Copy Loopy's MIDI bindings
Good news: I found a way to transfer my Loopy MIDI bindings between devices.
My "Network Session" bindings in Loopy has over a total of 60 bindings with gain, pan, mute, overdub for all 12 tracks, plus transport controls and tempo. I finally figured out how to transfer this list of bindings over to other MIDI sources by editing the plist file on a laptop.
- Just browse Loopy's files by connecting your iPad to iFunbox on a PC or mac.
- Find the plist file.
- Save it to the computer.
- Load the file in a plist editor. This one is free on OSX. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/textwrangler/id404010395?mt=12
- find the "Network Session" MIDI bindings and copy/ paste to a new location.
I was able to copy all my "Network Session" bindings for controlling Loopy from another iPad.
Then I pasted these bindings into "Virtual MIDI" for controlling Loopy from the same iPad under MIDI Designer (a MIDI controller app). Without editing the plist, this process of re-creating all the bindings would have taken forever.
Next I'm going to see if I can paste the bindings into my iPhone plist!
Thanks to the guys here for the info: http://forum.audiob.us/discussion/1029/lemur-template-for-loopy-and-turnado
and yes, this won't be an issue if saving and loading MIDI bindings is added as a feature within Loopy, but we all know Michael is busy and we don't want to distract him from other priorities. Just go vote for
"Import/export MIDI binding configuration" on Loopy's feature request poll on Facebook. We've already got 19 votes
