How to expand a midi track - lareofxenia - 01-10-2013


I am trying to migrate away from Windows to the Linux world. Things are going well. The final frontier seems to be the real time applications. I have used various sequencers/daws in Windows, so I have some background with midi and digital audio. I installed Muse several days ago, and so far I am impressed with the midi, though I have more testing to do.

Here is where I am hoping to get some help:
I am recording midi from an external hardware sequencer. I am able to record my song to a midi track OK in Muse. The resulting Track 1 contains 8 channels of midi data. I want to move (or copy, or expand) the data for each channel to it's own track. (Chan9 to track 9, Chan10 to track 10, etc.) What is the easiest way in Muse to do this? I am using Muse 2.0~rc2.

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Sorry for delay in answering and unfortunately I have no quick answers but the topic is interesting, I've forwarded your question to the muse developer mailinglist.

Hi terribly sorry for the delay.

By default, to help new users get running, each midi track
records from all channels from all input ports.

To restrict input to specific channels from specific ports,
simply click on the midi track's Track Info panel 'Input Routes' button
(it is shaped like a midi plug), and you will see a pop-up menu
of an array of red LEDs, representing each of the channels
from each port.
By default all the LEDs are lit, so simply click on the LEDs
to turn them on or off.
Hold the Ctrl key down while clicking to prevent the menu from disappearing.
Entire rows can be turned on or off by clicking the up/down arrow-shaped icon.

So, you should create separate midi tracks for each of the desired channels,
and manipulate their input route LEDs as desired.

If having all channels routed to new tracks by default is not desired, open the
Midi Configuration Settings menu, and you will see two columns for choosing
exactly which channels on which ports should be automatically routed when
creating new tracks.
There are also options for retroactively applying the settings to existing tracks.

Hope this answers the question.
Feel free to contact us on the mailing lists, it tends to be a bit faster response
than the poor several weeks seen in this case <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
