    hey there
    is there a way to use MIDI program change messages with Echobode?
    using Ableton Live
    would like to send program changes for live performance
    great delay thingy... :)

    Sorry, no, Echobode itself does not listen to MIDI program or control changes and unfortunately Ableton doesn't let you control VST program changes with MIDI afaik. One can probably design a Max patch that does it, but I don't know enough Max For Live. I am going to look into implementing this request in the future.

    We have some inconsistencies across our product line when it comes to MIDI support. Here is a table that shows which products supports what:

    Product Program Changes Controls Changes
    Microtonic yes yes (also midi out)
    Synplant yes yes
    Permut8 yes no
    Bitspeek no no
    Echobode no no
    Cyclone yes yes

    thanks Magnus
    means i can't use it live
    still love it

    A work-around is to make an effects rack in Live with multiple instances of Echobode each set to a different preset you want to use and then choose which instance with a chain selector using your midi controller or clip automation. You will want the chain selector to only select a single instance.

    Would love program change support in Echobode as well. The way you handle it in Microtonic and Permut8 is amazing, anything even close to that would be tops!
