I posted this question under another topic but just reposting to see if I can get more answers..sorry if this is clogging up space!
This is concerning patch change commands from a MIDI controller rather than manually editiing it in the software.
I use gigastudio with HS2002, and recently purchased the Radium controller, with the DREAM of being able to produce realistic sounds using mod wheel etc.,
I have been also trying to send patch change commands from the controller but somoehow my software does not recongnized it. If I issue a program change and entered a patch number, somehow GS never chooses the right bank, it always defaults to bank zero.
Any feedback on whether this is possible? I would imaging composers with software synths definitely would have encountered this need and must have solved it. This would be a huge benefit. For example take a passage like the opening movement of the fifth. How painful it is just record a marcato patch for the first 3 notes and then do a patch change (to a more sustained patch) in the software, and then record the forth note separately!
I would rather like to control the patch change as I play.
Any inputs greatly appreciated!!
