I have a Nektar Impact LX61+ and am trying to use it as a generic midi control surface. I get all basic functions like faders, potis and buttons to work, but not the transport control buttons. I tried to manually assign them, but pressing the buttons afterwards doesn’t do anything. Does anybody know how to get that to work? I’m using Ardour 6.2.0 on Arch Linux.
There is an existing binding map for at least one Nektar surface, which Nektar provided themselves. However for it to work correctly, it apparently necessary to load a sysex file into the device first.
That may be the issue here too. I don’t have any Nektar devices to test with.
Have a look at this thread
