I'm putting together a patch for a few lectures physics of music and sound class that I'm teaching and am running into a few MIDI input snags. Basically I'm trying to send midi info into Kontakt loaded into vst~ which then outputs to a few different analyzers to "see" what the sound is doing (harmonics, spectrum, etc.).
In an effort to make the lectures fluid and smooth it's helpful to have a bunch of stuff cued up in the Kontakt rack set on different midi channels so all I have to do is change channels on my controller to change instruments/sounds. But the rub is that vst~ only accepts the pitch on/off and velocity info (and detuning) with the midievent object as stated in the reference. Additionally it seems that any midi sent into vst~ only comes through on channel one.
Does anyone know how I might get more sophisticated MIDI info into vst~ or some sort of workaround? I'd love to be able to control a lot of different knobs, settings, and etc. inside vst~ with midi learn and more but can't figure it out. Any help would be much appreciated!
