Do not change the base note on the Sylphyo but rather at the destination
Great suggestion! But for latency reasons, I've gone down a route that prevents me from modifying the MIDI on the receiving side.
I am routing the Link directly to a VL70-m, and then mixing that dry signal in the RME interface direct monitoring facility directly to the output. This saves me the Round Trip Latency, which makes a noticeable difference in mhy playing.
By the way, the Link has an excellent and reliable MIDI-merge capability, so I can output messages from Cantabile through the Link that get merged with the MIDI stream going to the VL70-m ... an excellent setup.
I would use the push functions of encoders 1-11
Right! That'll work. I can easily allocate another bank just for this purpose ... Good one!!!
a string to set the base note on the current Link
That would be interesting! ... not sure if it exists ... Love to hear from @join or another core member if this is possible.
telling the software that the base note is coming
That's another thing I haven't through of ... Cool ...
I could actually potentially use these thing for the situations where I'm only using software synth ... typically when I do complex layering (as opposed to "just playin sax" when I use the VL70).
Cantabile is really good at generating whatever MIDI is needed and routing it to wherever it is needed ...
Peter ... Thanks for these suggestions ... they are gold (and will send me down an untold number of rabbit holes)!
