Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I just bought an AKAI MPK mini. Will I be able to use it with the FL Studio or should I return it and get a different one?

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

i want to say that image-line must support the Arturia Keylab Midi Keyboards in FL Studio in my eyes because that are great Midi Keyboards. I have a Arturia Keylab 49 MKII and i want to map it with some hardware and its too difficult without some helps to make it alone

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Will the midi commander work with FLoops? I'd like to queue drum loop samples for live performance.
Does anyone recommend a midi footswitch for page-turning beats/parts in performance mode?

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Just bought an Arturia Minilab mkII, seems to work well after following findable articles on this forum; but the relative knobs, oh gosh!, the ones marked 1 and 9, when moved the fl plugins stay in place...(the Analog Lab 4 vst that came with the keyboard works fine with these relative knobs :shock: ).
I am new to music producing, after 5h research, it seems relative knobs in the Arturia, send two messages a relative and a contextual reference, that are incompatible in protocol with something.

I have read several posts that hint me to install two extra software packages, that need to map midi messages and ignore the contextual, that need to be started in a certain order to be made to work. And I rather do not get into that.

I am new on producing my own music, and i was keen to be lured by youtubers onto my decision to buy this MIDI controller, it did not cross my mind that there would be MIDI protocols that cause incompatibility on relative knobs(i found about them later).

Thank you for offering to support these devices

Same, I just bought an Akai MPK Mini as well. Would love to have it in controller types vs. selecting generic. Thanks!

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I've been looking a lot into MIDI keyboards recently. After a few months of research and comparison I was presented with a time crunch, and ultimately settled on a Nektar Panorama P4, as it seemed to be the most modern keyboard available with native integration. However, there were a list of other, more modern keyboards I would've loved to get if they were supported.

The most popular, modern, and well-established:

1. Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S Series
2. Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol A Series
3. Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol M32
4. Akai Professional MPK2 Series
5. Akai Professional Advance Series
6. Arturia KeyLab Series
7. Arturia KeyStep Controller & Sequencer
8. Arturia MiniLab MkII 25 Slim-Key Controller
9. Novation SL MkIII Series
10. M-Audio Code Series
11. Alesis V Series
12. Alesis VI Series

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Adding full support for the Novation SL MK3 would be totally amazing. In my eyes, it's one of the best MIDI controllers out there.

Hope you can add support soon!

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Akai MPK249.

Also, it would be great if some sort of documentation was released about your MIDI Control scripts to allow community created/custom scripts.

For example, in Ableton, I made a custom script for the Push 2 User mode that behaves exactly the way I want it to. Rather than creating all these scripts yourself, perhaps releasing the tools/docs for others to create their own would be prudent?

Looking at one of the control scripts included I see:

<link>
<ctrlparam>8</ctrlparam>
<window><![CDATA[mixer]]></window>
<windowparam>549461968</windowparam>
<windowid>0</windowid>
<channel>0</channel>
</link>



Most of this is clear to me except for the windowparam field. I assume that in theory I could create my own script following this as a sort of template.

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I was given a Novation Impulse 49 along with FL Studio as a gift but after many months of fruitless attempts to find or create a map I've given up. It would be great to use the features of this keyboard with my all-time favourite DAW (yes it's compatible with Ableton but I don't understand that DAW at all).

Also, any tips if I want to work on a project with someone who uses a non-compatible DAW? Logic Pro X.

Thanks <3

I bought a Panorama T4 and it doesnt work well with the P4 settings. Would love to control FL with it. I also have a Maschine MK3 on the way. Do you have support for that yet?

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Thinking very seriously about an Akai Force to function as the master sequencer, sampler, mixer, effects, and clock for my hardware setup. The more seamlessly that can be integrated with FL Studio, the better. Currently, it can export ALS files for ableton, but I know you guys have the Fire, so my hope is you have a good enough relationship with Akai to make .flp export possible. Exploded stems is fine for now, but the big plus for me would be if this could also replace my Launchpad for launching live clips in FL studio to get around the memory limitations of the Force without crawling to Ableton.

I have used my MPK mini (first gen) as generic controller for years. Totally linkable (device has editor to customize too)

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I've just put in an order for the Novation 49SL MkIII MIDI Controller keyboard, but after hunting extensively for DAW compatibility online I realise it was probably a mistake to do so, at least as far as FL Studio is concerned! It seems that I won't be able to do anything with this keyboard other than use it as a generic controller within FL Studio 20. Does that mean that the faders, knobs, pads etc will not function at all within FL Studio, or is there some kind of workaround for it? I've looked at the list of compatible controllers within FL Studio and tbh many of them are fairly ancient. So basically I'm asking for Image Line to support the Novation SL MkIII's and possibly some of the more recent and popular controller keyboards, in the long run it will keep FL Studio users happy and help the DAW continue to thrive in a competitive market! I've enjoyed using FL Studio since 2016, it's UI is one of the best and most user friendly out there, but if it is going to have compatibility issues with the latest controllers or hardware I wish to use, I might have to consider switching DAW's. :roll:

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

hello I am still new to FL studio I purchased the Arturia MK2 midi and I have quite a bit of trouble because I have to manually input the nobs with everything it can sometimes be difficult to find advice on how to get every nob to be programmed and used for one synth instead of individually programming one. using it with the FL being new doesn't really help my situation either lol. It would be nice to see if this MIDI becomes more user friendly throughout time so the nobs don't have to be manually inputed. Its all part of the process though really glad I have todo all this research it a "the more you know situation". Anyway see you around :)

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

just got a hold of a "Alesis master Control"(mixer/interface) I know its 10 years old but i'd like to be able to use it without manually mapping the faders.
Somewhat working with this preset
Choose PRESET 10 :applesoundtrack, also I had mackie universal controller selected in the midi settings as per the alesis manual.
THis works good enough but missing 1 button/function PAN/SEND/LEVEL. is there a way to manually assign/fix that one missing button?

Extra support for the Novation Launchkey Mini MK3 would be amazing. The MK2 looked like it was great with FL studio but the MK3 is not quite the same without more support.

Do you have the latest HUI firmware update? There is a sysex file on the official Novation website for this. Enables control of a lot of major features using the Mackie control setting.

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I use an AKAI Professional MPK Mini MIDI keyboard (all I can afford at the moment). No trouble using knobs, pads or the joystick, but I don't know how to use the Program Change and CC controls & the arpeggiator section with FL Studio.

But then, it's not listed (hence my posting here) and I don't know of any item on the list that'll give me similar functionality.

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

Komplete Kontrol S49.

I've owned it for a year, and since we're in quarantine I finally "figured it out."

But first, I spent 2 days trying to switch to Maschine 2 software... That was a fail. FL is way better for pro's. Then I spent a day trying to see why the Maschine hardware has a template in FL already and my keyboard doesn't. The only workaround was buying this Bome midi editor, and spent a whole day setting that up.

Man, I'm never going to get that time back smh.
(I know y'all didn't ask for the backstory, but I'd love to see a template)
I think the reason it doesn't already have a template is because way fewer of the buttons on the keyboard trigger MIDI notes (which is essential for FL Studio (I hear this is an 'old' way to make software.) Again, I'm not complaining, just sayin', y'all got the sauce, smh)

Re: Is your controller not listed/supported ?

I just picked up an Arturia Keylab 49 (non essentials version). Really hoping Image Line can create a native map for this in FL studio. I am new to music production and learning to set up and map this midi controller is quite overwhelming. Please Please!! Thank you! :)
