Channels - how to use in practice

Postby micopat » Thu Aug 27, 2015 4:25 am

Hello everyone. I'm completely new Quneo user, just started to study reference manual and editor window. I can not find explanations what channels are and how to use them in practice. I will be very grateful If somebody will explain it to me. :?

Channels are part of the MIDI specification. They are helpful when using multiple controllers that may send out the same MIDI data (MIDI notes, CCs etc.) or if you want to send out or receive multiple streams of MIDI data. There are 16 channels. MIDI messages that are sent on channel 16, won't be heard by software/hardware devices looking for Channel 1. If you have a lot of controllers or hardware synths, it's useful to place things on different channels to avoid confusion.

If you're only using the QuNeo you shouldn't really need to worry about it. But, for instance, if you have another controller that is setup to control things using Channel 1, then you might want to switch your QuNeo to a different channel to avoid some MIDI miscommunication.
