Setup a track so that only single midi channel is used as an input (so if another channel is used no input is received)

I need to route my midi controller channels each to a separate track with instruments mounted on them.

I want my midi to act like this:

1. signal 1 is sent through channel 1 -> track 1 (and only track 1!) must receive the input, other tracks are intact

2. signal 2 is sent through channel 2 -> track 2 (and only track 2!) must receive the input

... etc.

For some reason, even if I select a specific channel as a midi channel in my vst windows, it still records all the channels.

How do I solve this problem? It should be easily solvable, though I can't understand how.

Open your Studio One preferences and go to External Devices.

Select the midi controller you're using, and click Edit.

Check the box for "Split Channels," and click OK. Close the preferences window.

You may have to re-assign the midi controller to the two tracks after doing this, but when you do so now, you'll have an additional option to select which  MIDI channel that track is responding to.
