MidiDjConsole.ProfileRangeMidiCommandSet method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Sets parameters of the short MIDI command specific for a range control item (slider, rotary knob or Jog wheel) stored inside the profile. Current parameters of the short MIDI command can be obtained through the MidiDjConsole.ProfileRangeMidiCommandGet method.


A short command is sent to the instance of the component by the DJ Console when a physical range control is moved on the DJ Console.

The short MIDI command is composed of 3 bytes combining 4 elements:


One byte composed by the code of the MIDI Command, typically a "Control change" (hex B0) on the more significant 4 bits and by the MIDI channel on the less significant 4 bits.
One first byte of MIDI "Data", usually indicated as "Data1", representing the code of the physical control which was moved.
One second byte of MIDI "Data", usually indicated as "Data2", representing the value reported by the moved physical control.


When setting the short MIDI command specific for a control range item, only the Data1 field is important while the Data2 field, being variable, can be ignored.


The combination of MIDI command parameters is usually defined inside the technical specifications of the physical DJ Console and may vary a lot depending upon the DJ Console in use.


For further details about interfacing with MIDI DJ Consoles see the MidiDjConsole object section and the How to manage MIDI DJ consoles tutorial.
