multi-instrument subchannels


Recommended Posts

This issue has probably been addressed before but I want to start a new thread on it. When trying to adjust multi-instrument midi tracks, the fader adjusts the volume for my instrument. Is there a way for my fader to affect the midi channel that was supposed to be adjusted? Im using version 7.1 by the way

Have you set the channels for each part of the multi-instrument? My JV1080 has 16 sub-channels set with a fader for each one in the mixer.


See pics - I have selected Ch 5 for JV1080, I move the mixer fader and it outputs CC7 data on Ch5.


How is your multi-instrument set up to receive CC7 data?

I was wondering if you are addressing an external multi-instrument? How is it set to receive MIDI CC? Is it set to "ALL" (global?)


I can't follow why your LP mixer faders for each MIDI sub-channel of multi-instrument address to "ALL" MIDI channels. If you have set the Multi-Instrument's sub channels to address their individual MIDI channel then CC should be generated by a fader on it's specific assigned MIDI channel. That was the purpose of my previous pics. I only cabled JV1080 output to a monitor to show that CC from the fader on Sub-Channel 5 is sending on that channel - etc for all 16.


My setup displays in mixer individual channel strips for each sub-channel of Multi-instrument. With JV1080 sub-channel "5" selected - JV1080 Strip 5 is highlighted in mixer and sends data on Channel 5. I have set my external instruments to receive as per sent MIDI. So sounds on different JV channels are addressed individually not global.


So I am not sure what is happening for you without knowing full MIDI path you are using.

Just to be absolutely clear...


Are you using an *external* (real, hardware...JV1080 or similar) synth, or an Internal (software) instrument plugin?



External ones (provided they have been set up correctly in multi-timbral mode) should work as previously described.


Internal ones do not....


For internal multi-timbral plugins, this might help:





See also the Environment section of this forum.



The most basic solution (if the plugin supports it) is to run in multi-output channel mode, and to adjust the volumes of the Aux outputs.
