AU polyphony settings?
Does anybody know of a way to set the polyphony of individual AUs (tracks), as opposed to the polyphony of a sampled (internal) pad (pad in the BM3 on-screen button sense)?
I have 2 tracks with AUs to act as layering on input MIDI channel 1, and 1 track with an AU on input MIDI channel 10. The input is from external USB MIDI for all of these tracks.
I can play on channel 1 just fine (one layer is KQ Dixie with a transient patch, the other is Lorentz, which has a pad/drone type of patch). However, when I start playing the drums into channel 10 (a drum kit on bs-16i), the drum track very quickly steals notes away from my "drone" and cause it to drop out.
I would like to limit polyphony on the drums to perhaps 2 or 3 notes, so priority goes to my drone/pad track. Any ideas? Or is total vs per-track polyphony not even the issue???
Footnote: it's unfortunate that the word "pad" in this discussion can mean either of two things: a slow/sustained patch vs a button on the screen :-(
