here is the problem (I try to keep it simple this time) when I use “Clone MIDI to …”:
It seems to “swallow” MIDI-CC for the parent layer.
There has been a related topic:
But the actual problem has just been circumvented by the user.
1. I create a Fluidsynth layer
1#FSPiano -> Ch1
Now I use the sustain pedal on Ch1 - OK works.
2. then I create a 2nd Fluidsynth layer
2#FSRhodes -> Ch2
Now I use the sustain pedal on Ch2 - OK works.
Now I want to play both from MIDI Ch1
3. I select 1#FS and use Clone MIDI to … [CH2]
Result: sustain (MIDI-CC 64) is just recognized by the 2#FSRhodes layer only. Which means I can’t use sustain on the 1#FSPiano
Imho there should at least be some CCs that are used on all cloned layers. These are: CC#1, CC#2, CC#64, CC#67, CC#68, CC#69. For the time beeing, that should at least satisfy the piano players
|64||Damper Pedal / Sustain Pedal||On/Off switch that controls sustain. (See also Sostenuto CC 66)|
|65||Portamento On/Off Switch||On/Off switch|
|66||Sostenuto On/Off Switch||On/Off switch – Like the Sustain controller (CC 64), However it only holds notes that were “On” when the pedal was pressed. People use it to “hold” chords” and play melodies over the held chord.|
|67||Soft Pedal On/Off Switch||On/Off switch - Lowers the volume of notes played.|
|68||Legato FootSwitch||On/Off switch - Turns Legato effect between 2 subsequent notes On or Off.|
And here’s the stretch: for all other MIDI-CC there should be a MIDI-filter for every layer, be it cloned or not. I know this goes a long way, but that would be so great!
With such a system, you could make the most use out of synth stacks and a MIDI controller.
