I want to try some changes to my basic C3 SOLO SetList setup, but need some help understanding an aspect of Bindings.
I use three keyboards, two are controlled by C3. I have setup routing and bindings that use the bottom octave on my Axiom 61 key board white keys to change to one of several organ VST’s on the Axiom (e.g. VB3 presets, Sampletank 4). I also use the black keys in that lower octave to change VST instruments on my iRig37 key board (e.g. tenor sax, baritone sax, trumpet).
Although it all works, it’s a bit cumbersome. Ideally when I change to a different VST on Axiom, I would prefer that the key note requesting the new VST also mutes the previous VST. Same for the iRig37. Currently I have the Binding Controller Action set to “Resume/Suspend” and the Value set to “Toggle”, so to switch VST’s I have to press the note key once to shut-off the current VST, and then press the new note key to turn on the desired VST.
I cannot find in the User docs (or the Forum) an explanation of the various choices available on the Control Action drop-down menu. I have tried using Solo Exclusive, but currently all instruments are in the same rack, so it works for the one keyboard, but shuts off the sound in the second keyboard. I also see other options on the drop-down menu like Solo, Solo Control, etc. and way down is a set of numbers with the selected VST instrument showing next to a number, e.g. 9: Solo - Tenor Sax. Is there a guide somewhere to these various options?
Is there a different Control Action menu choice I should use? or Do I need to have a separate rack for the VST’s for each keyboard?
If screen prints would be helpful, I can send.
Appreciate any guidance or a solution.
