Single-Shot MIDI and control / Recording when backgrounded

Postby marlow77 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:15 pm


It seems that when I create a single shot instrument, the midi transmits much lower octaves to other synths via virtual midi. Is there something I can do to modify this (through flotpatch configuration, etc) to control other synths via virtual midi at higher octaves?

Also, would it be possible to enable the finger vibrato for the single shot instruments too? I think it would be great to create additional control interfaces through this setup.

Lastly, I just wanted to ask if you could also enable recording in Thumbjam when Thumbjam is backgrounded so other controllers sending virtual midi would be recorded in Thumbjam.

Thank you for such a great creation and update!

I have recently fixed it so all one-shot style instruments should start at midi note 60 (for the next update).... but in the meantime, not even a flotpatch solution will fix it. You'll probably want to run it through some midi app of some kind that might do transpose... I haven't looked around to see if there is one. I suppose what you want is to be able to specify the midi note number for each "pad"?

Vibrato for one-shot is a good idea actually... I don't think it was intentional that I prevented it from working, so I'll make sure that works for the next update too.

And yes, recording when in background is already on the list for the next update...

Great news! I was hoping to be able to modify the notes in the flot patch so I could make controllers like geo synth or SoundPrismPro directly in TJ. TJ is just more expressive and fun to use, it seems silly to keep switching back and forth since we already have the single shot banks. Also, TJ allows multisample and great customizations through the patches, whereas the other two do not. Lastly, it would be great for using in unison with other soft synths via virtual midi, such as Sunrizer.

Will the next update allow configuring midi note numbers per pad along with vibrato (I'd be willing to modify the patch files to do this for sure).

Great news about the background recording. I was coming here to ask for the same thing.
