More seamless switching between Dual KB/mirrored KB

Postby FutureBanana » 13 Oct 2021, 22:42

My setup involves a Nord Stage 3 Compact and a Studiologic SL88. I usually "mirror" the SL88 to the NS3, but on certain programs things are better suited for Dual KB mode (often piano on the SL88, everything else on the NS3).

As it stands, when I use a Dual KB program, I need to also remember to switch the program on my SL88 to one that only broadcasts on channel 2 (which I use for Dual KB mode, instead of channel 1 that I use for Global). As easy as that sounds, it still trips me up from time to time.

I'd love to use my SL as just a "dumb" controller that I never need to touch. Is this possible? Per program MIDI channel settings would be ideal (as discussed in this thread). I've also toyed with trying to use External to do automatic program switching on the SL, though it's not ideal—first off, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the SL to receive PC messages, and even if I could, using my NS3 to switch programs on my SL that also switch the channels the SL is communicating on could get very complicated.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
