    Hey All,

    so my current set up is

    Cali 76 CB > EQ2 > SA C4 Synth > SA Aftershock > SA Spectrum > EQ2 (effects loop to get EQ before pedal hits preamp> DSM Bass Simplifier

    in the Effects Loop (parallel) of the DSM is a MOOG MF Delay and MF Trem. The source audio pedals are controlled with a Morningstar MC6.

    I’m trying to figure out if it’s possible to do a few things (YouTube is quite limited in applications of midi with these specific needs in mind)

    1. I was able to set one of my presets (F) to point directly to the Aftershock to turn it on and off. I’d like to be able to set it so when I step on it again, I switch to CH2 and when I double tap it it bypasses. I’ve been able to figure out how to tap it on and get it to double tap off but not the specific CC numbers to engage the channel switch without reading about needing the tap tempo switch.

    2. I’d also like to have a switch dedicated to sustain the C4. I don’t need it sustained to play things under, just to ensure the envelope doesn’t close out prematurely. I would assume I need to select the envelope to be controlled with a momentary switch but I, for the life of me, can’t find a good guide on how to accomplish this.

    Is there anything under the 'Midi Dictionary' tab, under Source Audio?

    Nothing for Aftershock.

    plenty for my EQ2 and C4 Synth.
    The manual says something about needing to use a certain hex code. I’ve attempted the MIDI Learn and followed the steps in the manual. All my other messages seem to be getting through just fine. Just this one for channel switching that seems to be throwing me for a loop.

    for the sustain function I’ve been trying to assign external control (envelope) to MIDI with the values for the gate set to low and am hoping to get it to engage (momentary) via one of the switches to allow me to open up the gate for “sustain” and close the gate back to normal when my foot is off.

    I asked this in a different thread and got an answer.

    Hopefully this will help anyone else with the same questions I had.
