    Playback different instrument depending on midi input channel
    Hi, I have a midi keyboard connected to logic express and I would like to use it for live performance. However, I would like to be able to toggle the software instrument used for playback depending on the midi channel selected on my keyboard. This way, I could easily switch my sound during a song. I created 3 Software Instrument tracks in logic express. Assigned a different MIDI Channel (1, 2, 3) to each track and then made all tracks record ready (the red R button). My problem is that even if the keyboard only send note on/off on one channel at a time, logic express plays all 3 instruments for every note. Is there a way to assign a midi input channel to an instrument so that only the software instrument mapped to the MIDI event's channel is played? Thank you very much, any help or pointer would be greatly appreciated! Manuel

    Hi Manuel, Go into your project settings. Under 'recording' click on the 'auto-demix by channel if multi-track recording' checkbox. You should then be able to play each software instrument track separately, as per the midi channel your keyboard is sending on. Adam
