Feature Request: Turning PC out off.

A shy feature request:
Could you please think about an option to block outgoing Program Changes in the Sylphyo?
The Sylphyo outputs PC at various occasions and often switches the other synth to some program it should not be. In my case I want to change the sound of both independently. Of course in other setups you want the programs strictly linked. Therefore the setting must be optional.

@peter-ostry I was thinking that this would be controlled by:
* MIDI Mapping Program change > Send Bank Off
... or maybe I am not understanding the purpose of this configuration parameter.

@peter-ostry For the moment you could change the midi channel while you are changing sounds on the Sylphyo (which sends PC messages). When you want to control your synths you can then revert back to channel 1 (or whichever channel you use).
We will look into adding this feature in the future.

The bank setting let's you select a sound bank number (for synths who require that) but afterwards it also sends the Program Change.
I see what you mean and it is somehow similar to what I do. Below is a draft of my smallest computerless setup (not tested yet).
The controller has 2 MIDI outlets that can be filtered by channel. For each sound change I send first the Sylphyo PC (which sets the 'wrong' Blofeld program) and after a short delay I send the Blofeld PC I want. The Gordius can do this automatically. This way I get one dedicated sound combination with a single footstep.
Manipulating the Sylphyo settings will still 'unset' the Blofeld program but I don't see a way to avoid this as long as the Sylphyo sends Program Changes. I could add a hardware MIDI filter after the Sylphyo but this adds another box and may cost additional 100 Euro or more.
