Default MIDI Control Strangeness

I'm trying to map some actions to CC 21-23 and they don't seem to work.

More precisely:
I mapped CC0-7 to track volume - works perfectly
CC16-23 to track pan - CC16-20 work, but with CC21-23 the pan knob isn't turning.
The CC-s are mapped to actions though...
Also they work when I assign them to VST knobs.

Can somebody verify or is it just something that happens only in my computer?

Most likely there is a conflict, meaning that CC21-23 is already being used somewhere. You should be able to edit the knob your working with and just change the channel number to 24 instead of 23 or any other channel number not being used.

Hope this helps,

I could use CC24, but that would mean that the assignments will not be consecutive on my MIDI controller.

How to find out what the conflicting assignments are (where CC21-23 are used) and remove them?

I have been bitten by that before. Most probably you learned those CC to either a track control knob or an envelope. The mean thing about it is that there is no easy way to find out which parameter on which track you have assigned to which MIDI CC . It is further complicated by the "selected track only" and "only when plugin has focus" settings, because that means you can't just wiggle your controller and hope to see something moving.

I'm afraid you will have to go through your plugins one by one, click the "Param" button and look under "FX parameter list" -> "Learn". Learned parameters have a dot prefixed. But you can still not see which CC is assigned, you can only see that in the actual learn dialogs.

This is one of the biggest PITA parts of Reaper. Since I was terribly burned by that I always use channel 16 and 15 exclusively for plugin learn and channel 14/13 for action assignment.

This is why I have never bothered to set up one of my controllers to "do" VSTs.

Strictly mixer and transport.
If OSC ever comes up with an easy way to interface with plugs, I will be first in line.
But till then I am happy to use a mouse - don't generally have to tweak VSTs a lot once I have them set up in a track, anyway

Hmmm, but I tried to assign the controls in a new project that does not have any plugins in it.

Does this mean that these CC-s are remembered from another project?

Found the culprit - I had made and forgotten some assignments in the S&M LiveConfig extension.

Thanks for listening!
