Greetings from Tennessee:
I have a Tascam 1884 Firewired into a XPC music computer and MIDI connection to Yahama P90 Keyboard.
MIDI is baffling me. I can play multiple MIDI tracks in Sonar 3 sequencer. If they are soloed, then they
play the instrument I've patched to the track. My problem is I cannot get multiple instruments to play
all at once. When soloed, the patched instrument plays the MIDI data, but when played with
two or three other tracks that have drum patch assigned, or Sax patch assigned, they
all are then played with ONE INSTRUMENT and not different instruments assigned. I have
been trying to get multiple MIDI sounds from the Yahama to play back on the
Sonar 3 for days and would appreciate any advice.
If I assign an instrument to channel two of the 16 MIDI channels it will not play. All of the MIDI
tracks will only play on channel one. I have tried every combination of patching
and channeling I can think of. Must be doing something wrong. Is this a
Sequencer setting issue or Keyboard setting issue? Keyboard is sending and
receiving MIDI data. If I can get 16 different instruments playing
16 MIDI data tracks thru the P90 I will be a happy camper--but what a PIA.
