Change Patches on Stage without Changing Midi Channels?
I perform as a keyboardist using 2 or 3 keyboard midi controllers. I use various vst plugins, and change sounds between songs by changing the midi channel from my controllers. This approach has worked alright for me, but it's a challenge to change midi channels on some midi controllers (several button presses in the dark). As far as i know, Live doesn't receive program change midi information, so I can't load, say 100 sounds and switch between them with a program change number. Do you have a suggestion on how to change sounds quickly between songs without changing the midi channel? The approach i use presently limits the number of patches I have access to during a show to 16 per keyboard controller (16 midi channels). I am hoping to load many more patches and quickly change between them between songs.
Thanks in advance.
