 If midi processing plugins are involved that take multiple instruments as input, one might think that one could simply route all generators to the plugin and let all instruments read from the plugin. But then all instruments would play the notes of all generators as that is the output of the processing plugin. If midi processing plugins are involved that take multiple instruments as input, one might think that one could simply route all generators to the plugin and let all instruments read from the plugin.

-====== ​Some problems ​====== +===== Work-arounds for problem cases ====
-Everything working now ?  Mostly - there are some tiny problems with the above solutions:​ + 
-  * There are midi generators that don'​t ​allow to specify the output ​channel +=== Set Output Channel ​=== 
-  * There are midi generators that have setting for the output channel, but don't statesave it - so every time when reloading the sesssion one has to setup the output channel ​again+If a generator plugin by itself wont'​t ​change ​channel, or forgets its channel settings one can allways insert ​midi channel modifying plugin into the connection between the problematic generator and the multi midi input processing plugins forcing everything onto a specifiy channel. The [[midi_au_output_channel|midi au output channel ​wiki page]] summarizes all midi generating plugins regarding their ability ​to specify ​the midi output channel ​and state save this value.

 +If a hosts lack complex ​midi routing ​and only support ​midi plugins ​for single track/slot, there is a pair of Mozaic scripts for host-wide midi transmission.

 +\\
 +=== Apply Input Channel Filter ​ ===
 +If a host doesn'​t offer a midi input filter for their instrument slots, you can insert a scipt plugin into the connection between the the multi midi input processing plugin and the instrument.

-Here are three solutions to force incomming events onto a specific output channel 
  
-** Midi Tools:** 
-  Use the included ‚Midi Clone and Filter‘ plugin 
-  ​ 
-** StreamByter scripting:​** 
-  XX = X4  # Use (output channel -1) and for XA <> 11, XB <> 12, XC <> 13 .. XF <> 16 
  
-**Mozaic scripting engine:** 
-  @OnMidiInput 
-    outputTo = 5 
-    SendMIDIOut MIDICommand+(outputTo-1),​ MIDIByte2, MIDIByte3 
-  @End
