Hi

Genos has great potential as a Multitimbral  sound module for multi track recording in a Computer DAW.
I set up Genos in Sonar and was able to assign outputs to multiple midi channels. I've learned that Genos is 32 part multitimbral . When you plug the USB to Host from Genos to the computer, it provides two midi ports Digital Workstation 1 and  Digital Workstation 2, each has 16 midi channels! So it possible to use 32 Genos voices at once in a DAW multi-track recording !

As I explore this functionality I discovered some anomalies like, when I open Sonar with the Genos setup, I lose local control of the Genos. All sound stops when I attempt to play panel voices or styles etc. The loss of local control persists even after I exit Sonar. I have to restart Genos to regain local control.

There as no information about this topic in the Genos User Manual, Reference Manual or Computer Related Operations PDF.

Can anyone direct me to any videos or articles on Multitibral / DAW integration of Genos with DAW? I want to learn more.


Thank You

Sonar
with the courtesy of Etienne VLBRGT.
Try this :
First make copy (backup) from original "INI"-file !!!
so you can restore if not satisfied.
(I encountered no problems)

Search for file "TTSSEQ.INI" in Sonarfiles on your PC.
(on my PC : C\users\owner\appdata\roaming\Cakewalk\Sonar)

-open this file with notepad
(afterwards must be saved as ASCII code without layout)
 if this doesn't work > select "Save" "All files" instead of ".txt"

-you'll see this (could be little different):

[Options]
PumpDataMsec=250
[MIDI Input Devices]
0=Digital Keyboard-1
MaxInPort=0
[MIDI Output Devices]
0=Digital Workstation-1
MaxOutPort=0
[MIDI Echo Devices]
MaxEchoPort=-1

-Beneat "Options" add exactly next commands:

SendLocalOn=1
SendLocalOff=0


new TTSSEQ.INI is then like this:

[Options]
PumpDataMsec=250
SendLocalOn=1
SendLocalOff=0
[MIDI Input Devices]
0=Digital Keyboard-1
MaxInPort=0
[MIDI Output Devices]
0=Digital Workstation-1
MaxOutPort=0
[MIDI Echo Devices]
MaxEchoPort=-1


Explanation:
SendLocalOn=1 : closing Sonar sets your keyboard again on "Local ON";
SendLocalOff=0 : commands that when opening Sonar your kbd. won't be set in "Local OFF".
