Can't find a simple patch/program changing Application for OS X High Sierra

(1/2) > >>

DieHard:
OK, I am going to stray way off topic here, but at this point I am desperate.  Logic Pro X has some serious issues with patch changing on external synths... so

Does anyone know of a simple application that can send MIDI bank/program changed to external Synths (kinda like OMS for OS X);

I do NOT want to send Sysex patch info., I just want to audition sounds without manually turning the data wheels on my roland rack stuff, so a simple MIDI patch/program change app is what I need for OS X 10.13

IIO:
you mean a graphic slider for midi program change?

...the logic enviroment?

I already created all synths in the Logic environment, with all banks and patches for (2) JV880s, (1) XV-5050, and (2) U22s; the issue is Logic is very buggy these days (ver 10.3.x and 10.4.x) and even simple things like muting and solo-ing external MIDI devices have issues.  However, the logic "external plugin" with auto audio routing works almost perfectly, but you do not have the choice for program changes when using it... so I need a separate app to do my program changes.  I found an app called "Pocket MIDI" that looks promising, but I really need one that I can make custom patch names, not just program numbers, but I will try pocket MIDI tonight as a test

IIO:
bank select can be a bitch, there are dozens of ways how you need to do it for certain instruments. but program change is in theory nothing special.

there are various utils like that, but they dont do banks.

patch names is a sysex job i.e. it is different for every device.

There is some reasons why people use Mac OS 9  ;)
