Thread: Modulation Wheel Not Working?!?!?!?

  1. #1

    Icon5 Modulation Wheel Not Working?!?!?!?

    I just got an AKAI MPK 49 midi keyboard controller for Christmas and I don't know how to make the modulation wheel work with FL Studio 8.

    The pitch bender will work just fine, but when I mess with the modulation wheel, nothing happens!

    I know theres probably settings that have to be tweaked in FL or the controller itself to make it work but I don't know exactly what those settings are.

    Is there anybody with a midi keyboard controller who uses FL Studio that can help me get my modulation wheel to work? You would be my life saver!
    PLEASE HELP!

    Its not broke or nothing. FL is the only program I know of that does that dumb shit.

    This what you do

    Go to insert and choose Midi Out

    Right click on the lever to the right side of the Midi Out and choose configure.

    At this part you really don't need to put a name or change anything except the controller # to 1 instead of -1, then hit accept.

    Now right click on the lever again and choose Link to controller. Just move your mod wheel and it should work.

    Make sure the port is set to the same vst you want the mod wheel to be used with. I usually start at 3 because port 1 and 2 are used by other things in FL. Also make sure its on the the right channel in midi out if you have a multi out vst like SampleTank.

    Its best to just clone the midi outs when you want the mod wheel to control something different, just make sure u change the channel. There's no way of having the mod wheel ready to go by default.

    yall got it all wrong, go to the browser click on Current Project then click on "Generators" whatever VST your trying to use should be listed click it, scroll down to you see MIDI CC# (Modulation Wheel) right click that and select link to controller then move your Modulation Wheel on your keyboard and it will automatically link. If you notice all the other MIDI CC# you can link all of those most people over look the MIDI CC# options in fl studio.

    Basically the same thing, but I was telling him how it can work with multi out synths at the same time. All that really matters is that -1 is changed to 1 and its linked to the mod wheel.

    I did this with my Axiom 49 and it worked, but it does this really weird thing. Whenever I roll the mod wheel up it goes up, but when I roll it down, it doesn't come back down, it just goes back up and then resets itself from the bottom again.
