In this video, I am going to show you how to record multiple MIDI tracks…utilizing just one virtual instrument by making use of MIDI channels.…As you can see here in the Mix window, I have got four MIDI tracks right here,…one stereo aux track and a stereo master fader.…On each of the MIDI tracks, I have set the outputs to different MIDI channels,…all going to the same Xpand2 plug-in.…Xpand2 plug-in is inserted on the auxiliary track, and I've chosen channel 1, 2,…3, and 4 for these tracks respectively.…
So, all four of these tracks are routed through the Xpand2 plug-in on…the auxiliary track.…And the plug-in is open right here, and you can see each instrument is assigned…to these different MIDI channels within Xpand2.…We have the MIDI channel 1 is going to be the jazz samba drumbeat, MIDI channel…2 is a double bass, MIDI channel 3 is trumpets, and MIDI channel 4 is a piano.…So we've got a whole band going on here, and if we switch over to the Edit…window, you can see that I have already got some MIDI data in here.…
