Bear with me as this is hard to explain in text.
I’m using an FCB1010 to control my BB for praise and worship playing, allowing me to jump directly from say part 1 to part 4 of a song via a transition. In this case, the BB will play the transition that follows part 1, and then go to part 4.
Part 1 beat → post-Part 1 transition → Part 4 beat
In other words, a transition is linked to the part of the song that it follows. And so if I instead went from part 2 to part 4, I’d get a different transition
Part 2 beat → post-Part 2 transition (different one) → Part 4 beat
However in many cases it would be better for the BB to consider a transition to be linked to the part of the song that it precedes, so that every time you to go to a certain part of a song, it gets there via the same transition.
Part 1 beat → pre- Part 4 transition → Part 4 beat
Part 2 beat → pre- Part 4 transition (same one) → Part 4 beat
This would be particularly useful in e.g. song parts that are for a solo that needs a strong build before it, or for an acapella section that needs drums to cut out before hand, or for a time signature change… or whatever other situation where you need a particular kind of transition beforehand irrespective of where you were in the song just before.
Is there a way to do this with current firmware? I can program as much MIDI as needed but can’t see relevant commands in the guide.
Alternatively, do we need a global option that would mean that a transition between parts x and y of a song can be interpreted as preceding y rather than following x?
Grateful for ideas/guidance.
