I'm about to order a new midi keyboard, i'm an experienced player but i've never tried midi before. the keyboard has 8 drum pad buttons, 4 assignable buttons, a pitch wheel, mod wheel, and 4 assignable knobs. What I want to be able to do is basically use midi to have unlimited sounds and some cool customization. I want to use one knob for volume, then the rest for bass treble and middle. I would like to use the buttons for a quick: record stop playback and reset function, and maybe switch 2 of the drumpad buttons to a cc to make them switch sounds. then maybe use 2 more drumpads, and each one would apply a different affect or distortion. then use the remaining 4 as normal drumpads.
is this possible?
how would i go about doing this?
has anyone done something similiar?
and finally, is any of this never been done before?
