Hey Takadimi

Thanks für creating and offering this device. Does your device offer the option of filtering MIDI messages with a specific channel only? What I’m looking for is the ability to “listen” to “All” MIDI channels on a track, but filter out all note messages coming from a specific attached keyboard controller. This would give me the ability to use my e-Piano to trigger the notes on the instrument on the respective track, while being able to make use of the wheels and knobs of another attached controller, without having the latter trigger the notes of the instrument on the track.

I hope you get what I mean. Thanks for considering!

Hi LeoVirtuoso

As far as I know, in a midi or instrument track, all midi data are writed by ableton Live (inside the track), as coming from channel 1. This is a specificity of Ableton Live.
This mean you can select midi in channel in the input menu and mid channel out the output menu but inside the track, midi channel has no importance.
So, if you need to select midi data according to their channel you have to select it by creating a midi track for each channel then routing it by selecting approprate midi channel output.
many thanks!
Hi, thanks for the device. Would it be possible to have an option that once enabled the filter on a midi message, it waits to act for his default value or status? For instance a checkbox near each filter type that enables waiting for note off for still sounding notes, pitch bend 64 value, aftertouch and polypressure 0 value.
(to continue the above message) or, maybe simpler, an option that once set send the default status when the filter is enabled (all notes off, etc..)
