Customer Question
I am on Mac...

I am on Mac OS X. I have an external Midi controller (Yamaha CP33) via USB. I have a software instrument (Lounge Lizard Electric Piano simulator). Works fine.l I want to split the input so that only notes above F#2 go to Lounge Lizard. The rest go to some electric bass sound. There is one on the CP33 that is good. A software bass would be fine with me though. HOW???

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Yamaha CP33 may 5 years old. MacBook pro 1 year old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

You are not real.

You can use software to re-rout, merge, and split MIDI messages.

You could use SimpleSynth: http://notahat.com/simplesynth/

Note that you MUST have two different ports involved:

MIDI message generator –> Port1 –> SomeOtherProgram –> Port2 –> SimpleSynth

If you try to use just a single port, you’ll get a feedback loop.

Most USB hardware MIDI controllers make their own port show up on the system when plugged in. In these cases, you can have a somewhat simpler setup:

HardwareNamePort –> SomeOtherProgram –> SomeVirtualPort -> SimpleSynth
