Ok, I've recently purchased a few extra synths for my studio, bringing my total of synths from 4 to 7. I'm now getting a bit overwhelmed at how to manage my MIDI wiring. I only have an Audiofire 12 with 1 MIDI in / 1 MIDI out Ideally, I would like: 1. To be able to play every of my non-keyboard synths without having to go through a DAW. This means depending on MIDI cable connections instead of USB connections. 2. Have access to a PC Librarian/Editor for each of my synths. This is easily doable through USB for some of my synths (Nord Stage, Minitaur, Virus Indigo II). For others, it can only be done through MIDI/SysEx. Here's my list of synth for reference: -Nord Stage -Prophet 08 -Yamaha TX81Z -Kurzweil K2000R -Moog Minitaur -OTO Biscuit -Virus Indigo II So how do you all manage your MIDI connections? I know synths can be "chained" with MIDI cables serially, but have no experience in the matter. Would I have to set specific channels? How would that work? It gets especially confusing for librarians use as I have no experience whatsoever with Sysex. Let's say my MIDI connection setup goes like this: Audiofire -> Nord Stage -> Prophet 08 -> Yamaha TX81Z -> Kurzweil K2000R -> Audiofire -If I want to use a PC Librarian for the TX81Z, how would I set it up so that it doesn't screw up the patches on my other synths? Any insight in the matter would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
