Fsynthz has released ProgAte, a MIDI processor/router, allowing you to control up to 8 synths with one MIDI keyboard.
You send midi program changes, together with all the rest midi events, to ProgAte. ProgAte splits and filters the stream, remaps the ProgChange messages – and outputs the processed midi stream, one channel per synth (up to 8 for one instance of ProgAte).
- Program changes remapping.
- Layers/splits (velocity range, key range).
- Volume adjustments.
- Synths switching on/off.
- Pitch bend and controllers filtering off.
ProgAte for Windows (VST) is available to download as freeware.
