Just to chime in – Thanks for pushing this Atomicunderware. I've been following this thread for a while as I have the exact same problem. Right now I've got my factors in loops that are programmed per preset, but I would like to free up the loops. I'm using a musicom mk efx2 to send midi program changes to the factors, but the factors always engage when I send a pgm change.
Incidentally, I'm also seeing an off by one error when controlling two factors from a master one. From the efx, I switch the master [PF] to 12:1 and it in turn switches the others [MF, TF] to 12:2 even though that's not what the mapping specifies (12:1 should match to 12:1). I don't mean to steal this thread though, so I'll start a new thread on that if I can't figure out what the issue is 🙂
