Couldn’t it be implemented to use the CCs that are already mapped to the knobs? Perhaps even as a macro where it controls any given number of selected (pre-mapped in settings) CCs in a range-editable, invertable way. So to pick arbitrary example numbers, one column from bottom to top could send values of [the CC mapped to bit depth] from say 50-80 as well as values of [the CC mapped to cutoff] from 127 to 75.
Another idea would be to set up one or two X-Y areas with two of these CCs (again range editing/inverting would be desired)
I bought play with the naive idea that every midi capable device has full midi implementation, so it was a real bummer Last ≈ summer when this forum wasn’t even there, I recieved promising email answer that midi implementation is somewhere down the road, but, yeah. Had high hopes I could add a sparkle for my live guitar arrangements via a midi controller’s footswitches and Play. It also turned out it doesn’t even have its own midi channel for starters, so you can’t control knobs with midi expression pedals.
As for this thread, it was about the perform mode for midi sequencer, which, indeed, could be also nice to have, even if some of the perform features won’t be available (no «wish» for that, but I lost my faith in the concept).
I’m running into a problem where I set up a track with both audio and MIDI components, then go into perform mode, choose a red ‘Tune’ (transpose) pad to move to new harmonies, only to be reminded that the MIDI does not transpose along with the audio tracks.
Should this be wishlisted? Because it seems like a severe oversight.
I don’t know more than the sentence I quoted, but… you asked in this topic in March (first post), then Mitch said in August that this sounds like a good wish, and in November Mitch writes that “MIDI performance mode” is coming. I hope my “math” is correct.
I believe I said a lot of the effects cannot work via MIDI such as reverb and delay as they are audio processes but dont’ remember exactly. We discussed different options instead and what would work. We’ll get creative with MIDI Perform mode as it is in development but don’t expect reverb and delay to be there, it would be impossible!
I’m really really excited to see what this turns into. I don’t use Perform mode very often currently because it leaves the MIDI tracks out. Just having the Tune section work for MIDI would be a total game changer for me but the Re-Arrange and Repeat and whatever other treats the team comes up with will also be a ton of fun. Thanks for listening to us!
