Not sure if anybody else has come across this issue:
recently, I often encounter situations where some bindings aren’t working on loading the song in a pre-loaded setlist. Typical candidates are bindings that connect cc64 (sustain) or aftertouch to a rack; when loading these songs via program change, the bindings don’t work. Loading a different song and then re-loading the song usually fixes the problem.
I haven’t really found any logic in the missing bindings; I suspect (but can’t say for sure) that it only happens when loading a song for the first time; and it only occurs sporadically; so it’s a bit of a scare – what if this happens in the middle of a gig?
I have finally found a reproducible one: in one of my songs (“Song 1”) there is a binding that sends channel pressure to my solo rack. This binding is active in state 3:Solo to send aftertouch to the solo synth. When I load this song stand-alone, this binding works perfectly. But when I have it in a pre-loaded set list, activate it either via program change or by clicking in the setlist, it does not work when I step to state 3: no aftertouch! Then I load a different song, go back to Song 1 – suddenly, aftertouch works!
Is this something you have encountered so far?`
ATM, I make sure to step through the whole set list before rehearsal or a gig, but that’s a bit of a pain - plus, really a bit scary, since I can never be 100% sure that my bindings will work correctly.
@brad: I sent you an email with some log files on this - not sure if you got it?
