Same for me but it seems Drawbars for Hammond B3 aren’t as popular as they once were. I actually use 17 in total, with the 9 mentioned being buried on page 2. Then there’s 5 x 1/4 pedals, 4 x buttons for toggled FX, 5 more for Keyswitches, then 9 knobs as AUX FX manual over rides..

got the first 3d print of the box. need to make some adjustements to the fader slots and the holes got printed a little too small for the screws to go in so we gotta look at that next week.

picture of the 3d print on the s49 mk2 for reference of size. the feet are going to be positioned so that it can sit right beside the transport and hang off the keyboard. that way it will fit on more keyboard sizes.

Using an M-Audio Oxygen 61 here and have just remapped a lot of the buttons and faders to work better with my new template.

Before now, I was using CC1 and CC11 pretty much exclusively, perhaps also pitch bend but rarely.

Now I've got
1. Modulation (fader)
2. Expression (fader)
3. Pitch Bend (wheel)
4. Volume (fader)
5. RR Reset (button)
6. VEPro Instance Enable (button)
7. VEPro Instance Disable (button)
8. Transport Controls all configured (buttons)
9. 4x Knobs for Send 1-4 levels
10. 1x Knob for Panning
11. Previous Track (button)
12. Next Track (button)

Think that's it!

Nice list! I've been pondering what to set many of the available controls to, on my SL MixFace, and this gives me ideas. 👍🏼

That's all I'm after, CC 11 and CC1. The MixFace can cover all the rest. :geek:

after much use of my prototype and bouncing ideas around this was pretty much right for me as well. the little button at the top can swap between cc11/cc1 and cc21/cc19 or will allow you to reprogram the faders(with the aid of a midi monitor)

I got two S1's especially to control Vienna CC's and and then one for each instrument section of my mock ups. So a total of 16 faders, motorized.

Are you using the motorized faders for cc information(mod, dyn, or vibrato)? If so how are you liking them?

Yes, I use the S1’s for CC data, that’s the main reason I purchased the S1’s. I had an Avid Pro Control for many years and loved it. Faced with having to draw in and manually edit large numbers of tracks with CC data as is necessary for orchestral mock ups, seeing how Avid stopped supporting the Pro Control about five years ago, it was a no brained to get the S1’s. They are basically a smaller and less functional Pro Control.

Added a couple more buttons this week - found out you can create custom midi functions in Logic so set 3 of the buttons to Velocity 1, 75 and 127 now too.
