Thanks! :beers:

Hello,
I just getting started with setting up rackspaces/variations. My question has to do with handling program changes. So I have a ac pno patch on my bottom (of two) kybds. But I don’t always know what patch I want to use for the top kybd (i.e. for soloing). I may want something that cuts through or something that is mellower. Should I make multiple rackspaces or variations with patches that I think I might want to use or should I have one rackspace and set it up so I can choose the patch (for the top kybd) on the fly? It seems like a lot of work to make many variations with different lead patches. Thanks! Dan

If your bottom keyboard stays as ac piano, you could consider to have this as an “omnipresent” instrument in the global rackspace and add the other (changing) sounds from local rackspaces/variations… that would IMHO be the ideal mix of reliability and flexibility.
