Is it possible to mute an external midi channel in Main Stage. I know you can mute an internal synth or audio channel but it does not seem possible to mute a midi channel. Any suggestions?

    I have a patch with several layers. I want to use a switch (sustain pedal) to mute a layer that is going to an external midi layer. It can be done with layers that are going to internal sounds (i.e. EXS24). Is this possible?

    Hi

     

    Iguess it all depends on how yoy are dealing with teh audio from the external MIDI synth?

     

    If you are bringing the audio back in to MS via the External MIDI channel strip I/O, you can mute the audio return in the sam eway as you would with an Internal Instrument.

     

    There does not appear to be a way to "mute" external MIDI transmission.

    Can you set up your external synth to respond to the volume CC or to adjust volume based one expression? Then you can have the sustain pedal send volume or expression min/max to the external synth when you press it.
