Next or previous scene selector via MIDI foot controller

Hello,

I'm using an Xsonic Airstep as MIDI controller for Scene selection within Maschine. Via Edit - MIDI change in Maschine I was able to trigger the individual scenes via Program Change configuration where PC number 0 runs Scene 1, PC number 1 runs Scene 2 and so on from the Xsonic Airstep. I combine this with the Scene Sync/Retrigger option in the Header and this works nicely. The disadvantage is that I need a lot of controllers buttons to match all the scenes in a single song.

I was wondering if there is a possibility to use a single MIDI trigger for the next scene and a MIDI trigger for the previous scene so I only need 2 buttons in total to switch between scenes in whatever song I'm playing.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Wouter

    Does the airstep have Increment/Decrement functionality?

    @Blindeddie thanks for your reply! I wasn't aware that some MIDI controllers have this feature and it would indeed solve the issue. I checked the manual/forum of Xsonic and I couldn't find any info on that feature. I will ask their support if it is on the roadmap.

    Grtz,

    @Blindeddie I received feedback from Xsonic, the increment/decrement function will be available in the next major firmware update.

    Grtz,
