Send different midi PC with variations?

Hello there, again !
I wanted to know if it is possible to send program change to my rev2 between variations ?
It’s easy now (thanks to your help pianopaul) to do it in rackspaces, and maybe it is not possible between variations ?

In SetList Mode you can send different messages.
This is a feature on the Song Part Properties
The field above “Open helper tool” can be filled out with messages - not only PC messages

What is a “rev2”? Is it an external MIDI device? If so, you can use a spare MidiIn Device (or a regular one, just block all incoming events to it) along with a widget associated with the PC parameter which you just change in each variation

Also, there’s an even cuter way to do it if you look at this blog article

You can ignore most of it and the references to the FM plugin will be analogous to using a MIDI Out block. But half-way down, there’s a discussion on how to use a text label to display and send PC messages out and that will work for you as well.

If the requirement is to have GP generate the PC message, I just add the Midi Out block and map a widget to the ‘Send PC message on activate’ parameter. It will send the PC on a variation change.

That’s even easier – I forgot about that option.
