Send program change from different track?

Hi all,

I would like to use M4L to send a program change to a VST audio plugin from a different track.

e.g.: track 1 has a device (a VST plugin) which can receive prograqm changes. I want to create a M4L plugin which runs on track 10, which can send a program change to the device on track 1.

Is this possible? I’ve checked the API but haven’t found a way to send it from a different track.

Many thanks,

Kessito

You cannot do this directly, however you can do it this way indirectly:
- insert an extra ‘helper’ m4l midi device on channel 1 in front of your vst and
- then let your m4l plugin on track 10 communicate with this device with sends and receives or by binding it to a parameter of the device on track 1
