Author Topic: keyboard send MIDI notes to global MIDI channel when in Control Mode  (Read 190 times)

It would be useful, when Control Mode is active, to have the keyboard send MIDI to a dedicated MIDI channel (or the Control Mode's global MIDI channel) instead of the current track's MIDI channel.
This could be a setting for the user to choose, e.g. "When CONTROL MODE active, keyboard sends on: TRACK's MIDI CHANNEL / GLOBAL MIDI CHANNEL".

The use-case is to have the KeyStep Pro to function also as the external keyboard of other MIDI gear with embedded sequencer, without having to sacrifice a track of the KSP to select that MIDI channel.

E.g. I set up tracks 1-4 to MIDI channels 1-4, and Control Mode global MIDI channel to 5, then I configure external gear to record MIDI on channel 5 and I'd use Control Mode to temporarily set the KSP keyboard to send on channel 5, and I can still use the 4 tracks to sequence additional 4 instruments.
Currently it seems I have to sacrifice one of the 4 tracks to output on the channel 5, but never use the track's sequencer...

Hope it makes sense.
