Changing banks and presets in Guitar Rig 5 plugin using Abelton 9
I am trying to control a guitar plugin, Guitar Rig 5, via bank and preset changes.
I am a single acoustic player and I use Abelton to play a backing track and control my lighting, but I am having trouble figuring out how to setup up Guitar Rig and my MIDI channels apparently.
I am looking to be able to change from one guitar patch (like a clean sound) to a dirty sound (lead solo) automatically (eliminating the need to do the foot pedal Riverdance while playing live), but I can’t seem to figure this out after two days. I see the presets in the list, but for the life of me I can’t seem to make this work.
I dragged the plug in to a newly created "return" and then attempted to create a two new MIDI channels to perform the desired bank and preset changes. But this did not work.
I then dragged the Guitar Rig 5 plugin into a newly created "audio" track, and tried to do the same thing, but that hasn't worked either. Under the "send to" MIDI section I can select "Guitar Rig" from the drop down, but afterward I can not select the box below---which I would think would allow me to select the MIDI channel I want to sent the command for bank changes and preset changes.
The goal is to have Guitar Rig 5 changing presets automatically, so I can play through a song and at the appropriate time the GR5 plugin would switch from clean channel to distorted---for example, for a lead solo part.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
