Re: Velcity layers

I use Bome permanently in my setup and it could be a placeholder solution.
But it would be very inflexible this way, you couldn't for instance have the threshold lie at 80 in one scene and at 90 in the next for instance...unless you made the Bome routings and filters much more complex.

Re: Is disabling unused MDI channels beneficial?

For me...it's nothing to do with CPU hit, as there isn't any difference in having them enabled or disabled. It's to do with having a blank canvas for me to start assigning controllers.

Re: Disabling Aftertouch in MIDI Routing

It's currently not possible in forte itself. The same goes for pitchbend for instance.
forte only allows for filtering of incoming MIDI CC's.

I've used an external MIDI filter for these kinds of things in the past, like Bome Translator Pro or MIDIOX.

Sorry, no clue on this one. Though I suspect it's the same underlying problem as the rack editor hang you experience.

I'd save the rack before trimming everytime, so you can easily "try over" when the crash happens.
