How To Setup Midi Settings Inside Of BEYOND Software


Beyond has the ability to communicate using
Midi, this could be just midi notes to trigger events cues or scripts or to connect midi
type controllers like the Akai APC40 MK2 to control many things inside of beyond and operate
a live show in a continent way. Before we set things up inside beyond be sure
to install the driver of the device you are using, some devices can use windows included
drivers like the APC 40 MK2. In this case all you need to do is plug the
device into your PC and turn it on, windows should install the driver automatically. Once you have done that, you can open beyond. Once beyond has opened, go to settings>Midi>
Device Settings Here is where we set up our devices for input
and output. Under device one, we will select our connected
APC 40 MK2 for input and output. Under Device two, we will select our TC4000
device for midi timecode. Once you have assigned your midi devices to
device numbers in beyond, we can configure the APC 40, click configure,
Devices like the APC 40 MK2 already have a map we have provided, click open and load
the midi profile that corresponds to your device. You can edit different areas of the map by
going to something like the main grid and clicking configure. While we don’t want to get to in depth here,
the basic way this works is on the left we have the triggerable events in beyond, maybe
sliders, cue cells or extra buttons. And on the right you have the midi triggers
assigned to that parameter To edit, click on one of the parameters, and
click “Learn 1 + 2” and click the button on your midi controller you want to be assigned
to that parameter, beyond will listen and learn which button that is and assign that
data to that parameter. This can be done for each areas of midi configuration. Once we are happy, we can click OK which will
save what you edited to the default file, or you can also save here to create your own
map file. As for your TC4000, we want to set this up
for timecode, Once it is in Device two for input and output
we can press OK Then we will go to settings>Configuration>
Timecode input where we can enable Midi Timecode. Then we can go to Timecode out, and enable
Midi timecode on device two, which is where our TC4000 is assigned. And below we can set the Timecode framerate
we would like for output. Press OK
And your TC4000 will now be able to read and write LTC by converting Midi timecode into
a linear timecode audio stream, or the other way around. Once this is complete, you can use your APC40
to control your live show in Grid, or use your TC4000 to read or write timecode from
your timeline. All done using midi devices in your midi settings. Thanks for watching this quick hints video
