Separate MIDI channel for each organ staff

When I assign an organ staff to a MIDI channel in the Play view, it automatically changes all 3 organ staves to the same channel. I need for Dorico to stop doing this.

My VST has a large selection of organ stop combinations, including pedals. When you play a real organ in a concert hall or a church, you can assign different stops to different manuals, and also the pedals, all at the same time. This should likewise be possible in Dorico–and it would be easy, if the UI would just stop synching the staves to the same MIDI channel. I don’t actually see any reason for this feature to be enabled on organ staves. Maybe it makes sense for a piano or a harpsichord, but an organ is not a single-timbre keyboard instrument. The whole auto-synch idea for keyboards does not apply to organ channels.

This is not yet possible, but it has been confirmed for the future. A workaround can be to use several single staff instruments and rename and reroute them.

yeah, that works, though getting the correct braces on the left edge of the score does not look easy. We also lose the keyboard-specific nuances, like dynamics in the middle of the braced staves. But I can do the “Dr. Copy and Mr. Hide” trick and hope the right one comes out of the printer.
