Yesterday I had a rather intensive session with the Pyramid, still loving it, but one thing that has bothered me since day one is the lack of instrument definitions…
Let me explain: I have a fairly large set of gear using up all 32 midi channels (A&B).
I do not only need to memorise the channel of each device, also which port it is on (A or B). Of course I have cheat sheets for this, but it’s not fun to work like this, especially not knowing that this is something the Pyramid could perfectly handle (in theory).
I just want to be able to alternate midi channel selection with an instrument selection menu. Additionaly such a definition could also include presets for controller asignments and other specfics…
Maybe even an alternate display (non-piano roll) for drum tracks, showing only the rows (notes) that actually have sounds assigned, like can be done in Cubase.
But if such a thing is too much work/hassle, an alternative solution would work pretty well for me:
Allow a global custom name for midi channels
That way, when selecting your midi channel, the same menu could display the name of the midi channel. E.g; Channel 1A: Alpha Juno
