assigned to it via one and only parameter bank. Im using the midi fighter to switch between paramters, and not modes or parameters banking, so i can get the colors changes of the midi fighter fit the controls changes
Step 4 - Everything is working so far, unless when i try to map the switches from the B C and D bank, nothing happen. Only the rotary encoders from the bank B C and D are working, not the switches.

Also there is this strange behaviour as i was talking about : when i want to assign one of the switch (those which are working, from the bank A) for exemple to a mute button (so a valu between 1 and 0) into a VST, still via the parameter bank, if i select the "on/off" settings for the switch, nothing is happening. i have to select the setting "absolute" and the i get signal, but this is only working after pressing the switch 2 or 3 times. Note that i had to configure the switches to "CC TOGGLE" into midi fighter uitlity, otherwise the value will reset once i stop pressing the switch..

i hope explained the problem better. Here I have link to the post the controller settings and the script that i have made

PS : Normally the track type in the script was set to "selected", i was just doing some tests.

Hey, there's no need to create a new controller for the MIDI Fighter Twister. a pre-built Controller is available in the Import section or you can use Stevan's which is configured for all 4 virtual banks on the Twister.
You can download it here: https://remotify.io/community/question/stevans-css-controller-template-d...

Hey! Thanks for your answer. So i have try to made a new script now using the pre built controller you gave to me. Problem : now even the first 16 Knobs and switches arent working. They are working again once i switch in the settings to the pre built midi fighter controller with only 16 knobs and switches, or the one that i created.. But nothing is happening with the one you gave to me.

I really dont understand what im doing wrong here, because all of that process seems pretty easy to do and to understand, so i dont know where i could have messed something. I have try to make the simplest script possible (i'll link it to my post so you can check if there is anything wrong with it), and nothing is happening..

Hey. I just tested your script with the 'DJ TT MIDI Fighter Twister' Controller file which comes with the App and it works.
I also tested with the 'Midifighter Twister 4-Bank CC knobs' Controller file and as you said it does not work.

I'm not sure why this is at the moment but I would suggest to use 'DJ TT MIDI Fighter Twister' for now.
