[Feature Request] ability to switch presets by MIDI Program Change

Hello, I’m totally diggin’ your effects and the presets library gives me often inspiration. I often havin’ fun to combine and switch them manually with my mouse.
So I’d like to be able to use some Program Changes (or other means) to allow me to change presets on the fly from a MIDI controller and/or from a midi track in my DAW.

Hi @_ceoneezm and welcome to our Sound Explorers community!

I’m not sure this is actually possible as there are just so many presets in Arturia virtual synths and effects iirc because of the limitations of midi. Iirc there can only be 128 locations per bank with a limit of potentially 128 banks owing to midi being 8 bit, but technically 7bit, again this is iirc.
This might be possible with midi 2.0, but I am not too familiar with midi 2.0 and Arturia doesn’t currently make any midi 2.0 software.

I’ll log as a feature Request though as you never know!

If we’re talking about a specific effect’s presets, then sure, this is possible by assigning our midi controls to dedicated commands for preset browsing. Here’s a screenshot for such assignment in the remote editor of Cubase, for the Brigade delay. Again, this applies only if we’re talking about presets inside a single FX’s instance.

For the instruments in V Collection, AFAIK there is such system included in each instrument.
I have not checked tor FX Collection but I see no reason it couldn’t be implemented if not ?
