Bad Mister, thanks for your quick response. What I am trying to do is play the Montage piano (multi part) on the Montage keyboard. On my Nord I want to play let's say some strings and another instrument, coming from the Montage, as a split or layered. I'm using my Nord as an extra keyboard.You are not using the MONTAGE as a MIDI Controller. Your description says you are transmitting from the Nord into the MONTAGE... the Nord is playing strings (?) layered or split with another MONTAGE sound (?) is that right?
Improved MIDI capability with a hybrid MIDI mode makes integrating MONTAGE or MODX with MIDI gear even easier.
I was afraid that would be the conclusion. Doesn't anybody use the Montage as a live instrument anymore? Without the need for a laptop? I considered this to be the main improvement in version 3.0...I use it as a live instrument together with a MODX. I use an IPad connected to the Montage with Camelot. Works pretty well and I was using the IPad for the score sheets anyway. It was even connected via MIDI already because I use some button on the Montage for flipping pages.

I am totally astonished as to why they chose not to implement freely assignable midi receive channels. It seems ridiculous. Maybe it is just not the way the designers intend the device to be used.
Does Hybrid Mode relegate parts 1 -8 to a single receive channel and retain the hard coded channels 9 -16? Is there any documentation on hybrid mode?Not exactly. MIDI I/O Mode = Hybrid takes all Parts actively linked by the KBD CTRL Function and allows you address them on a Single selected MIDI Channel, and whenever you are playing (in communication) with any of these “linked” Parts you will be transmitting on that selected MIDI Channel.
