Midi commands to trigger external devices

Postby Cablecr69 » 12 September 2018, 08:43


Is there a way of placing midi commands on a timeline to trigger external devices in ShowXpress though USB?

I want to control my XR12 desk, i.e. FX mutes from the timeline with midi, as i use it to play backing tracks and synced lights.

Sorry but this is not possible.
Our software only receives midi commands, and it can return one midi command for each received midi command.

I would suggest to use an external DAW or MIDI sequencer to trigger both the XR12 and ShowXpress. If you are on WIndows, you can do that on the same PC that runs ShowXpress via a "MIDI loop" app.
This one for example:
