Hi guys. I bought an iConnectMIDI2+ Lightning edition device a couple of weeks ago and it finally arrived a few days ago. I went to set it up last night to remap CC02 (breath control) to Aftertouch only to find that the iConfig software doesn't allow remapping CCs to other MIDI controllers. I opened a Support Ticket to ask about this and was told that the software doesn't currently support remapping of CCs to other MIDI controllers, but it is on the list for “possible future enhancement”.
Before I purchased the device, I carefully checked the user manual and this forum to see if the iConnectMIDI2+ could be configured to do what I wanted it to do...and there is no mention anywhere that only MIDI continuous controllers can be manipulated. I feel this is misleading because the manual is full of references to either "MIDI Controllers" or "MIDI Controller messages"....and of course, aftertouch and pitchbend etc are MIDI controller messages!! I'm sure it's not that hard to implement support for MIDI controllers other than Continuous Controllers....after all, it's just software.
The reasons I'm posting this information are twofold: 1) to warn any future users who may want to manipulate MIDI controllers other than Continuous Controllers, and 2) to ask the developers to please add support for manipulating MIDI controllers other than Continuous Controllers. There are plenty of hardware/software solutions that can facilitate this but none that support iOS devices - which is why I bought the iConnect device in the first place. Unfortunately, I paid a lot of Australian dollars for a device that's just an expensive paperweight right now.....really disappointing.
I'd love to hear what other users think about implementing support for MIDI controllers other than just Continuous Controllers.
