How To/Feature Request

Hi,

I would like to get the actual values of the presets on the bcr2000.

Ex: knob 1 is by default 64, i changed it to 96.

is there a way to receive the values of the overall bcr2000?(Receive all data?)

The purpose is to update all value from a template preset, in order to be able to switch between song without having to set back the value from my synthetizer manually. it also serve as device backup in case of loose of the device memory. you can set back the device parameter via the archived preset.

Thanks in advance,

Have a good day,

Rgds,

The BCF2000 and BCR2000 can perform the so-called "Send Snapshot" operation.
This sends the current values of all buttons/encoders(/faders) of the current preset.
There are several ways to trigger this operation:

The simplest way is to hold the EDIT button, then press the "< PRESET" button.
However, this only works if these buttons haven't been redefined as "normal" buttons in the current preset.

It's also possible to make the BCF/BCR send a preset's snapshot whenever the preset gets selected. See sections 13.2 and 19.3 of B-Control MIDI Implementation.pdf (BCMI).

Furthermore, a connected MIDI device can order a BCF/BCR to perform Send Snapshot by sending a Request Snapshot command to the BCF/BCR. (This command is mentioned in section 6.1 of BCMI.)
In fact, BC Manager uses this command for its "Receive snapshot" operation, which is available from the B-Controls window (via both the "MIDI" pull-down menu and the toolbar).

For further discussion, see:

  • question 10 in section 34 of the BC Manager manual.
  • section 23 (in particular 23.4) of BCMI.

Hope this helps,
  Mark.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the answer.
Will look at these informations

I was looking for something like the receive/send all preset function but only for values...
