the keyboard octave setting affects the midi input on instruments…
it makes sense when triggering instruments directly using currently selected inst, but not when you want to have an instrument driven directly/specifically with the midi input option.
Do you mean with this device:
If so, adding a single toggle for ‘Enable/Disable octave modifier’ makes sense.
NB: Mods: Should this be moved to ‘Ideas & Suggestions’ forum?
i think he means that when playing a midi controller you can shift octaves with * and /. the original midi message is actually filtered through this setting.
i guess it can be a bit confusing if you controller shows what “octave offset” is currently active.
