Expression Dial not working with Multitimbral

Thu Jun 10, 2021 12:55 am

I’m very new to Mac and mainstage, having come from Brainsoawn Forte. I have a fairly large set up with 32 different sounds I use from various EastWest libraries.

I’ve set them up as 2 multitimbral instances of Play and am using aliases to reduce CPU load. The one thing I can’t get to work right is the expression dial. It will only lower the volume of whatever is playing out of Channel 1 for my instances of Play


I have 3 EW sounds I’m using at the same time but split among the keyboard. I’ve set up 3 alias each is playing the correct sound from their corresponding midi channels (1, 2 and 3 in this case). I want all 3 to be at separate volumes. If I turn the expression dial on the alias for channel 1 it will change volumes. When I do it for 2 and 3 nothing changes.

If I can get this solved then I think Mainstage is going to work out really well. Any ideas?
