how do I do this?
I am learning both machines right now, and I know a good amount about how midi works. I’m confused how to connect the dots here, because I always used synths on a midi channel, and did program changes, but I don’t know what to do when the device has a bunch of parts to play, and I want to automate this. So far, I got the Pyramid to play “parts”, and each part is a midi channel. What to do when I want to play the whole pattern? Or change to another “pattern”? If someone knows cross information to help me between these two, I’d appreciate it!
You can setup a track in pyramid and send program changes to Electribe. Use patterns on this track and put a program change on each pyramid pattern pressing 2nd and track to go to the track setup page for each pattern.
Thank you. Yes I think this is better than just sending a sync. I’ll just use Pyramid for patterns, and the sampler to play out the sounds. I figured out the program changes too. works!
Actually, except for the Novation Basstation 2. The LSB and MSB don’t seen standard but it’s not listed in my manuals I got with the synth, and I tried looking online. If anyone knows this off by heart I’d super appreciate it!
I did the work for you since you seem to be new in the technical side of midi.
So, this is taken from electribe sampler midi implementation
“*6 : Pattern MIDI Out [Hex] [Dec]
Pattern 001 - 127 mm,bb,pp : 00,00,01~7F / 00,00,001~127
Pattern 128 - 250 00,01,01~79 / 00,01,001~121”
There are your msb usb values along with program change message.
Pattern 001 - 127 MSB=00, LSB=00, PG 001 to 127
Pattern 128 - 250 MSB=00, LSB=01, PG 001 to 121
