Eastwest Play and Separate MIDI Channels

I never used the EastWest Play plugin in Multi-output mode until just the other day. In LOGIC Pro X (I haven’t tried it in the earlier version yet)  you have to make sure that you set the channel that you use for the plugin to “All Channels” or else no matter what MIDI channel you throw at will just trigger MIDI channel 1. Certainly a classic “RTFM” situation on my behalf but it is what it is. Almost everything I do is around creating a situation that will make it possible to continually make music so reading 60 manuals (some monolithic) falls short on the time priority list. Luckily I have 35 years of music creating experience and 20 years experience with working with computers so my intuitive database is pretty extensive and I can usually figure out any issues that come my way (plus there’s Google).


Work is progressing on my new album “My Hat is a Synthesizer”. I’ve got 7 tunes almost done and ready for the last mix stage. I haven’t used any guitars in this project and it’s a real divergence direction and style wise (compared to what I have done up to now). I may even get accused of “selling out” but believe me that isn’t the case. Trust me there is very little “selling” going on (“out” or in any other way).  In any case I think it will raise a few eyebrows (maybe 2 – if I’m lucky) and may reach a few more people’s fancy.

BTW – If you’re into it, there is a new App that just came out based on my CD project “Crowded Moon”. It’s free and available at http://www.reverbnation.com/kevinatwood/app. (only for Android format available at this time).
