MOD SwitchBox 2 - No Midi Learn for Switch...? Only assignable to knobs?

I noticed that the channel selection for the switchbox 2 is only assignable to knobs and foot switch… No Midi Learn.

I was hoping to assign it to my KM Softstep to bypass multiple effects in a chain.

I did find a workaround to using the switch.

I set the Switchbox 2 to the channel 2 as the default.

When this plugin is “off” it sends the signal to channel 1. When I turn it on it goes to channel 2.

It’s not the prettiest but it works for now. I hope we can get midi learn for channel selection. Then we can visually see where the signal is going.

Thanks for listening.

Was just about to post about this! Definitely an issue for me too - thanks for the work-around. I’ll get that implemented ASAP :slight_smile:

The workaround does not work…

I was noticing something wasn’t right…
When the switchbox2 plugin is off it sends a signal to both outputs so it isn’t working as a workaround…
Sorry for the confusion.

I figured that one out too :wink:

So still looking forward to having MIDI learn added to the control options for the switch :slight_smile:

I think that´s a completely necessary thing ! If the team could add a Midi Learn to Switch in the switchbox2 !!

Good news, for 1.2 this will be possible!

If there’s a enumeration-type parameter with exactly 2 scalepoints, it will be possible to use it for MIDI CC.
The parameter will be handled as a toggle (ie >= 64 for 2nd value, < 64 for 1st value).

Any reason this can’t be extended to N points? I.e. for 5 points if (ctl< 25) val=0 else if(ctl<51) val=1 else… etc?
Makes sense to me and would be useful to allow a synth waveform selected by a midi controller.

On a similar note, it would be useful if a multi-level control could be assigned to a foot switch. Then we could have a switch pedal that cycled between n different outputs instead of just two.

I strongly agree with @daniel. However I think it’s better to track this under a separate topic on this forum. I’ve posted one now (auto-linked directly above).
