Midi to control stepping through steps in a scene

Postby GPC » 11 May 2018, 14:29

This is really a feature request as I don't believe there is currently a way to achieve the following with ShowXpress:

Aim:
To be able to use a single midi button to step through the individual steps in a single scene.

Example:
Set up a scene where each 'STEP' is a colour in the chosen lighting fixture (STEP1=red, STEP2=blue, STEP3=green, etc.).
Assign a midi button so that multiple presses will step through each available STEP in the scene in turn (PRESS1=red, PRESS2=blue, PRESS3=green, etc.).

There is already a 'PRESET FADER' that allows the user to pre-select which step is used when the button is activated. So maybe it would be possible to assign a midi button to 'select next step' to the PRESET FADER control?

Many thanks, Gary

Wouldn't it be more simple to assign a "next" MIDI command for several scenes? Up to you to "split" your steps in scenes...

I don't think ShowXpress supports "next" MIDI commands. If it does, I don't know how?

Thank you - I didn't know it was being worked on. Looking forwards to it! :)
