Controlling the stack on SmartFade ML with ProPresenter


I'm attempting to use the program ProPresenter with the MIDI Module to send notes to a SmartFade ML to change the step of the stack. Notes are definitely being sent and received by the light board (lights are changing) but I am unsure of what notes to use to change the stack? It seems that no matter what note I use in propresenter, all I can do is click one of the 24 bump buttons on the board. The midi module in propresenter allows you to send a Midi Note On/Off command and set the following parameters: Channel (1-16); Note (0-127); Intensity (0-127). I am just confused about what those parameters correspond to for the SmartFade. I've read the Midi section in the manual and am still confused.

I'd just like to know how to advance the stack on step if that's possible.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

  • We use an iMac and I have succeeded in figuring out how to step through the stack because regular midi notes just turn on memories with no fade. Maybe I'm missing something. The way I did it I only control advancing the stack. I used a USB to midi converter and set up the midi linking the iMac to send PP6 midi to the USB converter. I had to download a program called Midi Pipe to change the PP6 Midi Note to a Program Change message. Program Change 125 is the Go button of the stack. Then in PP6 I add the midi note 125 w/intensity 1 or greater to what ever slide I what to fire the next cue in the stack. The SFML midi setting is midi channel.
  • Thank you! That program is probably exactly what I was looking for! I'll give it a shot later
