Configuring MIDI Setup

March 29, 2011 | 4:51 pm

Hello All,

I’m looking for a way to reconfigure the MIDI setup in the Options menu with the press of a text button. Should I be using [menubar]? Or can I capture it with [pattrstorage]?

Basically, I’m looking to recall two separate midi setups quickly.

Examples, references, and explanations are appreciated.

Thanks!

Maybe if I write a AppleScript and trigger it with aka.shell?

shouldn’t need shell, you can make your own MIDI Config setup based on the Options menu patch and use [preset] to store different parameters as you want. no need for [pattrstorage] either, probably.

Just be sure you get your [umenus] populated correctly (with MIDI ports) before you save your preset. If you go to a different computer, these menus will likely be different, so that will need a workaround.
