You can see a diagram of my current setup here.
I’m planning on adding a Novation SL49 mk3 keyboard controller for various purposes (Ableton control, controlling Digitakt and Syntakt, arp and chord features on all devices, etc.).
My goal has been to have the Digitakt as the sequencer/brain of my setup, and it currently controls everything nicely.
With adding a keyboard, my first thought is to run midi out of the Novation SL49 into the Digitakt and use auto channel so that as I switch tracks on the Digitakt, it and the keyboard are controlling the various external synths. But this seems limiting because then I can’t map the knobs and faders on the keyboard for each device, right?
Is there a better way to handle having the Digitakt be the midi master for sequencing but still have direct midi access to each synth with the Novation SL49? The only thing I’ve come up with is replacing my Midi Thru box with something like the Conductive Labs 880 Midi Router.
Thanks in advance for any advice you all might have!
