When MIDI data needs to be processed in very specific ways the MIDI Solutions Event Processor can often provide the perfect solution. The Event Processor offers 10 settings, each of which can be programmed with a unique MIDI processing function (for 32 settings see the Event Processor Plus). By combining these settings the Event Processor becomes an extremely powerful tool capable of processing MIDI events in almost any way imaginable. The Event Processor can map MIDI events or ranges of MIDI events to other MIDI events, filter MIDI events or ranges of MIDI events, trigger MIDI events, toggle between MIDI events, sequence through MIDI events, scale or crossfade MIDI messages, transpose notes, scale velocities, map to and from System Exclusive, NRPN, Bank Select messages, store incoming values in variables for later use... the Event Processor is like a swiss army knife of MIDI processing products, an indispensable tool in any MIDI musician's arsenal.
The Event Processor works by comparing each incoming MIDI event with each of its 10 settings. When an incoming MIDI event matches a setting, the event is processed according to that setting. By combining different settings for different incoming events, the Event Processor becomes an extremely powerful tool capable of achieving a wide range of MIDI-processing functions.
The Event Processor can perform the following functions:
One of the best ways to learn about these functions is by downloading the MIDI Solutions Programming Tools software, it's quick to install and easy to navigate, and it's free for download, even if you haven't yet purchased the Event Processor. Spending a few minutes clicking on the different options is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with the Event Processor. The Programming Tools software also contains lots of example files that demonstrate the many applications of the Event Processor. For a more in depth look of everything the Event Processor has to offer read the Guide to the Event Processor and Event Processor Plus by Bruce Wahler of Ashby Solutions, this comprehensive guide explores in detail the amazing tasks these products are capable of!
The Event Processor is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages (read the Programming FAQs for more details). This is easily done with the MIDI Solutions Programming Tools software. Once programmed, the Event Processor's settings are retained even after power is removed. The Event Processor can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.
The Event Processor is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products (for more information read the Power FAQs). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
