MIDI remote: wish it could open instert FX from MIDI note ons

I tried to find the “open insert plugin” commands in the list of the MIDI remote or something to that effect (no pun inteded but wtf :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: ) but I couldn’t find one. That doesn’t mean it can’t hide in there somewhere, just that I couldn’t find it.

So if it’s not there, I’d like to submit a feature request. I have one of those drum pad 4x4 thingies to the right of me, an Akai MPD218. If I play guitar or keys I don’t do drums & percussion simultaneously so if I just could temporarily repurpose the 16 pads for opening up the insert effect on a selected channel it would be beyond marvelous! Not only would I avoid to mouse around but the MPD218 is such a sensationally tactile thing I can’t keep my fingers off it! :hugs: :flushed: :laughing:

So “open insert FX” as a target in the MIDI remote is my request. Anyone else?

im trying this with the old legacy remote, that has this function in the list…it doesnt work with APC40 with the pads (they send out note)

let me know if you found a way

EDIT: the Recieve Flag was off, i also set it to Push & Toggle now it works!!!


I do this by using the legacy Midi Remote in which a specified incoming midi message triggers the “insert edit” function.


Good thinking!
I’ll save a link and test ASAP! :sunglasses:

Perhaps I am not understanding you correctly, but Note On messages are valid input triggers in the legacy Generic Remote as shown in this screenshot:

yes, i found that the Recieve flag was off, so no signal was coming in from the APC :slight_smile:

thanks for getting back to me, it works now
