Using various configurations of Mobius, each complete Midi-control and Track config loaded from a single saved file...
I am trying to save and later load completely different configurations of Mobius, so that I can simply use one configuration for one looper piece and then load a different configuration for the next piece. I’m using Windows 7.
Load and use Midi Setup/Track-Sync Setup A
- A specific Midi-command setup for FCB1010 (Midi Command Setup A)
- A specific track and sync setup: 8 tracks, no sync, each independent (Track-Sync A)
Instantly Load and use Midi Setup/Track-Sync Setup B
- A completely different Midi-command setup for FCB1010 (Midi Setup B)
- A track and synch setup with Copy-timing/Sync to Loop/etc (Track-Sync B)
So far as I can tell, the Midi setup is saved in one place and the track-sync setup in another place, with some data saved to the XML. Which is to say, it seems that Mobius saves various parts of itself in various places, which makes it difficult if not impossible to do quick-loads of complete configurations.
Right now my solution is to have a Mobius-Master Directory (the registry install directory) which I work out of, with my various configurations saved in separate directories (MobiusA, MobiusB, etc) and then I use a DOS batch file to delete the contents of the Master directory and copy the contents of MobiusA or MobiusB or whatever so that I have a complete configuration that is available with a single keystroke.
Does anyone have a better solution to this? I’ve read large parts of the manual, but saving everything as a single file seems impossible: one must save configurations and midi control settings and projects all separately, as they seem to be various parts of the whole.
I’ve thought of trying to create a registry key for each version of Mobius that I can instantly load to point Mobius to a new directory, but I’ve not figured out how to do that. Another thought was to create a variable that points the Mobius registry location to a different directory, but so far I’ve not been able to figure that out either. The batch file seems, so far, to be the simplest way to quickly load fully different configurations of Mobius 2.5.
Any help or suggestions or thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
