Hey there fellow Touchdesigners!
I am currently looking for an alternative to my Launchcontrol XL for live-manipulation of different parameters during performances.
The “steppiness” due to the 7 Bit resolution of the LCXL’s faders and potentiometers was quite challenging for me at the beginning, but my actual workaround is adding a LAG CHOP in the signal chain for smoothing it out a little.
Some newer MIDI controllers are working towards higher resolutions: The Faderfox EC4 has 14 Bit encoders, and I also like the visual mapping through the tiny screens, but I don’t know if, and how, this would be a benefit to my actual MIDI controllers.
I have seen that there is an option for switching between 7 Bit and 14 Bit resolutions inside the MIDI IN CHOP, but with my LCXL this option is greyed out and I have no possibilities for switching the resolutions through e.g. NRPN’s yet.
So my question is: Does anyone work with the Faderfox EC4 and know whether its higher MIDI resolution is translated inside the box and smoothened before it gets into TD? Or is there any other option for changing the MIDI IN CHOP’s resolution to work with smoother transitions?
Cheers in advance for your attention and help
