Minibrute with a Midi Keyboard Which Has More Key Than 25
« on: October 17, 2017, 06:43:13 pm »
Hello everyone. Sometimes i want to play chords or solos that required more key than 25 but i want Minibrute's effects too. Can i plug a cheap midi keyboard to my Minibrute without a DAW ? I mean just Minibrute and a keyboard. Is that possible ?

Absolutely.  Set your MIDI keyboard to the same MIDI channel as the MiniBrute and you're in business.  Connect a MIDI cable from the MIDI out of the controller keyboard to the MIDI in of the MiniBrute.  If you're not sure which channel the MiniBrute is on you can use the MiniBrute Brute Control software to check, or if you can't do that for some reason, once the two are connected via the MIDI cable, set the controller to MIDI channel 1 and play a note.  If the MiniBrute doesn't respond change the controller's channel to 2 and play a note.  Keep doing that until the MiniBrute responds and take note of which channel the MiniBrute is on (so you don't forget).

Go to your local instrument shop and have a play with what they have on display.  That way you can feel the difference, if any between the more popular brands.
I own a couple of Novation controllers which I like, but then I hear good stuff about the Arturia controllers too.   The thing to remember though about using an external controller with the MiniBrute is you still need to use the knobs and sliders on it, so good idea to mount the MiniBrute above the controller keyboard so it you can still reach it while playing.  Still look at getting a controller knobs and sliders so you can control other equipment that does have MIDI parameter control.
