MIDI controller assignment option to access the selected / edited track

I plan to set up a bank of external dials for faster editing of all sound parameters. While all controller assignments are currently directly tied to one specific track, it would be way more useful during the creation process if the assignments would follow the selected/edited track. There is probably need for both options, ideally in form of two independent maps for all assignments of a song which can be switched, one direct (e.g. for a performance to access specific parameters of different tracks), the other following the track focus (better for sound design during the composition process).

    +1 this feature would really help with external midi control. I'd love to get a BCR2000 to replace the menu diving on the Deluge, and this would allow the current track to be edited, but would need the Deluge to fire out the CCs whenever you change track to ensure the LED encoders show the correct values.

    I agree with Myrk that feedback (for hardware controllers with LED rings or alike) would be desirable too – in both cases.

    Not only for cc, also just for notes.

    I'd like to have 1 global midi keyboard/controller that lets you play the selected track.

    When knobs/faders are mapped of this "global" controller, it should be a "generic" link, which means that it applies only to the selected track and only when the destination is the same/comparable (so same control for all internal synths or for all midi tracks with a specific/kits midi channel)

    Yes, absolutely! This should work for all channel messages. Thanks for pointing it out!

    +1 Should be option to switch between direct (current behavior) and focused (proposed behavior).

    I like that wording! The Setting Menu should provide an addition:
    MIDI > MAP > DIREct or FOCUsed
    Perfect!

    I bought external MIDI keyboard plugged in and... was shocked this obvious, common behaviour is not supported. Haven't expected this. For now its unusable..

    After thinking about this more, I suggest not to implement this as two modes of operation (as suggested above, prematurely ;-), but as two distinct learn modes, so that you could for example assign some controls as a mixer (vol, pan, reverb, maybe EQ, etc.) and other controls for sound editing (Osc, LFO, filter, ADSRs, etc) of the selected/edited track, and use them simultaneously!
    That would be clearly preferable for both, composition and live performance. It also simplifies to ensure backward compatibility: Existing assignments are direct, new assignments could be either direct, or following the selected/edited track.

    Any rumors or confirmation that something solving this problem will be included in v2.1?
    Hoping to be surprised.

    Waiting.. so far its not on beta. I have 2 midi keyboards none of them has ability to quickly select midi channel. It's a game stopper I haven't expected when ordered Deluge.

    +++ This is my only major gripe with the Deluge, perhaps with the new usb host funtionality it will been on the cards as more and more people face dissapointment with their shiny new midi controllers!

    Just got the Deluge and I couldn't believe it can't focus the midi note inputs to what you are working on! This is almost a deal killer for me, as was planning on using it live.

    Yeah I actually bought a roland a-49 to be able to easily switch midi channel, but still would love to be able to set a “master

    If this doesn't get fixed in the next update mine will be up for sale on Reverb.
