Note On/Off setup

Channel

Select the Midi channel that should be used. When you change Midi channel for one button, the change affect that button only but the new Midi channel selected will be the default channel for all new buttons that will be created from that point on (for all kind of commands).

Please note that the Midi channels are numbered 1-16 (that is normal for humans) but the Midi protocol uses 0-15 (that is normal for computers). If your daw/device uses 0-15 numbering, please subtract 1 from the channel in the dropdown list.

Key

Select the key that should be triggered.

Velocity

Set the velocity for the key. The same velocity is used in both Note On and Note Off commands.
For an explicit "Note Off" command, set velocity = 0.

Button type

Select how the button should interact with the device/daw:

  • A Push Button will always send a "Note On" when it is pressed.
  • A Toggle Button alternates between "Note On" and "Note Off" when it is pressed.
  • A Hold Button will send a "Note On" when it is pressed and a "Note Off" when the button is released.

Midi Out port

Select the Midi port that should be used. If available, the default port "StreamDeck2Daw" is selected when you create a button but you can select any other port if required. When you change Midi port for one button, the change affect that button only but the new Midi port selected will be the default port for all new buttons that will be created from that point on (for all kind of commands).

Icon

Initially, the same icons are set for all midi actions. You can of course chose whatever icons you like, but a set of Midi related icons are bundled with the plugin (please see the Installation section for details).
