Request for Song Completion Action: Send Midi
« on: March 07, 2016, 04:47:44 AM »
Hi,

The  Song select Action / Send Midi is a very handy feature - wouldnt´ it be even better, if you would add a Song Completion Action / Send Midi ?
Just as an example: That way you could turn on your mixer´s reverb when you start a song and automatically turn it off again at the end of the song - with  no programming work at all. I know it could be done with an automation track - but not as easy as with a Song Completion Action: Send Midi .

Could you send the same MIDI preset at the end of every song, or would you need to send different presets for different songs?

It´s okay to have one and the same Midi Preset to be sent at the end of each song - just like it´s the same preset in the beginning (if I see fit?). If I would need a special preset which each song  I would use the automation track.

Okay, that's on my wish list and I added a vote for you. Meanwhile, here are some alternatives:

In the new app version released today, you can add one or more MIDI presets to your layouts to make them available from any song (Layouts > [layout name] > Edit Details > MIDI Presets). You can also edit your layout actions to send the Layout MIDI Presets upon song completion (Layouts > [layout name] > Edit Details > Actions). The song completion will be triggered by the end of an automation track, or the end of a recording if there's no automation track, or the defined song duration if there's no recording. You can also trigger the layout MIDI presets manually from an on-screen button or a foot switch. More info about the new version is here:
