is there any difference between having 2 noteouts or route both midi to one?

is there any difference between having 2 noteouts or route both midi pitches and velocities to one noteout?

Maybe there is a technical difference, but the behavior is exactly the same from the users view.

Just wanted to add that sending multiple note streams through a single [noteout] requires careful programming to ensure the integrity of notes, ie. correct assignments of pitch and velocity. This can be handled much easier with multiple [noteout] objects.

Thanks, just wanted to assure multiple noteouts is good practice.

so, I can have a seperate midout sending only release velocity or how does that work?

Each [noteout] object requires complete note messages, ie. pitch and velocity.
But release velocity can only be handled with [xnoteout]. See reference page for details.

is it also ok to have 8 midiouts?
Im thinking a step sequencer for my Mackie C4 and thinking to have one midiout for each column, sending note pitch/velocity some CC and notelength for a half bar sequence

row 1 – pitch
row 2 – velocity
row 3 – CC or release velocity
row 4 – notelength

You can have as many midiout as you like. But since the data of each column (step) are sent together and clearly separated from other columns using a single midiout should work too.
