Or you can use scenes. You can designate different scenes with custom combinations of element on/off properties.
You said, however, "PART" and I assumed this meant "Performance" -- but maybe you mean you're really switching out a PART (by using the Single-PART MSB/LSB+PC).
I'm using a Monome 64 to switch Elements on/off within a Performance (via MaxMsp for correct MIDI commands to Montage).
Gives me 64 buttons, one per Element
Hey this is a good idea.. can you share with us the details of how this is done with this hardware and sysex messages?
yes i understand what you are saying BadMister.. but the problem is there is only 2 Assign buttons but 8 elements to deal with..
I am using XA Control in this situation too but for a different purpose.. my setup for a particular part is linked to an arp that plays a hihat pattern and my elements looks like this..
Cycle - HiHat Close 1
Cycle - HiHat Close 2
Cycle - HiHat Open
Random - Shaker
So you see I am cycling through each hihat with a random shaker but then if i turnoff the Open HiHat, the pattern gives me a totally different feel which is what i want and it's great for buildups or changes.. yes i can mute but it will revert back to the original list when i change parts.. if you can please tell Yamaha to make those mutes permanent
