I do the exact same as @Torsten

Same filter, as well, so my Modwheel and Expression pedals are unaffected because they are pretty universal across plugins.

I save the rack as a file to be shared between songs.

Of course, since getting the Montage, the only plugins I use anymore are NI Classic Keys, Omnisphere 2 (O2) and B3-X.

The Montage Bosendorfer and CFX sound great to me for piano. My CPU is happy.

Thanks gents.

As I remember (funny thing… right) the reason I stuck the “intermediary” rack in there was because I was having trouble figuring out to have a single MIDI CC event do multiple things.

For instance, on the ICON iControl, there are 6 buttons to the upper left. I figured I would use those for the 6 chorus settings. So I have them sent an event on CC85 - CC90. Then in my control rack, I convert those 6 events to a single CC73 at 6 different values. I also send a CC31 that I use to turn the Vibrato Great On if any of the 6 are pressed.

I think I was having trouble figuring out how to do that in my VB3 rack… so once again, that’s why I used the intermediate rack.

Back to the drawing board.

Thanks again!
Rick

Hi All,

A few offerings from the C3 Rack creation pursuit I mess with that were made with the current version of B-3X or some other VSTi’s in mind so I’m posting them until a solution comes. There is no hold CC64 on the current version though word is it’s coming so these 2 racks do that job. They both require a CC 64 damper input to the midi in of the rack to switch the hold and release states. You also need to route the controller you are using for the organ or VSTi that has no hold function through it to your VSTi. In the routing example below I am routed to the Note Holder rack and it routes to the B-3X. It is using the ADD type rack which holds the incoming notes after a sustain press and adds any new ones and re-triggers any already pressed ones. When the damper is released the state change triggers an embedded rack that clears all the notes for that route only and the normal MIDI routing is restored until the next pedal press. The LOCKED type rack differs in that it holds the notes that are pressed when you press the pedal and it blocks any new notes from passing until you release the damper like the ADD rack it sends an all notes off for the route through the rack …

They work here but I’m not sure if they will for everyone. They need Performer to work anyway and seem stable to me.

Cheers

Thanks Dave ! :grinning::grinning: ok…25 characters.


#65

Do we need that 25 character minimum thing on this forum? We all behave… it results in some goofy posts sometimes.


#66

I prefer just using a matchbook. Seriously, I used a folded business card, then flick it to release the note. I got good at sticking it in at an angle to suit the Montage keybed.


#67

I think you also get some very goofy posts without the 25 character limit! :wink:

But I agree, it is a strange limitation, especially when you just want to say thanks!


#68

From now on I will do this:

Thank you Thank you Thank you :grinning:

25 characters, although it reminds me of Gomer Pyle.
