Question for which there may no ‘right answer’ per se and I know I’m not asking this in the most concise way so please bear with him.
I use what I call the “traditional style” in MIDI, multitimbral instruments have each MIDI Patch/instrument on its own MIDI Track. However, Cubase allows us to use multiple MIDI channels on a single MIDI track.
Is workflow in Cubase more efficient if we place multiple MIDI Channel parts on a single MIDI Track? I’m sure there’s pros and cons to this, times when this is best, other times not, etc.
When we open outputs for the parts in the multitimbral instrument the result is a MIDI Fader and the Audio Output fader. Having the MIDI fader is useful, other times it just feels like “fader clutter.” I use visibility agents to remove MIDI faders and mostly mix with the audio outputs. So this part seem is fine.
Maybe the most concise way to ask this is: What’s the best, or some good ways, best practices, in using multiple MIDI Channels on a Single MIDI Track?
I wonder if I missing some smart workflow by not using a single MIDI track containing data for Multiple MIDI Channels.
Thank you for any recommendations or thoughts on this.
