Hello Dan,

First post to the Forum.

**** Can you add extra controller Numbers/Functions under the Options/Controllers/Navigation section for each of Left 1,2,3 Right 1,2,3,4 & 2nd Voice - so that I can assign a hardware button for each one that directly selects and highlights the respective track in the Left/Right mixer section*****



I am using vArranger and I like it a lot, particularly combined with my Novation Zero SL Mkii. It is working very well with the LED feedback.



I am using the slide faders to control the track volumes for Left 1,2 & 3 and Right 1,2,3,4 & 2nd Voice.  The first row of buttons under the faders are being used to select Track On/Off so that I can layer sounds. The buttons are showing Left1 On (under the first fader) and Right1 On (under the fourth fader).

I want to use the bottom row of buttons to directly select each Track/Part (Left 1,2,3 or Right 1,2,3,4 & 2nd Voice) so that I can then assign sounds to that particular track.

I have tried to do this using the Options/Controllers function. However there are only controllers for 'Track Select Right' and 'Track Select Left' (these work OK but they select the Right and Left virtual faders over in the Master Fader section - not the Right1 or Left1 Track in the Left/Right mixer section)

Can you add extra controllers under the Navigation section for selecting Left 1,2,3 Right 1,2,3,4 & 2nd Voice so that I can assign a button for each one that directly selects and highlights the respective track in the Left/Right mixer section?

At the moment I have to try and find the mouse and click on the desired Track to select/highlight it.  Once the Track is selected I can then use other buttons to select the desired sound for that Track.

This would then emulate the PART SELECT function on a Hardware Arranger as per the red boxed section on the Tyros5 below




Also there is no controller that allows me to switch between the Right, Left and Left/Right views in the 'My Sounds' section. Again I have to find the mouse and click on it to scroll through the My Sounds views.

It would be very useful that when I select Left1 or Right1, the My Sounds view automatically switches to display My Left or My Right Sounds. e.g. In the image below I have Left1 selected and My Sounds shows the Left Sounds view.


 
regards

Ian

Hello, everybody.
I agree with momboc:

Dan, but not only for Left 1,2,3 Right 1,2,3,4 & 2nd Voice - also can you add extra controller Numbers/Functions under the Options/Controllers/Navigation section for each track: drums, perc, bass and etc.? is it possible to do?

Thanks for you reply!

Hello,

I have added SELECT TRACK 1 to 16 in the Controllers screen.
You can now select every track with separate buttons and get the led feedback too. So you will be able to do like the Tyros, and more....

Sent this new version to momboc and slaveofword to test it.

Hi Dan,

In the list of vArranger controllers, I don't see 16 buttons that allow me to directly select any one of the 16 tracks without the mouse.
I only see for each individual track, the following:  Track On/Off, Track Solo, and Track Volume.  But not Track Select.

When will this be available to everybody please? I only have a 7 inch screen in my organ, and it is much easier to use hardware buttons to do this task of track select as well please.

Brian.

Guten Morgen Wolfgang.

Obwohl ich aus deutscher, britischer und duch Abstammung bin, spreche ich nur Afrikaans und Englisch und nicht Deutsch. Ich hoffe, dass Google Translate diesmal freundlich zu mir sein wird.

 Die Version von vArranger, die ich habe, hat keine Spurauswahl für jede Spur. Ich habe nur "Track Volume", "Track Solo" und "Track On / Off". Ich hätte gerne "Track Select 1", bis "Track Select 16".

Brian.

Dan,

Perhaps you have done this already, and I just don't have the right version.

Can I please get the correct version that also has "Track Select 1", "Track Select 2", "Track Select 3", ..................... "Track Select 16", please.  Those will go as buttons on my Yamaha organ upgrade project.

So each channel will then have the following:

Track Select, Track On/Off, Track Solo, and Track Volume.

Hi Dan,

Thank you, I see you have made some great midi controllers in this new version that you've sent me - all the extra midi controllers that I asked for, plus some ones that I didn't even know I wanted, until I saw them in your list in vArranger.......  I am very excited. I have a midi encoder that can read 320 digital inputs, and 64 analogue inputs.  I am planning on installing my 2nd midi encoder, which has 128 digital inputs, and 128 digital outputs (combined midi encoder and midi decoder).  So I'll be adding LED's where I can.  On my first encoder, I connected the two manuals and the pedal-board.

I'm still busy applying varnish to my project, before I can start installing the buttons, and then the wiring of the buttons with diodes, and rotary and straight faders, and also my Hammond drawbars, can begin.
