Further insight into Omni: There is some
magic that happens with Omni in two
In the case of Omni connecting a mono
audio track to another track having two or more channels (ie. a stereo
MusE will automatically split
(copy) that mono signal to both
of the first two channels of the other track.
Because, it was the right thing to do.
Similarly, in the case of Omni connecting an audio track having two or more channels (ie. a stereo
track) to another mono
MusE will automatically mix
the first two channels of the source track to form the mono
signal to the other mono track.
Again, day-to-day most users might never need to visit the 'channel' popup sub-menus in the routing popup menus.
I had hoped it would be obvious from the fact the none of the 'channel' route lights are ever lit by default and instead the Omni button is on,
that this is what Omni does - it 'just works' automatically connecting your tracks.
For more fine-grained control users can go to the 'channels' routes and use them.
Small caveat: Please be aware folks, that Omni AND
channel routing buttons can be lit at the same time,
and the resulting signal will be a mixture
of both Omni sound and 'channels' sound.
So remember to turn off Omni when using channels
Yeah, I know, I really must make them exclusive but there were conceptual problems at the time. (Lord knows, someone
might actually want the mixture, etc. etc.)
On the Midi side of things, if I recall correctly, I was
able to make the Omni button take priority over the 'channels' routes
(an obvious one, it simply accepts all channels regardless of any clicked channels).
No harm when both are on, no 'double notes' or such.
