Unfortunately the internal preset system of a third party plugin that i use isn't accessible for MIDI mapping. So i just figured out i could use Mainstages own plugin preset handling. I need to control the "next preset" and "previous preset" buttons in the generic plugin header via MIDI, but to my surprise it doesn't show up anywhere as a possible mapping target, nor can i just use program change messages. Neither for built in nor for third party plugins.

I know in Logic the preset changing is easily accessible for MIDI, so why isn't it in Mainstage?


Changing presets would be way more efficient than adding tons of extra patches or sets that complicate the whole concert, so i am happy about any advice.
