Learning a lot about MIDI here guys, (Thanks, Randy) and while implementing a few of the great tips a few questions have been raised. Hope I make sense.
I've changed the mod wheel on my Akai MPK 61 Controller to send CC#11 info vs. CC#1. When I use the wheel when recording a passage/phrase, should the data be recorded with the notes? I've perused the Sonar manual re: recording CC data, but haven't found anything. Nonetheless, when I record a passage/phrase the CC data is not recorded, and any manipulation of the sound is drawn in after the fact. Is this normal? Or I'm I missing something?
Also, when layering patches, does the CC#11 data for one voice recorded on say Midi Channel 12 Track 16 affect the phrase recorded on Midi Channel 12 Track 17? Or, should one draw (or record, see above) different data?
Thanks in advance. Learning more and more about GPO and thoroughly enjoying the experience. I appreciate all the advice on the forum, and love listening to compositions posted by the members. Can't wait to get something completed to share with everyone (also shaking in my boots :-)
