Hi, I'm using a BCR2000, the Mountain Utilities for the commands and Midi2LR to transform those into Lightroom commands. The BCR2000 has 32 possible presets, on each preset you can define 4x8 (four buttons to choose the layout for 8 Encoders)+3x8 (three rows of 8 encoders)= 56 Encoders and 4x8 (multi use)+2x8 (single use)+8 (single use)= 56 Buttons. That's quite something and of course I always can define a new preset. Nearly endless possibilities and it all works really great
But nevertheless on some presets I need more buttons than encoders and would like to define some of the single-use encoders to work as a button (toggle on / toggle off) for the reason, that I don't have to change presets.
In combination with the Midi2LR software I only can use CC options. Encoders are defined as Channel # (preset #) Controller ## Value 1 = 0 Value 2 = 127 Mode = Absolute. So the encoder has 127 steps to go. Buttons are defined as 1 CC Nr Value 1 = 127 Value 2 = 0 Mode = Toggle Off and so working toggle on/off. This all works just fine.
To get a button, I tried different things and set an encoder to CC ## Value 1 = 127 Value 2 = 0, then Value 1 = 0 Value 2 =1, then Value 1 = 0 and Value 2 = 0 and changed the Mode with all options: Absolute - Relative - ... But nothing worked. The still astonishing fact was that my encoders still did run from Value 0 up to 127, no matter what I defined for Value 2. What's wrong?
And the more general question "Can a encoder be programmed to work like a button?"
