Title: External control over B3 V2 Preset Changes/Program Bank
Post by: 1asc on November 19, 2020, 02:12:40 pm
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a bit of a conundrum -- I'm running a setup with parallel instances of the B3 V2 vst, and want to be able to link preset/program changes between them. So far I've easily been able to do this with individual MIDI parameters themselves, but the MIDI parameter changes are only sent when changing manually -- not when a preset is changed, etc.

I've tried running through MaxMSP too to see if there's external access to the list of presets/programs and it always returns completely blank.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way (MIDI or otherwise) to control B3-V2/V collection synth preset changes externally, from a DAW or MaxPatch or the like?

Hi,

ProgramChange messages only work within Playlists in B3 V2. Playlests react on the Bank message and presets in the Playlist on the ProgramChange message.

One B3 can't send midi messages to another B3.
