map sustain switch to BFD automation?

<< < (3/3)

john emrich:
Just now seeing this.  I will use BFD2 for this example since you didn't specify.  At the bottom of the GUI you will see the learn button.  All you do is press it and you will see a lot of items turn green.  Click on the panic button, push the sustain button and you will see a value show up.  Click learn again to turn off the green indicators and you are good to go.  Then you save the MIDI Map and automation.

It won't matter what CC you are using.  I used 64 when I did mine because we don't use "hold" as a function.

Good luck.

John, what you are instructing is for making the sustain/choke switch into all off, as a 'panic' button, is that right? Or is that what you use for a cymbal choke?
I did try my thought last night, and it seemed to work. I used Zenedit, went to basic settings for each trigger, opened each cymbal crossfade function up so I had 4 choices and made the last choice a cymbal choke for each cymbal individually. I set the last crossfade strike to work beyond 115. So I can now strike a cymbal with authority and it rings out pretty well, and if I strike it very firmly again, it chokes. That was the function I wanted. I will try the settings you suggested for the sustain button, a panic button does seem to be worth having as well. Thanks!

This was quite straightforward to do on BFD2, but it simply had no effect. The "64" continues to show on top of my panic button when in learn mode, the MIDI message indicator continues to verify CC 064, vel 0, ch 10 when I press the momentary switch, but cymbals continue to ring out. Yet, when I use the mouse to press the panic button in the interface, it correctly does the poor man's choke. Any suggestions how to troubleshoot?

I am in BFD3 and essentially I am finding the same thing as JimmyTheSaint. I can set it up as instructed, I can see the #123 light up in the box on the panic switch in the GUI after I push the learn button. Once saved, I have no kill on the notes, but it does work just fine when I test it with the mouse. I think we must be missing a piece of this puzzle? lol!
