Ribbons

Ribbons

Ribbons are touch controls whose MIDI output you can customise (see Settings Screen). Possibilities include CC#, pitchbend, channel and polyphonic aftertouch…

The Ribbons are revealed via dragging the bottom left and right handles. Once open, simply touch or drag within the control to change it’s value.

There are three types of Ribbon settings:

  • Unipolar: The most basic. Like a fader on a mixing desk or the typical mod wheel on a MIDI keyboard. Maintains the last value triggered
  • Unipolar, Auto-Zero: Like Unipolar but when touch is removed, the value resets to 0
  • Bipolar: Like a pitchbend wheel on a MIDI keyboard, this control returns to the middle position whenever touch is removed
