Selecting instruments used in playing loops

Postby luris48 » Sun Jul 05, 2015 2:28 pm

Is there a way of selecting an instrument that is being used and playing in a current loop to play as the current instrument loaded up other than returning to the instrument list and re choosing?
Would be a handy feature for me in realtime performance if it exists.

You can use MIDI program change messages to switch instrument presets. Sending a bank select (CC0) allows you to choose whether program change messages will load from Default presets, User Presets, or the scale/key from a quick select slot.

From the user guide:

(Option in Settings->MIDI Control)
Use Program Change Accept Bank Select MSB (CC0) and Program Change messages to
load instruments or scales. The following conventions are followed, and apply
to the instrument based on the channel number of the event:

Bank MSB 00 - Program changes after receiving a bank select MSB (CC0) of 0 will load the
Default preset instrument with the given index, as displayed in the Instrument
Preset list’s Default section.

Bank MSB 01 - Program changes after receiving a bank select MSB (CC0) of 1 will load the
User presets instruments with the given index, as displayed in the Instrument
Preset list’s User section.

Bank MSB 02 - Program changes after receiving a bank select MSB (CC0) of 2 will change the
selected slot in the Quick Key/Scale set (as shown when pressing the #/b
button in the sidebar).
