Is there any way to stack two actions to a single bluetooth key binding?
@lukesleepwalker - loopy will only permit one binding per midi command. But, you can use something like MidiDesigner in between. In Midi Designer you use the Relationships ; Super control and sub control, to take one in coming midi message and send out multiple.
Good point Ganthofer, but I don't think that quite answers the OP. A Bluetooth key press will not be registered by mididesigner.
You would have to add in another iPhone with something like Double Decker. DD would take the keystroke, convert it to a single MIDI command, then send it via wifi or BT to you main device. Then Midi Designer could respond to that and send out 2 midi commands to Loopy!
It gets complicated, but it works.
@Hmtx - my mistake, I was thinking midi Bluetooth not keyboard. I was playing with the Puc+ at the time. However, my k-board connected to the Puc+ was sending Midi over Bluetooth to my iPad and a midi designer super-control was sending to sub-controls midi commands to Loopy.
yep, no worries. It is amazing how well the MIDI over bluetooth works.
Back on topic, you could technically make this work all on one device, but DoubleDecker would need to be the foreground/ on-screen app so that it would receive the BT keystroke commands. (This is because BT keyboards only send data to the on-screen app. MIDI signals are handled differently and will continue to be processed in the background.)
Thanks for the responses. So Hmtx has got the tiger by the tail but I don't have a second iOS device I can use for DoubleDecker and I don't want DD in the foreground because I watch Loopy to make sure I know "where I am" while playing. Too bad too, because DD looks exactly like what I need. Maybe I'll be on the lookout for a cheap iPhone or iPod touch or something.
I haven't upgraded to iOS9 but I wonder if the new split screen view mode could help with running DoubleDecker at same time as Loopy?
Just so you know, I'm probably going be supporting multiple actions per binding soonish, for both MIDI and Bluetooth.
Excellent, thanks Michael. I'll hold off on the complex gymnastics then.
Argh! How soonish? I am in a midi actions hell!
