Hi everyone!

Has anybody had any luck setting up Divisimate Micro in Unify Standalone?

I loaded up Divisimate Micro on a Layer.  Its Input Ports show up in Unify Settings and I've check-boxed them to enable those ports.

However, the Divisimate's Ports are not showing up in the Layer's MIDI Input menu.

Unfortunately, Divisimate Micro only uses Ports unlike its big brother Divisimate Pro which can be setup with different MIDI Channels.

NextMIDI did mention in a youtube post that they're considering adding MIDI Channels to Micro, but until then, is there a workaround?

It'd be so much easier to use Micro in Unify than running the whole Pro app.  With Micro, I can setup my chord presets per Unify patch which I can't do in the Pro app.

Thanks for any help 🙂

That's going to be a mess, but I suppose it's doable in the Unify stand-alone app (not the plug-in).

You should be able to create one MIDI Controller File for each virtual MIDI port you want to use, which does nothing but change the MIDI channel, so that the virtual MIDI ports end up getting redirected to e.g. MIDI channels 2, 3, 4, and 5 (or whatever you choose). Then you can select those channels on individual INST layers.

The MIDI Controller files will each look something like this:

VIRTUAL PORT NAME

convChannel 2

Substitute the actual virtual port name (or any unique prefix thereof) on the top line, and put the appropriate MIDI channel number after "convChannel".

Thanks Shane! I'm still testing it out, but I think it worked !!!

Here's what I did...

I made 4 text files in the MIDI Controller Files folder called:

Divisimate Port 01.txt

Divisimate Port 02.txt

Divisimate Port 03.txt

Divisimate Port 04.txt

Those are also the Virtual Port Names inside the text files.

I used the convChannel command to convert Port 01 to Channel 2, 02 to Channel 3, 03 to Channel 4 & 04 to Channel 5.

I loaded up Divisimate Micro on the 1st Layer with MIDI Channel 01.

Then I loaded up 4 more layers on MIDI Channels 2 to 5.

The reason Divisimate needs its own MIDI Channel is because Divisimate said it was getting a MIDI feedback loop. When I put it on its own Channel, the feedback loop message disappeared.

Just tested it out with Audiomodeling Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Bari, sending it 4-part harmonies from my Synthophone.  It works great! And wasn't messy at all ! lol 

Thanks again Shane. You rock !!!

Great news, I'm so glad it worked.

Please contact NextMIDI and let them know how adding the option to output on separate MIDI channels instead of virtual ports would make this awesomely easy to use in Unify, and let them know you've tested it using this workaround so you know it will be useful!
