Multiple Program Change Transmissions

Just had a look at the example “ProgramChange to Multiple Ordered Events” included in the most recent Editor update, I think this could also be a good starting point for you to explore…

Hi, thanks for your suggestion.

What I would like to do, is to trigger a preprogrammed series of bank & program changes, based on something I send to the midihub, a program change, a CC, etc. And with this, be able to setup a number of pipelines, one for each “performance”, to setup all my machines automatically for each song/scene etc.

I have investigated the transformation, and yeah, I am sure I could hack something, I just need to find out how I can do with the bank messages preceding the actual program change message.

Ideally a “bank/program change” object would’ve been great, with a list of all midi channels, and then a field for “bank” and “program” for each channel, or something in that direction, with a “trigger” (map) to fire it off.

Aha, OK, I think I understand a bit more now.

I’m not sure I have the solution for you unfortunately!

But I wonder, if the message is coming through as some CC values for Bank Change then a value for PC, could you use the Filter on two separate instances of (for example), hardware input A? One to only allow PC data, one to only allow CC data. Then process and pass them on accordingly?

You could then combine them using Virtual Outputs and send them on, or even time the messages appropriately using a method like in the “Multiple Ordered Events” example above to send CC(Bank Change) first then PC.

I think you’re right in that whatever you come up with will be a bit of a workaround, maybe post in the “Feature Request” section asking about plans for Bank Change data, as I’ve found the project to be very responsive so far! Good luck.

Yes, in theory there’s probably some ways around it, but it will become messy when there’s a bunch of changes to do, with both bank and pc, and the transformations etc. to all of the destinations…

hehe!

You may use Transform pipes to produce both the bank select (which is just CC #0 (coarse value) and CC #32 (fine value), as I understand most synths don’t have >128 banks, so CC #0 only is used), and a program change value.

The ordering is controlled using the ‘mode’ argument, whether the transformed message is actually replaced, or a new message is prepended or appended to the data stream.

Could you give us some concrete example of what you want this to do, in terms of an input event, and the expected outputs?

Thanks!

I will have a look next time I have a moment to sit down with it, and get back to you.

Cheers!

Hi, I try to operate with mine but not sur of your explanation. I don’t find how to send a custom PC#, with the “Transform Pipe” we can transform a PC# into a PC# but impossible to choose wich PC#… I should miss something.
My final goal is to use a TC Electronic G-System with multiple devices and this product can only send a custom MIDI PC# map and associating MSB.
Finally I’d like to send a PC# from the G System to the midihub and change it so I could send 4 different PC# on 4 differents MIDI channels. It seems more harder than I thought :frowning:

You can use the rear button, long press.
The following example sends
: on MIDI Channel 1 - Program change 6 AND Bank 2 (CC0 value1)

got to Preferences (screen below)

edit: Notice where to Send out this Custom MIDI message;-)

The Transform pipe can be used for sending preconfigured program change messages - make sure to use >= 1.11.3 editor version, and pick ‘Arg1’ in the Data Source 1, and enter the program number into the Arg1 property.

Let us know the input and the desired outputs, and we’ll help you come up with the preset for it. :slight_smile:

Thank you for that tip, but I need to have a complete MIDI Map so I can have a new preset for each preset of the G System. This tip is very limited for that.

All good @FrogT, sometimes it’s hard with few words to know the use case someone is idealizing; and I “over-cooked” the solution this time…

Okay I just updated the editor and the firmware to see the new transform Pipe, but I think I don’t use it as I should…
Here’s my configuration on my transform pipe.

  • First I take my signal in the MIDI A port
  • Then this screen capture

  • Then go to the MIDI port D where my Nemesis Delay is plugged.
    Then I realise that it take whatever MIDI PC# and apply the new one but it’s not a MIDI map. I need an output Midi Channel router, but don’t find it, do I miss it??

Yes, thanks for your help anyway!

I just need the same control as with my OneCOntrol CrocEye, when mapping a MIDI message to the input of my MidiHub, I want to transform it in what I need.
For exemple :
For the preset 00-1 of my G System, there is a MIDI PC# sent on channel 1.
I want it to become a PC#00, CC#00 on the MIDI Channel 3
Then for the preset 00-2 of my G system, I want a PC#10, CC#107 value 40 on the MIDI channel 1

Am I clear? Thanks for the help you could give me.

EDIT : I don’t really need to send on different MIDI channels by the way, because I can use the 4 outputs, each one for one device to control. But I need to change my input message to transform it so I can control one or 4 or no device on my ouputs… I still look for my good configuration :roll_eyes:

EDIT 2 (because I’m new and can’t reply for the time)
Yes that’s a solution, but my MIDI message is not the one I need, It’s like the G-system always send his own map and we can’t go through.

Just use CH Remap no? (remap ch1 to ch3)

So, I think I don’t understand the G-system MIDI output. I Tried to see the MIDI activity with Pocket MIDI and MIDIox, but nothing happen. I see the led of the midihub blinking when I change preset on my G System (with MIDI parameter on “On”, or “OnMap”) but can’t see nothing on the MIDI monitors… I think I’m a newbie with this protocole sometimes :sweat_smile:

Did you send the MIDI activity to one of the USB outputs?

Sure! I did it, so I’m frustrated for now

What’s your current state with all of this? :slight_smile: I use MIDI-OX for monitoring the data, so I can help you make it work.

Hi, I did not spend more time on it since last week, thanks for your help, I’ll take a new look next week!
