Switching between modules via program change

Postby patience1312 » Wed May 02, 2012 9:01 am


I tried to figure this out by searching through the forum, but I can't find a solution for this:

My setup is as following:

Akai Miniak
Boss FC-50 - sending program changes
Forte - Demo mode

How can I switch through my modules (Absynth, Omnisphere or Battery) by sending program changes via my Midi-Foot-Controller?
I tried to up the following in the Control Surface Definition Editor:

Module 1 Mute Toggle from Midi Controller event, on channel1, any CC#, Value=1(2,3,4)

Is this the wrong way or did I forget something?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Eric,

Program changes are not CC's! You must send CC's to switch the mute status using the CS interface. If you can't send CC's, then you can make scenes for each enabled instrument then change scenes with PC's.

Life would be much easier if I had the source code.
