[Uses & Ideas] Setlists Toggle

I’ve used the setlist recommendation

However, I’ve expanded it by using a Set Toggle on an external switch to toggle between Song 1 and Song 2 on each switch, giving me 32 songs on two pages.

Now if we could name Shift we could have 48 (named) songs per switch. If we could have Toggle 1&2 in the shift position we could have 64 songs on two pages! (@james [Feature Request] 3rd preset name for shift state)

Additionally, I send Bank Jump upon selecting the song to instantly take me to my presets for that song along with BeatBuddy and Aeros and Tempo (if using a generic 4/4 rather than tempo already said to the song). One flick and ready to play. If playing live, I’d probably also send a Start message to any devices (e.g., BB Intro).

I just added Shift to my external pedal with a Long Press, so I can now have a third (un-named hidden) preset per switch. Just have to remember it’s there. Of course, this is likely unnecessarily complicated given even 32 songs per bank is a lot. If you like things complicated and have a better memory than me, add a fourth (un-named) preset per switch with a double tap and a fifth with a long press. :stuck_out_tongue:

Sounds like a great use of shift…. Can you export a sample bank as json and post it here, would love to take a look!

Here is a sample preset, import in a blank slot to see how I have done it.

Controller: MC-8
Description above, but note I have aligned my PC for the BeatBuddy and Aeros for 1&2, but could not do it for Shift song. Add whatever messages you need.

Her is my “S” switch, which you can put anywhere to Toggle position 1 & 2 as well as Shift (As noted above, there is no label for Shift at this time). If you don’t have aux switches available, then you could place a long press or double tap on any switch to toggle positions. I also have a Double Tap to send me to my Home bank.

Here it is. Let me know what you think and how you would change or streamline it.
