Okay, I think @fuzzfilth's approach is the closest so far to what I need. But I'm still not quite there yet.
I set something up to mimic the screenshot (thanks!) but with just two synths. This is what it looks like:
I think, despite being labeled "MIDI Instrument A" and "MIDI Instrument B" @fuzzfilth is using multi-instruments?
Anyway, I am now able to limit/block notes across different instruments. That is, in the following picture, the second note of the first instrument does not sound. Yay!
Trouble is, they map to the same synth (labeled "Basic") so have the same sound. If I switch to channel 2, the same effect happens, but with the "Chime" synth:
I guess this is because of the channel splitter, which seems to be working against me here? Because what I want to be able to do is use one synth to override another, so a Chime sound can override a Basic sound, or vice versa. In the following picture, there is no limiting/override. One synth just plays over the other as you'd expect under normal circumstances:
Makes sense, I guess (I dunno, I'm new
) because they're now considered the same instrument. Same thing happens with separate instruments and
So, I'm probably missing something obvious (thanks for the patience) but is there not a way to do the limiting across different actual voices/synths?
