So I am just building some new panels for a few new analogue synths and I was wondering if anyone can help me with a question.
I have built quite a few basic panels before to send CC messages but have never been happy with my approach to multiple position switches.
For example I have a Minilogue XD, it has quite a few 3 position switches and because the three CC values have to be 0, 64 or 127 my current way of dealing with this would be to use a fader that you move to the bottom, middle or top to select from the three options.
On my Bass Station 2 the CC values for a 3 position switch would be 0, 1 and 2 meaning I can set the value range from 0 to 2 and the fader then becomes a 3 position switch, this doesnt work on the Minilogue as the switches use the full range from 0 to 127 to represent the three positions so you have a sliding switch that you just have to get to the right place to change the settings on the synth.
Is there a better way to tackle this? I am wondering if there is a way of writing a sysex message that would allow me set the value range from 0 to 2 and have 0 send a value of 0, 1 to send a value of 64 and 2 to send a value of 127, thus giving me a 3 position switch that is sending the full range of CC values.
I am currently re-reading the Midi Devices manual and actually reading the sysex section.
Thanks for any help with this.
