I’m trying to figure out something, but can’t manage yet:
Can I use several MIDI Channels in one instrument track, like on a midi track ?
(The reason for this is, I want to make a Track Preset with multiple sounds in a multitimbral instrument saved within it. I know I can load the instrument in the VST Instrument panel, and setup MIDI Tracks to it. But the Multi Track Preset then doesn’t save the sounds. I seperately have to save the sounds in the Instrument.)
For example, I have set up one instrument track for a multitimbral instrument like Halion Sonic.
In Halion Sonic, I load several sounds on several MIDI Channels.
In Key Editor, in the Info line above, I can assign MIDI Channel numbers to individual notes.
But the sound always goes to channel number one !
In a MIDI Track I can handle this by setting the MIDI Channel of the Track to “Any” in the Inspector.
I hope this is possible with instrument tracks too, then I can make a Track Preset with several sounds out of one loaded multitimbral VST Instrument.
Also: is it possible to assign MIDI Channel numbers to MIDI Parts as a whole ? (setting the MIDI Track Channel to “any”)
I remember this doing in earlier Cubase versions, but can’t find it yet.
Any suggestions appreciated !
