Midi Mapping on Fader not saved when restart the software

Postby goodastruff » Thu Apr 20, 2017 1:32 am

Hi,
First question...
I'm using actually the Beta version April 10, 2017 - 17.410.8028.1204. I'm on Windows 7 64 bits with DVC4 Gold device. I'm using the MIDI AKAI APC20 Professional Ableton Controller to trigger the software.

I assign push button to scenes (Everything is working perfectly). I can save the file, close Daslight and reopen it and everything is working again. But, when I assign fader (channel from fixture) to a midi fader, during the session (during the time I let Daslight opened), I can control the fader (example, Dimmer of a fixture). I save the file and close Daslight. When I reopen it, all the MIDI mapping to all the fader are gone. I've to reconfigure all the fader channel to the MIDI fader again.

The bug occur for any channel assign to fader. I can assign Shutter, Dimmer, Color, anything... As soon as I close Daslight (even if I save the file before with all setting perfectly working), when I reopen the software, all the MIDI mapping are gone.

Does anybody have an idea of what's happen or what I do of wrong ?

Second question...
Is there a possibility of conflict with the following case. I'm want to use 1 MIDI fader to control 2 channels of 2 fixtures, 1 with the « Full Range Triggering » and the other without the « Full Range Triggering ». On the DMX channel of the first fixture, the value range is between 0 to 255 (DMX) and on the other fixture, the value range is between 125 to 150 (DMX). When I use that setup (1 slider fader on my MIDI device to control 2 DMX Channel inside Daslight), some time, I lose the setting of the second fixture. For I don't know witch raison, the value (DMX) of the second channel goes down, like between 0 and 25. (It's like if the value shift down to the previoux group of value).

If you have idea on this too, It will be very appreciated !
Thanks for your help and your great software ! (Very satisfied)

Hi goodastruff,

Can't reproduce the problem here. Would you be able to PM your showfile with specific examples of what faders you are trying to map. Exact details of what channels and presets.

If you could make a video as well that would be really helpful. Kind regards
Benno

Hi, Thanks for your answer.

You can check this video.

You can download the file of the show here
https://ibm.box.com/s/tpbx9gvtkzro7rybwx4h8m4yq7laodjv

These is a bug when I try to attach file on the forum saying : Error, Invalid File extension : Filename.dvc
You can download the file with the box link.

I used version of Daslight Beta 22 mars, 10 april, the problem occur on any of the Beta version. When I use the official version of 22 dec 2016, the problem is not there.

Thanks

Hi,

Obviously, this bug happens when the "Load the last file" option is selected.
When the show file is opened manually, the MIDI mapping is correct.

Hope this helps.

Hi Pat,

No that Beta included a fix for a different bug to do with Midi controller ordering. I'm still investigating your problem and will get back to you with more info early next week.

Pol thanks for the extra info.

Kind regards
Benno

Hi Guys,
Thanks for your help and your answer. I tried the temporary solution that you suggested me and effectively, the midi channel become enabled when I load manually the file. I saw another strange thing when I load the file, with that video, you will be able to better understand the problem. I don't know if it's related to, but, you will be able to figure out what is the cause. Sorry for my « great accent » (joke), my main language is french ! He He !
Thanks

I can confirm this. When auto loading last file is enabled all midi controls are lost. If you reload the file manualy everything works fine

I confirm that in my previous post (Fri Apr 21, 2017 9:22 pm), when you load manually the file, the setting explained in the video is not saved.
Thanks.

Hi Pat,

Tested here and can reproduce, I have passed on the details to the developers so they can investigate and work on a fix for the next release. Cheers.
