One of the great things about Cantabile Performer is that you can create VERY complicated setups. My main setup has the following:
- Upper on MIDI channel 1
- Lower on MIDI channel 2
- A drawbar controller (setup as an input within my Hammond linked rack)
- A Minimoog-style controller (within my Mini-V linked rack) .
When I try to set volumes, alter patches, add effects, it’s hard to do while I’m playing - especially with the more complicated patches. I record MIDI from both keyboards and I can play them back through the Media Player, but I have to route them directly to an individual output (rack or plugin), and then all of the splits, mults, etc. get lost.
What I’d like to do is record the MIDI and then route it through the Media Player into the keyboard inputs (e.g. lower or upper).
The other alternative is to record the outputs of the individual keyboards into a DAW (Sonar for me), and use Sonar to play them back through a loopback driver. This is less optimal since I have to bounce back and forth between Sonar and Cantabile.
Anyone run into this before?
