I can connect 2 Midi controllers on vmix and use both with shortcuts and activators? I want connect the APC MK2 as main controller and the Behringer CMD PL-1 as replay controller.

I use Bomes MIDI translator to map the MIDI, you can attach multiple MIDI devices and route them to a virtual input, so you could easily add more than one to feed the MIDI (just select one for the Bomes virtual inputs as your MIDI source)

In my case, I use it so I can send MIDI to VMix and to the RTPMidid network to control other devices/computers on the network.
You can also add complex MIDI scripting, filtering and application events with it. Its a great application.

I am only using shortcuts at the moment, but I have three xKeys in my setup (an XK128 and XK124 T-bar for the tech director and an xKeys 12 key shuttle for replay) and everything works fine.

I have taken the precaution of putting each unit on a separate Midi channel so I can fir more controllers in (we are integrating a Behringer BCF2000 and the vMix Audio Pro Mixer app for our sound operator).

So far (two pre-season soccer games), everything has worked like clockwork.

I know this is a very old topic but i'm actually stuck with this same problem

I bought a Akai APC mini to use by side of my Akai APC 40 Mk2
I have Win10 x64, I tried midi-ox and to have vMix see the I had to add LoopBe1 as virtual midi output (Midi-Yoke doesn't work on x64)
I've been able to remap the channel but LoopBe1 keeps muting itself without let me know what's wrong
Moreover I haven't been able to use activators since it keeps sending tha activation signal to the APC 40 Mk2 instead of the APC mini

Does anyone have some idea about how to make it work out? dark_ata are you still using it?

I'm quite sure Bome MIDI translator will work out but spending 59€ over 75€ of the controller it's annoning

Thanks dark_ata !!!

I finally understood my mistake in trying to make it work!
I have 1 APC40 MKII and 1 APC Mini and I didn't realized at first that I had to remap both controllers.
I was keeping the APC40 MKII without any mapping so this was interfering with the other controller producing a weird behaviour that was puzzling me.

Since the APC40 MKII works on channels 1 to 9 this is what I did:
  • On APC40 MKII just remapped channel 1 on channel 11 (2 to 9 are not overlapping)
  • On APC Mini remapped channel 1 to channel 10 (the first free channel)
  • Added some filters here and there to prevent cross talking

So now everything works like a charm!

Many thanks and if you ever pass by Rimini in Italy you can claim for a free beer!
