I have two midi footcontrollers, a Nektar Pacer and A Blackstar Live Logic contoller.
I have written some scripts in conjunction with the Pacer. I would like to be able to
quickly and easily substitute the Blackstar in place of the Pacer. I tried assigning the
Blackstar to the Pacer in Rig Manager, but this does not suffice. I was wondering why,
and also what the best way to do this would be without having to write dual scripts and
creating dual widgets for the Blackstar.
I think you should add a Virtual MIDI Port to the Rig Manager and define a MIDIFOOTCONTROLER alias for it. Then inject both the PACER and the BLACKSTAR in it. And in your Rackspaces use MIDIFOOTCONTROLER rather than PACER or BLACKSTAR. It could work…
I was not sure how to implement a Virtual Midi Port, but your idea gave me a similar idea. I use
the same audio interface/midi interface between my studio and live rigs. Since that is a constant
I used that MidiInDeviceAlias in the GPscript for the InjectMidiEventViaRigManager callback. Now
it works no matter what Foot controller I have connected. The code looks like this now:
I am not sure. Something about the way I implemented things with my scripting caused it to
fail when I tried this. For some reason when I swapped foot controllers in rig manager it
did not work with my scripted InjectMidiEventViaRigManager callback. When I had the BLACKSTAR
Midi foot controller connected, the InjectMidiEventViaRigManager callback is was referencing the other Footcontroller (PACER) that was disconnected. I don’t think you can call InjectMidiEventViaRigManager and reference a Rigmanager MidiInDeviceAlias that is $NULL (becuase it isn’t currently plugged into a usb port)…
It did work when both midi foot controllers were plugged in at the same time.
Scripting is the only way I know how to change PC to CC to switch guitar patches by widget.
I am already using variations to switch keyboard patches. I am using the same Rackspace
for my whole studio setup.
Oh I see - rather than trying to change the argument of a PC message into the argument of a CC number, you’re trying to actually change the CC number itself.
If you’re trying to use GPPresets, then why not use a simple script that just converts a PC number into a GP Preset directly? For example, name your GP presets 0, 1, 2, 3 … then just write something like
