Banks and Channels

Hello, how do I set up one bank to send messages on Channel 1 and another bank to send messages on Channel 2?  I'm trying to communicate with multiple pieces of equipment.  Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure whether I understand what you mean by "bank".
But if you're talking about the MSB/LSB Bank messages sent by the "MIDI program changer" window:
This window only allows you to send bank and program messages you define "on the fly"; it does not "maintain" the banks and programs of all channels of all devices. It would be quite a bit of work to add this functionality.
Please keep in mind that MIDI Tools was created as a testing environment, not as a full MIDI sequencer application.

Mark.

Thanks Mark, what I meant by "bank" was - on the FCB1010, presets 1 - 10 = "bank 1", presets 11 - 20 = "bank 2", etc.  I've never dived into MSB/LSB.  The "spreadsheet" view of the program is what I've been using.
