To make Palette a MIDI device, switch to a MIDI profile. Each MIDI profile can be assigned to a channel. MIDI buttons can be notes, dials can be notes (when pressed) and/or continuous controllers (when turned), and sliders can be continuous controllers.
Selecting a MIDI channel
Each MIDI profile represents a channel. If you want to change the channel, click on the core module to access the Core Settings. Click on the gray box under MIDI Channel to open a drop-down menu. Select the desired channel for the MIDI profile.
Selecting MIDI functions
Each module has a MIDI message type assigned to them by default. You can click on a module to change the default message type.
For dials, the note and octave correspond with the dial press action while the dial turn acts as a continuous controller.
You can also assign keyboard shortcuts through Keyboard mode. In MIDI profiles, keyboard shortcuts have the unique ability to work with any application.
Using multiple channels
To use multiple different channels, create MIDI profiles and switch between them with a Palette Profile Switching button.
- MIDI Mode - MMC Incompatibility
When MMC is enabled in your DAW, you may notice interruptions in Palette's MIDI signal. Please refer to your DAW's documentation for instructions to disable MMC. Here are instructions for Apple Logic Pro X and Steinberg Cubase:

- Logic Pro X - Button MIDI Mapping
If you are trying to map a Palette button to a MIDI note for Logic Pro you may experience up to a 5-second delay.
The solution for this is to quickly press and release the button when mapping. If you hold the button pressed for too long when mapping it initially it will be unable to capture the button "release" event resulting in a 5-second timeout when sending the note data.
