Just tried again and it works fine for me. Did you use a toggle button, which sends 127 on first and 0 on second press? You also need to select in the "Knob mode" to "Absolute (Toggle button".

I stand corrected, I didn't check the Knob mode with Absolute Toggle it works as expected. Thanks a lot...

I just adapted my nanoKontrol with Flexi and wondered about some missing targets.
I could not find a way to set the volume of a fx track,
There is a function to toggle between the instrument/audio and fx track bank.
I did not find it, looked through all menus. And I doubt it would be useful, because if I understand that correctly, it would toggle the function of my already assigned faders. But I want to use a different knob for that. The nanoKontrol has 9 Faders and 9 knobs, I don't want double assignments at all.
Is there a restriction from the API which prevents a direct assignment to the FX track controls? In the Master menu would be enough space to put it in if possible...

Hi Jürgen,
first of all: thank you for this great extension! I really love it.
Now, being a musician (and not a programmer) I got a feature request that could ease my performing:
I would love to use a foot pedal attached to the push2 that would just act as if I would press the shift-key on the push, so I can select new scenes while playing my keyboard with my other hand.
As far as I understand, the foot pedals are not yet assigned to anything.
I guess this would be a 5 minutes project for someone who knows the code.
Thanks
Achim

It is the first entry in the Track menu: "Track: Toggle Trackbank".

The first footswitch is fixed to send Sustain. The 2nd can be assigned to different functions in the settings: Workflow -> Footswitch 2.
I do not understand how simulating Shift would help you launch scenes.

I tried that, It seams to select and toggle that selection, which would be completely useless. After that toggle I would have to move a different control which then acts on the selection...
I just want to turn my knob and it should move the fader!
My suggestion: put direct controls (set fx1 volume...set fx8 volume) into the master section. There is space and I at least consider those Fx returns as part of the master section... (Or rename the Maste section in “Master & FX”...)
I know the API can do it, at least with Javascript I was able to address the returns directly...

I do not understand how simulating Shift would help you launch scenes.
Basically I am missing the <page left> <page right> <page up> and <page down> button in session mode with wich I could move 8 steps to left, right, up or down with pressing only ONE button ONE time.
My session has 16 tracks and is organized in fields of 16 x 8 in wich all clips can be combined in any way and accompany my life playing. I want to be able to switch to the next musical part (i.e. the following 16x8 field) as well as to the other 8 tracks (to start one of those) while still playing a line on my keyboard.
So far I can do that by using 2 hands: one has to press and hold <shift> while the other can select the wanted "page".

On the other hand the buttoms <page left>, <page right>, <octave up> and <octave down> are not used in session mode. If I could use those in session mode to navigate around in big steps of 8 would be fantascitc, too.

Will this be available for Reaper as well? Would love to test it with my Push 2.

If you mean the User mode, I think the Reaper API does not support it. Next Reaper version takes a bit longer (lots of changes).
