Trying to get my workflow right for live use. I have an external Studiologic 88 keyboard with pedal switches connected to it, controlling the MODX. The issue with the Studiologic multi pedal I bought: I cannot program the pedals to a specific midi CC: they are fixed on CC 66, 67 and 64 (soft / sostenuto / damper CC).
My goal is to switch on and off a solo sound (part) in a performance with a pedal. So I thought let's try this via an assign button with latch setting. If I can switch on Assing1 button by midi CC, and link Assign 1 to control part volume, then I am done! I changed the Midi CC of Assign 1 to 67, and in the control menu of the solo part I assign this to a part volume parameter. So far so good, it worked (thanks Bad Mr and Jason, I am beginning to understand the MODX thanks to you).
But what I overlooked: when controlling the Assign button via a pedal with midi CC 67, the latch function does not work. So, I must depress my pedal as long as I play the solo which is not handy because I cannot use the damper control unless I make acrobatic moves.
My question: is there something to overcome this? Or, is my way of achieving wat I want way to complicated and must I look in another direction to solve this?
