iMidi Patchbay Bluetooth pedal (Prev/Next) Setlist Mode

Post by rixkeys » Sun May 19, 2019 3:11 pm

Hi,

I just realized that it would be really cool to have the functionnality to remotely change Song Patches (prog change) in SETLIST MODE with a compliant USB compatible iBluetooth pedal (PREV / NEXT). I'm sure it is possible, as ForScore - music PDF application - already works in that manner.

I have my hands full while I play on my Nord Stage, so this would be awesome to have this features for LIVE situation. My bluetooth pedal is PageFlip from FireFly. Would also be great to be compatible for all other devices via bluetooth (airTurn, iRig, etc...). Would be amazing to have this option for the next update ;)

Thanks for your support,

btw, really dig this App 👌


Eric

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, that would be great. At the moment, you can only change songs using MIDI Program Change commands. So, if you had a pedal board that can send those messages, it would work.

Best,
Johannes

Thanks for your reply Johannes !

But I would really like to avoid more cables in my setup, if possible ;)

My Bluetooth pedals works flawlessly with my ForScore pdf reader as I can scroll through my songs of my SetList.

It would be amazing to use my other bluetooth pedal as a remote device to change my songs in Setlist Mode on iMidiPatchbay.

Is it complicated to add this feature using the Bluetooth protocol on your iMidiPatchBay app ??

Many Thanks !

Eric

Would be possible, but I cannot tell you a date or version when this will be ready, unfortunately.

Hey Johannes, is there any way to control "PREV/NEXT" externally? I assumed with a pro tool such as iMidiPatchbay this would be built in already. I have a Logidy UMI3 foot pedal with 3 switches that send MIDI. I want to use one as "PREV" and one as "NEXT" to scroll through the set list. I typically have anywhere from 12 to 18 songs in a set, and the idea of needing a dedicated button or foot switch for each songs PC message is not practical.

Either that or please give me a "next" button in the iOS interface that I can't miss. The current one requires expert marksmanship to hit on the fly haha!
