Parameters for MIDI Actions
S5 - Suggestion
For sending MIDI actions to electronic instruments, like synthesizers, it is desirable to have a variable parameter for each action in the MIDI action dialog. The value of this parameter should be inserted in the corresponding MIDI action by means of a placeholder (e.g. %PARAM% or the like). A typical MIDI action in instruments.xml could then look like
<MidiAction name="Modulation Rate"> <descr>Set Modulation Rate to given value</descr> <controller ctrl="3" value="%PARAM%"/> </MidiAction>>
The benefit of this would be, to avoid creation of a large number of fixed MIDI actions for each possible parameter value. Currently, this would create a very long list of MIDI actions (see attached example).
