Scriptorium : Channel Rotate

By Dan Powell | 14th January 2014

unlocked-header-big
In the comments of the last KSP post Kevin suggested an idea for a channel rotate script, much like the Alternate Assign MIDI mode of some early Yamaha synths like the TX-81Z or TX-802.   In this mode, each note received was sent to a successive channel in the multi.  It made for some interesting...
