How to configure a map of patches names of my midi device in order to insert program changes from Logic?


Logic Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

You could use a Mapped Instrument object in the environment, which really isn't complicated at all, but it could be a pain in the posterior getting the names in there - I can't see a way of pasting in an entire set of names, which would be pretty handy.

 

There's a section of the manual that deals with that, which is worth a read (and, in my case, probably a second one while I take it in).

That's what I do.  Works like a charm.

And you will need to setup bank change commands for your particular instrument, if it does in fact have several banks of internal patches. Logic comes with a selection of bank change commands, one of them will almost always work.

 

My first copy of Logic came on floppies, two of them I think and was MIDI only, moved up to Logic_Audio at version 3.0 I think.

    A Mapped Instrument object is intended for drum mapping etc, and has no facility for patch names.

     

    The OP needs to look at a Multi-Instrument.

    Ah, yes - you have, as usual, pinned it down !
