The Mastermind GT with the MMGTEditor 9.1 upgrade has solved the problem using the LoopBe1 program. This is the letter that I just sent to Ron Minelli, the developer of the Mastermind GT at www.RJMmusic.com
The vArranger and Triple Play can now be completely controlled with the Mastermind GT Midi Foot Controller. And, I think with out having to touch the computer while playing live with the SD2, etc.
LoopBe1 is showing in both the vArranger and the Triple Play in the same location where the Mastermind used to be. I don't see LoopBe1 in the editor.
Had difficulty running the 9.1 Editor, but then saw your email to run editor through Windows START. Then it loaded. The Editor didn't connect with the Mastermind at first, and I had to experiment a lot by unplugging the Mastermind, then unplugging the USB, etc. And finally it connected.
I was able to control the Triple Play HOLD functions using the single TRIPLE PLAY HOLD button you had set up. In each guitar presets, I can program the patch to HOLD, SUSTAIN etc.; then control that function with the Mastermind HOLD button. If I set the guitar patch up for a HOLD. Then I play a chord on the guitar and immediately after pressing the Triple Play Hold button once and the color changes to black lettering, and can then take my foot off the Mastermind and that chord will endlessly sustain while I solo over that chord. To go to another chord I press the HOLD button and the color changes back to purple and the next chord I play on the guitar and press the HOLD again and the procedure is repeated. This might seem unimportant to you, but this is huge to me. It opens up a lot of doors to explore.
The LOOP from Triple Play is pathetic, and I will probably never use its feature. But it's accessible now with the GT.
The 6 GT guitar presets all function to control the Triple Play.
Then I loaded the vArranger and the GT showed the LoopBe1 in the MIDI IN 3 position.
Before, the dreaded yellow conflict warning would always show when I would exit out of the MIDI window of the vArranger. And the GT wouldn't recognize the vArranger. But, now with the 9.1, I didn't see any conflicts, no yellow warnings.
I can switch back and forth between the vArranger screen and the Triple Play screen seamlessly with no apparent conflicts. I can control the Triple Play while playing live in the vArranger screen. And vice versa.
The vArranger shows no conflicts like before. The LoopBe1 seems to have been the piece of the puzzle you were looking for.
I noticed in the Editor that the Triple Play was connected to the GT via USB, and the vArranger was connected via MIDI. (even though there's no physical midi cable from the GT for the vArranger.) I think that was in the Devices window.
So Ron, in my humble opinion, congratulations are in order. I've only been playing with it for a couple of hours, and found no problems. Nice work.

I just wanted to check in and see if the new editor and LoopBe are working with your programs. Are you now able to run all of your programs at once?
