Default Problem with surround pan controller

I've been searching the forum for two days looking for an answer to this and I've found nothing, so it's finally time to post.

I need help setting up a surround pan controller. I recently purchased a JL Cooper Axos panner, and it's working with Reaper, which is great! But I have one issue:

The front/back panning is inverted. When I move the joystick up, the source moves to the rear, and vice versa. Maddening.

I've set it up using the MIDI Learn > FX Parameter window, in Absolute mode. The Relative modes produce very intermittent/unpredictable results, with the source jumping all around. I basically need Absolute mode but inverted only for this particular parameter (In Y).

Is there a way to invert this behavior somewhere within Reaper? I don't think I can alter the data coming out of the Axos, so I need to fix how this data is interpreted by Reaper.

Thanks!

Figured it out. Kind of a messy fix, and would be much simpler if there was an Absolute Inverted option when linking a parameter to a control. But it works. I'll post details if anyone is interested.

Please do. I'm certain to run in to this problem at some point.

Hi there,

I am interesting to know if Axos is a good surround panner solution into Reaper, so finally how does it run? Is it stable? I would be interested to know how you solved your problem. Thanx.

I am interested in the solution as well. Also what panning plugin(s) you use?
