A little help in understanding whether a binding can support multiple actions… OR a better way!
Searching the Forum, I came across this note from Brad:
“Bindings with multiple actions/targets…
–You can do this by creating multiple bindings with the same source…”
I have some free time to play around and try this, but need some guidance on how to do, as I didn’t find in the User Guide. Thinking of how I might do the following during random live playing:
On my upper keyboard, I want to easily switch the preset from one VST (e.g. VB2 organ) to a preset on another VST (Kontakt 5 strings). Currently I bind a keyboard note (lowest octave) to activate a command to toggle the current VST sound off, then another key to switch to the other VST/preset. I tried using Solo Exclusive, but whatever I’m doing (wrong?), the Solo Exclusive command affects multiple keyboards, not just the upper one (I use three).
I was looking for a possible way to perhaps continue to use the keyboard note (or any other midi controller on the keyboard) to both shut-off the current VST preset AND, as a second action, turn-on another VST preset. So in the example above, I would be playing an organ sound, then with one press of a note/controller, switch to strings, without having both the organ and strings sounding together.
I’m hoping I’m just missing a simple way to accomplish this and don’t need a binding to do multiple actions.
A little guidance would be greatly appreciated or if Brad’s aforementioned note to another user is the best approach, I just need some help in where to research how to do that.
