How to set up multiple channels -- HW5??

PostSat Dec 14, 2019 8:15 pm

Am stuck with frustration in trying to get back to the former HW4 functionality!

Is there not a simple explanation as to how to route/allocate a collection of 60 samples to a set of 10 stereo speakers for a single organ? Maybe a simple set of steps that can be repeated as required for the many samples?

Idea is to assign some sample ranks to each stereo pair, such as 8 ranks to speaker channel 1, another group of ranks to speaker channel 2, and so on. Each of the channels drives one stereo pair.

The mixer and bus terminology is foreign (at least to me) and the complexity seems far beyond that of HW4, where the allocation of voices to channels was simple.

Once this is accomplished and the system better understood then perhaps one could advance to more sophistication.

You may find this helpful
The linked pdf describes how I set up my system with five stereo pairs (front), rear stereo pair, sub and phones.

The good news is that if the multichannel setup is done for one sample set then it will be present for other sample sets. You will just do the routing of ranks to what we used to call groups for each new sample set.

It sure helped me to completely do away with the complicated naming and stick with names like Front, Diffuse, Rear, Pedal.

Hello WmHurt,

I've added some notes to Iain's thread covering where to find the example in the v5 documentation for routing ranks/divisions to individual speaker pairs, and also how to migrate/retain/recover your v4 audio routing, in case your want to do that: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17916#p135706
