Still slowly learning the C3 protocol to see if it can fit my needs. I’d like to get the best example of using Song or Racks to do the following 2 scenarios:
1-single 88 key setup for general use:
Split the keyboard w/ foot expression control: pno on both lower and upper range; and then control pedal( expression) fades out pno in upper range quickly and fades in synth/strings rack gradually so there is a null point of silence. I’d like to avoid having to load the pno vst twice for this.
To change presets on upper rack: Is it possible to use a key combination (hold down lowest key (like a 'function" key) and then press adjacent keys to change presets up or down (would this be states?). Would this have to be the highest keys?
Can C3 'learn" a key combination like that? The reason I want this is so I don’t inadvertently change a preset when I might play low on the keyboard.
Do these MIDI routing filters have to be in the song mode or part of a rack state?
2- double keyboard setup: Using Midi Merge box, upper keyboard trans. on ch 2. Use the same above synth/string rack, but with different transpose to be normal octave. Use same preset changing key combination. Is this just a different song state with the same racks?
