Midi Program Change from BandHelper to other App
« on: January 02, 2019, 07:31:52 AM »
I want a Song Selection in BandHelper to send Programs Changes to Audio Evolution Mobile Studio on two Midi channels. It's running on the same Android Tablet. Is this possible?

If so, how?

Thanks!

Sending MIDI between apps on the same device is called Virtual MIDI, and yes, that should work. Ideally you would have at least Android 6 on your device, because older versions use an older MIDI framework.

GREAT! My Tablet is 7.1.1 - so I'm good there.

Now if I can just figure out how to do "virtual Midi" between the 2 apps

It should just work. But the other app might have a setting to select the virtual MIDI port. And the other app would need the ability to stay running in the background (that's usually more an issue on iOS than Android).
