Nephton with Ableton 6.10

Hi Guys,

Nephton is very nice! Good job. One thing which puzzles me though - if I'm controlling it from Ableton, the kick drum is on C1 but as I move up the keyboard some of the samples from Nephton don't play? Why are they not all mapped? I've searched the manual but nothing I can see relates to this.

Thanks. :D

The number of Nepheton's instruments is 17 and number of midi notes is much higher. Why should they all be mapped?. If the default mapping isn't suitable for You, there's way to change it manually. All You need is to re-edit the Nepheton.ini file to change the mapping in a manner You want.

It's the part of this file responsible for that:

Code: Select all

    <assign note="35" instrument="BD"/>
    <assign note="36" instrument="BD"/>
    <assign note="38" instrument="SD"/>
    <assign note="40" instrument="SD"/>
    <assign note="61" instrument="LC"/>
<assign note="[note_number]" instrument="[instrument_acronym]"/>

best regards,

Ok, I found the file. It makes a bit of sense now (just a bit) so just a question. c1 = 35 right? So why do the number not just go 36,36,37? Or do they not represent the notes in this way?

Yes, 35 = C1. Those numbers correspond to the midi notes.

We wanted to make the mapping as close as possible to General Midi Drum Map. But not all instruments are mapped in this way, since some of the instruments don't exsist in GM.
