Midi Program Changes

asked Mar 14, 2017 in Studio One 3 by twosailz (250 points)
Is there a way to link songs that are listed on the Song page together so that they play in a specified sequence (i.e. a set) which will allow the midi program changes to be transmitted?  

I use Presonus S3 Pro and would like to have the ability to send midi program changes when using the Projects page.  I currently load the songs I am going to use for my gig into a projects page (i.e. set 1, set 2, etc.).  With each song I have a program change to drive an external guitar effects processor and also a vocal processor.  When I play the songs from the Song page, everything works as it should.  I play the song and the guitar and vocal units respond to the requested midi program change.  However, when I load these same songs into a Projects page, the midi program changes don't work.  It would be great if the songs loaded into the Projects page would be allowed the send the midi program change requests.  Thank you.

Not currently possible.  Songs in the Project page are references to the song for the audio mix, not live Studio One multi-track songs.  When you play from the Project page you are playing the audio files being assembled there, nothing midi.
