Loopy Pro: Midi out
Hi @Michael ,
I'm sure you're already under a zillion of request but I'll put it here anyway...
I'm trying to setup a complete show with lights and visuals along some live music built with loopy.
The only way I can imagine it possible is to have the state of the loop via midi from Loopy.
(to communicate with an external VJ software)
Today, the only informations missing are :
- when two tracks are merged
- when a track is deleted /emptied
Do you think it would be easily implemented in Loopy pro?
a status message when two tracks are merged could be CC#2 value = 3 , meaning for instance track 2 is now merged with track 3 ...
What do you think?
Hmm can you tell me more about what it is you’re trying to achieve? I feel like there has to be more elegant solution than that..
Without revealing too much, I wish to integrate lights&visuals in my performance.
I imagine projecting some live videos on a screen behind me, from a computer with a VJ software like Resolume, or a custom solution.
The thing is it has to evolve according to what I do musically with loopy.
For instance :
and so on...
I think the best way to do so is to have a specific software for the visuals, and comunicating with it by MIDI.
Hence, knowing the states of the tracks by midi.
Do you have another suggestion?
Following your answer on the AB forum, obviously i'm a bit frustrated given that i don't see any workaround to know that two tracks have been merged, from midi. Butii guess you must be overwhelmed with requests.
However, if you decide to give it a try, here is a suggestion :
When track 1 is merged to track X, loopy pro could output the midi cc 1(or configurable) with value X.
(we had a similar discussion on this forum about a special midi binding, to merge two consecutive tracks)
