hmtoggle_arrow1 MIDI Channel

 

For Virtual Instrument Tracks, you can assign a lane to a specific MIDI channel.  This is especially useful for multitimbral instruments.   Right click on an empty part of a lane and then click on "Lanes" followed by "MIDI Channel" followed by clicking a channel from 1 to 16 or "All".

Recording with lanes is convenient. If you are recording over an area that already has sound data, it will automatically create or find an empty lane.  This is especially useful in loop recording mode.
