Title: Sending MIDI from Alcorn McBride + WinScript to Elation Show Designer 2
Post by: Phillip Mazurik on March 06, 2020, 11:08:04 AM
I'm designing a 4D simulation using an Alcorn McBride V16 Pro as the base controller. For the lights, the V16 has MIDI out which I'm sending to an SD2 lighting board. The issue is that the MIDI format is different than most other lighting boards' MIDI (e.g. It uses letters instead of just numbers). Does anyone know any workarounds for this? Particularly if you've had experience using WinScript to program MIDI cues. I don't know if there is a way for the MIDI message to automatically convert to Elation's format or if there is a specific I/O or variable I need to create in WinScript. Any info you all have would be awesome!

Not sure what you're asking about, but the SD2 responds to midi notes as a means to recall scenes that have been programmed into the SD2. You can't actually "talk" to the lights from midi.
