Hello there.

I just watched some of the Youtube Tutorials on the IAC Driver and have a quite specific question. Here goes:

So I have several Midi Tracks in Ableton Live (9.6) and want to route the Midi to a sort of Midi Master track. But what I need is for all the midi from the different tracks to come in on different Midi channels.

I am using the IAC Driver and set the different Midi Tracks to send "MIDI To" to the IAC Driver (Bus 1) and select a different Midi Channel for each. Then on the "Master Midi" Track I set "MIDI From" also to IAC Driver (Bus 1) and All Channels.

Now if I use the Max for Live Midi Monitor on it, it is still receiving all the Notes on Channel 1, regardless what output channel I set on the other Midi tracks.

So my question is, how can I route the different tracks to be on different channels and not all on channel 1!?

Is this even possible in Ableton Live? Or is it possible to see/change the Midi Channel of recorded notes somehow?

Thanks for your hints/help.

Best, Armin.
