I have a rackspace that gives me hammond organ on the upper keyboard and “piano” on the lower keyboard. The organ, of course, has many of the usual clonewheel parameters exposed as widgets, and the “piano” is actually a song-specific mix of six different instruments (grand piano, upright piano, rhodes e.p., wurlitzer e.p., clavinet, and DX7 e.p.), where the selection and mix is defined in widgets, along with a few other options such as tremolo, phaser, drive, and chorus. I figure this one rackspace will suffice for at least fifty of the songs in my band’s setlist. I’ve decided not to create rackspace variations for each song; instead, I’ll use song-part snapshots to store the widget settings needed for each song.
My question is this: let’s say I have a song that uses organ and upright piano and has multiple song parts. For this song, the piano should sound the same across all the song parts, but the organ drawbars are variable from one song part to the next. Now, let’s say I’ve spent a lot of time getting the organ sounds right in each song part, and then I realise that I want to modify the piano sound. I want the piano to be identical in all song parts, so do I have to go to each one separately and make the same changes to the piano widgets? Or is there a way to specify that some of the widgets should “ignore song parts”, just as in the panel view one can specify that some widgets “ignore variations”?
