Hi there,

the keys of my midi controller (Novation Impulse 25) aren't working in Bitwig 3.02. I checked with Midi-Ox, everything looks fine, Bitwig recognises the controller just fine, the volume slider does work, the used VST is displayed in the display of the Impulse25, but the keys remain dead. Anyone with a solution ? Thanks a lot!

Hi quantum4,

what do you mean exactly by "the keys remain dead"?

Are you talking about the notes on the white/black keyboard?

That means that when you press any key on the keyboard you do not see the yellow square in the device panel flashing?

Does this happens also with no VST loaded at all?

Does this happens also with the Bitwig own instruments, like piano sampler or phase4 synth?

Best regards,


PS. I own and use an Impulse 49... Have you tried to use the Generic controller instead of the Impulse one ?
