Fsynthz has released Prognum, a free VSTi MIDI processing utility for Windows.
Prognum is suited for the two purposes:
- Indicating current MIDI program IN BIG NUMBERS (both the 1-128 value and grouped by 8).
- Browsing MIDI programs of a subsequent synth up and down using one single button, assignable to any MIDI controller (examples are: sustain pedal #64, portamento switch #65). Short hit on the button is one program up, long hit (>1 sec) - one down.
Two synths (two channels) may me managed with one instance of Prognum.
The second processing tract (shown in red numbers) features responsibility to the program-changing button on all channels - while sending the resulting MIDI program change message to the chosen (destination) channel only. So the user does not have to switch the MIDI keyboard to the second MIDI channel to send a program change to the second synth (e.g. a groovebox).
