Is it possible to have multiple instruments in one MIDI track over time?
I just recorded a live set of me jamming on a bunch of different MIDI instruments over the course of half an hour or so. I have an APC20 AKA 8 easy to reach hardware tracks, so I only used 8 tracks. However, I used about 12 instruments, which meant that I replaced four of the tracks at different points in my performance. (e.g. I played for 15 minutes, then switched tracks 2 and 3 to be a different instrument to allow for a new sound).
Now when I listen to the arrangement view recording, it seems that ONLY the instruments that I never changed will play back. I realize now that each track can hold one instrument and that the recorded MIDI will just control whatever instrument is in place. I know that for the future, each instrument will need to be recorded in it's own track.
However, for now - is there any way to remedy this situation? Do I need to essentially create a new track for each instrument I have and copy the midi track into there and load in the corresponding instrument? Is there any simpler way to do this, or will I just need to manually go through and copy and move stuff elsewhere?
Best, and thanks for reading through this,
