ability to send custom messages when switching parts
« on: March 02, 2021, 12:07:24 pm »
Hey there

I'm using the KSP with a Virus TI
It's awesome using it to drive multiple parts of the synth engine.

One thing that would really help, would be if I could assign a custom sysex command to be sent from the KSP when I switch parts, allowing me to switch the corresponding part to be in focus on the Virus.....

it'd be so intuitive, fun and practical for a feature

eg. switch to track 2, and the virus switches to "part 2"
so when I'm editing the midi sequence for my bassline, the controls on the synth are also editing that part.

It's so easy to get tied up in knots otherwise, easy to make mistakes and it slows you down switching interfaces on both units....

This would also be useful for other setups
eg. you can midi or keymap track selections in Ableton Live.
you switch to track 3 on the KSP, it can select the corresponding track for that software synth or sampler automagically.... bringing that UI to the foreground, ready to edit that sound to your delight.

I know this is a highly specific request, but please consider it!

failing that

if there's a sysex command that can switch the part of the KSP
Please let me know

maybe I can assign something else to switch parts on both units...
but a native solution, using the buttons already right there and above the keys -  would be far far superior experience!

Unfortunately, the KSP does not deal with sysex commands and you can't currently send program change messages to external synths.

I know it currently can't, but that's why I threw it in the "feature request" section :P

if there's any messages sent at all when switching parts... maybe I can make bomes patch to give me what I need...


Program changes would be sick, and a remote way to mute drum parts would be nice too...  so I could map drum mutes to a midi controller

Anything that can save you doing 8 button presses with 2 hands while you're gearing up to change sections in your performance is a winner really
