Oops.. I may have spoken too soon. I think I had something set wonky. If I get it working I'll follow up just in case anyone else wants to try this in the future.
Seems like button group subcontrols act as send-on-only or not based on ONE of their button group supers (so they cannot be both send-on-only and NOT send on only)... however your investigation might give you other insights. Thanks.
Did this turn out to be impossible? Thanks!
Sorry for the delay, I wasn't able to figure out a way to do it without an off message being sent and haven't had time to do further experimentation so I'm still manually shutting off all of the buttons for now.
Hmmm... alright, I'll need to think about this. It's a really odd one-off request, but perhaps there's some utility in providing a page OFF button so that you can change all parameters without sending. Or easier than that would be a ALL MIDI OFF button so you can twiddle and nothing goes out.
