Keyboard split 2 machines

Keyboard split 2 machines

I was wondering if it was possible to split the keyboard only for the sake of playing another instrument via midi and keep all eight voices for the other keyboard half. I donít think the Rev firmware allows that. Maybe with an external midi processor. Any idea ?

Possible solution -- turn Local MIDI off, route MIDI to connected iPad, re-route reconfigured MIDI back to Rev2, with THRU going to your 2nd board.

MIDIflow is a very flexible app, and can split / remap / filter / re-assign all kinds of MIDI events.

Thanks for your reply. So doesnít seem possible to do that with just the rev.
Iíll try my chance with a Max device as I already own Ableton but no ipad midi interface.

Of course you could try this trick to see if it works --

Split the Rev2, but set the volume to 0 for the side you will use to play the other instrument.  Rev2 allocates voices dynamically, so it might work good enough depending on what you play.

hmm not with 8 voices.

Found https://www.bome.com/products/bomebox or https://blokas.io/midihub/that may  do the job

Ok I finally found a ridiculously simple solution using Ableton.
  • Create an instrument rack with 2 external instruments.
  • Split keyboard
  • End

Can't believe I struggled so long on something so simple.
Just when you think you know Ableton...

Whoops I almost suggested that but didn't know you had a computer in the chain. Yay Ableton!
