MIDI setup (channel an CC mapping)

I'm looking for a new MIDI Keyboard/Controller to get a better control to Caustic especially when I'm playing live with this great app.

To find the right one I need to know a few things about the MIDI implementation in Caustic.

I tried to find the answers in the forum but without success...


When I configure Caustic to "One MIDI Channel per Instrument" channel 1-14 is for the rack places - that's clear.

But what's about channel 15 and 16?

Controller mapping: Is it only related to the controller number regardless of the MIDI channel or will the channel be recognized, too.

For example:

SubSynth-Volume: MIDI-Channel 1 Controller 42

PCMSynth-Volume: MIDI-Channel 2 Controller 42

BassLine-Volume: MIDI-Channel 3 Controller 42


For the Mixer I see only Ch1-7 for mappings. What's about Ch8-14?


And finally can I copy the settings to another device (moving between two PCs or between PC<->Android-Tablet)? Or do I have to set all mappings in each device separately?


Thank you for help.

Channels 15 and 16 don't do

Channels 15 and 16 don't do anything.

Controller channel information is recognised.

The mixer only works in on screen mode. Channels 8-14 are duplicated with 1-7.

Not sure about PCs, but you should see a MIDI mapping file in your caustic folder. Just copy it.
