When I am using Sonar with Gigastudio I have to change patches in the same track (ex. when you use a percussion library) very often.
Is there any way to change a patch in a track other than inserting a
\"patch change\" event?
We usually have about 20 tracks for Drum/percussion used. That way We can specify individual MIDI-Ctrl intial-patch, MIDI-Port/CH, master-Vol, Velocity/panning and Giga-Fx\'s parameters as well. On the other hand, to change the patch on fly might generates problematically in the audio-streaming results if there is not enough setup time (latency and CPU processing). Like about 3 seconds is best efficiently safe for a patch-changed before sending any other MIDI\'s events (Notes/Etc). Just my two-cent.
