I was playing around with a basic preset to send patch change messages. I created some virtual controls because I wanted to select the bank and patch before retrieving the actual patch (rather than continually send bank/patch CC messages).
I noticed that when I created 2 virtual faders and set their parameter number to be the same, there was some strange interaction between them. When I moved one the other also changed value. After changing their parameter numbers to be different, the interaction went away. Since the controls were virtual, initially I didn’t care about the parameter number because I was using a script to get and store the values.
So, my question is – can I created two of the same controls with the exact same type and parameter number or is that a bad thing? (for example, a “get current patch” button on 2 or more pages that sends the exact same message and has the same parameterNumber)
What makes a control uniquely identifiable in the ElectraOne system?
