One MIDI Control transmitting a series of keystrokes?

Post by callmezoot » Tue Feb 14, 2006 4:28 am

Is it possible to assign one MIDI button to transmit a whole series of keystrokes?

For example, I am playing live with a sequencer using an instrument in track 1. I would like to switch to the track 8 instrument in realtime by simply hitting a button. On the keyboard I would click the DOWN ARROW 7 times in order to get to track 8. Is it possible for MT to do this with one button (i.e. I hit B1 on my Edirol controller, and it transmits a series of 7 Down Arrow keys rapidly?)

Also, can it do this in more complex configurations? i.e. DOWN, DOWN, TAB, ENTER, TAB, TAB, TAB, ENTER -- in order to navigate through various options of a softsynth interface?

yes, in the Outgoing Action, you can enter any series of key strokes to be sent in response to one MIDI command. Just enter them one after another.
