The problem at its simplest: Under the Inspector, if I change the MIDI Program Number to 3, then all the other tracks also change to 3.
While I can automate program changes under the automation lane, I cannot assign a program change to the track via the inspector. It's assigned to the entire instrument, which either doesn't make sense or is a bug. If it's a feature, then I'm thinking it shouldn't be part of the track inspector and I might reword the reference manual a bit. But between that and being able to use program changes to switch articulations on one channel in Cubase, Kontakt, and VI-Pro... I'm guessing this is just a bug.
I have several instruments in Kontakt and from VSL that I want to use one midi channel for, but have the different articulations on different tracks. And I can't see how. If anyone can think of another way to accomplish that, I'd welcome the input. The rest of my template avoids the use of keyswitches and I'd like to do that with these instruments as well (I prefer using S1's navigation and UI to manage articulations), but this issue is preventing that. I'm still very happy with S1. It's brilliant software. Just running into a couple MIDI snags, which seem utterly small in comparison to the good things about this software.
Thanks in advance,
