TOPIC: Refresh my Memory: Banks

Refresh my Memory: Banks 4 months 2 weeks ago #19875

I have had S Gear on the shelf because I find another sim offers me better real time MIDI control options. But I am going to start implementing S Gear for some specific uses. On the whole it probably sounds a little better, but the other is close enough and I can work with it more easily on the job.

Today I am investigating setting up some banks for different guitars and work environments, thinking they could be useful.

I have the Bank Up Bank Down written to the controller and here is what I wish to do:

scroll up and down bank slots 0-9 the same way as I would to move from bank to bank or in the master list, preset to preset.

There doesn't seem to be a way to do this. It looks like I would need a (big clunky) foot controller with program numbers assigned to each pedal/button. Is that the only way I can maneuver inside a bank? No way to scroll?

Thanks in advance.

The preset up and down controllers will always move numerically up and down the preset list. They won't follow the current bank assignments (i.e. step through preset assignments within a bank). In which case, no, there isn't currently a way to do this. I agree that probably the preset up/down controllers should work this way with the 'Bank' Midi Mapping Mode.

It would be convenient.

I am requesting that everything be MIDI assignable and that we are allowed 128 assignable slots. For instance, just the Wayfarer Amp A itself has 27 parameters. Not that I think I would truly not be able to make compromises to accommodate using Wayfarer as Amp A and Amp B in a preset but at some point there are a lot of compromises when the other modules (Room Thing, Delay, Convolver, etc) I choose will need some type of control too. 50 is nowhere near enough. Thanks.

If that is not do-able, would creating a modular type of file structure where a group of saved MIDI assignments could be flown in and out of S gear. I know it is probably a lot but I wouldn't think that wouldf be near as complicated as plotting variables inside a tube amp.

PS maybe some things could be controlled by key commands from the computer host.
