Quick MIDI mute toggle

Post by Laurensss » Tue Apr 04, 2017 4:34 am

Hi, I want to request one of the following:
  • a button in the interface (and/or shortcut key/pianokey) to toggle the MIDI volume to mute and back, or
  • separate volume sliders for MIDI volume and demo piano
There reason is that I much prefer to listen to the sound generated by my own piano when I'm playing (so piano volume in PGS = 0) but now and then I need the demo feature (which needs piano volume set to a high value). This is a lot of clicking to use the demo feature and go back again. On iPad it is even worse.

I think the second suggestion (have separate sliders for MIDI input and piano demo) would be the most elegant.

If you have a reliable way of sending MIDI to my piano to have it play the demo with its built in sounds - even better. But that sounds like a nice to have.

I'd love to see something like this as well.

I usually play with headphones in, where I would want to have the piano muted and have the app make the piano sounds. However, I'll occasionally want to take off the headphones and play for my wife, where I'd rather have the app piano playback muted. Right now this is a bit of a chore.

Yes, PLEASE add a MIDI mute toggle button or pulldown menu item!

Like many here I prefer my own piano sound, but often want to hear a demo of a new piece I am unfamiliar with.

Going into settings, then into volume settings, then dragging a slider--every time you want to mute or unmute the built-in piano--is really annoying and a bad user experience.
