Controller assignment not working to select song

Post by TommySasso »

I set up a controller assignment to trigger midiflow "song" selection from another app (Midi Designer Pro 2)

I'm using Values (program number) and tried CC0 and CC3. I have assigned program numbers 1 and 2 to my presets in midiflow.

If I monitor Midi Designer Pro 2 virtual out from midiflow I can even see the CC events coming across correctly but the song does not change.

I checked for off-by-one issues and that's not the problem.

Help!

I never did get this working using the Midi Designer Pro Virtual Out.

BUT I found a workaround!

I created a "custom" virtual midi input from midiflow (Select Source -> Add virtual input ... I named it "MidiFlow In") and Midi Designer picked that up automatically and started routing midi events to that input.

I was then able to use this input successfully to set program values for midiflow from a midi designer button, on an otherwise unused channel.

Thanks for the great app! I have achieved rig nirvana, using top keyboard and iPad (with iRig midi 2) to play/control hard-to-reach bottom keyboard.
