Gig Performer 3.x User Manual

A song part consists of a rackspace and variation, plus a collection of properties. The variation may be as stored, or it may have been edited just for that song part. Songs are mostly assemblies of song parts.

Advanced: Extra MIDI messages to send. For each song part, you can specify an arbitrary sequence of MIDI events to be injected into any MIDI In or MIDI Out block. Enter MIDI messages as hexadecimal values, decimal values, or a combination of both. Plugins can be addressed in this field by preceding the MIDI messages with a plugin’s OSC/GPScript handle, if it has one assigned. Similarly, MIDI messages can be directed to a specific external MIDI device by preceding the MIDI messages with external MIDI device’s name.
