Using MIDI to toggle a module parameter on/off

Many hardware MIDI controllers let you configure their buttons so they act as on/off toggle switches, rather than only being on when they are held down ("momentary"). However, not all controllers support this.

Here's a nifty trick to emulate a MIDI toggle switch for any module parameter in Magic. After linking the parameter to your desired MIDI button, add two modifiers with the values shown below:

This modifier sequence will make it so that whenever you press your MIDI button, the parameter value will continually toggle between 0 and 1. Try it out! And of course, let me know if you have any questions.

Yes, nifty and with an invert toggle and swap nodes and params with one button!
