  • Linking patch changes

    I'm doing a show where Im using a TD-20 module and a SPDS quite heavily. I'm going to have one patch per song on each device so Im wondering if I can link the patch changes via MIDI so changing the patch up on the SPDS will also change the TD-20 and vice versa, keeping them in sync? Any help appreciated!

    As long as the kits are the same kit number on each device, that shouldn't be a problem. I do it on my SPD-SX with my TD-50. Midi out of whichever device you'll be pressing the buttons on, midi in on the other and make sure the program change send/receive settings are enabled on each. Sometimes send and receive are separate settings, other times they're grouped together as one setting.

      Great thanks for that! Knew it could be fairly straight forward!

      Just now need to see if I can line up the kit numbers! Having said that, does that need to be the case? I thought that there were separate program changes that just dealt with patch up/down which in my head means it wouldn't matter if both kit numbers were the same??

        There might be but I've never actually tried it any other way. I line them up and then use the kit chain function on the SX to make my set list and it jumps to the correct kit on my 50 whichever order I put the songs in. There may be a simple way around it if you're just going up or down kits, I just haven't used it any other way so couldn't say for sure.
