Only engine 1 responding to all MIDI channels?

With GURU 1.6 and LIve8.02 on XP

When sending MIDI data to GURU (vst) from a nanoKONTROL, on channels other than 1:

Live correctly shows the channel it is receiving data on (e.g. 2), but GURU responds as if the data were being sent on channel 1 - i.e. only Engine 1 responds. I've tried all different channels and the problem is the same.

Anyone with similar, or fixes, or help?

Many thanks

I'm afraid no matter what you do, LIVE will merge all midi input streams into a signal stream on channel #1 into the instrument track. This is why you can't trigger the other engines when hosting in LIVE - GURU will only receive data from LIVE on channel #1.

You might want to look around for some MIDI loop-back tool that will help you get around this limitation.

You could try using something like Plogue Bidule as a VSTi inside live.
