"Next/Previous Setting" for Externall MIDI Synths


Recommended Posts

Hi All.


Many hardware synths have "+" and "-" buttons to incrementally scroll through patches. Some examples in my collection are the Oberheim Matrix 1000, Yamaha TX7, DSI Poly Evolver, Yamaha Motif. I could go on.


Because I hate crouching over my racks while hunting through patches, I'd like to create an environment object with "+" and "-" buttons that allow me to trigger incremental patch changes in my external synths. Just to be clear, by "incremental," I mean adding or subtracting one from the currently selected patch location. This function would be similar to the "Next Setting" and "Previous Setting" key commands that we use for plug-in synths and fx, duplicating that function for external hardware synths.


The best I've been able to do so far is creating a transform object that maps control change messages to patch changes. This is awkward to use.


Any ideas?
