Comments for Knobroom Lightroom MIDI plugin for OS X Wed, 15 Jul 2015 22:13:53 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Jarno Heikkinen Wed, 15 Jul 2015 22:13:53 +0000 It is only compatible with Mac OS X. You seem to be running on Windows, which is not supported by this plugin.

Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Benjamin Wed, 15 Jul 2015 21:50:24 +0000 Is this plugin supposed to support Lightroom CC 2015 (v6.1) yet? If not, is this something I can hope for any time soon?

I’ve extracted the latest Knobroom plugin to C:, open the Lightroom Plug-in Manager, choose Add, choose the knobroom.lrplugin folder in C:, but the MIDI Mapping and other plugin-specific settings areas never show up. I’ve disabled end re-enabled the plugin, reinstalled the plugin, tried different folder paths, ensured I have full control of the plugin folder, and tried this setup on two different computers (home and work, both legitimately licensed without any other issues).

Here’s what I’m seeing:

Thanks very much.

Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Emilio Rodriguez Wed, 15 Jul 2015 01:11:11 +0000 Hey,

Great plug-in, I was looking for this exact one, and tried it out with a Korg NanoKontrol 2 and the Develop features worked out perfectly, but some of my top used controls didn’t. The essentials like Exposition, Contrast, Vignetting, and even Rotation are already configured, but the Navigations wont work, when I press Previous and Next it jumps 2 photos, instead of one. Also I was looking to set on my tablet the Stars for rating (already on the keyboard 1 through 5) and didn’t find them. Also, is it possible to set a command for Virtual Copy. We’re using the plug in on Lightroom 5, as you said it worked on this version too.

Thank you for enabling the software.

Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Stormbringer Sat, 11 Jul 2015 21:04:30 +0000 Hello Jarno, I just bought a Nocturn for your software, and it looks very good! There’s a pretty good tutorial on Youtube in German (, I’m not sure if it has been posted here already.

He programmes the Nocturn with its software (AutoMap) by “learning”, and I guess it’s just recognising the commands of Knobroom. Things that are not in Nocturn (like straighten or the parameters of the gradient/radial/brush filter) it doesn’t understand. That’s a pity… 🙁

Also, Automap has “Qwerty assign”, and I hoped it would understand key strokes, but it doesn’t. I hoped to assign buttons to Zoom (“Z”), Original (“”), Reject (“X”), etc. There’s no way to do that (yet)?

Anyway, many thanks for your trouble!

Comment on Download by Jarno Heikkinen Sat, 11 Jul 2015 13:11:24 +0000 Unfortunately, the current architecture does not allow the plugin to communicate when there are any UI dialogs shown, show currently it is not even possible to create learning functions.

In future, this might change with LR6’s new socket support, but I’m still limited by the poor UI features of the Lightroom SDK. I don’t know how feasibile it is to create better configuration tool, since it takes awful hacks to create anything dynamic with LR UI components.

The .json file can contain channel numbers, but the current UI is more limited.

Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Jarno Heikkinen Sat, 11 Jul 2015 13:06:35 +0000 Judging from the screenshot, you are running on Windows. Plugin only supports OS X, Windows support was dropped out couple of years ago.

Forward looking statements: apparently there is new socket support coming in LR6 SDK (yet unreleased), which could help me writing support for Windows version in future.

I cannot see settings of this plugin. Any ideas? I’m on LR CC

Comment on Lightroom 6 with MIDI by Glenn Venghaus Thu, 09 Jul 2015 19:12:35 +0000 Hi Jarno,

Amazing stuff. Just in the process of polishing my ipad / lemur app setup to talk via your plugin to lightroom and found 1 bug and one bug or feature.
If the processing mode is 2010, the mapping of shadows points to the highlights fader instead of the blacks fader. So both highlight recovery and shadows point to the same fader and there is no way to control the blacks fader.
Found no way to put faders that have a positive and negative value (like exposure -100 to + 100 , exactly at zero . Only at -1 or +1.

1st one is more serious as now 1 fader can not be controlled.

p.s. Going to put some money your way as super great tool !!!

thanks and let me know if you have a solution for above.


Comment on Download by Matthew Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:49:27 +0000 Some sort of midi learn function would make this incredibly easy compared to its current state. I’d love to join a mailing list for updates as you release new versions.

My Maschine ( outputs midi on channels 1-16, but Knobroom doesn’t allow me to switch away from ch0 in the mapping pane of the plugin settings. Do you have a workaround for this?

Also! It would be great if your ‘note’ dropdown could show chromatic notes like G#-1, A-1, A#1, B-1, C0, C#0, D0, D#0, etc. Maybe with a check box to switch between straight midi (1-127) and chromatic notes?

Wow, thats a great gift… the second after the GPU support in lightroom. Thank you for your great plugin.
