Hello, I am trying to set up Spectrasonics plugins in VE Pro.  I've got them to trigger but only in Omni mode. How can I change each instrument to only receive the MIDI track that I designate to send it?  I put in NI's B4II and I just change the MIDI receive track to the track I want and that is it - it works.  But I have to leave this on Omni which means any other track in that instantiation will trigger the Spectrasonics instruments.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

HI rosindabow,

Omnisphere,Stylus work exactly like all other multi timbral instruments.
IN VE PRO YOU HAVE TO ASSIGN A SEPERATE MIDI PORT TO EACH MULTI-TIMBRAL INSTRUMENT SUCH AS OMNISPHERE or KONTAKT and set MIDI to OMNI!.In your sequencer you HAVE to assign each midi track to a seperate midi channel all assigned to the SAME MIDI PORT for that instrument.YOU HAVE TO SET IT UP THIS WAY TO AVOID INSTRUMENTS BEING TRIGGERED ON OTHER TRACKS!
=================================================================================================================================
in VE Pro main GUI you assign a port (for example:'Vienna Ensemble Pro 1 1')to the Omnisphere instrument and leave midi channel on 'Omni'.
=================================================================================================================================
In your host sequencer create 8 midi tracks and assign each midi Channel to 'Vienna Ensemble Pro 1 1' > Midi Channel 1 - 8 respectively.
=================================================================================================================================
the midi setup for DP is clearly demonstrated with lots of screen shots in the VE PRO pdf Manual,you have also started another thread earler that I responded to explaning the Ve Pro midi ports in more detail..please take the time to read the replies and the manual and search other threads,before posting.

Dean.

Hello,  I have read and re-read the manual.  To me at least, it is not written very clearly.  I have been running Digital Performer and other DAWs for years - there are a lot of pieces to this puzzle and I cannot seem to easily piece them together.  Please understand I am not posting frivolously.  I am sitting in front of my computer for hours before I post.

So, for instance, when it says in the manual: Add a new instrument track and choose Vienna Ensemble  does that mean a new instance of Vienna Ensemble and NOT VE Pro?  Because he next screenshot show VE Pro and says: The windows you will see now are the Vienna Ensemble Server Interface, the Vienna Ensemble Server and the Vienna Ensemble GUI.  OThis is obviously not the instrument.  I have already had the Server open and I have set up multiple Vienna Instruments in it with separate MIDI tracks and all are working perfectly.  And like I said, I can open an NI BII4 and change the MIDI receive in it to the the specific MIDI track that I am sending on and that works perfectly.  And normally when I open up Kontakt or Spectrasonics I just add a new track and it defaults to the next MIDI track - no problem - I just change the next MIDI track to the new instrument.

Sorry, but this is just not working in the way I'm accustomed to working.  I cannot figure it out.
