no, pads are always notes… the midi channel is a fixed attribute of the track.
I cannot think of a reasonable workaround on the Pyramid, since its requires different tracks. (*)
(its not really what the Pyramid was designed for…)
you could send a feature request to Squarp via the contact form, see if its a feature they’d like to add to the Pyramid.
outside of the Pyramid, you could get something like a BomeBox or Blokas Midihub.
these are midi processor, so could take the different note outputs from the pyramid and convert them into notes on different midi channels.
This would be my approach…
(Ive a blokas Midihub, and find it fantastic for this kind of midi mangling )
(*) k, you could do something with a midi loopback (pyramid midi out-> midi in),
then one track sends to multiple other tracks, with different midi channels, and uses a note filter on each track so that it ‘hears’ one note.
so track 16-> midi B (connected to midi in on pyramid)
track 1-8, output on midi A 1-8, then use a note filter fx to only process one note, then a scale fx to move the note to C4.
but honestly, this a huge faff, and not something I would do … and might have some latency.
