First off, let me say that QBASIS for the iPad is a wonderful piece of work. Who would have thought that a lowly iPad could make such a great music tool!
I have graduated to an iPad Pro (the big one) running IOS 10.2.1, with QBASIS 2 controlling an external midi sound generator by means of midi-over-Bluetooth. This system is working well as I’m getting familiar with its operation.
I think, however, that I’ve found a bug in QBASIS 2 (the full version); or, maybe I’m just not doing something right. Maybe one of you Steinberg guys here can address this:
My problem concerns sending midi control changes, ones that have numeric values, to the external device - for example “program-change”, a midi control command to select a particular “patch”:
While I have learned how to make QBASIS 2 do this, there seem to be “gaps” in the numerical values that can be set for QBASIS to send… on my system there are four of them: between 0 and 4, between 59 and 64, between 100 and 104, and between 123 and 127.
The first gap is particularly bothersome to me, since parches 1, 2, and 3 are the various piano sounds on my generator, which I almost always want to use.
Can anyone verify this, or tell me what I’m doing wrong? Or, if it’s a bug, is there a work-around that I can use?
Thank you, and thanks again to Steinberg for a great product!
