Device Overview

Name/Version: OH Display 1.1
Author: moss  
Description: Displays a window with 128 slots if it receives a midi program change. The slot with the matching program number is also selected. The window automatically hides itself after some seconds if it does not receive another program change. Use this plugin to have a kind of overhead display for selecting sounds.

1. Put the plugin in front of a VST plugin which reacts to program changes.
2. Click the Edit Patch Names button
3. Enter the names of the sound in the slots (double click a slot with the mouse to edit). This must be done by hand because the Live API does not support to read the VST patch names from a plugin (if you know of a way please tell me).
4. Alternatively you can load the names from a text file (one name at per line).

Note: You can also use the OHDisplay with a rack.

1. Put the OH Display plugin in front of the rack
2. Put the Dial To Program Change (see below) in front of the OH Display plugin
3. Wrap the 2 plugins and the rack into a new rack
4. Double map a controller knob of the new rack to the Program # knob of the Dial To Program Change plugin and to the Chain selector of the rack
5. Map the controller knob to your midi controller
