I have a dissolved midi drum track where I send each drum/track (essentially one note each) via midi out to my Alesis SR-16. At the mix console, they obviously show up as individual channels, but the faders make no audible changes. They move from 0-127 and the meter bridge adjusts accordingly - but the result is only visual. (a similar dissolved midi send to Superior Drummer does the same).
I’m trying to figure out if this is a C7 thing, or if I’m trying to achieve something that midi doesn’t do. When I send multiple midi tracks (on different midi channels) through Halion, they function perfectly as individual tracks at the MC.
(My theory) - Is this because the SR-16 (and Superior Drummer) essentially are a single midi sound source and the MC is subsequently trying to change note volume, whereas Halion acts as 16 individual sound sources (split in to midi channels) that can be controlled by the MC? Eg, the MC can control the master volume of a single midi channel, but not an individual note within a channel (even though the MC acts like can).
So my question - is my theory correct, or is there a C7 setting somewhere that makes the above work as I’d like?
