Playing voicings - a whole section simultaneously?
Hello fellow JABB users!
I have been fanatically glued to my computer ever since I first got my JABB, tweaking all the MIDI control channels and the lot, but a sinister question has been bothering me, one that I cannot find an answer to in any manual, guide or forum post. How can I play chords?
It seems that no matter how many instruments I load (like the whole trombone section, for instance) I can only get one pitch at a time. A great sounding, mind you, beatiful note, but only one, which after all seems at the very least a bit unsatisfying, especially to folks with a weird perversion towards pianos and other polyphonic keyboard instruments such as myself.
I find it very hard to believe that a library of such limitless quality and thoroughness would not fulfil my needs. How would I go about being able to play many voices at a time? With no sequencer, without any fancy-schmancy programming chops, how could I try out what a chord sounds like when played by the saxes, or how bad a particular passage sound with trombones and trumpets doing this or that?
I would very much appreciate a solution to my rather enigmatic situation, for the lack of beatiful harmonies and intricate aural tensions significantly hinders my enjoyment of the otherwise ingenious software.
Re: Playing voicings - a whole section simultaneously?
I must add to the above that I did make every effort for all the different instruments to listen to the same MIDI-channel, coincidingly the very one I was transmitting on with my controller, I also moved the modulation weel, which I can boast having 2 occurances of on my Yamaha EX5, on every instrument. They seem to be playing as a section, but still monophonically.
