I have various controllers in more than one location, and more than one set of drum pads (dotted around my “studio”, rehearsal room and “ready to go” for gigs. I like to keep the complexity in Cantabile, so I rarely configure any controller - I just do it in the input port filters.
The problem is that the complexity is becoming difficult to manage e.g. I have a generic “Top Pads” input that does various note, velocity and channel mappings to always get the same behaviour no matter what pad I use, and there are now situations where I can’t do mappings without breaking another one, and the problem is worse when controllers have pads built in.
I guess I could create my own “input” racks, but that would mean changing many songs.
Would it be possible to change the alias behaviour to allow multiple inputs with the same alias? That would solve the problem I guess, but anyone else got any suggestions?
