Hi,

I have a Yamaha DTXpress iv that can send midi program change messages and EZdrummer support this.
So far so good.

What I cannot find is any info on how to set it up.

The Yamaha manual is quite informative but states that information about the following must come from the host program (EZdrummer):

Program Change number (001-128) + Bank Select MSB and LSB (000-127).

What I want to do it shift between some of our own presets.

When messing around I've not been able to get this to work.

Any one knows the right settings or can point me in the direction to where these settings can be found?
The program number and bank select MsB/LSB numbers for user presets is what I need.

Cheers 🙂

The basic system is that you choose EZX with the Bank Select.
Then you choose a particular preset for that EZX with the
Program Change.

Within this system you would think of the User Presets
as another EZX. So, to activate one of your own presets
You first have to select the 'User Preset Bank' by selecting
the bank that would come after the last EZX or you can
just select a User Preset from the GUI first. Then you
use Program Change to select among your presets.

Thanks Olle for the quick responce.
I got a better idea now how to set it up:

Use Bank Select (either MSB or LSB) to choose User Presets bank - and then use Program Change to choose which preset from that bank.

Thanks ?

I am resurrecting this topic because I am still lost in this regard...

I thought that regular midi compliant devices and software would use specific MSB and LSB numbers......no...??
would Superior drummer 2.0 be able to receive msb/lsb and program changes?
on all 16 midi channels?

Superior 2 has no support for this at all. EZdrummer 2 and EZkeys have support.

Don't know exactly what you are thinking of. Midi Program Change is a single value
0 - 127. The Bank Select is really CC0 and as such could possibly have a 'fine tune'
in CC32, but I doubt it is in much use.
