As I’m developing the V-Control device for this Roland mixer, I have found an irritation.
After I make a change to the device command, I “update command” and “compile”. But for that change to be used, it seems I have to delete the existing device and add it in again. This means I also have to set a channel for it – but it also changes the number assigned after the name. “M200_08” is gone and now I have device “M200_09”. This means all my existing tasks don’t work as they refer to the device “M200_08”. So I have to delete all the tasks and add them in again.
This is irritating right now – but once I start building a real show, I don’t want to have to re-enter 200 plus tasks just because I fixed a bug in my M200 device.
Is there a way around this? Can I force the “_xx” number when I add a device? Is there a way to reload the device from the database without causing the “_xx” number to sequence?
1. Configure -> Edit Device…
This let you edit / change the devices in your current project
2. Configure->Edit Device Template
This lets you edit the devices in the device template database.
If you are developing a driver you should use the first method. In this case it is not necessary to re-import the driver. If you are finished, then you can export the driver and import it to the template database. This makes the driver available for further projects.
