Re: Repeater MIDI controller question

I just got my Behringer controller last night, and since I first read this
post wrong, it's possible that others did too.

I thought that program changes go on one midi channel, ccs on another etc.
(In retrospect, multiple PC commands on the same midi channel make no
sense.) >Each< of the program changes, CCs and expression pedals and the
midi note can be set to a different midi channel. I.E. Globally all of the
Program changes #1 go on one midi channel, all the Program changes #2 can 
to a different channel etc. etc.

This still means you can only control one midi note out channel, and the
expression pedals are set for one channel use :< But it means that you can
control up to 5 devices via PC and 2 via CC from the unit. Cool!
