Detecting midi controller pads in Quartz Composer

Blackbird's picture


I'm trying to use the 8 pads and 8 knobs of my Akai LPD8 MIDI controller in Quartz Composer, so that I can easily control patch parameters.

I have successfully mapped the 8 knobs, via a MIDI Controller Receiver patch, and the Learn Controller button: this added 1 parameter to the patch for each knob.

Unfortunately, the 8 pads aren't detected in the Learn mode, and I haven't been able to map them to patch parameters in any way.

Do you know how to do this?

Thanks for your time!
