I will like to have XS in song or pattern mode with songs/ patterns in sequence (without data) just with splits and layers.

What I want is to have MainStage send messages to XS to change in sequence ...(song one then two the three etc)

Is this possible?

thanks much

Songs/Patterns are selected on an XS via a MIDI System Common Song Select message.

The Song Select message is comprised of two bytes.
First, the Status Byte…
1) F3 in hex (or 243 decimal)

That’s followed by a Data Byte, the Song Number…
2) 00~7F in hex (0~127 decimal)
For the XS, with 64 Songs max, it’s 00~3F in hex (0~63 decimal)

For example…
F3 00 will select the first Song.
F3 20 selects Song 33.

System Common messages are independent of MIDI Channel.

The same message is used to select Pattern number.

If MainStage 3 can’t directly send a Song Select message, then see posts by EricMonroe, and my replies to them, in this thread:
