Again, hows it everyone doing? I finally decided to start getting a little bit more into VJing and lately have been just having a lot of fun with my trigger finger and Modul8. I've just recently really got back into VJing(I used to mess around with resolume a couple years back but nothing major) and now I'm about ready to finally sit down and learn the basics of modul8. I'm still really into spinning dub and industrial and I LOVE SCRATCHING, but theres something special about manipulating video as well. I do have a couple of questions and was hoping someone on here can take the time to point me in the right direction. First off, I was hoping if someone can tell me how to program a korg kaos pad 3 for the grid in modul8 for changing positions, and also can I program one of the pads on the korg unit for the grid refresh button in modul. I know for a fact the korg is "almost" fully programmable but I just want to know how modul8 recognizes it. When I goto assign midi controls I dont see either the grid or the grid refresh button highlighted for me to program. Also speaking of this question, How Many MIDI Controllers Can Modul8 Handle At Once? I'm hoping three. And does anybody know if I can program the new Stanton Midi controllers(especially the scs.3m)((http://www.enterthesystem.com/system3/scs3m/index.php
Now onto recording....just a couple
Can modul8 record audio in from itunes as well as a visual set? And can I overloop recordings. For instance....I'll have a couple layers playing and I'll start recording one of them. All is fine, the recording automatically plays on the corresponding layer. BUT then when I SWITCH to ANOTHER LAYER just to play over the recorded video, all the effects and positoning refreshes intermintenly. The layer with my recording is fine but everything that is effected in the second layer keeps refreshing all the effects and such. I have noticed that it refreshes after time length of the recorded layer. Kinda weird, but I'm really just trying to accomplish the ability to overloop my visuals and just keep building layers. I hope someone knows what I'm talking about..its kinda of hard to explain but thats why I came to the professionals on this.
Anyways I just want to thank everyone for taking the time to answer a couple noob questions, much obliged
