MIDI control issue

I’m trying to set my QC up to be MIDI controlled by a laptop running Logic Pro. I’m only using presets in Setlist 2 (there is also a Setlist 0 - Factory Library and a Setlist 1 - MyPresets), but have issues when trying to address them.

If I already have setlist 2 loaded on my QC I can use CC #43 to change scenes and PC messages to change to different presets. If I don’t have it loaded though and if I understand the manual correctly I would have to send CC #32 - 2 and CC #0 - 0 along with the other two commands from above. This doesn’t work though, it loads (to me) random presets in either setlist 0 or a completely empty preset.

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong and couldn’t find anyone that seemed to have the same problem.

I would try and use a sysex app for PC or MAC or something similar to capture the midi traffic that you are sending. Analyze it and figure out what the QC is receiving or what you think the laptop is sending etc.

Will look into an app like that - never heard of it before. Thanks for the suggestion!!

I had same issue. What I do now us:

First sent the cc#0 command.
Wait 100ms or less (onsong app can only wait minimum 100ms)
Cc#32 command.
And then program change to load the preset.
After that you can choose which mode you want to set the qc

The free MIDI Monitor app works great on macOS to see what’s happening with MIDI.
