First time poster here.
I'm considering buying an Organelle to serve as a backing track machine. Have been looking at the Midi File Sampler/Synth patches - I think they'll do close to what I need.
I want to load in a number of MIDI files (one for each song - each contains Note Data, CC commands, NRPNs & patch changes across many MIDI channels) and play it back, with a metronome in my ears. The songs feature time signature changes so the click would need to keep up with that.
For some context: we're a two-piece band. Lots of looping, firing samples, whilst paying guitar and singing. I have a drummer but he just drums. The laptop presses loop pedals when I don't have any hands free, controls the lights over DMX via MIDI, fires off the odd sample, and changes patches for me. All to a click so we stay in time.
Do you guys who know that patch well think that it'll do what I need, or with some modification in Pd, could it suffice?
Really what's important is that the MIDI capability is already there - I don't want to by digging into the MIDI spec and programming stuff like NRPNs from scratch.
