program changes translator

January 28, 2014 | 8:04 am


Is it possible to translate program changes? If comes program change number 100 convert it to 32?

For example:
Playing MIDI clip with program change 100, VST synth getting 32.

Hi Lamisv,

set the VST synth to receive program changes on a different channel than the program changes that are coming in that you want to translate, then use a pgmin object, a select object, bang your substitution when 100 is received, and send it back out through a pgmout object on a different channel.

Live doesn’t handle separate midi channels internally, all midi data is merged on channel 1. So you need another solution, for example using [midiselect] like this.

Thanks a lot, it’s working fine. How to change/translate sub bank from 1 to 5 (and the same program 100 to 32 as well)?

The sub bank message uses CC32. So you can add a corresponding translation.
