I observed when a multitimbral instrument is used and Multi-Channel MIDI is sent to it, with a performance engaged, some notes play on additional channels above MIDI Channel Five.
It’s interesting. I’m finding good sounds by using highly populated versions of HaLion Sonic SE (screenshot) and Omnisphere, but was wondering about giving Scaler a way to restrict MIDI channels to some given number of channels? Perhaps some kind of mapping feature or MIDI Routing Matrix internal to Scaler could be developed for a future iteration?
I can route channels inside the instrument, but a routing matrix inside Scaler itself might be something to look at.
Thanks for any comments, thoughts or suggestions about this.
I’ve been thinking about that, but I think the easiest way will be to record a single Cubase Track which can have notes assigned to different channels. Then I’ll use Cubase’s Dissolve by Channel. This will will create up to 16 MIDI Tracks, then it will be easier to go to those tracks and set their MIDI channels. I don’t mind if two or three notes of a performance are played on the same channel.
Lastly, I’d merge tracks back together so that two or three tracks assigned to different channels are now all on one MIDI track assigned to one MIDI channel.
There’s always a few ways to skin the cat in Cubase. You’re post helped me think about this more.
