[Solved]: Arturia Buchla Easel MIDI


I’ve been trying to map the Thunder overlay to Arturia’s Buchla Easel via MIDI learn, and haven’t been having any luck: when MIDI learn is activated in the Easel, tapping on one of the pads on the Thunder to assign the parameter to the pad doesn’t produce any result. I tried all of the presets 1-9 but haven’t yet succeeded in controlling anything on the Easel via the Morph/Thunder. This is disappointing, since the demo videos show Thunder controlling the Buchla Easel in several places.

Controlling the Buchla Easel was my main reason for purchasing the Morph and Thunder overlay in the first place. Is there any more detailed info about configuring it as a MIDI controller for the Easel with MIDI learn? The info in the manual is scant, and there surprisingly doesn’t appear to be any discussion of it in the Community forum.

No worries - this is all possible.
First - are you using the Easel V as a standalone or as a plug in with a DAW?
If plug-in, which daw?
The other issue is that MIDI learn is challenging with controllers that send multiple midi parameters per touch - the software hasn’t caught up to these awesome ideas yet!
I can detail that later, but first let me know the answers to the above questions.

Here’s a quick and basic tutorial video on how to map the Sensel Buchla Thunder Overlay to the Buchla Easel V using MIDI learn:

Here’s a quick example of mapping the X-axis of the hex pad:

Thanks for getting back to me - I have the standalone version of Arturia’s Buchla Easel, so am not using a DAW.

Great, then those videos should be immediately applicable.
