so after about a week or so of tweaking, I think I have most of my setups and songs the way I want them - at least the song names and sections. My ultimate goal is to have Bandhelper on my iPad send program changes to GP to queue up the right song. I tested that and it works great. Now I just need to do it with 60 or so songs. So here are my questions -
Is there a bulk way to sequentially apply Program/Bank values to all Songs and sections on the song page?
Is there a way to export this data out to a text file or spreadsheet? I use Bandhelper’s web portal to bulk edit all of my midi program changes and having it all in a single file would be really helpful.
@David-san - well I’m not sure - if I can use the above method to bulk assign PC values to all of the songs, I would like to be able extract a list that I can then use to programmatically set Bandhelper (on my iPad) to change to the proper song when I cue it up there. So ideally it would be song name, part name, and then the Program/bank number. Bandhelper doesn’t support OSC
I don’t know well band helper, but I guess you would then have a touchable list of song/parts which sends the appropriate PC messages to GP ? So you are interested in a kind of « export setlist » option.
@David-san - yea something like that. Basically something that can help me out when inputting all the PC numbers into BandHelper. I like Bandhelper because I can share setlists with the whole band and load everything from any PC with internet access and have it automagically sync with the iPad(s). I keep all my song notes in there as well. And because it’s on an iPad, it’s built for touch and really easy to make setlist changes on the fly. I used it to drive my Kronos based rig for a while and it became indispensable.
Hmmm, that’s cute. I just wrapped your xlst into a Python file and ran it locally, works great.
When I have some time, I’ll see if I can throw up a page on to our website that will suck in a gigfile and produce this output. Unfortunately that freeformatter page is limited to 2M so it couldn’t load my gig file
I have the same goal as what you have already accomplished, to have Bandhelper on my iPad send program changes to GP to queue up the right song. I would also like to be able to send a program change to my Roland VR-09.
As newbie my head is swimming in all of this. I need help badly. Not sure if this is the best thread to post in, if not let me know. Below is a list of the gear, I’m working with and the things I tried so far. I would greatly appreciate some guidance and any help from you or anyone else in the forum.
MacBook Air OSX 10.15.7
iPad Air (3rd gen) MUUJ2LLA
PreSonus Studio 24 C
Komplete Kontrol S61
Aukey Link PD Pro USB-C Hub
iPad icon is dimmed in Audio MIDI setup.
I have a Bluetooth connection to my MacBook Air from the iPad Air. I also connected a lightening yo USB 3 camera adapter to the iPad Air since I do not have a Lightning USB adapter.
SENDING MIDI FROM BANDHELPER
I registered my MacBook as a MIDI device per the instructions on that page. All ports channel 1
Navigate to MIDI Presets in the main menu and tap the + button at the top of the list to add a new MIDI preset. I added program change, turned on active.
The first field is the bank change (MSB), the second field is the bank change (LSB) and the third field is the program change. I left MSB and LSB blank and set the PC field to 16. Not sure about how to set these.
Under Global MIDI I did not see the iPad in the section “Accept Program Change Message from any device” Does it go through “Local GP port”?
I I have turned on “ MIDI Song select to PC and Use MIDI channel 16”
