So you trigger exs24 samples with axiom on C-1 to C0 and it still play other notes to es2?
Maybe some things you can try:
(seems you´ve donne but review it)
See the layer editor of both channel strips.
Try this: play your C-1 and C5 right on the screen keyboard not the axiom (maybe the axiom is sending some others notes...)
Can you post an image of the edit mode of your concert?
Hope i´ve helped you
Thanks for getting back to me Bruno.
I found a solution that seems to work though i'm a bit confused as to why.
When I click on the individual pads in my Edit screen it brings up the Screen Control Inspector underneath.
What i've done is click on the Mappings tab>ESX24>Midi Notes and Map Parameter to the note that coresponds to the drum pad.
I'm thinking that blocks all other inputs to that note except for the ESX24 but i'm not 100% certain.
The end result is that I can hear my samples now without having my ES2 playing underneath it. SUCCESS!
It seems that there's some bugs in the relationship Mainstage has between the software instruments. For example, adjusting your splits/key range in the Mainstage Layer Editor will not adjust necessarily adjust your key range on the instruments itself. I have had to go into the editor on the ESX24 to delete any layers below my keyboards lowest note in order to get the drum pads not to conflict with matching key mappings.
Not a huge issue but definitely takes some playing around to get working the way I needed.
Thanks again for all your help!
