NI F1 controller...
Topic: NI F1 controller MIDI
But it seems the F1 does not send midi as other controllers I have tested, for example AKAI APC mini, without any problem.
I use MIDI-OX to monitor midi data from F1 but it does not produce any.
Is it something I need to do in order to use the F1 as 'simple midi controller' ?

A quick Google tells me the following:
The F1 should automatically enter MIDI mode when Traktor is not running. If it doesn't, then shift + browse will switch modes.
It's also mentioned in the F1 manual...

I beg on my knees, groovin that I am forgiven not finding this in the F1 manual. ;)

Maybe traktor is needed which I don't use or have.

I don't have to have controller editor running as when installed it adds some sort of driver/service to autostart.
As for the Shift + Browse, in the case of the S4 there's a knack to it, just after powering the unit, as the lights sweep on and don't hold on for too long.

The F1 works perfect in VDJ, but I would try to use it to send midi to control freestyler DMX.
When hooking the F1 up to midiox there is no midi sent. But I will try the shift + browse combo during startup and see.
