In Sonar I'm midi tracks and instrument tracks are independent. So I'm able to have several tracks with different midi channels and all of those goes to just an instance of a virtual instrument.
Example: I'm used to have one midi track for each instrument of a string section. So Violins have a midi track routed to a EW Play with strings on channel one. Violas have a midi track routed to the SAME EW Play but with violas on channel 2. Cellos, midi channel routed to the SAME EW Play with cellos on channel 3. And so on and so forth. I can then have another instance (or even another instrument) for the horns and trumpets on channel 1, trombones on 2, etc. That means, when working with a orchestral score for instance I can have one instance of a given instrument to play the whole section, instead of having one instrument for each midi track.
Can I do something like that on S13?
