I have an old Roland E-15. This is from the user manual:
What can I expect from the synth according to this. The manual mentions that it's a multi timbral synth. I'd expect it to receive several midi channels, one instrument per channel. This is what omni means, right? The synth has some built in music station capabilities, where you can create multi track music. And this "GS" page refers to its midi capabilities. But in the MODE section, it mentions only Mode 3. And in the page foot it says Mode 3 is OMNI OFF, POLY. Does this mean the synth only except note on messages from one channel at a time, and therefore only one instrument patch can be used at a time.
I'm working on a laser string guitar, where I wish to let each string trigger note on events on its own channel. Each string could create only one tone at a time, but two strings could produce the same tone as two separate note on events, as well as two separate note off events (actually note on with velocity 0). I'd also like to be able to assign different instrument patches to different strings.
