Behringer CMD Studio2A for VFO A or B freq control

Postby N4XD » Sun Jan 03, 2021 6:16 pm

Anyone gotten one of these to work assigning the large wheels to VFO A or B for frequency changes? I've tried and it doesn't work correctly.

All the other controls, except the pitch blend controls, work fine.

My other midi controller, the DJ Control Compact, works great.

Thanks

Hi Ron,

I'm using the CMD 2A and love it! I do indeed have VFO A and B assigned to the 2 wheels. I'll check the 'settings' in the midi panel.

Gary, thanks. Appreciate the reply. Which software are you using, Thetis or PowerSDR? I'm using Thetis which may be the issue.

Other information

When running the diagnostic capability under midi setup the right large wheel returns data 41 when clockwise and 3F when ccw. Wonder if yours does the same.

Thanks

UPDATE: Issue fixed

Turns out you must load the driver (found here: https://archive.org/details/cmdstudio2aDriver)

I initially thought the driver was only to have the Behringer Studio2A be recognized as a sound card but apparently that isn't the case.

After loading the driver the wheels now act as they should.
