I`ll get straight to the point , is it possible to send a cc message while a song in the media player is playing .What I’m trying to achieve is to send cc messages to my helix to control snapshots and different effect settings i.e. turn down a delay at a certain point in a song . Am I correct in thinking this can be done with a midi file that has been created in a DAW and placed in a media file player in cantabile . If this is correct I’m not sure how to set up the binding for this . Any advice help appreciated .
I do precisely this, based on time positions in the Timeline.
I tend to use the ‘Is in range’ binding option, since this lets me jump to a time position in rehearsal and have my Helix (and other devices/plug-ins) follow.
I’m using the full version of Cantabile. This ability might be dependent on the version you are using.
Thanks for responding , I’m new to cantabile still learning the ropes. Could you explain how you set this up .
Do you understand bindings?
yes basic understanding I’ve watched the set of videos on the cantabile site .
Then just add an ‘Is in range’ song binding and set this to cover the Timeline range where you want a certain patch to be selected - then set the target of that binding as a patch change to your Helix.
Here’s a quick example:
Thanks for that just one question how do you get the time positions after the
is in range to change my stay on 11.000
You should be able to just click on the field and type in a new value. If that’s not happening then something is wrong, and beyond that I can’t guess. Works fine here.
ok thanks for your help you put me on the right path
Im using a pod hd pro and use ccs to control it.
I just put the desired message into a midi track that sends to the pod.
Its a bit of a pain, but you can even use an fbv pedal connected to do many things using bindings like start songs, light dmx lights etc.
