MIDI Target Manufacturer(s):
Hi. I’ve been using MIDI Designer Pro for forever. I like the possibilities it has for live performance use and mostly create simple controls that are easily MIDI-learned in Ableton LIVE. For instance turning a distortion pedal on in guitar rig, controlling track volume levels in LIVE, turning tracks on and off, etc. I have never properly learned though how to do seemingly easy stuff like create a button to change presets in Guitar Rig’s VST...
How would I accomplish this without extensive workarounds like creating on/off buttons that turn presents on and off? I just want to make two buttons, next and previous, that would control those literal buttons in Guitar Rig. Would I make what I typically make control change buttons (ex: channel 13 cc 52) to maybe bank change or program changes? I have no idea what these do. I’ve tried and can’t get them to interact with anything. I am hoping I missed something simple.
Also I am creating a MIDI controller for a guitar with actual buttons and potentiometers with Arduino. I’m using a esp32 board for the WiFi and the AppleMIDI library. I want to make any number of controls that can easily midi learn in LIVE. I’m thinking I’ll just decide on a number of controls, then hard code channel and cc values to each but would there be any easier or more flexible way to use MIDI Designer Pro to handle the coding?
