MIDI Help / Re: Setlistmaker midi control
« Last post by coachz on November 12, 2021, 04:07:23 PM »
We just bought Set List Maker but were surprised when I required another 5 bucks to get the midi to work.   Of course it's in the fine print vaguely......Some advanced features (*) require an in-app purchase

Arlo - thanks so much for the help! I think this approach will do what I need, so I spent some time today arraigning things to work this way. All is perfect - except (knew that was coming didn't you)...

I set up Next Midi for CC69 and for Two Finger Tap (so I can do it either way when playing live). All working except when I use pedal (CC 69) OR Two Finger Tap, my Midi log show a continual loop... 
-sending data [BF, 4C, 00] to all ports
-sending data [B1, 3F, 00] to all ports

I stopped Midi, cleared my log, restarted Midi, BH kept doing it
I turned off wireless and Bluetooth on iPad, restarted BandHelper, and it still does it.
I removed 'CC value' from Remote and Midi, restarted BandHelper, and it still does it on Two Finger Tap.

Finally seemed to find if my Midi preset also had a Midi Preset attached, the "Next Midi Preset" command got into a loop?  Can you see that as well?

ie - I added "turn reverb on" to all of my light Midi presets, and when I "Next Midi" a light preset, I get this loop...

You can send Next MIDI Preset from a layout action, which you trigger from a tap or a swipe, if that is doable while you're playing. I was thinking of the remote control action, which you trigger from a foot switch. That's configured on the Settings > Remote Control page.

Thanks - will check that out... had not thought about "Send next midi" and sounds like that might do the trick, but the trigger I see for that in Layout/Detail is a tap or a swipe?  Can that be triggered by a PC or CC instead (for a footpedal)?

Tips and Tricks / App Shortcuts on iOS 13 and up!
« Last post by gFred on November 11, 2021, 12:59:17 PM »
Hi all!

I just want to share a new findings that helps with app shortcuts in BH and the (un)famous URL schemes that are now pretty hard to find since the handleopenurl.com link is now dead.

Since iOS 13 and up, there is a new Apple scripting app called Shortcuts that can do a lot of pretty cool things including the simple task of opening any app on your device. What I found out is that you can call a shortcut you made with a common URL scheme that will work in BH App shortcuts.

The basic steps are as follows:

  • Open the Shortcuts app on you device and create an "Open App" shortcut to the app of your choice
  • Once the shortcut is done, assign it a name, like "Mixer"
  • In BH, add the App shortcut as usual, giving it a name like "Open Mixer"
  • For the Scheme, enter the following:
                                     shortcuts://run-shortcut?name=[name] ,
                where, in this example, [name] would be replaced by the word Mixer (no brackets), the name of the shortcut we just made in Shortcuts.
See? With this method, any app can be opened with it's shortcut if it's available in Shortcuts!

For more info on Shortcuts app, visit https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/shortcuts/welcome/ios

Pro tip: Since your actually going through the Shortcuts App before the final destination App, i.e. Mixer in the above example, the quick "Back " arrow on the top left of the screen will take you back to Shortcuts instead of BandHelper. I know, a bummer so to work around this I added a shortcut to BH in Shortcuts so I don't have to go through the app switcher to go back!


It helped me a lot, so I hope it will help others too!

  Cheers!

Your first two screen shots show an automation track, but it looks like you're only using it to send MIDI at the start of the song. While this is a completely legitimate way to use it, that doesn't change the terminology -- it is still an "automation track" because it allows multiple events to be triggered at predefined times throughout the song.

Your third screen shot shows the layout actions (song selection, song second selection) that you're using to trigger the automation track.

When you talk about "pause events," I think what you mean is that you want to send predefined groups of MIDI presets at different points throughout the song, but you want to send those manually rather than at predefined times (because you're not playing to a click track or backing track). In that case, Ahiru's suggestion about parent/child presets could be helpful. You can create one preset for every point in the song that you want to send data, then you can attach to those presets all the presets you want to send at that time. For example, you could have one parent preset for the verse, and attach to that multiple presets to change effects and lights; and another parent preset for the chorus, and attach to that multiple presets to change them again. Then attach the verse and chorus presets to your song. Then step through them as you play with the Next MIDI Preset remote control action.

Actually that might address your original question about resetting your lights and effects between songs. You could attach an initial preset to each song that calls all the child presets needed to reset your equipment, then when you're ready to start the song, use a foot switch to select the next preset, which would call all the child presets needed to set up that song. That same foot switch button could start auto-scrolling and anything else that you're currently doing with the Song Second Selection layout action.

This would require turning off Settings > Audio & MIDI > Send MIDI Presets Together, so that selecting the song only calls the first preset attached to it.

I'm not sure how you know whether to go forward or backward to get to a song that has been selected out of order ... unless your song list text is so small that you can see the whole list ... or you have the set list order memorized. Anyway, I can add to my wish list an option to restore the previous behavior of the Next/Previous buttons wrapping to the other end of the set list.

I'm running BH on a single-board computer running Android. The display is a standard computer monitor attached to my pedalboard. My layout shows the set list in a narrow column on the left, and the rest of the screen is for lyrics/documents.
