Question for the hardware synth people

Post by pjano » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:46 am

Hi! Has anyone come across a device that would allow to save an image along with the audio? Let me explain: I have a hardware synth with no preset saving option. I am taking therefore a photograph of the synth panel in order to remember the settings of the synth. I would like to be able to store the image somehow in the liveset so that I can recall it if needed at a later stage. I know this is just a minor thing but it would be super cool if something like that would be available. Does anyone know of such a device or plugin? Or maybe You have another strategy on how to easily recall your favourite settings on your old gear.
Thank You
Piotr

Have you looked at M4L devices ? There might be one for your synth - with pre mapped CCs that you can save and resend to your synth.
What synth is this ?

Yes, I am aware of some M4L devices that allow to store the presets. I had one for my Juno 106 but in the end it was always an issue, because it was jumping back to some preset on the synth for some reason. I was just thinking that theoretically this might be possible similar to a notepad that is I think in Cubase.
The closest I could find is this:

I save photos into the Live project folder.
