Hi,

I have a question about MIDI usage in live situations.
If there is another thread with the same question, I'm sorry, please redirect me to it.

So, my problem is: I want to use Reaper as a vst host for live performance while I'm playing keyboard. I have my instrument connected via MIDI with Reaper. Then i have a foot controller Behringer FCB1010 to use as a switch for changing sounds, connected to the Reaper via MIDI too. In Reaper i have my tracks, everyone with a loaded Kontakt instance with a different instrument.

Basically, what I want to do is: arm every track for recording (i will use no more than 10 tracks and averyone has MIDI input channel from 2 to X), then in a separate track reciving from all midi channels, apply an FX (JS Midi Tool Vs? JS Midi Route Note to Channel?) that, controlled by the foot switch allows me to route keyboard's incoming midi note to the instrument's track that i want to play and that is reciving on the channel i selected.

I was thinking that maybe can be problems with the midi messages incoming from the switch, as they are midi and can be routed to tracks too..

I have no other ideas to use reaper live, i tried to make multiple snapshots (with one track armed per time) with SWS and recall them with the switch. Everything fine, but the problem is the big lag i have recalling those scenes with kontakt (i need a zero lag change, from that my idea to let all the tracks enable and just re-route the midi incoming notes).
