I am doing my first steps in CTRLR, as I do have a need for some controls for my hardware. I created Device Panels in Cubase, so I thought, it should´nt be that hard…well…
I encountered a problem, which for me does not have any logical explanation.
When I insert the MIDI keyboard and have set the MIDI output port in CTRLR correctly, MIDI is been send (I can see a MIDI data LED on the synth flashing). On the other hand, inserting a slider to send at least CC (I set it correctly to CC) or a Sysex string (set to Sysex) doesn´t seem to work, the synth´s LED doesn´t indicate the reception of MIDI data..
I am using this version:

lua: Lua 5.1.4
Hope somebody can show me how progress.
Thanks in advance.
I had all sorts of weird crap happening with that latest “5.5.2” version of Ctrlr that all went away when I went back to the “5.4.16” version from the Downloads link. I highly recommend going back to that version, although it does seem to crash quite a bit. Save your work often!
Another tip is that most SysEx strings include a “device ID” byte that I’ve found to be very trial and error. Could be 0, could be 1, could be some other random value that’s buried in your synth’s MIDI menu. That would explain why you see the MIDI transmit but the synth didn’t receive it. The synth thinks the MIDI message is for another device so it ignores it.
