In plugin form, since it's VST2 it only recognizes one MIDI input. Standalone version recognizes all MIDI inputs your OS has. However, as far as I can see, you cannot route individual MIDI ports within the structure however you want, all recognized and activated MIDI inputs behave as one. Unless I'm missing something.

As long as there is a drop down menu ( right clicking event input ) that let's me choose the bus and channel I'm good .

You are 8)

In the Structure you can create as many event input pins as required. You can then assign any given pin to a particular MIDI port and/or channel, by right/cmd-clicking on it. (By default pins receive on all ports / all channels).

Ah, great! In this case I'm glad to be wrong :)


BTW James, I would really really appreciate an option to disable all UI animations. fade in/outs and the like. It's needlessly slowing down the workflow. Hope that's not complicated to add. It doesn't even need to be a feature in options, I would be fine with a registry entry, like UI fade time, X ms, 0 being off.


Thanks for considering!

And is this the james walker hall , from reaktor fame :D ?
Oh that's a name I remember well from Reaktor ensembles! Didn't realize it was that James. Reaktor Session was my very first VST (Actually AU at the time as I was Apple/Logic). My first software synths after using Reason for years. And I saw James's name all over the ensembles in the Factory Library.
System: Windows 10, Dell XPS 2-in-1, Bitwig 3, Steinberg UR44.

There is a (unsupported) way to disable this, please PM me for more details

(Edit: I took down this from public post as it is advanced/unsupported and could cause or lead to later problems if not done correctly or fully understood)

Thanks for finding that. It was a trivial fix and will be included in the next release.

In future please report technical issues to support@newsonicarts.com to make sure they are properly tracked and dealt with. We can easily miss things posted here and don't neccesarily check.

Could I also receive the instructions in a PM? I saw the original post but didn't have time to note it down. :( Thanks in advance!
