The pad is learnable; the learn thingies are where you assign the destinations. Ctrl-shift-click those and you get our typical box. The left one is just pre-wired to respond to a pad.
Really, I was trying to get it to respond to my ReMote 25 through the haze of Sonar's ACT. I had the manual open right there with my test Dr.D project. The ACT learn works in most cases, but because of your Z-axis, which is responding to the mouse click, right?, ACT was always always assigning the MIDI-controller to Z. In ACT-learn mode it would record all three controllers (x,y,z) and only expose the last one to act, which is apparently z. In the end, I just figured out how to hack the ACT xml file and put those 6 controllers first.
But before I got to all that... although I'd set my pad up to match the default, I was thrown by not being able to just ctrl-shift each of the nubins and assign it that. Which, admittedly, is completely dense, because it's the axis you need not the widget. But when I used destination to assign all I was able to do was assign the controller to change the routing not the nubin axis.
Hey, at least I admit I'm learning challenged. I'm still not sure I've got my mind entirely around the Z-axis theory and application.
Brilliant work. Good luck with the data.
1) Does this mean that z is always either exactly 1 or 0 and the low and high range sliders are really setting clicked and non-clicked values?
2) Is the Z axis truly only connected to the mouse, or does it respond whenever the nubby is being actively controlled vs. free floating? (by a knob, controller, whatever)
To answer your questions:1) Yes, if you're only using the mouse, but see #2 below.2) If you connect a MIDI CC like a knob or slider to the Z axis of a nubby, the Z axis will take on any value from 0 to 1 as determined by the MIDI CC value. (Actually it will take on 128 values from 0 to 1 since MIDI CCs have 128 discrete values.) Is that what you mean? Sorry if I don't understand your question.
Try it. I have to say that for a plugin that I wasn't particularly stoked about, Dr. D is absolutely sick. Have you changed the filter from previous AD products? I do wish Deverb was UB though...
