Control instrument rack with sidechain?

Post by daveberzack » Fri Sep 11, 2020 8:48 pm

I would like to change which midi instrument in the chain is triggered based on an external value, like a sidechain. For example, I want to chain up legato/staccato/pizzicato versions of an orchestral string, and then specify which sound is played as I hit the keys. Currently I'm working around this by assigning based on velocity, but that limits and kludges up the velocity expression. Is this possible? Thanks!

Check '18.5.4 Chain Select Zones' in the manual.

I think this is what you are looking for.
