    Changing Patch in Sonar

    Hi everyone,
    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?

    thanks

    Not that I know of. I just use more tracks for recording percussion. If keyswitched instruments are available, I use those.

    Using the Track-property, Enter intial Bank, patch, MIDI Channel as what it supposed to be. Also, in the project-option, MIDI-Out, enable check-box \"Patch/Ctrl ... Before play start\".

    And how should I change the patch?

    Perhaps you could clarify your question. It seems to ask “How can I change patches without changing patches?”

    Thanks Bill, we knew that it was a confused!

    Here is some concerned about changing patch:

    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.
