Make multiple cable connections

There is no limit to the number of cables that you can plug in to a destination object. All MIDI signals are mixed at the object’s input.

Make multiple output connections from an object

  1. Connect the object to a destination object.

    Once an output from an object is used (cabled to another object), another output triangle automatically appears.

    Figure. Showing multiple output connections between objects.
  2. Use the second output triangle to create a second cable connection to another destination object.

    Once this is done, a third output triangle appears, and so on.

Some objects have special outputs, and can’t be connected this way. One example is channel splitter objects, which feature several (functionally different) outputs. Other special objects include cable switchers and physical input objects. With these objects, each output can only be used once.

Route the signal of special object outputs to several destinations

  1. Create a monitor object by choosing New > Monitor.

  2. Plug the cable from the desired object output into the monitor object.

  3. Create a cable from the monitor object to as many other destinations as you wish.

    The monitor object allows you to view the MIDI events flowing through it.

Connect several cables to a common destination

  1. Select the cables.

    Tip: If the cables are already connected to a common destination, the simplest way to do this is to select the destination object.

  2. Drag one of the cables to a new destination object.

    You’re asked if you want to connect all selected cables to the new destination.

  3. Click Connect, or press Return.
