Hi.
I'm trying to use peerState in a sort of live jamming situation where i skip between snapshots using a knob on a midicontroller. What I would need is a button that can decide when to activate the new snapshots. As it is now every little spin activates the snapshots so if I want to go from snapshot nr 2 to nr 7 i have to activate nr 3,4,5,6 before i go to nr 7. It would also be easier to time the activation of the new snapshots with a button. Is this at all doable?

if there are other workarounds I'd be happy to receive them.
I guess i could make patterns in peerstate containing the different snapshots and activate them via pac's patternist but patternist is not really complete and pac hasn't been replying for years. Jeskola Live could also be used this way i suppose if the midicontrol was there.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Any suggestions appreciated!

/A

There's probably a sneaky peer way of doing it. If there is, tinga might know something.

I can't go fiddling with PeerState just now, too many other things to think about. Don't worry though, the cavalry is coming. ;)

Each snapshot corresponds to a midi key you might press instead of using a controller.

help file wrote:
The MIDI support in PeerState works as follows:

When a MIDI note is pressed, the corresponding numbered snapshot is restored and set as current. For example, a press on "Middle C" will call up snapshot number 60.
In addition, a note may be chosen (in the attributes) to act instead as a "store snapshot" key.


At first you have to right-click on peer state and enable midi channel(s). In the snapshot manager you can see, which snapshot corresponds to which midi key.

Ha, I forgot it responds to MIDI. I've never had much need for PeerState but it's a powerful tool. :oops:

Thanks for the tip!
When I have better control over Lua/Hidmacros I will be able to navigate between open windows in a controlled way so I think this can work.

Thoke, i fail to pull off the midistunt. What can I be doing wrong? I have the virtual keyboard up and running but I can't make it send signals to Peerstate.

If i would like to run three different peerstatemachines in one song I would have to use 3 virtual keyboards right?

Probably you lost focus of midi (you can lock a certain machine to receive midi in the upper right drop-down). To avoid this, enable midi input on the peer machines. Now all machines will receive midi on the specified channel(s).

Or you simply are in the wrong octave on your midi keyboard.
Here the peer snapshots start at C-2 = C minus 2 !!!

No, simply use different snapshots for the different peer states and enable the same midi-in channel for all peer machines.
I attached an example, where the first three snaps are changing the infector sound (C-2,C#-2,D-2) and
snaps 7 and 8 (G-2,G#-2) change the sound of qsamo.

Thank you for that superpedagogic explanation!
Look forward to try it out.

Despite your pedagogic explanation I fail to pull it off.

I have set Peerstate to accept midi on all channels
i have clicked in the upper corner of the screen to pull out the virtual keyboard and set it to "Peer state" (if this matters)
I have made sure that i press the right keys on the keyboard that correspond to the saved state? ( or, i tried all of them)

what can i have missed?
I do manage to get sounds from other machines in the track like Qsamo so something works...

Also, would it be possible to send keypress on my midicontroller to the peerstae in some way, like [midikey > peerctrl> IX-split > peerstate] ?
