MIDI Controller Requirements

VenueMagic receives and detects MIDI Channel Messages as it's primary mechinism for External MIDI Control.  Controllers such as the Rolls MidiBuddy only send messages on a single Channel and therefore can only function for a single external control like a single cue button.  When evaluating MIDI controllers you should make sure that the device is either programable or sends a variety of Channel Messages.
