Hello there

the subject says it all. I am looking for a generic remote codec with pickup or bidirectional mode. I own a hardware synth that can send and receive midi cc values. I created a custom remote map from the "other" midi controller map and want that either the values are catched and don't jump or when a value is changed in reason the new value should be send to the synth.

Kind regards

Try Koshdukai's Generic Controller MIDI Channel Remote Codec:

Thank you. But Reason doesn't seem to send CC values to MIDI out.

We are talking about two different things here. If your synth would be capable of receive cc values and its encoders, rotaries, faders, sliders, buttons react accordingly, you need no pickup, because everything is in "sync". This is more likely with dedicated Midi controlers, not synth.
Pickup on the other hand is used if you have rotarys that not automaticaly match to the values in the software, like the ones on most synths. But both things are possible with Reasons Remote protocol, but this is not implemented in the "other" codecs as long as I know.
You have to write your own codec, or you have to customize one, like Koshdukai wrote on his webside.

If you take Koshdukais bidirectional version, Reason should send out Midi CCs to the specified port in the remote preferences. The Question is if those are the right ones and how your synth handles the display of incoming CCs.

Pickup Mode is totally possible but requires at least two more functions in the codec.
