I'm using a Yamaha RM1X sequencer remixer that let's you load tracks that each contain one or more midi notes. There are 16 tracks in a "section" and during playback more or more of the tracks can be unmuted (or played). This is perfect for loading a sequence of channels and triggering specific global effects from preprogrammed sections.
The problem with this setup is that in Resolume when a global effect is triggered by a midi note, if the same note is sent a 2nd time, the effect is cleared. Since all tracks in the RM1x LOOP during playback (very common in sequencers and in many cases you want to cycle the same channels or effect sequence), if you are simply loading a single effect into a slot, the next loop turns off the effect - not so good.
I'm wondering (hoping) if someone knows a workaround for this where I can trigger an effect and keep sending the same midi note without turning off the effect. Perhaps there is something in the midi spec I am missing. I am using various channels to expand the number of effects I can trigger. I also tried the midi note toggle (148) but it sends a 00 the second time, then the note, then 00 etc., not so useful.
Or perhaps the next version of Resolume should allow the effect to be triggered more than 1x and clear only if an explicit clear effect is sent.
Thanks for reading this and responding with any insights! Kosho
