OK, challenge accepted :)
Although I just remembered something. What I tried to do back then was
to make separate control, say a rotary switch, or set of keys, to change
on the fly MIDI channel separately for each incoming channel. It turned
out to be absolute nightmare from user point of view considering how
this setup needed to be done. But maybe I'll get back to that later with
more user friendly idea.
There is global channel change feature for all incoming MIDI, so with
one control you can change channels of whatever comes in. It is
available since 2012 as I've checked the files now. It was so long ago
that I forgot it is already there! :)
So (blantant spamming starts here) all you need is my MRG2 controller,
with the KEYPAD. Then you can use the numbers on the KEYPAD to select
MIDI channel of whatever you plug to MIDI IN. That is if 1 to 9 is enough.
