MIDI Panic button

A “MIDI Panic” button in the ‘Tempo & Transport’ menu and in the browser would be very helpful. I have not found anything about this. If not available, is it possible to “build in” that?


Wouldn’t it make sense to just turn off all plugins?
Or you mean specifically only MIDI panic, I guess to shut down stuck notes.

That’s exactly what I mean, MIDI panic. Sometimes a sound/MIDI-Note from a synthesizer stops when you stop the transport. This happened to me with the MIDI file plugin and Dexed, for example
I haven’t noticed this with audio yet.


I too have stuck notes on various synths and have thought about the same thing. I have to turn on/off the stuck synth to make i go away.


Besides MIDI-Panic it would be useful for all MIDI keyboards, sequencers, MIDI players, … to send a CC 123 “All Notes Off” (MIDI CC List) at the end.


It is a bit of necroposting, but I’ve bumped into the same issue - some notes are stuck sometimes from my midi controller as NoteOn, and enabling-disabling a corresponding plugin is not a feasible method if you do not have access to Webui when this happens, and even you have access - it takes quite a lot of badly spent time with an annoying sound in background, while searching for the plugin if pedalboard is large enough like this:

However, looks like sending CC123 works fine. You can emulate MIDI PANIC by sending this signal with Infamous mindi, connecting it to each generator that requires midi panic:

I’ve checked it with the following generators, and seems like they all stop playing when they get this CC123:

tal noisemaker
fluidgm organs

There are other generators I did not test, so I cannot say if they all respect this CC, but that’s quite a number to prove the concept.

For sure this mindi can be assigned to a button, so you can use it without webui.


MIDI panic function/button is very useful and very common in a MIDI environment.
It should be very accessible to be useful (in the Tools menu for instance).


What we really need is to debug the source of the problem… sometimes the note off is not arriving or not been processed correctly :frowning:
