hi… maybe silly question… but i can’t find a way to change the dls midi bank with max… all just because i want the ‘heartbeat’ sound that is on bank 4 pgm 127.
Not that silly!
First you need to change the bank. To do so send 4 to the MIDI controller 0 of the GM synth (with ctlout 0 1).
Then to choose program 127, send 127 to a pgmout 1.
Then send midi notes and prepare to be disappointed with this horrible heartbeat sound…
Seconded, I’ve just recently found that whilst midiformat does program changes, banks are often changed (in my case with my Access Virus Ti2) with cc messages on channel 0 or 32. ctlout works a charm.
