MC8 Bank: Boss RC-505

RC-505

External switches need lining up with your own assignments.

Hi @The_Elf

Do you still have this file? It says it has been deleted.

I am trying to control the 505 and having some issues. Namely the ‘two button presses’ issue.

I’d removed it, but here it is again:
RC-505

Took awhile to figure this out, mainly just trouble shooting and watching the MIDI monitor. The 2 button press was pretty annoying. Basically what we may think of as an action takes 2 messages. So for 2 actions (Start/Stop) would require 4 messages, a Press/Release for each action. Here is the example that works for me:

  • I wanted to create a toggle button that would Start/Stop play for Track 1
  • On the 505
    • Make sure you set the Assignment (ex: Assign1) on the 505 to “Moment”
    • Set you CC# on the 505 (Ex: CC#: 1)
  • in the Morningstar MIDI Editor
    • Create a new bank
    • Set Toggle Mode “On”
    • Under Edit Preset you will set 4 Messages
      • Msg 1
      • Action: Press
      • Type: Control Change
      • CC Number: 1 (my example)
      • CC Value: 0
      • Pos: 1
      • Msg 2
      • Action: Release
      • Type: Control Change
      • CC Number: 1 (my example)
      • CC Value: 127
      • Pos: 1
      • Msg 3
      • Action: Press
      • Type: Control Change
      • CC Number: 1 (my example)
      • CC Value: 0
      • Pos: 2
      • Msg 4
      • Action: Release
      • Msg 1: Type: Control Change
      • CC Number: 1 (my example)
      • CC Value: 127
      • Pos: 2
