Using CC: 113, I find that it’s got a couple shortcomings. I would expect there to be a command that works more like the Select Part and Record switch on the Aeros itself, specifically:
If the Aeros is stopped, sending CC:113 currently will automatically start it. There is a Start command that already does that which I can send if I want. There are times I need to stop Aeros during a song, play a little unaccompanied section, switch the Part via MIDI (1 press) and then start it back up (via a Master Clock). You can do this if you stick to only using the switches on Aeros, but it takes more presses to iterate through all the Parts first.
If Aeros is running, sending CC:113 only gives me the ability to go to the Part in Play mode. I can’t choose the Part and have it go directly to Recording on the next Track. It would even be fine if I could send the command to go to a Part and then use the switch on Aeros to direct it into Record mode before it gets there, but that doesn’t work. Hitting the Record switch on Aeros at this point causes it to abandon changing the Part.
Overall, I can’t find ways to get ahead of actions, I’m forced into going through an extra cycle of the loop, or go through the wrong loop one time, before I’m back on track.
