Hey folks. I’ve been using the standalone version successfully for a few months now, where I essentially send my guitar chords to an instance of Omnisphere inside ableton 11, and use the sustain “Forward to instrument” and “hold instrument, switch to guitar” so I can hold the pad while I improvise over top.
I’ve decided to try using the plugin version instead now, but I can’t figure out why the sustain pedal option
“hold instrument, switch to guitar”" isn’t working with it:
First attempt included Midi track with Omnishere and an Audio track with MG2, with the midi input on the Omnisphere track set to “Midi Guitar #2.out”. Didn’t work.
second attempt was the place MG2 on a midi track with an Ext Audio effect feeding the audio of the guitar to MG2, and then routing midi to omnisphere track from the “Midi Guitar #2.out”. Didn’t work
Repeated #2 but changed the midi routing to omnisphere from the midi track with the MG2 plugin. SUSTAIN WORKS, but not the “hold instrument, switch to guitar”. ALMOST THERE
Sooo… any ideas how to obtain the use of this important Sustain feature in the plugin version to allow me to hold the notes played while I improvise over the top?
