Is it possible to have the bcr receive values from daw upon preset selection?

Basically my question is as posted in the subject line.

I use Plogue Bidule 64bit and it fully supports 14bit midi as well as parameter feedback.

When I start Bidule, all currently connected encoders and buttons on my two bcr change values to whatever I last saved as my default patch in Bidule.

Is there a way to have the bcr's request from the host all current positions of learned/feedbacked parameters?

I'm unsure how to understand what exactly 'messages sent on preset selection' settings in BC Manager do and if those would help with this.

 

Any help appreciated. :)

Upon preset selection on the bcr's, that is... forgot to add that.

Hi
the BCR can output a midi message when a patch is selected on the unit to trigger something in Bidule.
It is programmed into the patch.

The BC can only use certain messages (not sysex) for feedback (setting the values of the encoders / buttons).
There is a way to, sort of, get around this by combining your message with a CC in easypar.
You will need to be able to get Bidule to take its value (say in a sysex message) and output a CC message with
that value to the BC.

Hope this helps

What you wrote sounds interesting. However, I just (re-)noticed that with parameter feedback already working and not turning the bcr's off, when switching presets the last settings sent from Bidule stay for the session. So for my purposes that should be enough for now.

Thanks though! :)
