How to cycle through a range of values sent to a CC# in Standalone Mode?

Postby irongiant14 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 8:43 pm

Hi. I am trying to write modlines for the Strymon Iridium and could use some help figuring out how to cycle through a range of values sent to a CC# in Standalone Mode. From what I read elsewhere on this forum, regarding the Strymon Timeline, you could use a Counter to cycle through settings. https://forum.keithmcmillen.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=621&hilit=range

I’m not familiar with the Counter, since I have been operating solely in Standalone Mode to control two Eventide H9s and the manual says the Counter only works in Hosted Mode. Is there a way to cycle and wrap values in a range in Standalone mode, too?

I’d like to use separate SS2 keys to:

  • cycle through the Iridium’s three Amps
  • cycle through the Iridium’s nine Cab IRs. (I’m not sure how this is going to work in practice, since the Iridium breaks these IR’s into subsets of three for each amp. I might need to separate these into one set of three, per amp?)
  • cycle through the Iridium’s three Room reverb sizes

I wrote a modline that kind of works but not as I hoped. I think I need a message with defined steps, not the fine increments of Y Increment. My modline for the Cab switching key goes:

SOURCE: Y Increment. –> GAIN: 1.00 –> OFFSET: 0 –> TABLE: Linear.–> MIN: 0 MAX: 8 SMOOTH: 0 –> MSSGE TYPE: CC –> CC# 20 –> CH: 3 –> OUTPUT PORT: SS Expander


Here are the IRIDIUM MIDI SPECS I’m working with:

PARAMETERS.....CC#........RANGE.......NOTES

Amp..................19..........1-3............Round. Chime. Punch.

Cab...................20..........0-2............(Round a, b, c)
.........................20..........3-5............(Chime a, b, c)
.........................20..........6-8............(Punch a, b, c)

Thanks for any assistance you can lend.

Unfortunately, this is not possible in Standalone mode.
You could try using y Inc with the speed set really low to make it cycle less quickly, but it won't wrap.
