yes, i thought about something like that.
but technically, the disctinction is negligible, because, according to MIDI specs, bank change message is anyway a CC with certain number.
(actually, two CCs — one for MSB & another for LSB, but can be done with just one of them, assuming another is always constant, because i doubt i'll ever have more than 128 banks, which are 16384 patches totally, on a single Axoloti, even for FM sounds )
a start patch is needed anyway. my start patch does MIDI thru, so i'll just add patch selecting function to it.
actually, why not?
i can have two versions of every patch — with custom Launchpad Pro note layout embedded into the patch and without it. since LP Pro is my primary input device, and sometimes i want one Axoloti to do it all — MIDI & audio — it will be convenient.
