What you sent on your reply with the document is not in details - Ive read the bb manual and what you sent me is public information that I’ve read. it was no use to me . i was hoping for a clearer response
- I will need more detail pictures or something to make it happen/work for my end. Im not a programmer - im just a musician who is trying to use your product to make things less complicated. Right now i dont look forward to use my MC8 . Its best to respond with a pictures if you will assist me with my reques
I’ve already replied the same question you sent us via email in this forum thread and hence did not reply your email.
If you reach out to us on both platforms (email and forum), we prefer to reply here since everyone else can benefit from the information. We do not have direct experience with the thousands of MIDI products out there in the market, and hence if there’s any question on specific product’s (like the beat buddy) MIDI implementation, it’s always better to ask here as there might be users (like @LuisLugo) who owns the product and can provide you with more information (thanks btw!)
We can only help with whatever we can infer from their manual. If it is NOT documented and we don’t own the product, we can’t help at all. If there’s something specific you want to do in the controller, of course we’ll do our best to help if it’s possible.
Regarding scrolling through folders in the beat buddy (we don’t own a beat buddy), based on their MIDI implementation, there’s no easy way to scroll through folders because you need to send 3 MIDI messages - a CC#0 message, a CC#32 message and a PC message. As stated in their manual, sending only CC messages do not change the beat buddy’s song. A PC message is required as well.
Please note that this is not a limitation with our controllers, but more on a limitation on their MIDI implementation (if scrolling through folders is important, there should be a CC function for it?). ANY midi controller can only do so much based on another device’s MIDI implementation. You can try requesting for them to implement a CC# function to scroll through folders or songs, instead of sending 3 MIDI messages.
Again, if the Beat Buddy’s MIDI implementation does not have a function to do what you want, there’s no way any MIDI controller can do it for you.
If you still need a reply via email, please do let me know and I can send you the same response.
@LuisLugo thanks for the supplement information!
