Much as I like my newly-installed Padshop Pro, I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t support MIDI Program Change commands. A good way to handle this is to support “MIDI Progam Banks”, where a bank is a structure of 128 presets (0-127).
A user loads a bank and then the host app transmits Program Change commands, which selects a preset to be loaded. This doesn’t mean all patches MUST be organized into banks, it’s an option (cf. how Kontakt handles this feature.)
Very disappointing not to have this simple and obvious feature available; AFAIK it has been part of the “official” MIDI specification since 1.0. It’s useful for all type of plugins. Steinberg, pls. reconsider this.
