Any issues with using a MM with a midi pacthbay/merger? I just purchased a MM but after spending time on this forum I’m not convinced I’m ready to go down the road of trying to use it to control other midi devices/pedals simultaneously, at least not yet in its current state of development and given what I read here about the IOS app in its current state. Anyway I also purchased a Morningstar MC6 MK II to control the other devices in my MIDI setup and plan on using a midi merger to connect both the MC6 and the Mideo Mestro to a merger/patchbay. Setup this way the hope is I can just use the Midi Maestro to do the floor pedal basics it does by default to control the Areos and beat buddy and use the MC6 to send program change messages, etc. to all of the midi pedals which I have connected to the patchbay.
Has anyone tried this type of configuration and if so is their any reason the Midi Maestro would not work this way to strictly do its thing with the Aero’s and beat buddy but also be capable of receiving overall program/preset/song change messages from a midi pedal controller device like a morning star MC6.
I have been doing this kind of midi merging for years with multiple controller devices so I would not expect their to be an issue but I don’t want to make any assumptions with the Midi Maestro. Hopefully in the near future and after becoming more familiar with the MM I may be able to just completely rely on it as a sole controller and i can remove the MC6 from the setup but for now I’m going to try and see if it will play nice with the other controller.
