I’m loving the transport triggers and binding groups! I’ve removed a bunch of song states and replaced their associated bindings with transport triggers, making things much simpler and easier to maintain.
I also created MP3s to play the bumper music before, during, and after the show. I previously had bindings to mute all the mixer channels that go to FOH, and turn the stage lights off. Now with transport triggers, two minutes before the bumper music ends the stage lights come back on and the channels are unmuted, automagically! (I did this because of drunk people and their penchant to sing along to whatever break music you’re playing).
My next step (and the reason for this post) is to connect the vocal processor (Voicelive 3), bass processor (Rocktron Blue Thunder), and guitar amp (Blackstar 240) via MIDI, and have Cantabile control everything. This includes control changes and program changes, each sent via MIDI using a transport trigger. I can see this quickly getting unwieldy, and I was looking for suggestions on how to proceed? Right now, I’m thinking I’ll just create binding groups for each device per song, and then put the bindings for each device in it’s own group. We’re probably talking about 20 or so additional bindings per song.
Thanks in advance.
