suspend MIDIOutputController

hello again,

I would like to know if there could be a way to temporarily "deactivate" the MIDIOutput Controller, in order to suspend the transmission of control changes.

is that possible?

peace and thanks.

MIDIOutputController should send data to the output only when there is a change in the Value field. So maybe you could add an on/off button to the Sound or EventValue in the Value field, something like:

!Amp * !On

so when !On is zero, there are no changes to be transmitted.

Or, even better, use trackAndHold: so something like

!On trackAndHold: !Amp

cool, the "trackAndHold" solution is working for me. first one is not working because when I toggle !On the control change value is set to 0 and I don't want it.
