tips for changing Presets in a live performance? why no midi Program Change? (attn: developers)
I'm really hoping to incorporate the ipad for live performances, but as it stands, not many Auv3 instruments support proper Program and Bank Change implementation via midi. This is hands down the biggest hurdle keeping me from using so many great Auv3's in a live performance.
There are surprisingly few that do can do it*, and as it turns out most of the synths I want to use don't accept them, or cause huge cpu spikes when changing (virsyn and moog)
To any performers using an ipad via midi control (sequencers, keyboards, etc): how are you changing presets when using many different plugins? is there some secret I'm missing? I'm using a hardware sequencer and it's a breeze to map cc to a controller so that I can play the parameters of different instruments in real time, and even sequence those changes. But if I want to change the preset of several instruments simultaneously, I can't seem to make this happen.. It takes several steps for each one - tapping each app, then scrolling through lists on a screen (which isn't very high on the list of things I want to be doing on stage)
Am I alone here? If so, am I SOL..? Any hope of Streambyter or some other tool helping me?
- these are some that do accept PC: Beepstreet, Moog, Apesoft, Icegear, bs-16i, Syntronik, Yonac... a few others that exibit odd behavior (such as KQ Dixie - only the first 32 presets are accessible - even though most owners likely have thousands of presets).
-Auv3 that currently DON'T: Audio Damage (Quanta and Phosphor), Virsyn (they technically do, but very glitchy crashy), Ripplemaker!, Tardigrain, Poison-202, Volt, SynthMaster One (it's on the list of fixes), Alina String Ensemble. I'm sure there are others, but these are the ones I'm personally eyeing that I would use onstage if it was added.
