Multiple keys assigned to the same function?

Hi,

I have been using MadMapper for quite some time but I am newbie to MIDI and Keyboard controls. I have two clips that I need to assign "Rewind and Play" and Quad "On" keys, meaning two keys are assigned to each function. But the problem is that "Rewind and Play" doesn't work properly when two keys are assigned.

Is there anyway to work around this?

Hi,
You can't map two keyboard keys to the same parameter. Neither can you connect two MIDI events to the same parameter, or two event of the same type (OSC / DMX...)
But you can create a cue with the parameters you want. To do the the easiest is to
- select a cue cell in the cue bank (cues are from second row, first row contains scenes)
- press the cue bank Edit button (or Cmd+Shift+C / Ctrl+Shift+C)
- click the widgets corresponding to the parameters you want to store in the cue (ie: /medias/myMovie.mov/rewind)
- map a computer keyboard key to this cue
Then create another cue.
Does it solve ?
