Thanks for chiming in Burkhard
What about the "Controller, Value"? I tried that method, and it moves to the correct Performance, but only waits for input to select the slot. No matter how I set the "System settings" for perf.load, I can't get it to choose default slot 1, or keep slot. Only "Pending" works.
CC# 47 works exactly as described in the Main Manual. It is dedicated to "Pending". In order to immediately load a Slot the combination of bank select LSb and program change is available.
From the Main Manual table:
Values 0-124 preload Performance 1-125, if “Performance Load” is set to “Pending”. One of the CCs #50-54 then loads one of the Slots, if this Slot is enabled.
