Program changes by Ableton

Postby matje » 07 Dec 2018, 22:19

After 10x reading the manual and searching the forum, I still don't really understand how to change programs by midi (send by Ableton).

In Ableton you can send a Bank, Sub an PGM value. In the manual they give values for Bank MSB, LSB and Program Change.

For example, how can I change the program to B25 on the NS3? Which values in Ableton I have to put? In the NS3 I have made sure that he can receive midi messages.

Basic midi: MSB= control 000, LSB= control 032 and + program change that you want to select. You need to sen these 3 messages.
Good luck

I still dont see the meaning of the values.

If you want a program in A-E bank= 0 subbank = 0
If you want a program in F-J bank = 0 subbank = 1

How do calculate the program value? Just counting from the first program in bank A?

Program count restarts at the beginning of each Bank, but there is an easier way than calculating: use a MIDI Monitor and see what the NS3 sends on its Global channel when you change to that Bank/Program.
