I'm finally diving into setting up my Akai MPK88 to have some actual, useful functionality with all the knobs, faders and so on. Or at least I have decided to do so.

But what are some common functionalities that one would need?

I have a lot of knobs, faders and so on, and just to quote the AKAI website: "Control up to 72 software parameters with 24 assignable Q-Link knobs, buttons, and faders"

I don't use the MPC pads, so I think I'm gonna set them up to change between patches in Omnisphere in the LIVE-MULTI part of that.

But what parameters would I need control of and also have use of to control with the knobs and faders?

Shoot me all your suggestions and knowledge on this smile.gif

First thing that came to my mind would be something like a console channel strip (like waves SSL). Since its meant to be inserted on all channels a dedicated controller for its functions would make sense and get a lot of use.

For example when setting up an eq, its really cool to have one hand on increase/decrease and other for Q.
