It is possible to send incremental or decremental (by 1) PC messages with the MIDI controllers. This feature is further enhanced in Firmware
Firmware v3.8.x onwards
In Firmware v3.8.x onwards, we added the
Scroll Counter settings in the
Controller Setting. Here, you can edit the
maximum values for each of your 16 counters. The start value is the value that the counter will be at when the device powers up.
Do note that the Counters are labelled using the hexadecimal notation 0 - F, which in decimal terms is 1 - 16.
After programming your
Scroll Counter settings, you need to program your Preset to send the CC or PC message using values from the
Counters. I’ll be using the
PC Number Scroll message type for this example. You can send incremental/decremental CC values as well using the
CC Value Scroll message type. The concept is the same.
Scroll Type parameter, there are a few options to choose from
Send onlysends the PC message without changing the counter value
Increase by 1 and sendwill increase the counter value by 1 and then send the PC message
Decrease by 1 and sendwill decrease the counter value by 1 and then send the PC message
Update onlywill just update the counter value
Reset onlywill just reset the counter value to the default value
If I want to send an incremental PC number each time I engage the preset, I’ll choose the
Increase by 1 and send option.
The next parameter
PC Number as value in Counter allows you to select the Counter that you want to use (from Counter
0 - F). I’ll choose
Counter 0 for this. I’ll also set my MIDI Channel to
After saving these settings, each time I engage the Preset, the PC number sent will increase by 1, as seen on the MIDI Monitor.
Scrolling through multiple PC messages with the same PC number
The setting below will send an incremental PC message on both Channel
2. Both PC messages will use the value in
If I check the MIDI Monitor, the following messages will be sent out each time the Preset is engaged.
In Firmware v3.7, using the
PC Scroll Up or
PC Scroll Down message type will allow you to send incremental or decremental messages respectively.
The setting below will
Use Slot (or Counter) 1 with a lower limit of
0and upper limit of
127. It will also increment the number each time the Preset is engaged
