How To Use LinnStrument’s Channel Per Note Capabilities With Cubase

Developer Geert Bevin (Moog Music) shared this video tutorial, which looks at using LinnStrument’s ‘ChannelPerNote‘ feature works and how it can be used with Cubase to play VST 2 synths that support it.

Using one Channel Per Note is a way of sending polyphonic MIDI date, using a separate MIDI channel for each note.

The video also demonstrates Cubase’s Note Expression feature, which allows you to record all the nuances with per-note visualization and editing.

The synth used in this demo is U-he DIVA.

Three-dimensional expressive control is a emerging area for MIDI controllers, and software support is still developing. Roger Linn has a guide to DAWs and software instruments that support the LinnStrument’s advanced capabilities at his site.

  1. I tried driving two notes on two different MIDI channels into a single instance of Diva using Ableton Live but was not able to get a per-note expression. Is this a unique feature of Cubase? I am interested in driving Diva from a guitar synth.

  2. I just set up separate MIDI tracks in Live sending different MIDI channels to a single Diva instance on its own track. It seems to work fine. Thank you for posting this!

  3. Geert is the man when it comes to this stuff! Great demo & discussion, as always.

    If the music industry ever gets its polyphonic expression act together, we will owe I in large part to this guy’s evangelism, coding chops and passion.

    I am really interested to see if Moog is smart enough to realize what they got, with him as an employee. They are well-positioned to create the most expressive polyphonic synth today.
