How come you get to be in green?
Where was I... THIS IS AMAZING!
No, not the docs.... the docs are crap. But the feature is AMAZING. If anyone else is as ADD confused as I.
1. Apparently you do NOT need to use a 'Send' plug-in to forward MIDI to another track.
a. Just hit the power button on the Send.
b. Select the teensy down arrow at the bottom right of the Send and Et Viola... the MIDI goes to any VSTi.
c. And then you can choose the channel on which it's received with the # widget next door.
So you can get 5 instruments sounding from one MIDI track. Schweeeet!
2. BUT if wanna get more sophisticated, use the MIDI Modifiers plug-in. Then you can transpose, alter the velocity, etc. forwarded to the Send VSTi. Super Schweet. This is VERY important, since most VSTis will respond to various parameters differently. Saves a LOT of patch tweaking!
3. I guess if yer all EDM you could use the other plugs to do stuff like forward a drum track to an Arp generator which triggers some bloop, bloop, bloop crap on another synth.
Thanks to you both.
NB: I didn't actually figure it out from pg. 457. But because the posters insisted it was 'there' I just started clicking on *flower* in the Send pane until something 'happened'. I can't really complain about the program design here... it does make sense... but this is such a powerful feature, I can't understand why the docs don't give at least ONE clear example of how these routings work.
