Default 2 MIDI Controllers for 2 Virtual Instrument tracks

Does anyone know how to get 2 Virtual Instruments working with two separate MIDI external controllers, each on their own track? I can do it with MIDI tracks and the instruments on Aux inputs, but I need them on the instruments so that my Extra controllers (MIDI CC's etc) also communicate with the Virtual Instrument.

create an instrument track set the routing the same way you did with the aux.

Default Re: 2 MIDI Controllers for 2 Virtual Instrument tracks

I do it all the time here, with 2 or even 3 separate controllers. The tricks to making it work involve showing the Instrument in the MIX window(select View>Mix Windows Show>Instruments). That adds a row across the top of the MIX window where you can set each instrument track to look at a particular controller device. 2 other notes; you may hear nothing or cross-triggering until the tracks are in record-ready(hold the Alt key while selecting record on 1 Instrument track to get all to engage). You also may need to go into Preferences>Midi tab and select NONE as the default thru instrument. Working fine here with a Roland kit, a Motif es8 and a cheap Ensoniq keyboard for Addictive Drums. MiniGrand and DB-33.
