Sometimes the monitoring on stage is far from optimum (especially with the 6 brass players next to me) and it doesn’t make sense to turn my monitor louder since I’d like to hear the other musicians too.
However, on quieter organ parts I have problems hearing if leslie speed is slow or fast.
The reason is that sustain pedal is used for toggling leslie speed and at the same time for “normal” sustain with piano/synths a. s o…
Recently I had the idea to make the leslie speed state visible.
I “misused” the OnScreen Keyboard for that purpose.
If the OnScreen Keyboard is visible the leslie speed is fast.
If it is not visible the leslie speed is slow.
In the linked rack (Blue3 here) I have to make sure that the initial condition
when loading songs/song states is “leslie slow”. Then every action on the sustain pedal toggles the OnScreen Keyboard on/off.
In the background rack I make sure that the initial condition for the OnScreen Keyboard when switching songs/song states is “off”.
This works inside one songstate with various instruments and when switching songstates in conjunction with seamless switching too.
BTW: That’s why I like Cantabile3 so much - there is always a solution that is not possible with hardware keyboards alone.
