I want to change programs and bank directly from my Digitakt patterns, so that it can change my rev2 sounds on the fly, without having to turn knobs.
My problem :
Strangely enough it seems to work great for bank change with this technique juste above, but not program change. Program change…doenst change !
Here’s the technique for bank changes :
In the SRC page, leave Bank empty (X). P-lock PROG for your Trigs with the respective Program number.
For the Bank switch, go to the AMP page and use BSEL LSB (32) for e.g. SEL1.
Go to the FLTR page and P-lock VAL1 with the Bank number (0=A, 1=B, etc.).
But I can’t change automaticaly program changes…yet.
I put the right program number in the SRC page but non change when I press play, if I manually turn the program numbers on the Digitakt, it changes on my rev2, but not when I press start.
Does somebody knows if there is news about this ?
Is there a program change feature in the AMP page since it seems to work pretty well for bank changes ?
Thank you (I’m very newbie with Digitakt).
Using 1.11 firmware.
I just didn’t understand this part. Sorry i am new to Elektron world. I am hearing parameter lock but i haven’t practice yet. Can you detail a bit more? But anyway you said there is no program change, what am i suppose to do with bank change only?
You can change banks and programs using the method I described in my post above this one.
The Digitakt allows you to set a default bank and program to be selected whenever you use the current pattern on the Digitakt.
Or if you want you could change the bank and program on any (or every) step in the pattern by using Elektron’s parameter-lock (“p-lock”) feature. You can read about the power of p-locks in section 10.10.1 (pages 34 and 35) of the Digitakt’s manual.
Thank, it’s very weird.
It works when I just turn on the Digitakt on and don’t touch anything.
But if I change bank or program on my rev2, the Digitakt sequence won’t trigger any program or bank change…whyyyyyyy !!! I have to reboot my Digitakt so it works only once !
Help me please and…sorry
Hi dude, just FYI that this is good advice that I’ve tried for this exact problem - but still doesn’t help in my case (as the DT still doens’t select the correct bank / prog when pressing play). I’ve found a workaround that I’m posting below, but it’s not exactly the most elegant.
If you change program on your Rev2 after you have sent the message from the DT, the DT does not know this and so it thinks that there is no need to send the messages again. The best way to get it to work is to use change the values from the DT alone or on the Rev2 alone.
[X]'ed the bank. Use [SBNK] as a bank number and [PROG] for the preset number. My module will set itself to GM mode. I can’t reach other 8 banks on my sound module (Roland XV-5050)
What i can do best is: (when module is set the patch mode) i set the desired bank on the module’s panel myself, then dial the [PROG] knob, i can see module responds to that and all the presets going up and down with correct number. Let’s say i set it to PA bank or PB bank, from here digitakt [PROG] will control the presets correctly. Module PB: 53 S&H Pad = Digitakt [PROG 53]
