    Maybe I'm barking up a non-existent tree however is there any way that my DAW app (Digital Performer) can send a MIDI control to a effects processor on the fly?


    Specifically: I have a Lexicon PCM91 connected via MIDI to my MOTU 828 M2 and wish to change patches without having to reach down to the rack to do so. I added the device in Audio/MIDI setup and drew the connections in there. Audio/MIDI setup actually has the Lexicon device built-in so all the patch names are pre-loaded which is really really convenient. Really convenient if I can change them "remotely", that is.


    I tried creating a MIDI device and setting it's output to the Lexicon and the drew in some patch changes but that didn't work.


    If not DP then I have an Oxygen25 - could there be any way to map two buttons to send the appropriate command to the Lexicon? That would be fine, too.


    I appreciate any thoughts about how to do this. Thank you =)

    Nevermind, I had everything set up correctly but it turned out my MIDI port on the 828 is wonky. Drove me nuts because I knew I had it set up right. It wasn't until I tried a different MIDI device to transmit the data that it worked.
