Greetings. I couldn’t find a post that had this specific question. I am transitioning a set of songs that I have made prior into a single Project file, with each Bank being a different song. This way there is no load time, and I can use the Arranger to handle BPM changes.
I am currently sequencing a Virus KB with my Octatrack DPS-1, and would like to change my Virus Multi programs when I change my Octatrack Banks. I am able to change the individual Multi-Single channels this way; when I switch to a different Bank within an OT Project, the MIDI tracks within that Bank are set to change the corresponding Multi-Single patch for each MIDI channel in the Virus, and works fine.
But as stated, I’d like to also change the Multi on the Virus, as the global effect (Delay/Reverb) is Multi dependant. It’s not the end of the world, just a minor inconvenience, to change the Virus Multi when I change to a Bank that uses delay instead of reverb, or similar. I’m just curious if I can set this up to change automatically. (An aside: I’m pretty sure the KB calls Multi-Single Mode what the TI calls Sequencer Mode?)
Has anyone been able to achieve this? Should I be using the OT Auto-Channel somehow to do this? I am only using at max 5 MIDI channels per song, so I could assign an unused MIDI channel to the Auto-Channel if so.
