Hi! I’ve finally gotten Photon 2 fully integrated in my stage setup, with bandhelper sending bank changes via PC messages to a Morningstar MC6 midi foot controller on song change. From there, the MC6 is programmed to send CC messages to Photon 2! I do have some extra use cases for sending CC messages to Photon 2 from Bandhelper as well! Kudos to a great implementation so far!
Any plans to implement channel filtering (listen channel) on the inbound midi messages? Listening on all channels is fine with a limited number of midi-controlled devices, however in more complex systems, it can be an issue.
This is a network diagram of my current setup:
I have CC messages being sent from Bandhelper to the Stomp XL, the Morningstar and Photon 2 on separate channels, but all routed through the Stomp XL, then the Morningstar. Without the ability to limit Photon 2 listening to a specific channel, I’ll very soon experience some overlap in global CC commands. I can likely work around this with the midiflow app on the same iPad as Photon, ensuring that only channel 2 data is forwarded to Photon, however it would be great if it could be done within Photon 2!
Update: I’m already running into the issue with a CC4 command.
