Re: Wheres the Gordius Forum?

I don't know about any Gordius forum but there is a very helpful
mailing list at Yahoo Groups. Yes, you can do most things with most
programming classes so which class you prefer is more a question about
using the leds on the Gordius for indication. I can't answer your
other questions 'cause I don't use songs and all that. I make up all
"MIDI event bunches" I need in the Prests window and then I go to the
Banks window to make up alternate banks to match different rigs I'm
using. But only one bank changes; the bank that handles sound patches
on either the laptop or the Fractal Audio amp. My other seven banks
all send MIDI notes for Moibus and stays the same in all banks. Three
expression pedals also stays the same (although pedal #3 is a wha-wha
on the Fractal Audio but a Tremolo Speed Shifter for effect return on
the laptop).
