key to select prev next preset?

    hello everybody, i just started using rakarrack and i must say i am most impressed.

    the current state of the software (0.5.8) i'm seeing is well above average and, i must confess, expectations.

    i'm in the process of building a foot pedal out of a USB keyboard wich i will gut and rewire to a few switches, the project was going to be mostly for ableton live and/or guitar rig 4 (max msp/puredata where options too)…

    however, since trying Rakarrack (and seeing that keys 1-10 are already mapped to keyboard keys) i decided to add a few buttons (from the planned 8 in two four-button-rows)  to maybe 12 buttons

    My main concern is: is there an easy way of mapping the previous/next preset button to the keyboard?

    hopefully there is, or else i hope it's easy to implement (compared to some of the stuff you guys have already done!!!)

    many thanks for a wonderful piece of software.

    i hope i could contribute some code sometime

    Hi ..

    I was think that what you request is really interesting …. then I added  the "+" "-" keys and the Numeric KeyPad ones  to handle the preset counter … :-)

    You can get our git version … wich has more effects and some more features than 0.5.8 :-)

    Hi everybody.

    First, congratulations for your work and thank you for your decision to share it.

    I'm a guitarist and my intention is to do some lives with an acoustic guitar and both Rakarrak and SooperLooper.

    In order to do this, I'm using some USB pedal keys, and I need to set the same pedals to change track in SooperLooper, and to change preset in Rakarrack.

    The problem is that the "+" and "-" keys are the only keys that SooperLooper can't learn, so I was wondering if there's a way to change shortcuts in Rakarrack, since at the moment there's not an easy way to make it "learn" shortcuts by GUI.

    I'm not used with programming at all, anyway I compiled Rakarrack from git and tried to edit «rakarrack.fl» with Fluid (as suggested here, maybe for a similar problem ).

    I searched the whole file for the "+" and "-" shortcuts in order to edit it, but I found nothing.

    Am I proceeding in the right way? How do I set them, i.e., to "8" and "9" keys?

    Thank you in advance.
