Is there a way where I can play live on one track and keep the last note sustained while I switch to another Instrument Track and play over the sustained note (like a drone)?
I already posted a thread in the main Logic forum and David helped me setting up a solution in the MIDI environment. But it has its limitations and he suggested that I should try and ask here for any support.
With the MIDI environment method, we used a Cable Switch to cut communication with the Sequencer Input so that the Input from the Physical input can sustain. Then going to another Track and switching the Cable Switch back to connect to the Sequencer Input and that way I can play with different Instruments over the drone.
The problem that I had with this method was that I had to play the exact same notes on the sustained track to stop the sustain.
Here some additional information:
- I'm using the BBCSO Core 2 Template and the Traveler Console from Monogramm.
- we used CC35; on Value 127, off Value 0 for the Toggle.
- use the Sustain Pedal on the Sustained Track to end the Notes (just my current idea on how to get out of the sustained mode / using the same CC35 would also work for me)
Maybe there is a more elegant way with the scripter that tackles this problem?
