Snippets

Hi anyone, I'm trying to find a way of switching effects on/off on a vocal channel via MIDI switch, someone suggested using snippets but I don't think snippets can be assigned to midi... I use an X32-Mix rack and would love to use the effects for vocals. If you know how please could you email me as I will never find this post again (I hate the layout of this over complicated forum). Thanks

Yes they can be triggered by MIDI. Send a Program change to channel 2 to recall the snippet. Set one snippet to turn on the Effect and one to turn it off.

Re: Snippets

This is great news... what is the CC's or PC's for this... 

I have an RJM MIDI footswitch which controls my AXE FX and also my Digitech vocal harmoniser rack - I currently use the reverb and delay on it but it sounds shocking... so I'm intending to sent that switch to the X32 I will set to chan 2 but then what?

If you sent Program Change (PC) 0 on channel 2, snippet 0 will load. 

Under Setup: MIDI Control tab you'll have check MIDI In/Out (if you're using the 5 pin DIN connector) and check receive Program Changes. I think you have to allow Scene/Preset Load under Setup: Mixer tab : Confirm Pop-ups (you do for sure for loading scenes).

You also have to create your Snippets.
