MIDI Control

Post by andyp13 »

Is there anyway I could switch in a stereo flanger via MIDI on the main LR out of my X32. Doing a version of Listen to the Music’ and would like to simulate the clanging bit…but I need to trigger it in/out via MIDI. No idea how to do this so ‘layman’s terms’ would be appreciated

Hey Andy, why not setup one of the first 4 FX slots with the flanger the way you want it, then simply unmute the appropriate FX sends to that slot? Muting/unmuting FX 1 sends is done using midi cc 56 ch 2 0/127. If you want to mute/unmute the FX Returns (eg. FX1L/FX1R), the midi is cc 40 ch 2 0/127.

Thanks Paul
Trust it to be on channel 2 ☹️.
would it also be possible to have a snippet with the main L&R going through a Flanger and switch to and from that using a MIDI command? would snippets change seamlessly or would there be a glitch etc? Can snippets be controlled via MIDI.....or would it be easier to go with running each individual track using send/return

Hey Andy,
Yes a snippet can be made to insert the Stereo Flanger to the Main LR. The flanger does not have an On/Off, but does have a mix knob (parameter 6) which can be adjusted with a couple of snippets to 0 (no FX) to 100 (full FX) - or anywhere in between. Or the latter can be adjusted with a couple of sysex OSC strings, which can be created using my SysexOscGen app.

Would I be able to have a snippet with the effect on and another snippet with it off using these on/off switches?

Oops, you are correct Andy. But the ON/OFF is not part of the FX OSC commands. Instead, it is part of the channel strip insert commands, or in your case part of the Main insert commands. The command is /main/st/insert/on. So the snippet files would be as follows.

#4.0# "Main Flange On" 0 0 0 0 1
/main/st/insert/on ON

#4.0# "Main Flange Off" 0 0 0 0 1
/main/st/insert/on OFF

If your midi controller can send sysex strings, you could also send the following hex strings (2nd line). These were generated by SysexOscGen.

OSC: /main/st/insert/on ON
F0 00 20 32 32 2F 6D 61 69 6E 2F 73 74 2F 69 6E 73 65 72 74 2F 6F 6E 20 4F 4E F7

OSC: /main/st/insert/on OFF
F0 00 20 32 32 2F 6D 61 69 6E 2F 73 74 2F 69 6E 73 65 72 74 2F 6F 6E 20 4F 46 46 F7

Thanks for the help, I will give it a go and see what happens 😊
