I have an expression pedal connected to my MC-8. I currently have it set up to control my delay, a Source Audio Collider, in a particular bank. I also have a Source Audio EQ2, a midi-controlled eq/volume pedal, on the same board. I would like to use the expression pedal to control the output volume of the EQ2. It would be very useful to have a button assigned to switch between these two operations. So in position one, the expression pedal controls the delay. In position two, it controls the EQ2.
This thing does so much it’s hard to keep up! Thanks again to the Morningstar team for always including new features!!
Select Expression Message message type is your friend.
So I think that gets me where I want to go with some questions.
Based on the experimentation I’ve been doing, I come to these conclusions:
When the device powers up, the expression engine defaults to enabling all 16 message slots.
When you switch banks, the messages content defined for that bank is loaded into the expression engine.
When you enable a message slot, using ‘Select Exp Message’, the slots remains enabled even if you change banks.
When you disable a message slot, using ‘Select Exp Message’, the slots remains disabled even if you change banks.
In other words, message content per slot is scoped to the bank, while enabling per slot is global.
Do I have that right?
- Yup, the controller boots up with all 16 messages enabled.
- And yes, the selected messages are persisted through bank changes, so if you want the setting to reset to default when you change banks, you should use a
Bank Presetto engage the
Select Exp Messagefunction and reset the enabled/disabled messages
