Midiox software 2nd page
Next you open the 2nd midiox script. This opens a third midiox window. A midiox data map for this instance of midiox blocks the receiving of all control messages and notes played on channel 4. So this instance of midiox basically deals with the notes played on the manuals and pedal board.
With my setup a fourth midiox window needs to be opened which uses "midiyoke" software (see www.midiox.com) to divert all midi inputs to a "midiyoke junction" which is used as the mid input for the first and third midiox windows.
I know this all sounds dreadfully complicated, but once it has been set up for the first time it is actually very easy to load and use - and best of all it works beautifully.
You may well wonder why there are separate instances of midiox for dealing with note on/off messages and system exclusive and control messages. Does not this lead to a more complicated and obscure setup than needed? In some ways it does, yes: but having separate instances means that the long system exclusive messages can be sent in chunks, milliseconds apart. This means that stop changes in "running" passages can be achieved without breaks in the sound. Otherwise sending a SCPOP system exclusive message "mutes" for a short while the part you are playing.
See my screen below with all midiox windows open.
