Hey folks. First post. Just digging into MIDI for the first time and trying to reason my way through a little puzzle with my Empress Echo System. I will try my best to describe what I have set up and what I’m trying to do and hopefully if there’s a solution someone can help me find it.
I have a bank set up to control the scrolling preset system of the Echo System with Scroll Left, Scroll Right, and Load/Bypass switches. This is all done using a combination of CC messages to control the footswitch functions, so I’m not actually using any PCs for this purpose. It’s actually mostly working pretty well save for one thing that I’m struggling to wrap my head around. I would like the bypass status to stay the same when I switch between presets. So if I have a preset loaded but I have the pedal bypassed and I load another preset I would like it to stay in bypass until I press the load switch again. and also conversely; if I have a preset loaded with the pedal engaged and load another preset I would like that preset to load in engaged status and bypass on another tap of the load switch. I would prefer to be able to do this all with single presses/release actions. I suspect this must be possible using toggle positions and some help from toggle clear maybe, but I can’t seem to reason my way through it. Maybe it’s not but if it is and someone else can help me figure it out I’d be incredibly grateful. Let me know if I’m missing any details or if there’s any more specific info on what I’m doing or trying to do that may help you solve this. TIA!
there’s a few command options to engage or bypass that might be useful in different scenarios.
left switch tap (load selected preset) CC#35 Value 64
right switch tap (engage/bypass) CC#37 Value 64
Engage Pedal CC#60 Value 127
Bypass Pedal CC#60 Value 0
