Use specific MIDI input for software instrument channel?
May 20th, 2009, 03:09
I am recording a Software Instrument via an external MIDI keyboard. However the Software Instrument Track doesn't seem to allow me to accept MIDI input from ONLY a specific MIDI port like the External MIDI track type does. It seems to accept input from any connected MIDI device. So if someone is in the studio sitting at my V-Drums while I'm recording from the MIDI keyboard, Logic records accidental touches on the drums as well. I have been trying to find a solution for this for over a year reading every article on Logic and MIDI that I can get my hands on and Googling every possible combination of words. The image below may help understand my problem. This is my Software Instrument Track. Notice that the Port setting is grayed out so I can only select the MIDI channel.

Why can't I do the same thing on a Software Instrument Track? [img]http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/8373/18337968.jpg[/img] Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. thanks, Steve ClarkeReply
